Hello from Kremmling, CO Hotel Eastin
Friday Evening – February 1, 2019 (First post of this travelogue)
Pat and I are making a quick trip to Kremmling to attend a funeral of a very neat lady that was in Pat’s downline. We are staying at a very unique hotel – Hotel Eastin (Google map link). More about the hotel later.
We chose to take the I 70 route to Silverthorn and then up CO 9 to Kremmiling. The weather was nice and the road conditions were great. We will probably be going back US 40 tomorrow.
The funeral was for Erle Lynne Jones. It was held in the high school. Well over 100 folks were in attendance. Erle Lynne was the kind of woman that you just naturally loved. She has been in Pat’s downline for 13 years. She has been fighting cancer for around 25 years. She passed away a few days ago at the age of 70. The service was beautiful.
The Hotel Eastin is a neat historic building. It was built in 1906 as a sarsaparilla factory. The first floor was the factory and the second story was a rooming house. Over the years it housed a barber shop, drug store and dress shop. The current owners bought the building 13 years ago and began restoring each room. Some of the rooms are “boarding” rooms with a common bath “down the hall”. Other rooms are “theme” rooms with a bath. Our room is called the Zane Grey room. It is said that he stayed here and got the inspiration for his book: The Mysterious Rider. As you will see from the photos the room is very small, but well decorated.
That is all for this trip.
