I had the opportunity to attend the Grand Opening of the new Grandstay Hotel in Chisago City. Let me just say..wow. What a beautiful hotel we have here in our community. Mike and Dianne Hursh have built an amazing asset in Chisago City. The hotel has 51 rooms, all beautifully decorated. There are rooms for the extended stay guests that include a full kitchen with full size refrigerators. There are whirlpool suites equipped with huge whirlpools and fireplaces. All suites have sleeper sofas and flat screen televisions. The lobby of the hotel is very welcoming and inviting. Dianne selected all of the art you will see in the lobby and main floor. The hotel has a great complimentary breakfast with local pastries and premium coffee. If you have kids, or even if you don't, the swimming pool is absolutely beautiful.
Painted with beautiful colors, the pool is very large and handicapped accessible. The hotel is managed by Carrie Dirks, a local resident. Carrie is such a great person with a personality that lights up a room. She is going to do a wonderful job with the hotel. I would like to thank Mike and Dianne and the rest of the investors for taking a chance on our community. They see potential. So do I. Mike told the audience at the opening that he wanted to accomplish three things with the hotel: 1. Provide a good return for the investors. 2. Bless the community with the availability for events such as school events, sporting events and more. 3. Be a great place to work. I think they have already accomplished many of these goals. Even though the hotel is in our back yard, we can still utilize it. What a great vacation it would be to pack a light bag and drive five minutes to a great hotel. Just forget about your hectic life and unwind knowing you have only a five minute commute home. I know people who have already had birthday parties for their children there. They said it was perfect.
