American Club Resort renovates The Carriage House

Kohler completed renovation on The Carriage House at The American Club resort in Kohler, Wis. The 55-room annex is located above the Forbes Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa. The Carriage House renovation is part of a multi-year renovation to the guest rooms at The American Club, one of 45 hotels in the world to be honored with the Forbes five-star and AAA Five-Diamond designations.

The Carriage House offers access to the common areas of the Kohler Waters Spa, known for its hydrotherapy treatments. Guests who stay at The Carriage House also enjoy complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cordials. Each room in The Carriage House also has a Kohler bathtub for relaxation.

The Carriage House has a new entrance off Highland Drive, providing guests with a greeted arrival from the front desk staff. The renovated historic building continues to serve as a showcase of the company's plumbing and interiors products and as a resort destination.


With a nod to the history of the unique building, each room of The Carriage House is named after a famous carriage or carriage manufacturer. The decor is on par with the major renovation at The American Club hotel, incorporating dark wood accents, furnishings and colored draperies.

Additionally, 12 rooms include Mark David trunks near the bedside as a nod to the interior of a historic carriage. The guestroom renovation incorporates plumbing, furniture and tile products from Kohler's product portfolio. The products are incorporated from the following brands: Kohler, Kallista, Baker, Mark David , McGuire, Ann Sacks and Robern.

Just as in The American Club, The Carriage House rooms include a porcelain Karner Butterfly, made at the Kohler factory across the street.

This cycle of hotel renovations began in December 2009 and is completed with The Carriage House reopening. This renovation follows the recent on-property enhancements of the Kohler Waters Spa, Cucina Italian Restaurant, Sports Core Health & Racquet Club, Inn on Woodlake and Horse & Plow.
