Over a decade of planning and delays caused by the Great Recession will be in the past when groundbreaking takes place in Sister Bay for the Dorr Hotel project. Ceremonies are set for December 3rd at the project site on Mill Street. The Dorr Hotel will have 47-rooms, including eight suites. Village Administrator Beau Bernhoft says the Dorr Hotel will bring back some accommodations lost when the former Helm's Four Season Hotel was demolished to create the Sister Bay Public Beach.
DCEDC Executive Director Jim Schuessler says the addition of the Dorr Hotel is an economic boost for the entire county.
The Dorr Hotel is expected to be completed in 2021. Reservations will be taken starting in the spring of 2020.
