Kingsmill SignXanterra, the owner of Kingsmill Resort, has announced in an email to Club at Kingsmill members it intends to list the resort for sale.

The sale will not affect any services and amenities at the club, according to the email from Wayne Nooe, the resort’s general manager and vice president of sports and club operations.

“… [T]he purchaser would acquire title to the Resort subject to the terms and conditions of the existing Membership Plan, the related Rules and Regulations, and that Membership Agreement between you and Xanterra then in effect,” Nooe wrote.

A date for when the resort will go on the market nor a reason for the sale were included in the email.

The resort did not return a call from WYDaily requesting comment.

Xanterra has owned the resort since 2010, when it purchased it from Busch Properties. The sale price of that deal was not disclosed by either company.

During its ownership of the resort, Xanterra restructured access to the resort so that only club members and resort guests could use its amenities. It also invested $4 million in upgrades to the resort, including a $1 million addition to its spa.

The resort is one of Xanterra’s only properties not contained in a national park. The company is the largest concessioner in the country’s national parks, managing resorts, lodges and gift shops at parks throughout the nation.

The resort and its accompanying spa includes 422 rooms, six restaurants, a conference center, a spa and fitness center, marina and tennis center. It also has three golf courses.
