BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation (NYSE: BVH) (OTCQX: BVHBB) (“Bluegreen Vacations,” “Bluegreen,” or the “Company”), a vacation ownership company, announced today the groundbreaking for the Bluegreen Mill Springs Lodge Resort in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Expected to open in 2024, the new lodge-style resort is being planned to feature architecture, interior design and amenities inspired by the surrounding Smoky Mountains and to offer an elevated level of quality and finishes throughout the property. With a nod to the Arts and Crafts era, the lodge is expected to highlight native hardwoods, dormers, cultured stone facades, waterfalls, outdoor pools, fire pits and other elements reminiscent of the period. Additionally, 67 guest accommodations are planned to include three-bedroom presidential suites, two-bedroom units as well as studio-style rooms featuring upgraded cabinetry, kitchen appliances, decorative lighting and other amenities which offer owners and guests an ideal setting for comfort and relaxation.
“This region continues to be a popular destination among Bluegreen’s owners, and we are very excited to introduce them to this beautifully-designed resort,” said Dusty Tonkin, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of Bluegreen Vacations. “The planned design of the accommodations, along with the amenities such as the spa, are a direct response to the increasing expectations of our owners. We believe that once completed, Mill Springs Lodge will be added to the list of ‘must-visit’ resorts,” he added.
Mill Springs Lodge is among the three new developments being added to Bluegreen’s portfolio, which already includes 43 Club Resorts in iconic destinations across the United States. Bluegreen recently announced the acquisition of the Panama City Beach Resort and Spa in Panama City Beach, Florida, which has been renamed Bluegreen at Bayside Resort and Spa; as well as 46 units at the Streamside at Vail resort enclave in Vail, Colorado.
“Bluegreen continues to focus on providing our owners with opportunities to enjoy memorable vacations with their loved ones. This includes identifying the right opportunities to expand our footprint with new resorts so that more people can experience the power of vacation,” Mr. Tonkin concluded.
