The Hideaway Motel and Lodge!

by Jeff Luke Titcomb on April 28th, 2012


When we look back at the history of The Hideaway Motel and Lodge, nestled in the Quaint, Western town of Greenville, California, we see a unique business built before its time. The Hideaway Motel and Lodge was built in 1947 just as the United States was coming out of World Warll and Detroit was just getting back to making civilian transportation after the war. The Federal Highway Administration didn’t start building Interstate Highways prior to 1956. The Hideaway Motel and Lodge is a 13 room roadside Motel and Lodge built before such accommodations were popular, or necessary!
Most people traveling in the late 1940’s stayed in big city Hotels and Boarding Houses. The typical roadside Motel didn’t really evolve until the late 1950’s and beyond.
The Hideaway Motel and Lodge has been well cared for over the last 65 years and Bink Huddleston, current owner, is no exception. He has owned the Hideaway now for almost ten years and makes continual improvements to the motel and the property.
This year not only marks the 65th Anniversary of The Hideaway but the Sesquicentennial of Greenville, California, and the 50th Anniversary of Greenville’s Annual Gold Digger Days Celebration. Because of this remarkable year in Greenville’s history the town is having a special concert Friday, July 20, 2012 to Celebrate, with a concert by Legendary Country singer Lacy J. Dalton! This will be held on Greenville’s Historic Main Street, as well as Celebrations all day Saturday in Greenville!
The Hideaway Motel and Lodge is just 10 miles from the southern end of Lake Almanor and less than 50 miles from the entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park!
The Hideaway Motel and Lodge is one of the longest surviving lodging establishments in Plumas County. Being run continuously for the 65 years shows how much Tourists have come to Love this historic establishment over the many decades.
