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 stylized teepee building which was used as the reception office. In 2013, the Northern Ute Veterans Monument was built behind it. By 2015, the building had been restored. I believe it houses Ute Indian Tribe administrative offices. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
