If you look from the sky, as Google Earth does, at Jerry Jaeger’s 10,000-square-foot mansion, you might think it’s shaped like a gray handgun. The house belonging to Duane Hagadone’s partner in hospitality is near the Jewett House on Sanders Beach. Asks the Berry Picker who provided the Google Earth photo: “How is it that Jerry Jaeger flies so effectively under the radar while his partner doesn’t? I bet most people in the area couldn’t even tell you who Jerry is. I suppose the lack of a 180-foot-long yacht might have something to do with it.” Jaeger’s father, of course, provided the “J” to Bob Templin’s “T” in the old TJ’s Pantry in Post Falls. Younger Jaeger became Templin’s partner when his father was killed in a plane crash and later sided with Hagadone in the hostile 1983 takeover of Templin’s Western Frontier hospitality company/DFO, Huckleberries, SR.

My earliest recollection of the old North Shore Hotel occurred while I was managing editor of the Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell, Mont. All of the Hagadone Newspaper execs from the Inland Northwest got together for a confab in Coeur d’Alene, which included a scrumptuous dinner at the old Cloud 9 at the top of Bob Templin’s North Shore, the forerunner of what is now Beverly’s. It was elegant as can be when seen through the eyes of a newspaper man from northwest Montana. OrangeTV posted this shot among a handful of Templin’s old North Shore on his Get Out! North Idaho Facebook page.
Question: Do you have a fond memory of Bob Templin’s old North Shore Hotel and/or Cloud 9 to share?
