“I have been operating Historical Hotels for the past 38 years and have always had a need to have a company refinish our antiques and woodworking. The traditional refinishing companies you see in hotel trade publications are used to finishing Holiday Inn Express, Motel 6 and similar lodging properties’, “case goods” not antiques. We who own and operate Historical Hotels do not have “case goods” but rather antiques and fine furniture. Bob Stephens and Northern Lights Restoration is the only company I have been able to find that does fine woodworking and antique refinishing. Bob and his company have developed a technique that is unique, quite, without odor and works well on antiques and historical woodworking. If you have a Historical Hotel and have a substantial investment in antiques and woodworking’s you want Bob Stephens and Northern Lights Restoration to restore the same. We first tried Northern Lights Restoration on our original lobby furniture. That project was so successful we hired them back to do all the guest room antiques and wood working. We will be bringing them back to complete our hallway wainscotings, baseboards and door jams.

If you have an investment in fine furniture, antiques and woodworking it would be wise to talk to Bob Stephens on how he can help you protect that investment. Feel free to call me if you have any questions, 707 923-2124 Ex. 180.”
