Historic Bush House Inn Undergoes Thorough Renovation

The historic Bush House Inn, was saved from collapse by new owners in January 2012, and has since undergone a complete renovation. Now open for lodging and events, this iconic local treasure is returning to its previous glory as a gathering spot for the community and a popular destination for travelers wanting to escape with a step back in time.

The three story building closed in 2001 and was plagued by age, weather, and vandalism. The sale of the property to local investors in 2011 came as a welcome surprise to local residents who feared they had lost another local iconic structure. The new owners had recently completed renovations on another community icon; the Index Tavern (formerly Holcomb & Holcomb Meat Market & Sporting Goods), now known as The River House and home to the Outdoor Adventure Center for rafting and family recreation, a small Cafe, and host for many community and private events.

“The Bush House is a Pacific Northwest treasure and maintaining its status as a Washington historic place in an important component of the project.” said Blair Corson. “Since 1898 this building has played a significant role in Index’s economy, and we believe it can do that again.”
