Adrift Hotel

Craft3 provided Adrift Hotel with a loan to install a solar hot water heating system, high efficiency gas boiler and a rainwater catchment system. Additional funds were also used for site improvements and to consolidate existing debt.
Brady and Tiffany Turner opened the Adrift Hotel in 2011. What makes the Adrift Hotel different from other coastal retreats is the Turner’s adoption of eco-friendly practices in their hotel and restaurant.

Adrift Hotel utilizes reclaimed materials and natural biodegradable cleaners. The hotel restaurant, Pickled Fish, sources locally grown and organic food for its menu, recycles and composts.

The next step for Brady and Tiffany was to figure out a way to harvest natural energy and water for the hotel. They decided on solar panels for hot water generation and rainwater catchment for laundry facilities. These steps have Adrift Hotel far exceeding industry practices in its environmental stewardship.
