Weddings and Meetings Market Represents Opportunity For West Eureka Springs (Eureka Springs, AR) – February 28, 2010 – Inn Nature Hospitality Incorporated has announced a March 25th Grand Opening date for the new Sky Ridge Pavilion, multi-purpose reception and event facility near Beaver Lake in West Eureka Springs.

Located at The Retreat at Sky Ridge cabin resort, the Sky Ridge Pavilion is less than 6 miles west of Thorncrown Chapel, one of America’s favorite wedding locations. The owners of the Sky Ridge Pavilion hope that it will provide a suitable space for large receptions for Thorncrown Chapel brides and grooms, who currently have to travel a long distance to find a reception space.

The Open House will be held from 4 to 8 pm allowing visitors to tour the Pavilion and select themed cabins at the 130+ acre Sky Ridge resort, located near Route 62 and Highway 187. Drawings will be held for special prizes and a free stay at the resort.

Designed and built by Roger Carter of Coyote Custom Log Homes, the 2,200 square-foot Pavilion seats up to 100 guests, with additional seating and event space on an adjoining outdoor covered terrace overlooking two of the resort’s ponds and the waterfalls that create Cedar Creek.

“When we acquired The Retreat at Sky Ridge resort, we knew Eureka Springs was one of the top weddings destination markets in the US. The property’s proximity to two of the areas most popular wedding venues, Thorncrown Chapel and Blue Spring, was especially important. The need for additional, large, multi-purpose event facilities in West Eureka Springs represented a real opportunity,” said Eric Studer, President of Inn Nature Hospitality, Inc. He added, “There are great wedding and meeting facilities in town, but West Eureka Springs offers a unique alternative with a tranquil, natural setting surrounded by the woods, hills, and water.”

Shannon Magee, Executive VP with Inn Nature Hospitality, Inc. will manage guest relations and event bookings for groups. “In addition to The Pavilion,” Magee explained, “the resort offers a number of alternative wedding locations including the Starlight Gazebo, pond side, private in-cabin ceremonies, or on Sky Ridge overlooking Beaver Lake.” She added, “For casual outdoor gatherings, we have a separate covered picnic patio with huge party grill and fire circle. It’s popular for family reunions and with our stargazing guests.”

The facility will begin taking advance bookings for weddings, receptions, meetings, and retreats on March 1st, 2010.
