Lodge in Bayfield County closer to remodel, reopening
CABLE, Wis. — A Florida hospitality company has signed an agreement to resurrect a landmark lodge in northern Wisconsin that has fallen on hard times.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that HK Hospitality Management has agreed to buy the Telemark Lodge in Cable for an expected $47 million. The management company has been researching, studying and negotiating with the lodge for nearly four years.
The management company plans to update the lodge to have 250 modern rooms. Company officials say plans for the 1,000-acre (almost 405-hectare) property include downhill and cross-country skiing, golf packages, concerts, food and wine events, film festivals and destination weddings.
The company also plans to buy an additional 500 acres (about 200 hectares) to provide a golf course and lake access.
