Byrd Campbell served as legal counsel for an ownership group (Fontana Ventures, LLC) which has acquired the rights to operate the iconic Fontana Village Resort (www.fontanavillage.com) located in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina.
“The TVA entrusted the incredible legacy of this great place to Fontana Ventures,” said Tucker Byrd, who led the negotiations. “What makes the resort really unique is its setting in its own legally incorporated town in North Carolina,” he added.
Fontana Ventures has big plans for the resort. According to Byrd, “Our client plans to invest heavily to enhance the guest experience by renovating the spectacular lodge and existing cabins, making a substantial investment to add cabins and treehouses, developing RV facilities, expanding the marina, and providing every feature for a ‘glamping’ experience, all while featuring the great role the resort played in American history. The development group’s mission statement says it all: Celebrate the Past . . . Imagine the Future.”
