Twilite Motel, Bloomer, WI

Twilite Motel, Bloomer, Wisconsin, 2009
Found: Rest Best Motel, U.S. Highway "12", Millston, Wisconsin, circa 1960. Caption: Modern accommodations for single or family. Private baths and T.V. Beautifully landscaped with picnic tables. Adjoining the Motel is "Grandma's Grill", providing home cooked meals for the hungry tourist as well as service station and travelers' supplies.

Fading along the roadside, the motel has ceded to the franchise with Sara Lee breakfast buffet except for those few run by hipsters (e.g. Kate's Lazy Meadow in the Catskills or the Holiday Music Motel in Door County or the sons and daughters of the original owners as is the case with the Twilite Motel in Bloomer, Intact except for the go-kart track out back, the Twilite at last glance featured original room configurations, furnishings, tiled showers, and paper bathmats.
