CHARLESTON, SC — The Indigo Road Hospitality Group has added Bridge Creek Inn in Clayton, GA, to its growing portfolio of boutique hotels throughout the Southeast and Midwest, the company announced Wednesday. Indigo Road will manage the property, slated to open in September 2023, for Ridgeline Investment Partners, the property’s owner.
“Each property in our portfolio is thoughtfully added, carefully curated, and designed with our development partners to embody the essence of its location,” said Larry Spelts, president of Lodging & Lifestyle Adventures at Indigo Road. “With each new addition to our portfolio of boutique hotels throughout the country, we continue to focus upon authentic experiences reflective of each new hotel’s location and brand identity, challenging ourselves to innovate and evolve while staying true to our core values. We are thrilled to welcome this new property into our collection and look forward to creating memorable experiences for our guests.”
Bridge Creek Inn will have 45 guest rooms, a coffee bar, a bar and restaurant, and multiple indoor and outdoor event venues. It will be located on the corner of South Main Street and Derrick Street, where a hotel has stood since the 19th century, when Rabun County, the county Clayton is located in, was established. Known for decades as The Clayton Hotel, the new property is being restored using the building from the 1950s.
In proximity to varied terrains, beautiful scenery, and abundant wildlife, Rabun County is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream; it offers diverse outdoor activities and experiences, including boating, swimming, fishing, camping, rafting, and hiking. Bridge Creek Inn marks Indigo Road’s fourth property located within or near the Blue Ridge Mountains range.
