Oakmont Property History

The 'Oakmont Property' is so titled as it was the classic Oakmont Motel! The Oakmont Motel  operated from the late 1950s until the mid 1990s. 

The Oakmont Motel was a classic motor lodge with dark, woodgrain rooms, wall heaters, no air conditioning, and drive your car right up to the front door of your unit. 

The Oakmont property also had a separate building that was home to the White Goose restaurant. 

The White Goose, while casual attire was fine, produced some really fine food and was located on a small pond on the property. In season there were always some white geese in the pond! Scroll down for a great 1961 image of the motel.
