Once in the middle of Laramie, Wyoming
Stood a broken-down, shabby abode.
It was two stories high and had ugly blue paint,
In desperate need of repair.
It needed the patience of someone who cared;
Someone with a passion for wood.
A carpenter came with a truck full of tools
Who thought he could fix it up right.
He cut and he nailed, he hammered and sawed
Until he transformed the old house.
So after the passing of ten dusty years,
The carpenter came to believe
That others might like to enjoy all his work,
So he's opened his dwelling to you.. . .

The Wolf Hotel threw open its doors on New Year's Eve in 1893 with a gala masquerade ball and sumptuous dinner. One hundred years later, a like celebration was held to honor the "Grand Old Gal" of the Valley.
Built by German immigrant Frederick G. Wolf for $6000, the two-and-a-half story Victorian-style structure has since been the anchor for downtown Saratoga. Noted for its "fine food and convivial atmosphere," the Hotel soon became a hub of the community.
