Who Is William Roam and What Is He Doing At The Gage?

At the Gage Hotel we strive to ensure that our guests are treated to the best of the best and we think we’ve found that in the William Roam line of products.

William Roam’s signature Roam Collection is now available in our guest rooms. These finely crafted luxury grooming products are formulated with a unique blend of antioxidant phytonutrients, amino acids, vitamins and minerals for incredibly soft and healthy skin and hair. Best of all, the products are 100% conceived and created in the U.S and packaged with recycled materials. Having tried the products ourselves, we are sold, and know that you will be too.

Culture and history run deep in our little town of Marathon, as does our love for a good ole’ mom and pop shop.

With a range of shops as unique and authentic as the Gage Hotel itself, the towns’ shops are a true reflection of the spirit of the West.

These family-owned and operated local businesses are not only chock full of lovely regional fashion, antiques, dry goods and artwork, it is also a great way to get to know some of the nicest, most interesting people around.
