A Teepee Motel

Imagine going on vacation and checking into a nice little hotel in Wharton, Texas. Imagine this motel is designed to look like a Native American teepee. Don't laugh. There actually is such a thing. Wharton is about 60 miles southwest of Houston. After being in disuse and disrepair for years, it is now open for business. Each room is a teepee. It has all the modern amenities like a/c, bathroom, shower, cable tv in color. It even has a refrigerator and microwave in each room. The new owner spent a couple of million dollars fixing it. Though it is a little off the beaten path, it is something to see.Interesting? At least it would be a good picture. Why anyone would want to stay in Wharton, I don't know but it is only about an hour's drive from Houston. I'm glad that the Teepee Motel is back in business.

It sound like an interesting place to stay. I am sure there must be other things to attract people there.
