Bretton Woods, NH – After operating the properties since 2009, Omni Hotels & Resorts announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Bretton Woods ski area and the Omni Mount Washington Hotel from CNL Lifestyle Properties, a real estate investment trust. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The purchase also includes the Bretton Woods cross-country ski center, the resort’s Mount Washington and Mount Pleasant golf courses, the Omni Bretton Arms Inn, the Lodge at Bretton Woods, and 500 acres for future expansion and development.
