Keswick Hall & Golf Club to begin major renovation in January
Keswick Hall & Golf Club, a 600-acre luxury resort located just outside Charlottesville, announced that the property would begin a major renovation of its 48-room hotel in January.
The project includes comprehensive reconstruction of the building’s interior and foundation as well as a floor-to-ceiling makeover of all hotel rooms and suites, public spaces, meeting facilities and food and beverage outlets. The goal of the improvements is to preserve the integrity of the structure and provide a more luxurious setting for guests.
During the renovation, the resort’s golf course, Full Cry at Keswick Golf Club, will remain open, as will the golf clubhouse with its Club Grill restaurant, spa, fitness center, driving range and members’ pool.
Also unaffected will be the property’s pavilion pool and tennis facilities. The hotel is scheduled to reopen in the spring of 2019.
Global design firm Hart Howerton, with headquarters in New York and San Francisco, will oversee the project. Hart Howerton has helped shape legacy clubs and resorts in places such as South Carolina’s Palmetto Bluff, Jupiter Island Club in Hobe Sound, Fla.; and The Island House in Nassau, The Bahamas.
“It’s truly an honor for us to be the guardian of such a beautiful building that now needs to be modernized to remain at the forefront of premier luxury resorts in the U.S.,” John Trevenen, Keswick Hall's general manager, said in a statement. “The hotel has long been the centerpiece of this incredible property, and we look forward to our members, guests and staff enjoying the results of the renovation for years to come.”
Set in the historic hunt and wine country of central Virginia, Keswick Hall & Golf Club is owned by Robert and Molly Hardie. It has received the Forbes Five-Star Award for luxury and service every year since 2015.
