Holiday Inn Club Vacations Goes Live in Brownsville, VT.


Holiday Inn Club Vacations today announced that a ski-in, ski-out resort at the foot of Vermont’s Ascutney Mountain is now part of the timeshare brand’s portfolio. Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Ascutney Mountain Resort joins the flagship location, Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort in Orlando, Fla., and two other Holiday Inn Club Vacations resorts in Lake Geneva, Wis., and Panama City, Fla. Travelers can rent vacation villas at all four resorts at

The addition of Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Ascutney Mountain Resort follows the recent announcement that the timeshare brand will be adding two more resorts in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and Myrtle Beach, S.C., to its portfolio in April of this year.

“We’re pleased to offer our customers a memorable brand experience at the only ski-in, ski-out snow destination in the Holiday Inn U.S. portfolio,” said Christian Hempell, vice president, Holiday Inn Club Vacations. “We’re excited to include Ascutney Mountain Resort as the fourth Holiday Inn Club Vacations property as part of our alliance with Orange Lake, with our fifth and sixth resorts joining the brand in April.”

Holiday Inn Club Vacations was announced in September 2008 as a strategic alliance between IHG, the world’s largest hotel company, and Orange Lake Resorts, a leader within the timeshare industry with more than 25 years of proven success. This alliance is unique in that it allows IHG to enter the timeshare industry, purely through an exclusive licensing and marketing agreement with no capital investment. Orange Lake will continue to own and operate these resorts as a privately held company.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Ascutney Mountain Resort, the only ski resort in the Holiday Inn U.S. portfolio, offers a host of amenities for timeshare owners and guests, including a fitness center and spa, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, arcade, convenience store and a full service restaurant and café. Recreational activities at the resort include downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, cross-country skiing and an on-site outfitter offering guided and self-guided outdoor adventures year-round with equipment and gear rentals.

Don Harrill, President and CEO of Orange Lake Resorts, said, “This resort at the base of Ascutney Mountain is a year-round destination for every member of the family. It’s been a popular drive-to destination for thousands of our club members living in the New England area.”

Through IHG’s guest loyalty program, Priority Club® Rewards, guests renting villas will earn Priority Club points during their stays at Holiday Inn Club Vacations, which they can redeem for free nights at IHG properties or exchange for merchandise and special experiences. This resort will also welcome members of the newly formed Holiday Inn ClubTM exchange program, which allows members to exchange their weeks at any Holiday Inn Club Vacations resort for hotel nights at IHG’s more than 4,150 hotels worldwide. Holiday Inn Club members will also have access to Resort Condominium International’s (RCI) network of more than 4,000 resorts.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations will continue to seek opportunities to expand in top North American destination locations, adding more vacation experiences, features and benefits. Orange Lake also plans to build a flagship Holiday Inn Resort hotel at the Orlando resort and has the potential to develop up to 2,500 more timeshare villas at this location.
