It has been hard work keeping the hotel open, but being your own boss has made it worthwhile. You find yourself doing things you probably wouldn’t do for someone else. You scrub floors, clean bathrooms and all the dirty work. Of course, without the help of family–my wife, Susan, and our six children born in Park City and raised at the Chateau, it wouldn’t have been much fun operating the lodge. Even today after all the children have left home, they help us out in cleaning, painting, and fixing things when we need them . . including sons and daughter-in-laws–who have the modern technology skills we lack. Working for yourself is great, but there are also drawbacks . . working Christmas, no days off during winter. You can’t lock the door and go home at six o’clock.
