So for those of you who are fixer-uppers, you'll appreciate that it is a long process if you are working on both the inside and outside of a property. That's why, after four years of owning The Inn at Water's Edge, we are super excited about finally getting to some of our exterior projects.
Last Spring, with the help of Leighton's Landscaping and Masonry, we boosted the look and safety of our riverside with boulders, plantings and mulched beds to create a natural barrier for that embankment. We also elevated our parking area which was originally gravel and tended to encourage weed growth and mud puddles depending on the weather, to one which is entirely paved and much easier to maintain (thanks to Wilk Paving Inc)!
In the Fall, Leighton's team came back and cobbled the walkways to our courtyard and pub entrances. This project was completed in April along with our amazing lakefront patio, firepit and stairway to the water. Our bocce court and horseshoe area have been revamped and large bluestone stairs have been added to the hillside for easier access to the lakefront/play area. It's hard to imagine all of the changes so I've added some photos to aid your imagination.
The pergola installation is scheduled for next week, and we're hoping for the newly planted grass to peek through soon... then we're ready to welcome you back!!! Opening day is May 19th which is almost sold out, but Memorial Day is still available! The summer is truly sweet on Echo Lake. Hope to see you soon.
