Lodge rooms and Conference Center
A re-energized Austin Trupp announced the recent re-opening of the Savannah Lakes Resort on
“We’re booking a ton of folks,” Trupp said. “”We’re very happy with the property. There’s a lot of pent-up demand out there, and we’ve been working the phones, booking primarily previous guests and groups.
Trupp and his wife, Stephanie, have renovated the 40 rooms on the ground level of the lodge and plan to renovate the 40 others on the upper level “as we move forward,” he said. “Most of our rooms have one queen-sized bed and a queen pull-out sofa, but we have made some of our rooms with two queen-sized beds. The rooms look every bit as nice and even more spacious,” Trupp said.
Improvements include re-wiring the lodge with wired and wireless internet that extends to the pool and beach areas, unlimited local and long distance calling and digital TV provided by West Carolina Telephone Co. The swimming pool, mini-golf course, tennis courts and walking trail have been redone and are ready for guests. The pool is scheduled to open April 1 and be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“The Beach club is the last thing on our list,” Trupp said. “And we hope to have it finished by week’s end. We’ll be fixing up and cleaning up the club for use as a banquet room.
“Thanks to the Thurmond Lake Sail & Power Squadron and help from a lot of volunteers, the beach has plenty of sand. We have cleaned and raked the beach just in time for the lake water levels to rise. Let’s hope that continues,” he said.
The resort features other amenities, too. The former Cove Restaurant serves as a second banquet room, and there are two large conference rooms, a 20-person executive meeting room, a business center with two computers, telephone and copying machine and a fitness center with free weights.
“Historically, the majority of our guests come for business meetings and special events like family reunions, weddings and church related retreats,” Trupp said.
For a limited time, the Resort is offering a special introductory rate on its lodge and tome homes. The rate for rooms is currently $69/night plus tax, and Trupp also has two-bedroom Southwind Cove townhomes available for $149/night plus tax.
“If you have not seen the resort recently, please feel free to swing by and take a look,” said Trupp. “We look forward to accommodating your out-of-town guests.
