As of January 1 we have started construction on 14 new units. This project is part of the remodel of the existing buildings. There will be 12 hotel rooms and 2 additional suites to serve our customers in a greater capacity. Expected completion date is May 1, 2016.
Stay tuned for more information about our increasing capacity and beautification project.
Creekside Retreat Construction Update: February 9, 2016
The snow is blowing but it hasn't stopped the construction at Creekside Retreat. We are so excited to be on track to open another building in mid-April 2016. We currently have 16 rooms finished and ready for our guests for Valentine's Day and the National Maple Syrup Festival. The construction on 14 additional rooms is underway with the drywall installed and the painters following right behind them. Next will be the bathroom tile and fixtures along with the flooring. Our signature Amish finished doors and trim will be installed by the end of March. We are so pleased with the comments about our decor and the fantastic mattresses in our rooms that we are making sure we use the same in the new rooms. Furniture will arrive in mid-April and we will be ready to take reservations for the Indiana Wine Fair, I U Graduation, summer vacations and Fall in Brown County.
We are also looking forward to having work start soon on the building with 8 suites. These units can be rented on a nightly basis or as short term extended stay rentals. They are popular with the businesses in the Bloomington and Columbus area for people here on business for a month at a time. They are also great for new residents waiting on the closing of homes being purchased but not yet ready for move-in.
Spring will be here before we know it and we are starting to think about planting flowers, seeing leaves on the trees and freshening the grounds. We can't wait to see the grill, picnic tables, swing and fire pits back in use. We've added charcoal, marshmallows, and roasting sticks to our front desk inventory for guests to purchase.
Summer and Fall are also bringing thoughts of weddings and our event patio and conference center are popular places for ceremonies and receptions. The arched bridge connecting the parking lot to the patio is going to be a great photo opportunity for the wedding party. As the sun sets, we can light the three fire pits to create the ambiance needed for the perfect wedding. Under the stars or under a tent, this will be a day to remember.
More updates later on our construction but don't wait to late to make your reservations at Creekside Retreat.
