Sleep in a Wigwam


Not very far away from the farmette resides a little piece of history in the shape of tipis.  


Built in 1937, the Wigwam Village Hotel is still in use today.  For about $70 dollars a night you can rest in the luxury of the original hickory and cane furnishings, with a private bath.    



Originally seven Wigwam Villages were built across the country.  Frank A. Redford patented the design in 1936.  Today, only three remain.  One here in Kentucky, one in Holbrook Arizona, and one in Rialto, California.  


Secret Agent Farmer Man told me he stayed here as a kid.  

I am jealous.  

I might have to take corrective action.

  1. You may have to take corrective action; and I think you should. A very unique style with all the necessary amenities.

  6. Would love to see the inside of one. Not sure whether I'd like to sleep in one though. My camping days are sorta behind me. Used to tent camp and always enjoyed it, now Marriott has my number, lol. Popped in from a mutual friends blog.

  17. Looks fun. We went to a wedding recently, where the reception was held in three, massive, teepees. It was like being in fairyland - and they had two huge fires burning too. Story is that the bride couldn't decide between this and a marquee - of course, her future husband told her she was in danger of being two tents...
