Kelsey and Kaley Blythe have been busy renovating Rosie’s Cabin-Wedding and Event Center, an event venue just west of Uniontown.
There have been updates to the large event center and also the accompanying cabin that is available.
In the large event center, with a large front porch overlooking the pond, walls have been painted, lights hung from the rafters, drapes hung and the bathroom updated, Kelsey said.
The cabin on the property will be used for guests and has seen a more extensive remodel.
“The cabin will be posted on Airbnb and will be available for hunters during hunting season,” she said. ” When there are weddings it will be used for a dressing cabin and a honeymoon suite for the couple. Our first wedding will be at the end of July. We had the Uniontown (High School) Prom on April 13th this year.”
The cabin price is still to be determined, she said.
“The only thing left in the cabin was the bathroom sink,” Kelsey said of the cabin remodel.
“Jeremy Hoover Construction is doing all the remodeling for Rosie’s and is in the final phase of putting it all together. Original hardwood floors were redone this month and the floor is now dry and beautiful. Light fixtures are hung and bathroom is complete with a tiled walk-in shower with a rain-style showerhead.”
“Everything from plumbing and electric to cabinets and walls are all new,” she said.
A back door was added to provide two exits.
“Up next is applying all of our beautiful walnut and cedar wood accents,” she said. ” We will have a bar in the cabin made of walnut, a countertop made of cedar and an awesome accent wall made of wood as well as the trim all of walnut. All of the wood used is from trees cut by my husband on this property and made into boards by the Amish.”
Then doors will be hung, cabinets installed, and new appliances added.
“It is very modern, minimalistic and functional,” Kelsey said.
“The usage of this venue is ultimately limitless. We are only limited by our creativity and how we wish to market the place. To start, we want to appeal to all the young ladies and gentlemen in this area that are planning for their big wedding day.”
The Blythe’s are marketing the venue in the Kansas City and Springfield, MO areas, as well as locally.
“Our weekend wedding price is $3,250 and that gives you everything Rosie’s has to offer for the entire weekend. The place is yours from Friday to Sunday at noon,” Kelsey said.
Graduation parties, family reunions, class reunions, anniversaries, bridal showers, baby showers are welcomed to Rosie’s Cabin, she said.
“At this time we are offering half-day events for 2019 at $200 and full day events at $400,” Kelsey said.
“We are gladly opening our doors to those events and believe we have priced them accordingly,” Kelsey said. “We are new to this type of business and have a learning curb ahead. So our pricing is subject to change.”
“We are going to host a big open house bash sometime late in the summer, with a date to be announced,” she said. “We joined the (Fort Scott)Chamber of Commerce so we are excited to have them out and do an official ribbon cutting at that time. Snacks and drinks will be served. Come-and-go-as-you-please type of party that may turn into an all evening affair with music and dancing!”
