A look back at tourist cabins with flush toilets

We here at Vintage Roadside thought it would be fun to share some of the pieces of roadside history we have in our collection here on our blog.

We thought we'd start with a wonderful example from the Mom and Pop era of tourist courts. We proudly present George & Ethel's Restaurant and Cabins located along Route 9 opposite Lake Wickaboag.

This business card comes from the late 1930s and is a great example of an establishment offering the most for every guest. Not only did they have coil spring mattresses but each cabin had its own flush toilet! A wonderful selling point for this time period.

We hope George & Ethel were wildly successful and that many a guest to Lake Wickaboag enjoyed their stay!
