The most popular building! In the 1920's, until this large, two story building was completed, guests would gather in a large tent cabin that served as the recreation hall. Today, at night, most people come to the Recreation Hall to sit in front of the massive fireplace, play a card game, talk to the other cabin guests, or just read a book. Games, books, and a ping-pong table all are found on the first floor, with owner's rooms on the second.
