Pee Man Pee
The men's room urinal features a photoelectric beam that activates a rock waterfall when one pees into it. And I think as many women go check it out as men that use it....:O) Hummm I wonder why??? are they trying to catch a peek???nahhhh.....
The Madonna Inn has 109 guest rooms, and some like you have never seen before cause each has a different theme , and a very hot pink dining room. The gas station that used to be there has been converted into a wine shop. And some of the best wines I ever tasted....yum...Calif. wine.
The Madonna's opened the Inn in 1958 with just 12 rooms.The man and wife team's fortune came from the construction business which he owned and it included the removal of giant boulders - many of which were used in building the Inn. The room we stayed in was called THE CAVEMAN ROOM and was all made with boulder's....and we felt like we were in a cave...I loved the shower yummm... In 1965, the main complex was completed: a Swiss chalet-style building with dining room, coffee shop, lobby and gift shops.
The most elaborate theme rooms are in the Hilltop Unit which has 84 rooms The Gold Rush Dining Room, has a hand-carved marble balustrade, round hot pink booths, kitcheny paintings and gold light fixtures (actually made of scrap copper). The coffee shop serves sandwiches made with pink bread. And the sugar is pink crystals...very pink...but harmful so they said.
Rooms at the Madonna Inn are booked months in advance. The Caveman Room (where we stayed) features rocks and a waterfall shower. It is connected to the Daisy Mae Room by a four foot crawl space tunnel. The Old Mill Room has a functioning mill. The Buffalo Room features a taxidermied buffalo head mounted on the wall , to name a few.We didn't get to stay in these but took a few peeks... Each room features upholstery and a color scheme that fit each theme.
And really for the pleasures we had the prices weren't that bad...Although I must admit it was in 1972 we were there...and we happened upon it by accident, plus the fact we were very tried....Oh to be young again....:O)
