The Madrona Inn on Orcas Island
The Madrona Inn on Orcas Island. The sign on the building simply says MADRONA INN but with a little on-line research it appears to be the central lodge at a place that had 24 cabins. The back of the postcard reads: "July `7th Dear Ellen, Arrived here 2:00 yesterday. We're tired as boar was alone. Had chicken dinner & everything & have swell cottage "Gray Gables" 3 rooms & 3 beds so ma & I sleep alone. Slept pretty well and had a fine breakfast, will hike some now & have lunch. It is ideal here & we all feel lazy. Love you all. Olive". It was sent to Mrs. James Van Allen at 6556 20th Ave NW Seattle WA. I can't make out the year.
