In our last two posts, we have basically shown you several, of what we consider to be, attractions here in Manley Hot Springs. The Tanana River, Hot Springs Hall, Historic School and New School, Post Office, Trading Post, Village Market and lastly our Church. We do not consider our Water Well to be an attraction but, to those who live here in Manley, it certainly is probably the most vital and important part of our community.
In this (Part 10), and our next post (Part 11), we will show you what we consider to be our two main attractions, The Manley Roadhouse and The Manley Hot Springs and Bath House. We rank them as our top two attractions solely upon the fact that, in general, these two are what most tourists, visitors, fire crews and others come to see or do. In the case of The Manley Roadhouse, visitors (especially fire fighting crews during the forest fire season as well as hunters in the Autumn) stay at / eat at / and enjoy spending time visiting the bar.
THE MANLEY ROADHOUSE
To make this photographic visit to the roadhouse complete, I dipped back into my photographic archives. During our visit here in September 2020, due to Covid 19 protocols, the roadhouse was closed to all activity.
As you approach the 'main' part of Manley Hot Springs, you cross the bridge over the slough.
As you reach the far end of the bridge, there off to your left, is the Manley Roadhouse.
Now for a view of the back side of the Roadhouse.
Let's go inside the Roadhouse for a little visit. The Roadhouse is very relaxed, comfortable and pleasant to visit.
The steps lead upstairs to the rooms.
Let's go back to crossing the bridge. IF you look straight ahead across the bridge, in the far distance you can see a white cabin.
