Steamboat Inn was in the middle of the Archie Creek Fire that started September 8th, 2020. The devastation from the mega fire to the area is astounding. While our buildings survived, our three water systems (Inn, Campwater Houses, and Hideaway Cottages) and the septic system for the Inn did not. All four systems melted and are a complete loss. The fire burned to within feet of our cottages and at least one has water damage. The valve house that supplies the spring water to the Inn, suites, and cabins was destroyed and all of the plumbing will have to be replaced.
Estimates for the three water systems and the septic system replacement is $40,000-$50,000 EACH. The valve house plumbing, electrical, and structural repair quote is $20,000. We do not have the quote for the cottage water damage repair yet. We also have substantial business losses from closing three months early (after opening three months late) and $15,000 of food was spoiled during the two week evacuation with out power. We are still without phone lines. We are unable to take any reservations for 2021 yet as we do not know when we will be able to reopen. continue reading on the go fund me page here.
