Arizona Landmark Gets a New Name

SEDONA, Ariz. - Feb. 17, 2017 - TelAve -- Guests, old and new, who visit Garland's Oak Creek Lodge, starting March 10, when the resort opens, will find on their next stay that the property has a new name, Orchard Canyon on Oak Creek, that honors the heritage of this exclusive destination and highlights why the place is a cherished Arizona landmark.

Ken McElroy, managing partner of the partnership that bought Garland's Oak Creek Lodge two years ago, knew early on that preservation was paramount. "The property is nestled in Oak Creek Canyon, right on the water. Within its ten acres are two of the original orchards that used to be so much a part of this region. They are still producing."

Gary and Mary Garland allowed the property to retain the Garland's name for two years, but recognized after that it would be time to pass the torch, just as they did when they bought the property from the Todds, more than forty years ago.

"It has been a joy living here and welcoming guests for all these years. There are so many stories, so many memories. I'm thrilled that the place is going to retain its heritage," said Gary Garland.

"The Orchard Canyon name perfectly reflects the essence of this place," said Chris Bosselman, general manager. The company worked with a Scottsdale-based branding company, Heasley & Partners, as well as asked regular guests for their input. The new name is a reflection of all the input received.

Orchard Canyon on Oak Creek will be transitioning from Garland's over the next several months. Everyone is invited to join in the journey as the new look and offerings that showcase this unique destination are brought to life.
