The project is the major renovation of a sleepy but charming hotel property in rural Maine. Located two hours from Portland and near the New Hampshire/Canadian border, this unique site has views of Saddleback mountain, Rangeley lake, and sweeping pine and birch forests. There are currently five buildings on the site, all in various states of upkeep. Dean Works is working with Maine-based architecture studio JODA, landscape architects ALA, and the hotel developer Uncommon Hospitality, on renovation plans for the existing structures and the design of the new thermal bath and spa hotel (shown above) that will be the key feature in this exciting development.
Our aim at the new building is to create a unique series of interconnected indoor and outdoor spaces that encourage both communal interaction and private relaxation. The new building is really two separate buildings connected by a breezeway; this breezeway separates a lush entry courtyard from the outdoor thermal bath space. The second story contains spa-like hotel rooms with views to the lake, mountains, and nearby golf course.
In total, the property will contain 25 hotel rooms, a large reception hall, a classic bar, upscale dining, outdoor thermal baths, saunas, and a swimming pool.
Construction is expected to start in Fall of 2021.
