Fairmont Heritage Place, the private residence club from Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, has assumed management of two private residence clubs formerly operated by Storied Places. The two clubs are at Nature's Door, Whistler and Inspiration, Miramar Beach in Sandestin, Florida.
The Fairmont Heritage Place at Nature's Door, Whistler features 22 well-appointed and fully furnished vacation homes, providing ski-in, ski-out access next to the Dave Murray Downhill Olympic Ski run. Reflecting the rustic charm of the Pacific Northwest, these luxury homes range in size from three to four-bedrooms and offer mountain inspired amenities like private outdoor hot tubs, customary wood-burning fireplaces, and wrap-around decks providing unparalleled views of Whistler Blackcomb. Original artwork by local British Columbian artisans adorn each home and all feature private media centers equipped with large flat panel televisions and DVD players.
The first Fairmont Heritage Place residence club opened in September 2004 in Acapulco, and is now sold out. Fairmont Heritage Place also manages the Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge in Telluride, Colorado and San Francisco's Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, which officially opened in August 2008. Sales are currently underway for Fairmont Heritage Place, Kingdom of Sheba, on the Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah island in Dubai, and Fairmont Heritage Place, Zimbali, South Africa. Future development is being planned at select Fairmont resort locations including Vail, Colorado; Rock Ki, Dominican Republic; Oman; and Palm Desert, California.
