When we arrived in Dana the house had no heat, no water, and seemed to have no electricity (we found out the next day that the electricity was actually working, the breaker just needed to be flipped). It was incredibly dirty from being left empty for years. We spent that first night in the nearest town, Bruno, at the local hotel. We were the only guests and paid a whopping $20 for a room. A warm room with access to a working toilet has never meant so much. We ended up staying there the following night as well.
