ORLANDO, FLA. (November 12, 2015) — Orange Lake Resorts, a leader in the vacation ownership industry, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, revealed plans to brand a third resort from Orange Lake Resorts’ Silverleaf Resorts portfolio with the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® flag. The 96-unit Apple Mountain Resort in Clarkesville, Ga., is scheduled to be rebranded in late December, marking the company’s entry into the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. It will join a new Holiday Inn Club Vacations resort opening in Scottsdale, Ariz., adding a total of 995 villas to the portfolio by the end of 2015.
Apple Mountain Resort is a getaway property designed around outdoor activities for the whole family. The resort features horseback riding, mini golf and the on-site 18-hole Apple Mountain Golf Club and pro shop. Additionally, guests can enjoy a fully equipped activity center, movie theater, playground, and a seasonal outdoor pool and spa. Investments will be made for upgrades to public areas of the resort, as well as a multiyear villa renovation project.
“This continues to be an extraordinary year for Orange Lake Resorts and the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand,” said Thomas R. Nelson, President of Orange Lake Holdings, LLP. “Apple Mountain Resort represents the branding of the third resort from the Silverleaf acquisition this year, as we expand the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand footprint into four new markets and add nearly 1,000 villas by year end.”
Silverleaf Resorts, the Dallas-based vacation ownership company was acquired by parent company, Orange Lake Holdings LLP, in May 2015. The parent company operates two vacation ownership brands, Silverleaf Resorts and Holiday Inn Club Vacations®
