Large Round Top resort redevelopment proposed

Jan 30, 2024 12:43 pm

Andrea Macko reports in Porcupine Soup about a massive redevelopment of the Blackhead Mountain Lodge & Country Club in Round Top that is going before the Cairo Planning Board. The proposal would include approximately 126 units, a 91,500-square-foot main lodge, tennis courts, pools, a restaurant, bar, helipad, and 288 parking spaces on 102.31 acres. The proposal is from RCBG JV Manager, LLC of San Francisco, CA, and real estate and hotel developers Donald Chick and R Henry Courtemanche of California are named within the numerous documents submitted to the town. The Massmaann family ran the property as a family business for five generations, but sold it last year. It previously included an 18-hole golf course, 22 lodging rooms, a restaurant, and club house, but the golf course is not included in the redevelopment plans. The proposal says the project will result in an increase in traffic, but "we expect the existing traffic control at the area intersections (stop signs) will be adequate in managing future volumes.” Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
