Retro Roadtrip: Little American Hotel Resort in Cheyenne Wyoming

What we love about Mid-Century travel is feeling you’ve been thrown back in timelittleamerica6 to a period where motor travel was cool, lounging by the pool was the most fun you could have as a kid and Motels took guests seriously and didn’t just provide you with an impersonal place to sleep.

Little America in Cheyenne is just such a unique place. Luxurious, but a throw back to another time, with a decorating scheme in the French Provincial style, it’s timeless, but with that old classy motel air that makes it a pleasure to stay.

The grounds provide lovely views of the Wyoming prairie and are beautifully landscaped with flower gardens and the pool is fabulous with comfortable lunch chairs that made me crave that afternoon martini!

Our favorite amenities include:

  • Full-service restaurant
  • Lounge and gourmet coffee shop
  • 9-hole executive golf course
  • Over-sized, heated, outdoor pool
  • Fitness centerlittleamerica2
  • Room service
  • Gift shop
  • Kids’ playground
  • Wireless Internet – with a good connection!
  • Mini refrigerator in the room
  • Free HBO
  • Data port and High speed Internet access

If you read the article in the link, they did research and then tried to make the remodel look progressive. In preservation, we’ve certainly run into a lot of this on the road with mid-century motels where they have to keep it looking

Mies van der Rohe’s gas station in Montreal preservation success!

It’s wonderful when we can report a Mid-Century preservation success: “Long, low and in his trademark black steel, the shuttered-since-2008 Esso station by Bauhaus master Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, at boulevard de l’Île des Soeurs and rue Berlioz in Montreal’s Nuns’ Island community, currently lies stripped of a little of its beauty – huge sheets of glass and their associated mullions have been numbered and disassembled for restoration – but by autumn, the building

Review: Pillow Stalk, Mad for Mod Cozy Mystery

We haven’t done book reviews on Mid-Century style yet, but perhaps that’s because we didn’t know “Pillow Stalk” was out there.   Written by Diane Vallere, this book is custom made for Mid-Century fanatics who enjoy a good cozy mystery! Born on the same date, Interior Decorator Madison Night has modeled her life after Doris Day, but when a killer targets women dressed like the bubbly actress, Madison’s signature sixties style places her in the middle

Phoenicia Lodge is retro fun in the Catskills

Phoenicia Lodge has been on our  Mid-Century Motel directory for a long time – so when we planned a trip through upstate New York, we knew we had to stop and meet up with Brian and Sara who have lovingly restored and cultivated a fabulous Lodge in the gorgeous Catskills! The town of Phoenicia is small and quaint and a lot of fun. We had dinner at Tavern 214, an excellent restaurant there,  and enjoyed
