Bottle Hollow Resort
Fort Duchesne, UT


The Bottle Hollow Resort was owned and operated by Ute Indians. The resort featured motel rooms, a restaurant, and a convention center. It was designed by the Salt Lake City firm of Baird-Young and Jones. The resort was built from 1968-1971 and was abandoned around 1985. In 2009, demolition began. By 2012, the only thing left was the building shown above which is a stylized teepee which was used as the reception office. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
