Lincoln Motor Court, Fall of 2008

Main Entrance, Lincoln Motor Court
My wife and I spent 2 nights at this lovely 1930's style motor court. Lincoln Motor Court is located on US 30 (Lincoln Highway) between Schellsburg and Bedford on the south side of the highway. Each year I take her on a little jaunt to celebrate our anniversary. In 2008, we were celebrating our 36th. She's very special to me and is actually my "mail order bride". She was one of approx. 600 people who wrote to me from the Washington, PA area while I was stationed in Vietnam from 1970 to 1971. I wrote 4 or 5 girls steady; then chased her until she caught me when I returned from overseas.
The Altizer family who own and operate the court are extremely friendly; the cottages are very comfortable; and there a number of places to eat to include the Jean Bonnet Tavern & Inn to the east 2 miles.
I'd heartily recommend staying there; it brings back many memories of when I was a child in the 1950's and traveled with my grandparents and parents, staying in cabins/cottages such as here!
