Lodge Remodel Set to Begin

By CanyonLakeSoCal | Featured

Canyon Lake Lodge RemodelOne of the key features and favorite amenities in Canyon Lake is the beloved lodge.  It’s been a central part of the community for many years.  The current lodge gets great use as a restaurant, meeting & event space, and bar for events and TV sports… and of course delicious Sunday Brunches.  But over the years, many folks have expressed an interest in remodeling the lodge to make better use of the space.  So this month, the long anticipated remodel begins.  Here are a few details from the good folks at the Canyon Lake Property Owners Association about what to expect during the remodel process and what the completed project will look like:

The Association will be starting the expansion of the bar and lounge area at the Lodge on March 3. This project has a six to eight week timeline.

The plan is to make a larger bar and lounge area at the Lodge by enclosing the covered patio, as well as remove the center staircase to create space for a new dance floor. The current “L” shaped bar will be replaced with a new expanded “U” shaped bar that will more than double the existing seating capacity of the whole bar area. The uncovered patio space outside would still remain.

The dining area will be enclosed with double doors and the existing fireplace will be removed and replaced with a sound proof wall. Enclosing the dining area and adding a soundproof wall will enable the restaurant patrons to enjoy a private dining room for quiet dinners.

The Lighthouse Restaurant will suspend services in both the restaurant and bar area beginning March 3. The restaurant will only be open for special events and holidays such as Easter Sunday and Mother’s Day.

Canyon Lake Lodge Remodel Dance Floor SiteThe kitchen, Holiday Bay Room, Pool View Room and Sunset Beach Room will still be available during the project, so banquets and parties will still be able to take place during this time. For the lower level rooms, the main access point will be through the dining room elevator located near the entry door of the facility. All restrooms will be accessible on both lower and upper level floors of the facility.

Once complete the Lodge will have approximately 1,800 square feet of added usable space. The objective of this project is to make the facility much more functional for residents and increase the revenue the facility brings in.

Once complete, there will be a festive grand opening celebration that members are invited to attend. This event will feature signature Lighthouse Restaurant entrees and drink specials. The date and more details for this event will be announced as the project completion date nears.

 If members have any questions about the closure of the facility or upcoming banquets or events should contact Jeffrey Main, Director of Food and Beverage at 951-244-6841 ext. 723.   For more information and updates on this project members are encouraged to follow the Association on Facebook.
