April at Jail Hill Inn

Spring is in the air all over and it’s very exciting to see things come to life at Jail Hill Inn.  With this being my first spring at the property, it’s a fun mystery to see different bushes and flowers coming up around the yard and many ideas of enhancing and expanding the outdoor appearance of the property.  With the warmer weather I have begun painting the ornate fence in front of the inn from white to black!  Black will be a wonderful backdrop and complement the bricks nicely and is a wonderful clean and classic look for a property such as this.

Inside Jail Hill Inn, we recently said goodbye to the large spiral staircase that was on the first and second floor.  The staircase was determined to not be necessary as it took up a large portion of the first floor lounge and dining area and also took up 1/3 of the second floor, which will be replaced with the floor being put back in and making a very stately and charming second floor guest suite for guests.

I have also been busy meeting with contractors, finalizing bids, plans, measurements and working closely with the bank and the financial team as we craft the next steps of Jail Hill Inn as it moves from the design phase to the implementation and actual construction phase for the next 4 months.

I will be setting up the Jail Hill Inn Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Foursquare, Google spots and Yelp and TripAdvisor once the business opens, later this year.  Please watch the site for those updates and look forward to following on social media as well!

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more exciting progress soon!
