The Lodge

The first sketch of the Feather River Inn lodge by architect Frederic C. Whitton was modest in design. Featuring a long log structure, rectangular forms and spaces marked off for a large lobby, a larger dining room and kitchen, and rows of bedrooms on the second floor. The original plans were rather conservative and arguably crude.

The original plan of the lodge hardly depicts what is seen in old postcards and photographs. The lodge eventually transformed into a rustic mountain retreat with great hearths; a grand lobby and an even grander dining room. It was a spectacular lodge that left a lasting impression for every adventurous traveler.
