Kinsgmill Resort is premier vacation, conference and golf resort which located in James City County, Virginia. It is located on a portion of the Kingsmill Plantation first established in the late 17th century. The original plantation structures and their successors have long been in ruins. Founded beginning in the 1970s by Anheuser-Busch as part of related developments near Colonial Williamsburg, in 2010, Kingsmill Resort, which sits within a large residential planned community of the same name, was slated to become a key piece of the entertainment and hospitality system operated by Xanterra Parks and Resorts, one of many enterprises owned by Denver-based billionaire Philip Anschutz. Anschutz bought Xanterra in 2008 after it enjoyed a long heritage as a Fred Harvey hospitality company dating to 1876.
With facilities overlooking the historic James River a few miles east of Jamestown, the world-renowned Kingsmill Resort has 425 rooms, five restaurants, 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2) of conference space, a spa and fitness center, marina, and 15-court tennis center. Three championship golf courses and an executive nine-hole course surround the resort and are nestled within a large planned community (management of which is not part of the Kingsmill Resort). The resort has hosted a total of 29 professional golf tournaments from 1981 until 2009, notably among them LPGA and PGA Tour events. The resort has also been a perennial favorite for political conferences, such as national governors conferences and congressional caucuses.
The Kingsmill Resort is seen by local civic leaders as a key attraction to one of the world’s most popular destination regions. The area also features the three main sites of the Historic Triangle of Colonial Virginia which are linked by the Colonial Parkway (Jamestown, Colonial Williamsburg, and Yorktown), as well as the Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA theme parks, joined by dozens of smaller attractions, hotels, time-sharing developments, restaurants, retirement complexes, and other venues.
