Fodor's Review

Live like the prospectors did in the olden days and stay in one of the authentic, rustic cabins. Each has a small washstand with a bowl and a pitcher of water, and it's a short walk to the main house's bathroom and shower. Rooms in the lodge, built in 1904 as the town's hotel, are larger, have private bathrooms, cost a couple of bucks more, and share a kitchen downstairs. There are patchwork curtains and ample bed coverings. The red velvet wallpaper was reportedly hung

by a pair of chic New Yorkers who ran the place in the 1960s, allegedly prompting a "Jazz Age" revival in the ghost town, replete with gourmet dinners and Paris gowns. Current innkeepers Barbara and Bob Townsend are gracious raconteurs whose breakfast salon doubles as a gallery featuring local artists. The inn borrows its name from the real, nearby ghost town of Miner's Delight. Writers are encouraged to finish and hawk their works here. The "two bit" Cowboy Saloon by the downstairs fireplace has not only a beautiful hand-carved bar, but also the state's best selection of single-malt scotch—aficionados drive miles for periodic tasting events.
