Old Edwards Hospitality Group Purchases Mountain High Lodge in Highlands
With Plans to Renovate, Add Heated Pool, and Open in 2014 as Midscale Hotel
(Highlands, NC) Old Edwards Hospitality Group has contracted for the purchase of Mountain High Lodge in Highlands, North Carolina. The 49-room property on Main Street will undergo extensive renovations beginning in November and will re-open in June 2014 under a new name.
Renovations will incorporate the existing “lodge” feel of the property with its wood and stone accents but with a fresher, more contemporary room design. The room options will include a King or Two Doubles with the ability to adjoin these room types for families or other groups traveling together. An outdoor heated pool will also be added.
Old Edwards Hospitality Group President and Managing Director Richard Delany says, “We are excited to add this basic hotel option at a more economical rate than we can offer at our full-service resort, Old Edwards Inn and Spa. The Mountain High Lodge purchase allows us to offer a mid-scale hotel experience while utilizing existing rooms in Highlands.”
The new property will be re-branded and marketed under a separate name from Old Edwards Inn and Spa, under the management of Old Edwards Hospitality Group. Delany says, “Our plan is to absorb the current staff of Mountain High Lodge into Old Edwards Inn and Spa, train them on our brand standards, and then make specific assignments when we open the new hotel in June.”
