Wilderness at Big Cedar

We are looking to spend the last week in August (22 - 29) at the Wilderness at Big Cedar. I was looking at red week and I noticed there are amost no summer rentals available (one or two for July).

Does anybody know why? Are summer rentals that hard to find for the resort or do I need to wait until 2020 before they come available?

Also, what is a decent rate for renting a 1 or 2 bedroom during that period.

Lastly, we want to fly to orlando on the 29th. Does anybody know what the closest airports that offer direct flights are?

I scanned RCI for this resort for YEARS! I finally got one for the last week in August (this year). We went and had a fantastic time! LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! I really do believe that summer rentals are just that hard to find. It is a massive resort, so maybe they just have that many owners that want to return every year? Or maybe they keep the "extras" out of the rental pool? I don't know, but we really want to go back again.

We exchanged thru RCI, so I can't even begin to give you a guess on how much a "decent rate" would be.

I guess I can't answer MOST of your questions, but I was able to give you a guess about the rental pool...:shrug:
