The vacation compound includes 11 buildings and structures, including two main lodges, six smaller cabins, a playhouse, a pool house and generator house, along with a fireplace, fire pit, fountain, bridge and swimming pool. At one time, it also was home to a small theater with an adjoining ticket booth. Originally there were several other buildings including a horse barn and stable. It was placed on the national Register of Historic Places on December 28, 2006.

History[edit]

The site was originally developed in the early 1900s by Hezekiah Eastman Hatch, a prominent Logan, Utah businessman who built the first cabin here. Hatch's descendants expanded the retreat during the 1920s and '30s. Two of them — L.Boyd Hatch and Floyd B. Odlum, who was one of the ten wealthiest people in the US. at the time — became self-made millionaires who during the 1930s and '40s managed or controlled numerous businesses including RKO Studios, Greyhound Buslines, Paramount Pictures studios, the Hilton Hotel chain, Madison Square Garden, and various mines, utility companies, and banks. The company, Atlas Corporation, that Odlum/Hatch owned and based in New York City also owned properties such as: the Plaza Hotel, The Sherry Netherland Hotel, and the Bonwitt Teller department store.

The Odlums expanded the site and eventually the summer camp became a summer retreat, not only for the Hatches and Odlums, but for numerous friends and family. The Retreat and its owners hosted many famous people from Hollywood movie stars to government leaders and business heads. Guests included those with local ties as well as business associates, socialites, and other elites the Hatches and the Odlums knew through their ties to New York City and Hollywood.
