Pete Mihalek was hired by John in 1998 as the laundry worker. As the years roll on and under the 5 different owners, Pete is now operations manager. Many of us have no idea as to the mountain of tasks that Pete performs. No one, including myself, has any idea just how complex the inside is after years of changes. Just one change Pete mentions is the telephone wires to each room. The most important is the plumbing and electrical system. The Smith family usually had someone like Pete, who works with his heart making sure the details are dealt with correctly to keep this very old building in running order. Pete loves the Coast Inn and I love talking to Pete.
