Not far from the fabulous little power plant and overlooking the same river sits a rather large imposing hotel. My mate had spotted this from the air whilst scoping out the power plant on Google maps and thought it looked abandoned so did some more digging and found out it was 'closed indefinitely' which we took as a good sign. After a cold, snowy squeeze we were into the site and it became immediately apparent the probable reason it closed - one whole side of the building has subsided incredibly badly, so much so a section of exterior wall is missing on one end. Alarming enough from the outside, the inside is where it was a little interesting to say the least. The floor in the corridor running along that end veers off to a very noticeable slope on one side along the whole length, and the rest of the floors at that end are all over the place. Really not good, which is a shame because the views from this place are absolutely stunning and it must have been an awesome place to stay when it was open. We were in and out with no trouble apart from my mate putting his leg through a floor and the crawl out of the snow-covered access point a few feet from the edge of a ravine down into the river which was a little cheek-clenching to say the least. Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157651179283559/
Mountain View Hospital has a long history dating back to 1830's, it was originally a workhouse for the poor. Sometime during the 1930's the workhouse became an Institution, also an Infectious Diseases Hospital was on site. The former workhouse buildings were then upgraded for use as an infirmary.
