In our Winter 2013 issue of American Road Magazine we wandered a bit north of our theme area of Washington State into the Canadian Rockies for the subject of our Memory Motel Column. Tucked in the foothills of the craggy grandeur of British Columbia near the town of Ainsworth Springs stands the Mermaid Lodge and Motel. Not quite the image that would seem to go with a town that grew up in the rough and tumble of the Canadian Gold Rush.

 

In Part Two of our three-part interview with Marsh Gillies, the current innkeeper along with her husband, she describes the colorful history of the Lodge itself and how her family overcame a terrible tragedy to maintain the historic inn.
