The Ride Inn, the new hotel on the site of the old Vernonia Inn, is scheduled to open this spring.
“We are shooting for sometime in April but we’ll be open by May 1 for sure,” said property owner Jerry Cordell in a recent interview. Cordell said he and his partners have been working through the winter at their own pace, renovating and cleaning up the property to get it ready for guests.
“When it’s ready we’ll open it,” said Cordell. “We’re getting close now.”
