In 1962, Gene Kelly purchased the thirty-two room motel. When Gene passed away in 1976, his son, Tom Kelly, took over. In 1978, Tom put the first spa into a room, which was a ground-breaking idea. In 1985, the pool area was enclosed, creating a Tropical Dome. These additions made the Wildwood Inn Tropical Dome and Spa the sensation it is today. In 2004 we started construction on our newest addition that replaced the original building that it all started in. This added twelve more Theme Suites and brought our room total to 122.
For the first time ever, half of our rooms now have private spas, while the other half are regular hotel rooms. Through four generations, the whole family, all the way down to Gene's great-grandchildren, have contributed in the sweat, tears, and ideas that have made the Wildwood Inn what it is today.Photo:
