When you are looking for an elegant place to stay overnight in the Cody, WY area, and one with a historic Western atmosphere, you certainly do not want to overlook the Chamberlin Inn. This beautifully restored property is actually several historic places that were combined into a larger magnificent Inn that many are sure to enjoy.
The property was owned by Agnes Chamberlin, in 1900, who had started to work for Buffalo Bill in that year. She worked in his newspaper office and then later opened her own boarding house. Over time, she slowly added other buildings in order to expand the boarding house. This included the original Court House and the court residence, a magnificent garden, and it was all later enclosed in a beautiful brick and iron fence.
In the early days, a number of historic people had stayed there. This includes people like Ernest Hemingway, Marshall Fields, Stanley, Haliburton, and more. Others included movie stars, politicians, tycoons, actors, and opera singers.
The hotel has 22 rooms that are located on two different floors. There are different types of rooms in terms of size, style, and location. All of them are beautifully done. The hotel was completely renovated in 2005.
Each room has a flat-screen TV and also wireless hi-speed Internet access. Many of the rooms also have the original claw tubs (showers, too) and corner sinks. Each room also comes with Belgium chocolates, fresh flowers, and Italian lotions.
Other features that you may get are fireplaces, a kitchenette, a view of the Garden, and an office. Some of the rooms are separate, such as a garden or a Loft apartment, and you can also stay in Hemingway's room, which reflects his style of life. A parlor and a library are also available for guests. The historic courthouse residence is also available.
The Chamberlin is also the ideal place to hold your wedding or business meeting. The hotel has a conference or meeting room, a catering kitchen, and a beautiful Garden to host your wedding. A honeymoon cottage also makes it the perfect place to make your wedding truly unforgettable.
The hotel is located in downtown Cody. This places it very close to shops, a museum, and shopping galleries. Of course, you could just relax and get away from it all with just a cup of tea or coffee in the garden.
