Green Lake's Heidel House to close on May 20

GREEN LAKE, Wis. (WBAY) - The Heidel House Resort and Spa in Green Lake will close its doors on May 20.

A letter sent to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development states that the closing will impact 111 employees.

The original estate was built in 1890. In 1945, the Heidel Family purchased the property and turned it into a fine dining restaurant. By the 1970's, Heidel House had expanded into a full resort.

Heidel House is now owned by Green Lake Venture. The Evensong Spa is owned by South Street Partners. They are managed by Marcus Hotels and Resorts, a division of Marcus Corporation.

Marcus says some of the associates who will lose their job at Heidel House may have the opportunity to transfer to other positions within the corporation.

The resort urges customers to use gift cards or gift certificates before May 20.
