Dennis Mansfield, Contributing Writer

KALKASKA – Kalkaska Village President Jeff Sieting and a local landmark that bears his family’s name, the Hotel Sieting, are about to part ways. That’s because Sieting said he recently sold the building to investors from southern Michigan.

Sieting bought the hotel, which was built in 1912 by a relative, John Sieting, for $40,000 in 2011. And, after “over 4,800 hours in labor and tens of thousands” of dollars, Sieting finally reopened the building to house his own business in the spring of 2016.
