Now & Then: Bayside Rooms

Today I am introducing the first of many "now and then" photos. It's fun to look back at photos from the past, whether it be from the Moran Family era when Rosario was a private estate, or photos from the early Rosario Resort days. The rooms next the Moran Mansion along the waterfront were built in 1967 and called the Vista Villas. Today we call them the Bayside Rooms. Although the interior design has changed, the view of Orcas Island has not - always spectacular, no matter what the season!
