Arborwood held its official unveiling of the newly remodeled venue with an open house near the Frankfort Commons Golf Course Tuesday afternoon and evening.
The Arborwood Experience as it is called means a main level and a lower level are available for everyone to enjoy. The Arbor Room on the main level seats 230 and is a great place for large gatherings such as a wedding, corporate gatherings and other special events. There is also a Creekside Bar and Lounge which seats 30 along with the Arborwood Garden and Patio which is the perfect setting for a garden party or wedding event.
The lower level features a Gathering Room that seats 40 and is a great space for families to gather, or for social clubs and small business meetings. Also on the lower level is the Farmhouse, which seats 30 for a casual room that creates a warm and cozy setting for any occasion along with the Bridal Suite and the Groom’s Suite.
“What we really want is for this to be a great place for the community to enjoy and a great place to be able to celebrate life’s celebrations,” said Cindy Shoup Cacy. “So, whether it’s a wonderful wedding or a shower or a retirement party or a celebration of life. I think that’s the most rewarding of what we do here is that we can be part of everyone’s special moments.”
Cacy said remodeling took about three months and it started because they couldn’t have events due to COVID.
“We came over in January and started ripping out of the carpet,” she said. “We ripped out the caret and thought we better keep going. One thing led to another and before you knew it, we were in construction mode.”
The open house featured appetizers, a newly renovated bar and live music from Jerod Bolt. An featured prominently is a new color scheme of gray and white.
“That’s just really a fresh look and it’s really great for any event that comes in here or wedding because they can use any color and its neutral and it works for this,” said Amy Shoup Mennen. “I just recently remodeled by bathroom and I used the same color in my bathroom. The new subway tile that’s behind our bar is the same that I used.”
Mennen also said the new flooring is perfect for dancing.
“We are thrilled that the community is so supportive of what we have done here,” said Cacy. “We like being part of the community and hopefully will a lot of great memories about this place.”
