Silverleaf has been providing quality family vacations since 1989. Our original seven resorts were located in Texas and Missouri. After we moved from a privately held company to a public company in 1997, we added resorts in additional states.

In 1998 we added Oak 'N Spruce Resort in Massachusetts. In 1999, we opened Apple Mountain Resort in Georgia and in 2000, we added Seaside Resort in Texas. Most recently, in 2005 we added Orlando Breeze in Orlando, Florida to the Silverleaf family. In May 2011, Silverleaf Resorts was acquired by Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. and as a result, became a private company.

In 2015, Silverleaf Resorts was purchased by Orange Lake Holdings, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand. The privately owned vacation ownership company continues to operate the two brands separately.

We continue to look for opportunities to grow and to provide better services to our members with each new year including new resort locations, additional services and unique new products.
