At Guest Services, quality recreation and leisure pursuits are seen not simply as a means of “killing time,” but rather as an important and necessary part of a lifestyle leading to healthy and productive individuals and ultimately a healthier society. We have always believed in providing our guests with an abundance of choices that include involvement in positive recreation, leisure, and fitness opportunities.

“…I am so incredibly happy with the level of expertise and talent for teaching… I am extremely happy to have teachers who challenge me and help improve my game. I can’t say enough about how great they are [at East Potomac Tennis Center]… Kudos to you for convincing them to leave Florida and come to D.C.”
– Anna Weinstein

 
So, whether it’s kayaking on the Potomac River, lacing up the skates to glide across the ice rinks in the Nation’s Capital, taking a houseboat vacation on Lake Roosevelt in Washington state, enjoying a trail ride on horseback in Washington, D.C.’s Rock Creek Park, or serving up an ace on the tennis court in Orlando, we know you’ll enjoy the high-quality recreation and leisure experiences we provide at properties all across the country.

Ski


From early morning grooming to après-ski, we have over 20 years of professional winter recreation experience. Operating a ski resort requires a solid understanding of snowmaking and maintenance procedures, but the focus on safety, environmental impact, and promotion are essential for the growth of the sport. Guest Services executes the highest quality mountain activities and creates an experience to build skier loyalty.

Golf


Reaching beyond the green, we have successfully managed championship golf courses including one of the top courses in West Virginia. Golf course management requires extensive experience and meticulous attention; Guest Services provides both, and an abundance of respect for the skill and knowledge required to maintain an exquisite course.

Fishing


Fishing is a sport of love and patience, and Guest Services manages treasured fishing spots on both the East and West coasts. Our success is due in large part to our team members who consider their jobs to be labors of love. Their knowledge of the ebb and flow of the fishing season is matched only by their dedication to the shores and waters where they spend their days.
