Pleasant Beach Village has broken ground on 10 new suites for the Inn at Pleasant Beach, officials with the project have announced.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in spring 2019.
Bainbridge Island-based Clark Construction, an employee-owned construction company founded in 2006, is the contractor for the project.
Located on a 14-plus acre parcel in the Lynwood Center neighborhood, The Inn at Pleasant Beach boasts a wedding and events facility, dining, shopping, overnight accommodations and residential living units.
Officials said the inn will cost approximately $3.25 million to build to completion, including landscaping, furniture and décor.
The 6,827-square-foot building will feature traditional architecture with old world charm, in keeping with the existing architecture at Pleasant Beach Village.
“Pleasant Beach Village is one of the Northwest’s best kept secrets,” said Carolyn Zipeto, operations manager for Pleasant Beach Village. “It’s an ideal spot for corporate retreats, weddings and receptions, and as a weekend getaway for King, Pierce and Kitsap county residents.
“As our wedding and corporate event business has expanded, so has the demand for additional inn suites,” Zipeto said. “Being able to offer 22 suites will provide much needed lodging for both visitors and Islanders, who often have more guests than they can accommodate.”
Each suite will be approximately 500 square feet in size and will be individually decorated similar to the original 12 suites that were built in 2010. Suites will have a luxury king bed, a propane fireplace, flat-screen television and spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers.
Inn guests have access to a seasonal 25-yard outdoor pool, hot tub and a fitness center.
In addition to the inn, Pleasant Beach Village amenities include four restaurants, a pool club, retail shops and services, and residential living.
