On July 27, 2010 my wife and her friend from Japan stayed overnight at the
Iron Horse Inn Bed & Breakfast at 526 Marie Ave - PO Box 629 - South Cle Elum, WA 98943
The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places, and cared for by Mary and Doug Pittis a husband and wife team that takes it very serious when it comes to making sure you are satisfied and happy with your visit.
Mary takes care of the guest, while Doug the chief cook and bottle washer, a graduate of the American Culinary School, whips up a delicious mouthwatering breakfast. Believe me you won’t go away hungry here.
The Inn itself is a historic building were the crews of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad and served until 1974 as temporary housing for men who had the job of getting trains over some of the most hazardous tracks in the country. Each of the rooms are named after a crew member that actually stayed there. The room décor are a little frilly for a man, however, all the room are extremely clean and smoke free.
This is the type of place, where you let the younger ones bicycle, very little traffic on the roads, and spend some time either reading a book or viewing the many historic pictures and antiques of the old railroad times, and there are many to see.
I stayed in the Inn, and the ladies opted to stay in one of the four cabooses, I think it will be the reverse the next time we stay there.
