Your Pinedale lodging is a National Registered Historic Place; the "cabin camp" was built in 1929, and has become one of the oldest historical sites, as well as the longest continuously operated lodging property in Pinedale.

The lodging was originally built and owned by Walter Scott, who also owned the Pinedale Cash Store and the Scott Stage Company. He built the lodging with the help of craftsmen and people who needed to pay off their debts at his store. Mr. Scott built 8 cabins in a U shape, with a bathhouse in the center. Each cabin was built for a unique purpose, some for lodging others for laundry, a workshop or bathhouse.

This historic Lodging in Pinedale, WY has served many purposes. In earlier times due to the harsh winters, it was nearly impossible for the local doctor to travel to ranches, so local women would stay in Pinedale at the lodging until their babies were born. Most guests who made this their lodging did their own cleaning. Some who could not pay their bill would do minor repairs and painting in return for lodging. In the 1930's, the cabins were remodeled and indoor plumbing was added.

Since then, the motel has had numerous owners, and actually changed hands in a poker game. A train robber (who is now in the Cowboy Hall of Fame) also spent the night here. Today, The Log Cabin Motel is on the National Historic Registry, and all cabins are kept in the Spirit of the Old West.
