Tincup Things to Do

  • by runs-on-fire Written Jun 18, 2009

    I stayed at Holts Guest Ranch in Taylor Park and loved the warm and freindly staff there. The cabins are old and rustic. The lady in the office was great. We prospected for gold and fished in the near-by Taylor Park Lake and caught giant lake trout, pike and rainbow's. We ate at Frenchy's Place in TinCup. We loved the TinCup pie that was prepared by local legend and historian, David Nelson.

    When you arrive at Tincup you will realize that there is only one place to eat and that is Frenchy's. French was an old prospector that decided he could make more money selling whisky than looking for gold. So he got two old barrels and put a plank across them and opened up his "saloon". Eventually he moved to a more indoor setting, but the miners never forgot that he sold them whisky in their tincups for 15 cents.
    Today you can eat at the cafe named after him. The owner who lives in Arizona during the winter will feed you with warm food and lots of stories. She is terrific with kids, sometimes letting them feed her trout in the pond. If in doubt, try the chili or the chili nachos, and she makes terrific fries. However, her best offering is her pies. They are all made by her that day, and we tried several different kinds, including her multiple fruit pie, and we give her two thumbs up.
    Food is reasonably priced, even though they have to haul things all the way to Tincup.

    Frenchy's, the only place in town Kids Only Can Fish the Pond Dining Outdoors is possible
