Stanley, Idaho -- The 82-year-old Sawtooth Hotel is coming back to life thanks to a family and whole lot of elbow grease.

For decades this was a favorite gathering place for locals and visitors alike. It's gaining that reputation again after Tim and Becky Cron and Becky's sister, Kelli Kerns took the vacant building and stripped it down to its original bones.

Becky saw the potential first, "For me it was love at first sight. For Tim it was, 'that looks like a lot of work."

But Tim and Kelli quickly jumped on board and now they can't wait to show you around.

They're especially proud of how they've been able to blend the old with the new including solar thermal technology to warm their water.
