Owners John and Charlene Powell decided that motorcycle riders needed a resort destination of their own. Wanting to bridge the free spirit of the old west with the free spirit of the modern motorcyclists, we designed the Iron Horse with a western flair. We planned to offer a wide range of accommodations and facilities.
