Sandy Delaney retires from Channel Lodge
January 20, 2021
Sandy Delaney has built two homes in La Conner during more than four decades here.
One is her actual residence, the other a rock-solid career with the La Conner Country Inn and Channel Lodge.
Delaney officially retired Friday from the local hotels, truly her second home, after 42 years on the job.
Make that, jobs.
Delaney began in housekeeping in 1978 at the stylishly designed Country Inn, which opened on Second and Morris streets a year earlier. It replaced small and aging wood-frame cabins, one of which had been infamously spray-painted with the misspelled moniker “Town Getto.”
