An INNside scoop: Plans approved for 'most environmentally-friendly hotel'

Published: Monday, April 1, 2013 at 04:34 PM.

"The target demographic is someone that would want to be in an edgy condo with good restaurants and bars very close," Humphreys said. "And it's all in walking distance to the retail in Rosemary Beach. It's good for everybody."

Humphreys said The Inn on the Gulf will not be a competitor with neighboring resorts, but will only add something new for visitors. It will also add a nice visual aspect to both Highway 98 and 30A.  As a 30A homeowner, he's adamant on preserving the beauty of the community.

"Rosemary Beach is very protective of its environment," he said. "I've been to resorts in places like the Caymans. They have a nice hotel, but they don't have the little towns like WaterColor, Seaside and Alys Beach . It's a unique place."

Work will begin soon, and by summer 2014, Humphreys predicts phase one of The Inn project will be complete.

"I never had any negative feedback at all," Humphreys said. "Being a long-time owner, I thought it was important to have a property that's four or five stars level at the entrance to Rosemary Beach and 30A. I'm glad to have this opportunity and community support."
