Four Seasons Island Resort to reopen
IRON MOUNTAIN — With new ownership in place, an iconic Wisconsin resort is set to reopen after being closed for several years while a ski and golf resort in the Upper Peninsula will receive a multi-million dollar facelift.
The Four Seasons Island Resort in Pembine and Pine Mountain Ski and Golf Resort are now owned by a group with extensive experience in the Midwest repositioning real estate assets, the most recent being the Bancroft Luxury Apartment redevelopment in Saginaw, which was the catalyst for over $50 million in new and future investment.
Combined, the resorts represent nearly 100 jobs and millions of dollars in economic impact on the local communities. Thousands of visitors will be drawn to the resorts each year bringing much needed outside dollars to the area, having a positive effect on local businesses, employees and the local tax base.
Combined, the two resorts will offer year-round recreation opportunities including 27 holes of championship golf, state of the art meeting and wedding facilities, lodging for approximately 350, downhill skiing and snowboarding and fine dining to name a few.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to operate these resorts to produce the best possible recreational experience in the Midwest,” said Michael Cameron, general manager of both resorts. “New ownership remains committed to maintaining a family friendly resort destination that can remain affordable while delivering a quality experience. We’d like to sincerely thank the citizens of Iron Mountain and Pembine including the surrounding communities who have supported these resorts for many years. We are fully committed to working diligently to make much needed improvements while respecting the long and amazing history of these two incredible resorts.”
Four Seasons Island Resort, located on Miscauno Island, is a luxury island resort offering all-suite lodging, fine dining, spa, banquet/weddings and conference space, championship golf and recreational opportunities. The resort is located on the Menominee River and also offers access to area snowmobile and ATV trail access.
Four Season’s Boundries Bar will be opening sometime this fall with a new and expanded outdoor deck and inside improvements. The golf course will be undergoing major improvements and is planned to reopen spring of 2019. The lodging at Four Seasons is planning on reopening to overnight guest before January of 2019 and hopefully as early as November or December of 2018 in anticipation of a great snowmobile season.
Pine Mountain Ski and Golf Resort offers hotel and trailside lodging, fine dining, wedding and meeting space and is home to the five-star, nationally renowned TimberStone golf course. In the winter, Pine Mountain offers five lifts servicing 27 downhill runs known for its snowmaking and impeccably groomed terrain.
Renovations at Pine Mountain have already begun with a completion date before the winter ski season including a total renovations to all resort rooms, common areas, wedding and meeting facilities, parking lots, outside decks and lodge façade. Also many improvements are planned for the ski mountain and golf course with the goal of creating and improving one of the Upper Peninsulas finest ski and golf resorts. Pine Mountain will remain open for business during all renovations and the renovations will have minimal impact on guests and Famers restaurant patrons.
