This is AMAZING NEWS!!!
THE VIEWPOINT INN HAS SOLD!!!
I am so happy the Inn has sold!!! The new owners are a local Corbett, Oregon couple, Heiner and Sheron Fruehauf. They plan to REBUILD and bring the beauty back to this wonderful and historic site on the Columbia River Gorge!!!
The Viewpoint Inn is the home of the Twilight Prom that was tragically destroyed in a fire in July 2011.

In the last five years since the fire occurred the Inn has sat empty. There have been several failed attempts to save it. We've witnessed some roof reconstruction started but it was never finished. Sadly the state of the Inn has declined and it has been the victim of vandalism. I still continued to visit the Inn on my trips to the Pacific Northwest. However with each passing year it's gotten sadder to see.
There is a long road ahead to rebuilding this iconic and historic site but I want to say THANK YOU, Congratulations and Best of luck to the new owners!!! I look forward to watching the progress of this restoration and visiting again one day!

This is great news! I did a Twilight Trip a few weeks ago in September. The Inn was in bad shape. So much vandalism and graffiti. Thanks for posting the information. I will be checking your blog for updates. I plan on taking another Twilight Trip in a couple of years. Love your Twilight shooting location vlog b.t.w. I used it for a couple of spots that were not on my itinerary.ReplyDelete
