On a road trip between Chicago, Illinois and Chattanooga, Tennessee, my friends and I took a detour into Cave City, Kentucky. Cave City is a crazy anomaly of a town, full of American wonders. They had everything from Big Mike’s Mystery House (a fun house full of optimal illusions) to a dinosaur park to cave exploration to a wax museum. Unfortunately, Cave City had way too many attractions to pack into a short stopover, and we didn’t have too much time to scope everything out, but we definitely took a peek around town and caught some of the highlights, including Wigwam Village Inn #2.

The Cave City wigwam motel is a motel where all of the rooms are shaped like teepees. Seriously, these babies have real beds and cable TV and everything. And are shaped like teepees. The teepee motel structures look like they should be tents, but no, they are hotel rooms.

Wigwam motels were a motel chain constructed in the 1930s and 1940s. Today, Wigwam Village Inn #2, in Cave City, Kentucky, is one of three remaining wigwam villages in the United States (there were originally seven with ones in Alabama, Florida, Arizona, Louisiana, and California plus two in Kentucky) and has been around since 1937.

We stopped by the Wigwam Village Kentucky location to take photos but, unfortunately, didn’t get a chance to stay there for the night…but hopefully someday I will get to experience what it’s like to stay in a deluxe wigwam!
