Some great news!!! We received our final Certificate of Occupancy today for the lobby and restaurant area of the hotel. We are doing things in phases. I have opened the Roseboro Emporium Antique Store in the lobby for now. It has been open for a few weeks and doing very well. It is open on weekends. If you are looking for fine quality antiques, stop in and see our collection!
The dining room, ballroom and back building will be used to host the Victorian Holiday Celebration in December. The entire area will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland. Those of you who attended 2 years ago got a sample of the amazing holiday transformation. The Victorian Holiday Celebration is December 9th, 10th, and 11th.
Once Victorian Holiday Celebration is over, we will be opening a Tea Room (more on this later) in the dining room area and expanding the antique shop as well. After the Tea Shop is open (targeted in March), we will start to remodel the shop areas of the Holland House. The Roseboro Emporium will move into that area and we will be able to then open the full service restaurant at that time. We are working hard to get the new restrooms done in time for Victorian Holiday Celebration. The walls go up this coming week. We are making progress!!!
