Pictured above from left to right are the new owners Frieja and Keith Gross, daughter Heaven Wacha and assistant Caitlin Kinman.
Keith and Freija Gross from Conception Junction, Mo., have recently purchased the former White Rock Motel. The couple came to Rock Port in search of property to expand their current business Twice Is Nice, a consignment store located in Maryville, Mo. During their search they came across the motel property with the intentions of making it into a consignment store with a few possible motel rooms. When purchasing the property they were asked if they would leave it as a full motel for at least one year to help accommodate the crews working on the local wind farms. Keith and Freija graciously agreed to keeping it a full motel. The new Rock Port Cabins is projected to open on March 15, 2017. The completely remodeled motel will have 17 furnished units total, 11 standard cabins, 4 junior cabins, 1 one bedroom junior suite and 1 full cabin with the capability to sleep 12-14 people. Room amenities consist of but are not limited to bunk beds, small appliances, smart tvs and free wifi. The Rock Port Cabins will offer local rates and are pet friendly.
