New PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn & Residences Will Replace Iconic Squaw Valley Inn
Squaw Valley, Calif. (September 26, 2017) – The PlumpJack Group, a leading hospitality management company that creates unique lifestyle experiences, is pleased to announce a multi-brand strategic partnership to redevelop the iconic Squaw Valley Inn into the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn & Residences, set to be completed in December 2019. The team, comprised of Meriwether Co., CCY Architects, Level Four Advisors, VITA, HDSF, and The PlumpJack Group, will create one of Tahoe’s most exciting all-season destination resorts and residences at the base of the historic Squaw Valley Mountain.
“We’ve assembled our dream team and are ready to embark on creating Tahoe’s most distinctive resort and residences,” said Hilary Newsom, president and partner of The PlumpJack Group. “We’re building on our rich history with Squaw Valley and the legacy of the resort and infusing the new development with our signature PlumpJack hospitality.”
The project will replace the existing Squaw Valley Inn with a new 60-room inn and 34 exclusive slope-side residences. Located at the base of the mountain and just steps from The Village at Squaw Valley, PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn & Residences will offer one of the most coveted locations in the Tahoe region.
Award-winning CCY Architects of Aspen, Colorado has re-imagined the property with a forward-thinking design that reflects the warmth and charm of the existing inn. The aesthetic is decidedly “alpine luxe,” approachable, and friendly, yet filled with PlumpJack’s signature high-touch amenities and services. The residences will offer exclusive access and fringe benefits to buyers, including The PlumpJack Group’s portfolio of world-class wineries, luxury hotels, and innovative restaurants and bars, as well as the services available at the adjacent inn, including an on-site restaurant and bar, pool, spa, fitness center, and ski valet.
The PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn & Residences will be available for advance purchase starting this winter. For more information about PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn & Residences or to join the VIP interest list for the latest sales and construction news, please visit www.LivePlumpJackSquaw.com.
