Kohler Waters Spa has announced expansion plans for 2018 at the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond Destination Kohler. The renovation will feature nine new treatment rooms, expansive common space with seating around the spa’s relaxation pool and a luxurious bridal suite. The spa will continue to be open during its renovation process taking place from February to June 2018.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our internationally acclaimed spa to cater to both our loyal guests and a new group of travelers,” said Garrett Mersberger, Director of Wellness, Kohler Co. “In order to better accommodate our growing guest interest, we were motivated to add treatment rooms and space in the common areas. We’ve also noticed a trend in larger bridal parties and girlfriend getaway trips, and wanted to provide a special space where these parties can relax and enjoy their time together.”

The renovation will undergo two phases, first one from February to March and the second taking place April to May. The first phase of the renovation will be moving the spa offices to the Appley Theatre at The American Club, allowing for guests to enjoy two treatment rooms with a friend or loved one. In addition, nine new treatment rooms will be designed for massage and salon offerings, as well as a new café with indoor and outdoor seating.

The second phase will consist of removing the relaxation pool, the formal bride suite will be constructed with a beautifully lit room and ample space for larger parties. Also, the innovative and new spa menu will launch on June 1st, which will be available at Burr Ridge, I11., and Kohler Co.’s newest property, LODGE KOHLER in Green Bay, Wis.

The American Club, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2018, will also be renovating, starting on January 2. The renovation will include a revamped underground and aboveground parking. The main building, restaurants, and shops will be closed from January 2-31, opening only on Fridays and Saturdays throughout February and March. All operations will be expected to open on April 1. Overnight rooms will be available throughout the week in the main building, and the guest entrance will remain open on the west side until late June 2018.

The expansive Grand View Lodge is getting even bigger. Two-ish hours from Minneapolis, the resort is appealing to planners with its new hotel and conference center it’s planning as part of its $30 million expansion. The 60-room boutique hotel—simply called North—is situated to become the perfect venue for groups looking to escape the city.

 

After four generations of Ruttger family ownership, the historic Lake Bemidji resort is now under new ownership. Mark and Karrie Nelson purchased Ruttger’s Birchmont Lodge at the conclusion of the 2017/18 season and will be expanding the property into a year-round resort.

The couple, who bring ten years of experience from previous ownership of a family resort on Cass Lake, plan to re-brand Ruttger’s as an upscale, year-round family vacation destination and retreat venue.
