Stay in the Cook House

The Cook House was the first structure built on the property. Dad and his brother spent their first winter here of 1930 in a tent, and it was a cold, cold winter. Dad decided they would not live in a tent and built “the little house,” now the Cook House, in 1931. During the building of the Log House in 1931-32, a Chinese-American cook lived here. He was paid $25 per month to provide 3 hot meals per day, 7 days a week, for Dad, his brother and their crew of 6-8 people. The crew referred to it as “2 hots and a flop,” which meant they had “2 hot meals and a place to sleep”.
