followed by,

"Was it haunted?! What was it like?!"

The Tokeland Hotel is the Oldest Hotel in Washington State

Located in Tokeland WA.

Here's a bit of the history...

"In 1858 George and Charlotte Brown settled among the Shoalwater Tribe led by Chief Toke. The Browns homesteaded 1400 acres, raised crops, kept livestock and traded with the Native Americans. Later, the Browns’ daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, William Kindred, built the current structure as a home and haven for travelers. With their daughters, Maud and Elizabeth, they purchased additional land, developed a golf course, dairy, oyster farm and post office. Today, the Tokeland Hotel is rekindling the Kindreds’ tradition of warm hospitality, diverse art and entertainment, fine dining, and restful lodging. We invite you to share this heritage and tradition." - Source

I'm in awe of the rooms! One guest was quoted to say, "I can die anytime now, I've been in heaven here!
