We’re taking things to a new level to ensure Hearthside Grove is the leading luxury motorcoach resort in the nation. Stay tuned for more details about Ciderpress Village, a new waterfront development on club property. We’re planning to offer 10 premier lots with luxurious modern villas.

Stop Condo 1 Board from Renaming Hearthside Grove
Condo 1 Association board members Melissa Williams, Mark Adams, Ken Sharkey, George Hahn and Ken Gluckman launched a damaging bombshell in their April 17, 2021 email sent to Condo 1 owners. They plan to change the name of Hearthside Grove. And they want to do it now.
Hearthside Grove developers FOMCO made it clear in their October 13, 2020 letter they emailed to owners. If the association stopped using the trademarked name Hearthside Grove for their sales and rental program, the lawsuit would not have been filed. Read the letter from Kirk Rose.
The quick fix to the trademark litigation does not come from changing the name of our community. The solution is for the Condo 1 Association board to change the name of the entity it uses to market sales and rentals. Stop the board members from changing the name of our resort.
Save Hearthside Grove. The clock is ticking. Please inform the Condo 1 board how they can end the trademark infringement lawsuit right away. Information submitted using the following form is stored for analysis and reporting. Messages are sent to Condo 1 Association board members. Every field on this form is required. Please complete all information to send this extremely important message right now to instruct the board.
Ciderpress Club Not Renewing Refuse Agreement
Ciderpress Club went above and beyond in 2020. We offered an agreement that solved dumpster problems for Condo 1 Association owners. We want to let everyone know that Ciderpress Club decided not to renew the dumpster agreement with Condo 1 Association in 2021 based in part on behavior and abuse from many Condo 1 owners who are not club members. Our decision was further reinforced by the egregious and unacceptable legal actions initiated by the Condo 1 Association board against Hearthside Grove developers FOMCO, Condo 2 Association and Ciderpress Club. Condo 1 board members facing a recall are Melissa Williams, Mark Adams, Ken Sharkey, George Hahn and Ken Gluckman.
The official written notice to cancel the Refuse Agreement was sent to the board and all individual board members April 19, 2021 at 2:30 PM EST. The dumpster situation is truly unfortunate, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience it will cause all Condo 1 owners. Condo 2 Association owners will not be affected, and other arrangements have been made. You can express your concerns to the Condo 1 Association board of directors. Dumpsters will remain available for everyone until July 1, 2021. Then all dumpsters will be removed permanently from Ciderpress Club property.
The Condo 1 Association board of directors is solely responsible. They must make other arrangements to service the needs of Condo 1 owners. Every owner in Condo 1 Association is encouraged to stop the damage to Hearthside Grove caused by the uniquely reckless board of directors. There are two board seats in Condo 1 Association held by Melissa Williams and Mark Adams that are soon coming up for election July 2021. Efforts are currently underway to hold a special meeting intended to recall Condo 1 Association board members before the July 2021 election.
There are other outstanding issues to be addressed by the Condo 1 Association board. That includes the unauthorized use of our electrical and mechanical equipment on Ciderpress Club property without an agreement, multiple admitted instances of trespassing, as well as felony theft that occurred in October 2020. Board members were put on notice but failed to resolve these important matters. Corrective action is planned.
Discover Everything New in 2021 at Ciderpress Club
We made so many enhancements to Ciderpress Club last year, and that includes a new RFID access control system at all major entry points. We waited until the end of the season in 2020 to enable access control, and it works great. Now that’s in place, we are issuing special key fobs to all members for secure access to the clubhouse. We even have wristbands that are available in addition to fobs. Ciderpress Club members will be issued access control key fobs and wristbands beginning June 5, 2021. Stop by the clubhouse to get yours right away. We are ordering new locks with keys for all beverage lockers. Complimentary beverage lockers will be available and issued in June 2021. We are about to start adding a long list of scheduled events for 2021 to the events calendar, including big parties, complimentary breakfasts, pizza nights and more.

We are adding a 20×40 foot custom-built pavilion that’s being constructed near the back patio and completed in May 2021.
We started getting everything ready in 2020 for our beautiful new pavilion at the same time the 1/4 acre pond and outdoor wood-burning fire pit were completed. New trees and landscaping behind the clubhouse really brought things to life.
We ordered all new outdoor furniture for the pavilion and patio. Everything will be completely ready and waiting when you get to Hearthside Grove this summer.
Outdoor Fire Pit
We added an incredible wood-burning recessed fire pit along the hillside and completed it with Adirondack chairs.
Get your marshmallows and hot dogs ready. And don’t forget to bring your drinks. Meet your friends every Saturday night at the club for campfire night.
We now have an easy-to-use Bluetooth sound system at the fire pit for members to enjoy music of their choice. There are even new ice chests ready for drinks.
Deep Water Pond
We added a beautiful 1/4 acre pond with a lighted fountain behind the clubhouse last summer and stocked it with bass and bluegill. We’re even adding more big fish this year. Sit back and relax on the beach area to enjoy the spectacular view.
The lighted fountain looks incredible at night and really adds to the experience. Members can bring their family and try to catch one of the big ones hiding down deep in the fish habitat that was added.
Ciderpress Club has everything for you to create great memories this summer.
Experience Unforgettable Summers at Ciderpress Club
There will be live music outdoors every Friday night, generously sponsored by Newell Coach. Join your friends at the pavilion and on our spacious patio.
We scheduled three dinner parties this summer starting July 4 weekend, then early August, and Labor Day weekend.
Special Club Events
Coach manufacturers such as Prevost and Newell Coach plus converters such as Featherlite Coaches, Liberty Coach, Millennium Luxury Coaches and others come to Hearthside Grove every summer. They host big parties at Ciderpress Club for everyone in the resort to enjoy.
Events for summer 2021 are now being scheduled. See our events calendar.
Club Business Center
The business center in the clubhouse has complimentary wifi, and it will soon have a 27-inch iMac and color laser printer.
We repainted even more inside the club at the end of 2020, including the business center and entryway to Ciderpress Club.
We’re also getting new furniture for the business center in June 2021 so it’s even better for club members. It will be fully equipped for anything you need to do, including online video conferences.
