Since Denise and Fulton Lovin swung the first sledgehammer to begin the renovation of an historic Downtown Boone property, The Horton Hotel has been at the center of community conversation. As the Lovins transformed their dream into reality, their idea for a boutique hotel was carefully executed, sourcing input from locals and future guests, to ensure the property had signature elements of both past and present built into its features.
On this week's installment of Mind Your Business, we discuss the transition of this property to a new, locally-centric ownership group, and hear about their vision for building on The Horton's recognition as one of the most unique hotels of its kind. We'll also hear about a new twist to that "local story," that makes The Horton so special -- one of three App State graduates who are using this opportunity to complete their own "Booneerang," and put to use the professional skills they were taught as they were falling in love with our community as students.
