New motto: "When they build it, no one will come."
speaking of building. is progress still being made on the hotel? and does everyone still believe that this is a good idea? it seems to be an ill-conceived (for this mountain) design quickly thrown together to meet some EB-5 deadline being managed, i assume, by the same people who have brought nothing but laughable leadership and an obvious lack of understanding, knowledge or caring for the actual mountain and its history.
or am i alone on that and it's any beds are good beds at this point?
If construction has shifted to the interior, the webcam won't show as much action. The key is the number of trucks at the worksite, and I don't think the webcam shows where people park.
I am not convinced that the hotel will change the feel of Burke as much as people fear. The truth is that, even with the hotel, there will still be very few beds in the area. The mountain can easily absorb the extra people staying in the hotel.
I've always said that I want the mountain to be profitable - or at least to break even. The hotel could be an important part of that.
My biggest fear, knowing that Stenger stated this past Spring that Burke was only 25% funded, is that the hotel will sit half-finished. But I have not seen indications that this will happen. Until I do I remain optimistic.
Right. Only those couple lots off of the access road. The lot in front of MidBurke is completely gone.
When that did not work, he contacted local merchants and told them that any "Burke" merchandise that they sell, independent of the mountain, must be changed to "Q Burke Mountain." For example, a local potter who makes mugs with an image of the mountain from Darling Hill, has been told that he can't use "Burke Mountain" as the label...it has to be "Q Burke Mountain." Post cards that are taken by local photographers and show Burke Mountain from Lyndonville? It has to be Q Burke Mountain.
All you can do is laugh.
