First Companies began it’s relationship with the management team at Arcadia Bluffs in 2009 when the company was hired to remove the roof from the existing clubhouse and add a second story lodge on top. ¬†Also included in the initial project was a full renovation of their dining room and pro shop, and the addition of a bar. ¬†The aggressive scheduled called for completion of the main floor by Mother’s Day and the lodge by Father’s Day – with construction taking place during the harsh winters of Northern Michigan along the lake. ¬†First Companies met the deadline, and with this first project so successful,¬†the company¬†was hired again in 2013 to add a new, casual dining restaurant and bar to the property for guests preferring a lite meal or sandwich versus the fine dining in the main restaurant. ¬†In 2014, the resort decided to add four high-end cottages overlooking the golf course with four bedrooms, a living room and an eating area. ¬†The following year, First Companies was hired to add a new banquet facility to accommodate special events and weddings with up to 100 guests. ¬†The room can be¬†divided in two with¬†50 guests in each, as needed. ¬†The beautiful banquet hall was so popular, it booked up immediately. ¬†In 2017, First Companies¬†completed a second, separate lodge next to the original to accommodate the growing number of guests to this beautiful location.
