Board OKs resort on Fayetteville’s Gaines Estate

(Continued)

FAYETTEVILLE —

 

CASCADE RESORT PHASE 1 DETAILS

Vacation Rental Houses

Between 18 and 24 vacation rental houses containing one to four bedrooms are expected to range from 800 to 2,500 square feet in size. Homes will be rented by the day or week, primarily to persons utilizing the conference center facilities, persons vacationing in the area, and persons stopping overnight in Fayetteville while traveling to and from the northern U.S. and Canada and the southeast U.S. and Gulf Coast.

Conference Center/Reception Hall

Cascade intends to repair the fire damage to the Gaines Estate house and convert it into a conference center and reception hall. To the extent practical, the house will be repaired to its original design. Repair plans will be submitted to the Historical Committee for approval. It will be suitable for smaller size conferences of fewer than 50 people, as well as a meeting facility for corporations, civic organizations, weddings, class reunions, and other activities. The kitchen will be upgraded to allow for catering. Cascade intends to apply for a liquor license. A larger conference center may be constructed in the future.

Access Road and Parking

A paved access road from Maple Avenue across from the current intersection with Lively Street will be constructed. It will continue up through the woods to the right of the Gaines Estate house until reaching the existing asphalt driveway behind the house. It will continue to the pasture field behind the house and circle the perimeter of the field to provide access to the vacation rental houses. Shorter roads/driveways will be constructed as needed to each house. Parking for the housing units will be at each unit. A second access road will be constructed from the Maple Avenue frontage adjacent to the high school for future development outside of the Phase 1 area. The Lively Street access road will be surfaced with gravel during initial construction. The road will be paved prior to offering the housing units for rent.
