Gilroy Hot Springs Hotel Kit

Gilroy, California

This beautiful Victorian Italianate 3-story hotel was originally built in the 1870’s. The hotel was the dominant structure at the hot springs resort, which also had several cabins, bath houses, a club house, and hot spring gazebo, among other structures. The hotel burned down in 1980, but this model will bring it back to life, albeit, in miniature HO scale form.


The model will come in 2 versions, one with complete interior details, including walls, doors, wash basins, water closets, fireplaces, and stairways. A set of highly detailed HO scale furniture, designed from actual photos of the women’s parlor, and dining room will be available. Detail parts have been designed for a player piano and bench, dining tables, card table, rocking chair, Rococo Victorian bedstead and gentleman’s valet, among many other detail pieces, all based upon actual photos from the hotel! The kitchen extension on the south elevation of the hotel is included, sewer pipes that hung underneath the porch have been modeled, and on and on!! It’s ALL here, everything that could possibly be seen in historic photos have been used to create this ultimate HO scale model!


Another version of the hotel will also be available, a hollow version, without the interior details for those modelers looking for something less expensive. All the exterior details of the model will still be there for the hollow version, just without the interior.


Both versions can made with either the widow’s walk, or cupola, as parts are included for both the complete hotel model, and hollow model.

The 3D design phase was completed late October, 2014, and a test model has been printed (SEE ABOVE).  Next step is to paint and build the kit for photos! Continue (don’t get bored!), to watch for more updates. This model is AWESOME! Tons of detail parts! There are HO scale scale chairs, rockers, tables, piano and stool, and more!


A test build and painting of the kitchen extension has been completed, and it looks great. The 2 bathroom extensions on the kitchen’s exterior wall have been outfitted with their HO scale water closets (included with kit). A couple of very minor design changes were discovered while building the kitchen, and are now incorporated into the hotel kit. This kit is crazy with details!!

  This house was built by William Watt, a Scottish stone mason, for John Hanna Wildermuth and family in 1861 from tuffaceous sandstone quarried nearby. The building has a basement, upstairs sleeping area (not modeled), front and back porches, and a cistern out front.  The model is very detailed using historic photos, and each stone block is faithfully reproduced in 3D.
