Jarrad Fluekiger, owner of Hillcrest Motel and Rutting Ridge Outfitters, purchased the Reidts Motel, a family-run business that entertained guests for over 60 years in Alma, Wisconsin. Jarrad has kept this quaint hotel going by completing several needed renovations. The updates add some of their own spice and give guests a new experience.
