The Moose Lake Motel just a few days after the fire that left it a total loss in March.

The Moose Lake Motel, a long time business on Arrowhead Lane, will be demolished before the end of the year. The motel has been sitting empty and blocked off since March of this year when a fire left it a total loss.

At the Moose Lake City Council meeting, City Administrator Tim Peterson reported that samples were being taken at the building in preparation of it being demolished.

Scott Williams, the owner of the motel, said in a recent phone interview that finalizing the matter with the insurance company had delayed anything being done with the building.

Williams said there are not any plans to rebuild a motel. Options for what will happen with the property are still being considered, but the winter months stall any action for the time being. Williams hopes to have a plan by spring of next year.
