More tables on the deck.  With no flowing water in the river the place was deserted.
We did meet another couple and two old timers complete with white beards.


Another angle.  Note signs on the ceiling.

The whole scene dripped with rustic flavor.
The safety railing at the top of the steep bank to the river was made of old bedsteads.


Ground level along the river in back of the hotel.  More rustic.


Walk across the bridge to see this.  Old junk on the cobblestone wall included wheels, a large pully,
and a completely rotted axle with wheel hubs.  The pink flimingo sets it all off.  Rustic in spades.

Another angle, to see the shape of the lower retaining wall and a better view of the rotted axle


That's me, sitting on an iron-and-stone bench built into the retaining wall.
The upper retaining wall forms the river end of the hotel side yard.

View back toward the hotel and bridge, plus a stair down to the river.
Now you can see clearly that the railings are made from old ore-car tracks.

Hotel viewed from the side yard mentioned previously.  These rooms are above the bar. 
A symmetric row on the other side is above the restaurant.  Didn't have time to go inside to explore.


 

Another side yard view, with emphasis on the hotel.


The rest of the hotel and a stage/dance floor for events and fun.
The main street through town is on the other side of the wall on the left.
