Lake City Boutique Hotel Opens Next Month


The Inn at the Crossroads has maintained a commanding presence on Main Street in the not-so-sleepy little city just 20 miles south of Florence since construction began last year on the new hotel.

A glimpse through one of the oversized windows fronting Main Street suggests the hotel is far from complete, but inside the three-story brick-faced structure, final details are underway. Extensive wood trim nears completion on the main stairway, furniture begins to occupy rooms and floor-by-floor the building is transforming from the organized clutter of an active construction zone to the serenity of a getaway destination.

According to Steve Moore, project general manager with the management company overseeing current operations, Strand Development Company, everything is expected to be ready to receive guests for their first large group of reservations scheduled for Oct. 17. A grand opening ceremony is planned for the coming holiday season, though a date has yet to be set.

Original plans called for an aggressive construction timetable and an opening date in time for the second year of ArtFields, held in April in Lake City. Once begun, however, several unexpected factors pushed back construction — more extreme than usual weather including winter storms and high levels of rainfall — and a tentative opening date was set for Sept. 15.
