Mount Vista Lodge Hotel to Be Built, 1926

From The Chatsworth Times ,
April 8, 1926:

Mount Vista Lodge Hotel

On Monday of this week ground was broken at Mount Vista for the "Mount Vista Lodge Hotel," which, when completed, will be the only hotel of its kind, constructed entirely of solid logs, in this section of the United States.

This new summer resort hotel will be a commodious and convenient hostelry, with every appointment for the comfort and convenience of the guests. The building will be 120 feet long by 60 feet wide, and two stories high.

On the first floor will be located four parlor rooms, two on each side of the ball room, with lounging rooms for both men and women. The lobby, running across one end of this floor, will be 25 by 40 feet, and the dining rooms, at the other end, of the same dimension. The ball room 25 by 75 feet, will have at each end a large fire place, 5 by 4 feet, 36 inches deep

The second floor will contain fourteen small and four large guest rooms, with glass windows in an unbroken line entirely around the building.

A 10-foot promenading veranda will completely encircle the hotel.

The building will be constructed of solid logs on a rock foundation and will be covered with wood shingles. The kitchen will be located in the basement.

The hotel will be equipped with electric lights, running water, toilets, and baths.

The construction work is under the supervision of Mr. H. L. Hutchison, manager of Mount Vista. Mr. C. C. Reetz, owner and developer of the property stated this week to a representative of The Times that the hotel would be ready for guests in June.
