OCThen reader Mike Herrick was reading my previous article on Saddleback Inn, and submits the following photograph of Saddleback Inn's station wagon, dated in 1981...
I was reading about the Saddleback Inn and remembered I had this photo of the Saddleback Inn company station wagon I used to drive to pick up guest from the Orange County Airport.
I also have a napkin in a old photo album from the bar.
We met alot of nice people and a few movie stars and music artist.
I can remeber that the movie Coal Miners Daughter was released in 1980 and Loretta Lynne was very popular at the time. She stayed at the Saddleback with all her family for about 5 days and I would deliver meals to their rooms.
Lots of stories to tell. This was a very popular place in it's time.
I was a bell boy, my brother was a cook in the kitchen and his wife was a maid. We have great memories working at the Inn.
