Work on a new 54-room inn and conference center is expected to begin immediately at Barnsley Resort, and the new facility could be open by next fall, according to a news release issued by the resort.
The project at the resort at Barnsley Gardens near Adairsville in Bartow County will create an additional 19,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
The resort will have a total of 150 guest rooms and create a minimum of 100 new jobs when completed.
“We are thrilled to expand the offerings at Barnsley Resort to meet a frequent request of our guests and clients,” said Matthew Saul on behalf of the resort ownership.
“We will maintain the intimate, exclusive feel that makes Barnsley Resort so special while being able to accommodate a broader range of corporate groups and social events,” Saul continued.
With more than 10,500 square feet of indoor space and 8,350 square feet available outdoors, the planned Georgian Hall Conference Center will host corporate meetings, weddings and other special events in a picturesque location in the resort’s historic district.
Barnsley Resort sits on 3,300 acres. The property was originally developed as a 19th century estate.
