Reinvestment continues at Treetops with over a half million dollars in upgrades to be completed in 2021

As the PACE project at Treetops roars on, additional reinvestment is taking place around the property to improve the look, feel and efficiency of the resort and improve our overall guest experience.

Projects already completed or in the works include a new stand up freezer for the Tavern on the Hill at Treetops North, additional ice machines in both hotels doubling the amount that are currently there and a fresh coat of paint for the Jones Clubhouse and Top of the Hill restaurants.  In the very near future, we will repave the entrance road and complete work from the past 2 summers to create a smooth surface from the front entrance to the back entrance of the main resort.  We will also repair the sidewalks outside of the Inn.

Later this summer, Treetops plans to install all new directional signage resort wide to create a uniform look throughout the resort but more importantly help guests find their way.  Treetops will also continue to upgrade its vehicle fleet throughout the year.  We also have big plans for an Extreme Tubing Expansion this summer and will expound on those details in a later entry.

Additional Capital is expected to be available in late summer/early fall and we’re excited to inform our guests about more spectacular upgrades as we move through what will prove to be one of the most active years in Treetops history.

Treetops investing millions to help you enjoy your stay at Michigan’s Most Spectacular Resort

Treetops has broken ground on several projects that will result in a noticeable difference to guests visiting the resort this year.  By securing a PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Loan Treetops has embarked on several projects that will improve energy efficiency, disaster resilience and/or water conservation.

Treetops plans to complete the entire $2.7 Million process over the course of 2021 allowing current and not so distant future guests to experience the upgrades right away.  Current and completed projects include a comprehensive upgrade of all lighting to LED, upgrading nearly all HVAC systems to 90+ efficiencies, installing room controls to regulate heating and cooling when not in use, an insulation renovation of our 3 most frequently used buildings and replacement of many entrance doors around the property.  Many of these upgrades are not flashy to the eye but Treetops guests will feel the difference while allowing our resort to be environmentally conscious.

PACE work is being carefully managed by Director of Maintenance, Doug Hoeh to stay on schedule and make an impact quickly while being meticulous to not adversely affect or displace the thousands of guests that will be visiting in the next few months.  Projects on the horizon include a new roof on the Convention Center, HVAC units in the restaurants and meeting rooms and a lighting upgrade complete with easy dimming switches in meeting rooms as well.  Just in time to welcome meeting groups back to Treetops as COVID restrictions continue to ease as we beat this pandemic.

We’re thrilled to welcome our guests to Treetops in 2021 to show them how their business has allowed us to reinvest millions back into our property.
