New Owners for Hotel Cathlamet

Your hosts Tanya and Laurel

Wahkiakum County Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Salmon Derby – April 1st-2nd, 2016 kicked off our – Laurel, Tanya and Tim Waller’s ownership of Hotel Cathlamet. We had a full house of fishermen and clammers – many staying beyond the season end a day early on April 8th. We were greeted with kindness and patience as we stumbled through our first week. We are now running at a gentler pace although the washer/dryer are still working full steam ahead.

Thank you guests and Cathlamet for the warm welcome! Thanks especially to S, K, W and K for the double-sided blessing of a full house, W for keeping an eye on us, Bob for allowing experimental charges and Maria’s for keeping us fed throughout.
