The décor takes its cues from natural elements nearby, incorporating a dark, red oak check-in desk with granite overlay, large stone fireplace, wood furnishings and soft, organic layers for comfort encouraging a style throughout the property that reflects back to the authentic roots of the original 1916 lodge and its rich history. As a fresh departure from the traditional main lodge design, North’s interiors have clean architectural lines and floor to ceiling windows that establish its decidedly contemporary elements, which are unique to the area.
“The greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if it was for the first time, which was the inspiration behind Grand View Lodge’s new 60-room boutique hotel, North,” said General Manager Mark Ronnei. “Guests of all kinds have been staying at the resort and making memories for generations, so we wanted to take a new spin on the resort’s rustic charm and offer a unique setting and atmosphere for meetings, event spaces, and lodging accommodations.”
Further positioning Grand View Lodge as an ideal location for hosting meetings and events, North includes four new flexible meeting spaces including a 1,936-square-feet conference room. Each room includes windows overlooking nature views and doors in the meeting spaces on the first floor that allow for natural light and a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor spaces. Venues include Discover, North’s largest meeting room at 1,936-square-feet and can accommodate up to 150 people; Create, a 600-square-foot boardroom on the second floor that can accommodate 12 people; Imagine, a 500-square-foot flexible space perfect for breakout sessions or smaller banquet events that can accommodate up to 50 people; and Inspire, a is 400-square-foot breakout room.
