What will Route 66 Cottage be like?
Upon arrival, you will see a small picket fence across the front lawn with "Burma Shave" style signs giving welcome. Then you will cruise along the painted sidewalk Route 66 Cottage Highway that leads up onto the porch and into the cottage and winds from stop to stop within.
Your first stop on the Route 66 Cottage Highway will be the drive-in theater living area featuring vintage vehicle seating complete with drive-in speakers and your personal big screen for viewing movies. There will also be a Shoe Tree where you can add a paper "Shoe" with your comments.
The next stop would be your motel room featuring a luxury queen size bed appointed with Route 66 memorabilia including a faux window and mural looking out on a scene featuring popular landmarks seen while cruising on Route 66.
From there, you would travel the Route 66 Cottage Highway to the "Gas Station Restroom". The restroom key on a large wooden block labeled "Restroom" will be hanging just outside the door for you (but we won't really make it necessary to use it - it will be just for show – after all, when you gotta' go, you gotta' go) And the last stop, of course, would be Sondra's Diner, so named after Patrick's beloved mother who dearly loved Route 66 during her lifetime. It will have "neon lights" (rope Christmas lights) surrounding the exterior and a corner booth for breakfast dining inside. Just through the back of Sondra's Diner will be a convenience kitchen with a microwave, coffee pot, and refrigerator and laundry room.
When you "Get Your Kicks on Route 66", we hope you'll "check in" to our Route 66 Cottage.
When will Route 66 Cottage open? It has been a long three years since we purchased the cottage and many things have intervened with our dream. However, current plans are to open Route 66 Cottage in 2008 but yet more delays may happen due to Patrick's USMC mobilization and deployment to Iraq. When the day does come that we open our doors for the public, there will be a private pre-opening Open House for the neighbors of the neighborhood and a public Grand Opening shortly thereafter welcoming you to be the first to join us for refreshments and a tour of the Route 66 Cottage.
