The Karsten Hotel has reopened this summer under new ownership with a new name. Alex Yanik, a California real estate investor, purchased the historic inn earlier this year and starting making rooms available in June. The Karsten Hotel had closed last year and Yanik says he is excited to add another hotel development to his worldly resume.
Yanik says plans are to eventually reopen the restaurant and original bar, which features stained glass and classic woodwork. The new name incorporates the Karsten Hotel name that goes back to 1912 but will be known as the Karsten Nest Hotel. Yanik says the 23-room hotel has busy this summer and he looks forward to updating more of the rooms and the building in the future.
