Probably just maintenance fees or a special assessment.

SUMMIT AT MASSANUTTEN RESORT MODEL REVIEW

We toured the new "Summit Model" located up on Litten Lane and were able to get a few pictures of a refurbished upper/lower unit. They have done a nice job and the units have a much more modern airy feel. (However, we will miss the old country feeling)

From the moment you open the entrance door. You can see and feel the difference in the hallway with it new brown carpet. The units have all new furniture & carpet but the older dark kitchen cabinets and black appliances have not been replaced.

Really like the new flooring in kitchen & dining area but don`t care for the strange looking carpeting in the living room and bedrooms.

A huge (65") television now sits over top of the living room fireplace along with a new stone wall.

Gone are the old fashion heavy bedspreads!

The huge master bathroom still features the large soaking tub.mirrors have been removed and walls painted.

The upper level porch will now have an aluminum table & four chairs. The lower level deck will now have an aluminum table and four chairs plus your own private propane gas Bar-B-Q grill.

They is a stackable washer and dryer located in the lower hallway..

I personally don`t care for the new decor. I am sure lots of timeshares owners and exchangers will simply love the new look of the remodeled units.

Thanks for the information. I thought the unit we had was fine as it was. Needed new kitchen flooring and carpet, but all else was up to date. Maybe one of these days we'll head back down that way!

It would be nice if they made the bed in the master bedroom a king. I think it was a full. Of course, I havent stayed there in 11 or 12 years. I much prefer woodstone.

Massanutten is great but I have to believe their gold crown status has something to do with the 130,000 paid rci transactions they do every year.

We have only visited Massanutten once and that was over 15 years ago. The units were nice and their rooms were very large. The best things at the resort during that time was The Le Club with it Olympic size indoor pool, large outdoor pool, basketball, golf & tennis courses onsite and their other family amenities.

I looked at Massanutten Resort as a four stars resort for the Northern VA, Washington DC, and Maryland travelers for vacations usages IMHO.

beware if you exchange in you pay an additional "resort fee" now. something on the $10-20.00 per NIGHT. Be sure to ask about a "resort fee" or check the additional info section.

here is from the rci website for summit units

Resort Fees:

Service fee is 10.95 to 76.65 U.S. dollars. Cash or Credit is accepted.

I’ve notice this on a lot of timeshare exchanges, do you think it’s really going to housekeeping?
Or are they doing this to cover some expenses that some owner aren’t paying maintenance fees?

Now that its time to pay your annual fees and

We prefer way up on Litten Lane

Q: Anyone know which Summit units,

*Anyone stayed in any of the 88 beautifully*
remodeled/renovated Summit Timeshares
What was the unit number and how did you
like the feel of the new design and updates?

Did they or are they going to replace the
washers and dryers in the lower level hall?

Woodstone (Luxury, RCI Points) at Massanutten Resort
I am a Woodstone points owner at Massanutten and checking into Summit next Friday to use a bargain "extra" week I purchased during an RCI sale last week. For the heck of it, I called Massanutten and requested an assignment if possible in one of the recently refurbished units. The lady on the phone politely told me that that do not take unit requests other than handicap accessibility related ones, and that I should discuss my request at the desk during check-in. Is that standard operation procedure for Massanutten, or did I get a bad luck of the draw on who I was talking to?

A few in SC, VA and FL, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, NY, UT, ME, WI, and TN plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
That sounds about right. When booking your owner unit you request a specific unit (for both summit and woodstone) and they have so many units that go through rci they may not want to deal with the hundreds or thousands a request per week.

Hello I also own at this resort and was told the exact same thing a few months ago. However I called back and got a gentleman who was willing to speak to his supervisor for me. His supervisor allowed him to put a note in the account to put us in an updated unit. So at checkin I kindly asked the young lady if it was an updated unit as she was getting the keys ready and it was. So I’d try to get someone else and nudge them a bit.

Wound up checking to what is a nice 2019 refurbished unit tonight. I’m not that picky and didn’t complain with the set up before the refurb, but I’m not thinking the gold crown is a bit of a stretch as I did last year.

I checked in on Saturday, to the Summit. We were in the 400's. Per the front desk staff Saturday check ins are the units that are not refurbished. My unit was smaller than other Summit units I have stayed in before and very dated. Also there were items missing. I did call the front desk they were able to replace the items. I noticed they did not have anyone at the security gate except after 10 on one night when I came home.
They had a good deal on snowboarding $40 for 5 hours including equipment on Monday evening. Looks to be going on for a few more weeks.
