Resort to join the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand in early 2014
WILLIAMSBURG, VA (October 11, 2013) — To help kick-off their progress, Henderson, Inc. held a groundbreaking ceremony on October 9 to mark the beginning of the expansion for the new Colonial Crossings Resort. This resort was recently acquired by timeshare resort developer Orange Lake Resorts, who owns and operates ten Holiday Inn Club Vacations® resorts, with plans to add Colonial Crossings as their 11th branded location in early 2014.
Owners Orange Lake Resorts have recently become a part of our growing tourism industry and are excited to offer family-friendly vacation resort option to tourists available for nightly rentals or timeshare ownership. The resort’s general manager Bill Murphy, York County EDA Director Jim Noel, York County Board of Supervisors Chairman Walt Zaremba and Henderson, Inc.
