Finlandia Motel Mount Shasta 2009
8th Finglish trip June 2009 #34
At the foot of Mount Shasta near the Oregon border in California is the sign of the Finlandia Motel, a place where one would least expect it. Eila Halonen, a former waitress at the Hotel Torni in Helsinki, realized her dream and founded a motel in the 1960s. 81-year-old Eila’s daughter Kathy owns the hotel, which is managed by the Pöyhönens, a Finnish couple.
