The owners of the Fontanel entertainment complex in Whites Creek have unveiled plans to build a 136-room luxury resort-style hotel — along with a banquet facility, pool and retail spaces — to go with their Inn at Fontanel boutique property. Getahn Ward has the story here.
Fontanel Properties pitched those plans to Whites Creek residents Thursday in lieu of pursuing The Lodge at Fontanel, a Holiday Inn resort with 150 rooms and a conference facility/events center. In putting that resort concept on indefinite hold, they cited rising construction costs and challenges with the targeted site in the woods near Fontanel Mansion on the existing 186-acre campus.
The 4,500-capacity Woods at Fontanel amphitheater has snagged two sponsors in the runup to its 2015 summer concert series that will feature John Fogerty and The Doobie Brothers, among others. Carl Black Chevy has signed up to put its name on the venue while Holiday Inn has committed to sponsor the concert series. The hotel company will soon break ground on a 150-room resort that is expected to open in 2017.
