In brief: Felicita to reopen, scale back services
Felicita Resort in Middle Paxton Township, Dauphin County, plans to reopen in May, seven months after closing, but with a much different business model.
The 18-hole golf course, the spa and the tavern won't open this spring, and Felicita will now become a "special events resort" for functions such as weddings and corporate events.
Catering and planning for the events will be outsourced, and the resort's 53 rooms spread among five lodges and one inn will be for only those attending an event at the site, according to Felicita owner Richard C. Angino. The resort will be called Felicita Gardens to emphasize the landscaping of the 45 gardens and nature trails around the resort.
