Lewis Begins Cedarbrook Lodge Expansion

GGLO tapped for Cedarbrook Lodge redesign

Wright Hotels, a Seattle-based company, is the managing member of Cedarbrook Lodge.

The project, designed by GGLO and is being built by Lease Crutcher Lewis, will increase Cedarbrook’s capacity by 60 percent, bringing the number of guestrooms and suites to 167. Also included in the expansion design is a new 3,350-square-foot spa, an outdoor heated whirlpool and an additional 49 guest parking spaces.

GGLO also performed the original design and architecture of Cedarbrook Lodge.

Phase one of the renovation includes the Spa at Cedarbrook Lodge, which will be located on the ground floor of the Big Cedar (main) building adjacent to Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar’s lounge in the space which is currently the Brightwood Board Room. The spa will feature a steam room, six treatment rooms including two double/couples rooms, as well as a Vichy shower treatment room, two aesthetician treatment rooms and four manicure/pedicure stations. The Brightwood Board Room will be relocated to the second floor of the Big Cedar in the space which is currently occupied by Coastal Hotel Group’s corporate offices.

The heated outdoor whirlpool will be located outside of the fitness center overlooking the Evergreen Lawns. The eight-by-17-foot whirlpool has custom-designed cedar panel will slide over the top when the pool is closed, creating a terrace patio.

Construction on Cedarbrook’s new Alder guest room building is scheduled for completion in Q3 of 2014. The new five-story building features 63 guestrooms, including two Presidential Suites, and a communal Living Room with sitting areas, TV, 24/7 complimentary snacks and more. The new building will connect to the Reflections Gallery of the Big Cedar building.

The new guestrooms will have similar fixtures and furnishings as the existing Spruce and Dogwood guestroom buildings. Additionally, the Presidential Suites will include floating fireplaces, seating areas and an option for connecting rooms.
