These are 2 proposed phases: Phase 1 is to add the existing 2 bedroom, 1 bath house of approximately 750 sf creating a 4 bedroom, 3 bath house of approximately 2000 sf and accommodating up to 10 visitors. Gravel parking is proposed for up to 10 vehicles. The operation will run 200 days per year (or less) and serve 3 meals a day and will be primarily used during late spring through early fall. If Phase 1 is successful, Phase 2 will be implemented several years later (within 6 years) and will be a separate lodging facility of similar size with necessary infrastructure (up to 1,999 sf lodge structure with a gravel parking lot) for a maximum of 10 additional guests. In addition to the owners, 0 to 2 employees are anticipated (based on the expansion).
