Skyler Inn

A long, winding mountain trail leads to this mid-19th century home. A former stage coach stop, The Roosevelts stayed there on several occasions. The home was originally built by a former sea captain, and its many intact architectural features include look out towers, stone fireplaces, carved mantels and railings, paneling from the old captain's boat, secret rooms and so much more. No amount of history nor quirky architecture will protect it from the bulldozers which are coming very soon.
