Our Story: The Art of an Innkeeper
Welcome to Creekside Inn,
Growing up in the hotel business, I watched my father’s vision of a successful hotel company come to life. This provided a foundation of the detail, drive and passion that still drives me today to ensure all of our guests here at Creekside Inn receive the best experience we can provide.
My background in real estate, construction and the historical perspective of a hotelier family, provided a natural progression into forming Western Inns, a hotel company that believes in bringing back the lost art of the “Innkeeper” who provides an intimate and friendly place for travelers to stay. Western Inns began in 1992 with two properties: one in Klamath Falls, Oregon and the Olympic Lodge in Port Angeles, WA. Western Inns now owns and operates two properties:
My greatest passion for the business is in the details. Working closely with the architects, design and decorating teams on all projects, each of our properties is a work of art itself and features award winning photography from local artists; Thomas Mangelson in Wyoming Inn, Galen Rowell in Creekside Inn and Ross Hamilton in Olympic Lodge. Our front desks in Bishop, CA and Jackson Hole, Wyoming depict local wildlife and scenery from the surrounding areas; created by local wood carving artists. We feature bronze statues throughout our lobbies from Fredric Remington and each lobby has a wood burning fireplace to create a warm, inviting welcome for our guests as they arrive. Our fireplaces also serve as a gathering place for our guests to meet, converse, and relax after a day exploring the beautiful parks close to our properties.
