Florida Group Buys David Walley's in Carson Valley

MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A Florida-based timeshare company has purchased David Walley's Hot Springs Resort & Spa in the northern Nevada's Carson Valley.

Jared Meyers, president and CEO of Celebrity Resorts, says the purchase will allow the company to expand its presence in the western United States.

David Walley's was originally built in 1862 by David and Harriet Walley, who saw opportunity in the curative powers of the hot water. Notable guests have included Mark Twain, presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Teddy Roosevelt, Clark Gable and Carol Lombard.

In 1998, Illinois-based Quintus Resorts purchased Walley's and undertook major expansions, including a restaurant and timeshare condos.
