The new owners of the Dancing Bear, Mark and Sharon Oldham of Nashville, started Phase 1 of rebuilding the Dancing Bear facilities in January 2015.
The main structure on the grounds -- a lodge with 12 guest rooms, a restaurant, kitchen and offices --burned on Nov. 14, 2013. Since that time, the 32 acres at 137 Apple Valley Way have operated as a cabin rental business because none of those structures were touched by the blaze.
Phase 1 includes a new restaurant, a new Event Center, a 100 x 50-foot Event Lawn, plus four new cabins representing eight new guest accommodations. The total investment for Phase 1 is over $3 million. He said it will generate 10-15 new jobs in Townsend.
