Nestled amongst the up-and-coming businesses on East Cesar Chavez, is the cozy, yet redesigned Eastside Inn. The charm of this 1925 Craftsman home has been preserved in its renovation into a 7-room inn. Owners and parents of this personalized project, Kathy Setzer and George Reynolds, have made it their goal to transform this small house into much needed lodging on the eastside of I-35, serving the local community of residents and businesses. From the exterior elevation to the original long-leaf pine floors, Kathy and George have diligently worked with contractors and architects to maintain the character of this lovely inn while transforming it into the soon-to-be quaint 7-room inn located at 1609 E. Cesar Chavez.
The crew renovating and building onto the inn broke ground in January of 2011, and hope to open the doors for business in the fall of this year. During the initial construction, lending partners Capital CDC and University Federal Credit Union teamed up to enjoy a groundbreaking ceremony with the group involved in making this dream a reality. The wonderful team at University Federal Credit Union, led by Mike Gandy and Alexis Michael, partnered with Capital CDC’s Kathy Kyrish to provide SBA 504 financing to the Eastside Inn, and both partners are delighted to see this business grow.
