The Coronado Boathouse
The Boathouse, built in 1887, actually predates The Hotel Del Coronado by a year.
Thought to have been an exercise in building practice for what started out as a largely unskilled crew, the Boathouse was completed in 1887, before construction on the hotel commenced.
Designed by the Reid Brothers Architects - the same men who designed the hotel - the Boathouse became a diminutive Del and a visual masterpiece in its own right.
I have seen it described as the Del’s Doghouse. It is now an overpriced Restaurant which gets mediocre reviews.
