Grand Heritage was founded in 1989 by John W. Cullen to focus on historic properties that suffered from lack of branding and boutique management expertise.

Building on the flagship model of the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park Colorado, Grand Heritage is focused on developing and operating one-of-a-kind large scale resort developments in or near national parks.

From health and wellness and adventure travel, to custom corporate and group events we provide best-in-class authentic experiences in some of the world’s most inspiring settings.

As developers and operators of lifestyle destinations, Grand Heritage also provides year-round arts, music and entertainment programming.  From hosting Grammy-award winning artist concert series, film festivals, pop-up restaurants featuring rotating celebrity chefs and community events, our guests enjoy a constantly reinvented resort campus with each visit.

An “owner-operator" philosophy dictates that each property and its management be allowed to grow and evolve into its own sustaining business. Management and employees are highly incentivized and subscribe to a heavily enforced set of core values that emphasize exceptional performance, entrepreneurial spirit, individual accountability, and passionate delivery of a unique guest experience.

Our de-centralized, non-traditional approach – which values local character and recognizes the individuality and nuance of each property – enables us to create significant operating and marketing efficiencies for each property.
