Virginian Hotel Review

Inspired by the Owen Wister novel The Virginian, this sandstone hotel was built in 1909 and has been operating nearly continuously ever since. Claw-foot tubs, tulip-shape lights, and brass beds with comforters fill the Victorian-style rooms. The rooms in the main hotel don't have TVs, phones, or radios (most don't even have electrical outlets), but the atmosphere more than makes up for the lack of amenities. In the main hotel only the suites have private bathrooms; rooms in the Bunkhouse Motel annex have TVs and bathrooms. The dining room ($$–$$$), with antique oak furniture and 19th-century photographs, serves American fare such as steak and chicken.
