November 2012 Meeting Recap – Sieting Hotel

Our featured presenter for the November potluck was Jeff Sieting of Kalkaska. Jeff presented his vision for his latest venture, the Kalkaska Sieting Hotel, a restoration project in the anchor block of Kalkaska. Current plans focus on the main floor of the historic building and include several food concepts and a display area for local artisans (including another ventuer of Jeff’s, Liberty Gumball Machines). Jeff is clearly passionate for both this building, whose roots date back to Sieting’s great uncle and, as well as its potential role in bringing new vigor to Kalkaska’s downtown.
