In the 1930's and 1940's, the Cole's Resort on Thornapple Lake (between Hastings and Nashville) sported a two-story hotel, a dance hall, a train station, carriage house, barn, ice house, bath house, and two four-hole outhouses. Even after the hotel burned down, the resort continued to function in one form or another until 1996, when it was formally closed and sold off. By 1998 there were only a couple of cabins and a boat rental left. I wonder what is there today and what could be found if permission were granted to search?
