Homewood High & Dry Marina Joins Forces with Homewood Mountain Resort and West Shore Café to Create a Year-Round Peak to Shore Lifestyle
HOMEWOOD, Calif. (May 23rd 2016) –
Today, JMA Ventures announced the acquisition of Homewood High & Dry Marina by a JMA Ventures investment affiliate and Somera Capital Management, a move that will further strengthen Homewood Resort’s position as the only true Lake Tahoe year-round destination for snow sports, cat skiing, lakefront dining and lodging, weddings, and now boating and other water activities.
As part of the long-term plan to create a world-class destination on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, the Marina will round-out the existing summer and winter offerings of Homewood Mountain Resort and West Shore Café. The three properties will benefit from coordinated management, marketing, and exciting new offerings, while long-time Marina owner David Topol will provide continuity and remain responsible for day-to-day management as the Marina Director of Operations. “For almost 40 years, our customers have been the core of Homewood Marina,” said Mr. Topol. “We’re excited that this partnership will allow us to continue to enhance the level of service we are able to offer to our customers, as well as to incorporate our business into the remarkable development vision for the soon to be transformed Homewood Mountain Resort.”
Homewood Mountain Resort Master Plan is scheduled to break ground in the summer of 2017. Remaining consistent with the scale and character of Homewood, the development is expected to
embrace the heritage of the West Shore and bring it to life through the addition of a 5-star hotel, high-end residences, and a neighborhood village. “As Homewood evolves into a four-season destination, partnering with the Marina is a natural fit,” said Kevin Mitchell, General Manager of Homewood Mountain Resort. “The integration of the properties will truly embody what Homewood is known for, which is the Peak to Shore experience, from the top of Ellis Peak to the shore of Lake Tahoe.”
As a result of the partnership, the Marina will offer new services and amenities this summer season including gourmet grab’n’go meals and provisions for boaters produced by the adjacent West Shore Cafe, improved parking experience and availability, online buoy & dry storage rentals by the day, and a state of the art mobile website, where customers and guests can conveniently access services and information.
