US Berkshires region Massachusetts

Mountainside Luxury Glamping Resort

Key Service: Strategic Advice
Location: The Berkshires, MA
Product: Location & Site Analysis
Office: Horwath HTL Oregon

Scope of Work
Horwath HTL was engaged to provide a detailed location and site analysis for this exciting project.  The location is in the northern region of the Berkshires a popular east coast leisure destination.  The site is located on the side of a mountain and had recently received approval to build a 46-unit glamping resort for six months of the year.

Description of Project
The project will include 46 two-key glamping units and a significant spa facility.  The site includes a large pond and existing lodge, pole barn and heritage farmhouse with related utility buildings. This was a difficult project to assess as even though many outdoor activities are available in the region, there is no comparable resorts in this area of New England.   We concluded, however, that subject to certain conditions, including the approval of year round operations, the hotel be managed by a known spa or wellness brand, which will provide much needed technical services for the developer.

Project Status
The client is submitting for year-round use and looking to engage Horwath HTL to conduct an operator selection process.
