    Hi I am a first time timeshare owner and today I nervously signed on the dotted line to ‘own’ Woodstone Luxury (week 1) at Massanutten. I am not entirely interested in coming to Massanutten again, but am owning this mostly for the points which I would like to use at other locations through...

    HELP please - how to transfer a TS?

    I have to admit it was very stupid of me to get into a TS contract without fully understanding what I was getting myself into.
