About Us

A Legacy of Hospitality

Welk Resorts had humble beginnings, starting off in 1964 as a single motel and a nine-hole golf course overseen by founder and television host extraordinaire Lawrence Welk. An enthusiastic man with a passion for entertaining and spreading joy to all, Mr. Welk understood the importance of quality time with loved ones through unique experiences. More than fifty years later, Welk Resorts has grown to several stunning locations in gorgeous regions across the continent. Under the leadership of Mr. Welk’s grandson, CEO Jon Fredricks, we continue to grow as a family-operated company dedicated to helping travelers vacation better through shared experiences and memories.

Activate Passion

Be Inspired Where You Work

At Welk Resorts, we create quality experiences our guests will enjoy. This drive to offer the best extends to our employees as well—the heart of our company. By creating a positive and enjoyable work environment for our team, we provide the tools, support, and purpose that inspire our employees. Our team is committed to our mission and we’re dedicated to providing career and personal growth opportunities to help our employees achieve their goals.

Join Our Team

"We have an impressive team that knows the outcome, commits to it, and supports each other to get there."

Jon Fredricks, President & CEO
Connecting People. Creating Fun.

Team Welk operates in three US time zones, as well as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! We work every day to increase collaboration, seek unique perspectives, and maintain working relationships that often span decades (Welk’s third employee is still here after more than 55 years!). And, we never miss an opportunity to inject fun into what we do!

Delivering Unparalleled Experiences

As a privately held, family-operated organization, we know the value of the word “experience." At Welk Resorts, our team members embrace our culture of service and hospitality, and often create their own vacation memories as they gain our guests’ point of view. Some team members purchase Welk’s Vacation Ownership products, and others take advantage of generous team member villa rental discounts available at all of our properties.

Freedom to Explore, Your Way

Welk Resorts is a dynamic, evolving organization. We’ve grown from five resort locations to more than 20 locations due to new construction, key acquisitions, and alliance partnerships. This growth allows our team members to build a long and rewarding career with Welk Resorts, as well as enjoy our beautiful properties during their own leisure time!
