THE INNS & SPA AT MILL FALLS UNVEILS NEW “MILL FALLS AT THE LAKE” NAME AND REDESIGNED LOGO

New Name Capitalizes on Lake Setting; Highlights Collection of Properties and Services Offered on Site


Meredith, N.H. – The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls has announced it is transitioning to a new “Mill Falls at the Lake” name and has redesigned its logo, marking an evolution of the lakeside property and an increased variety of offerings on site for guests. According to Rusty McLear, president and CEO of Mill Falls, the refreshed name and logo are rooted in the property’s proud history of being located in Meredith and they reflect a more accurate depiction of the Inns’ presence on the lake.

“We found that our guests, when they thought of coming to visit us, always thought of getting away to the lake, or relaxing on or near the lake, or enjoying the lake,” said McLear. “Over time, we have made changes to our logo as we have added more and more inns and properties to our location. But we perhaps overlooked the obvious selling feature of our place --- the beautiful location directly on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. We weren’t telling our story as clearly as we could have been, and we believe this redesigned logo accurately reflects our desirable lakeside location, and graphically simplifies our name at the same time.”

Making an identity change is not something McLear, or his team at Mill Falls, took lightly. The newly designed logo is quite similar to the original look and maintains the Inn graphic and typeface, yet clearly highlights the new Mill Falls at the Lake name. (A graphic of the logos for the property since 1985 is attached.)

“This new look will serve us well into the future, and will allow for continued growth without having to change our logo every time we add an Inn or other feature,” said McLear. “We’ve evolved and grown a great deal over the last few years – including the newly constructed Lodges and the addition of the Lake Activity Center which is home to EKAL Lake Activities and Sacred Waters Yoga Studio. We recognized that our logo truly represents the heart and soul of our property, and serves as an emotional “token” to our guests. We are delighted with the new look and name, and we expect our guests will continue to enjoy the luxurious accommodations and fine dining and activities – all by “the lake” –that they have come to expect from us.”

Guests can expect to see the new name and logo beginning in February.

Church Landing and CCI take the Made in America Challenge

Church Landing and CCI take the Made in America Challenge

01/09/2012

CHURCH LANDING AND CONNESTON CONSTRUCTION, INC. TAKE MADE IN AMERICA CHALLENGE WITH CHURCH LANDING PHASE II EXPANSION. 

Project will be 95% Made in America Without Significant Increase in Cost. 

Meredith, N.H. – The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls in Meredith, in conjunction with Conneston Construction, Inc. (CCI), of Gilford, have taken on the Made in America Challenge with the Church Landing Phase II expansion project. The Made in America Challenge, an initiative of ABC-TV’s World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, is based on the simple concept of buying products that are made in America and help put Americans back to work.

“ABC World News Tonight and Diane Sawyer have been touting the virtues of this idea on the show for some time and it sparked our interest here in Meredith as we are in the construction phase of the Church Landing expansion,” said Rusty McLear, president of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “We thought ‘Wouldn’t it be great to take this challenge, make this construction project Made in America, and help create jobs for Americans?’”

CCI began construction this Fall on the Church Landing expansion, which features two new buildings with a total of 17,000 square feet of guest rooms, lounges and an indoor-outdoor pool.

“In a construction meeting in October, we went around the room and asked ourselves ‘Would it really be that hard to make sure as much, if not all, of the project was in fact manufactured in this country?’," said Ross Currier, Vice President of CCI. “We wondered that maybe a lot of what we’re already buying meets the definition of being Made in America. So that’s just what we did.”

According to Currier, all subcontractors were tasked with analyzing every single material to be used in the construction project to determine if everything being used is Made in America.

“If we determined it wasn’t Made in America, we asked ourselves, can we switch to a product that is domestically made? Is there an option to buy it in the US? If there is, will we have to pay more?,” said Currier. “These were the questions we asked ourselves, and what we discovered is that this expansion project could be 95% Made in America.”

McLear hopes this effort will help to serve as a blueprint for others looking to take the Made in America Challenge and help put Americans back to work.

“While it has taken some effort, this initiative has been well worth the time spent,” said McLear. “We are proud to say this project is 95% American made. Everything from the nails, the steel, the staples, the lumber and the bathtubs are domestically made. The remaining 5% that we weren’t able to buy American included the limited access elevator that we plan to install. That particular type of elevator is just not made in the U.S., but we are working with a manufacturer in Canada to supply that. Additionally, a small amount of the electrical panels, breakers and other switching gear, as well some of the screws, nuts and bolts are made outside the U.S.”

Currier added that the team was able to realize that in some instances products were the same price, yet provided better quality

“By creating awareness of this effort, we have been able to create a Made in America development, and have not added substantially to the total budget, just $4,000 or so to overall cost,” added McLear. “Even though certain goods are more expensive, in total, the cost of the project is nearly identical – an effort well worth the time, awareness, and minimal increased expense, especially if we can contribute to putting Americans to work.”

McLear noted that while several New Hampshire projects receiving federal stimulus funds are required to buy American made products, this construction project is the only privately funded project in New Hampshire to be Made in America. According to findings on ABC-TV World News, if every builder bought just 5 percent more American materials it could create 220,000 jobs.

Meredith, N.H. – The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls broke ground today to begin construction on Phase II of its Church Landing expansion.

All rooms will all offer spectacular lake views, balconies and screened porches. In addition, each room will have a fieldstone fireplace, indoor whirlpool bath, wet bar, double glass and tile shower, and a bathroom LCD TV.

“We are thrilled to begin construction on this part of our expansion project,” said Rusty McLear, president and CEO of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. “Church Landing at Mill Falls continues to be enjoyed by tourists and residents alike, and these additions will certainly enhance our guests’ experience.” 

The expansion will also offer:
• A new lobby and game area
• A second indoor/outdoor pool with two jacuzzi’s 
• An outdoor fire-pit, a large sundeck with food and beverage service
• All buildings will be connected to each other with a covered cedar walkway
• New boat docks
• 186 feet of additional lake frontage

“We have a vast number of guests who regularly stay with us, and it’s exciting that each time they visit, we are adding more facilities and more options to consider, while keeping our focus on our core mission – unforgettable customer service,” said Gail Batstone, General Manager of The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls. 

Samyn & D’Elia Architects of Ashland are heading up the design, and CCI Construction is handling the general contracting duties. Pat Sava Designs will be coordinating the interior, and the rooms will be decorated with dark wood in the Adirondack style. 

Contributing banks that helped make this project possible are Laconia Savings Bank and Meredith Village Savings Bank.

The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls recently completed renovating the carport at Church Landing to accommodate more event space, including additional breakout rooms, vendor space and dining areas. The new facility, called “The Carriage House” added 1,700 additional square feet of meeting space and an expanded lobby area of 955 square feet, with fourteen-foot ceilings. The new facility offers expansive views of Lake Winnipesaukee.
