Why Timeshare?

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo.—December 19, 2008 — With more than 5,000 resorts in 100 countries, the vacation possibilities with timeshare are endless. As defined by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), “A timeshare is best suited for people who take at least one week of vacation a year and who want more space and options than commonly offered by a hotel room. Families enjoy having both privacy and home-like common areas to enjoy vacationing together.”

The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 in Breckenridge is a timeshare resort in Breckenridge that offers its owners and guests spacious, luxury, ski-in/ski-out condominiums at affordable prices. Located on Peak 7 of the Breckenridge Ski Area and at the base of the Independence SuperChair, this new ski-in/ski-out resort will be home to 114 residences, Soothe Day Spa, Sevens restaurant, family game center and lobby piano bar featuring a 3-story moss-rock fireplace. The property will also include many amenities such as multiple indoor/outdoor pools, water features and hot tubs. Being situated halfway up Peak 7 and halfway down to town, owners and guests at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7 will have easy access to both mountain adventures and in-town activities.

Timeshare ownership comes in different forms including purchasing deeded real estate or buying points for a points-based system. Owners typically purchase ownerships in one week increments – or week-long points equivalents. “Fixed” ownership allows the same week to be reserved for the owner during each usage year. “Floating” ownership offers owners the option to book their vacation within a specified season rather than a particular week. The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 offers deeded real estate ownership in either fixed, floating or points options to accommodate each owner’s unique needs with the most flexibility possible.

One benefit of owning a timeshare is the exchange opportunities. The Grand Lodge on Peak 7 is affiliated with Interval International. With over 2,200 resorts in its network world-wide, Interval International is known for its high-quality resorts.

Timeshares may once have been associated with shady business practices or confusing products. However, now consumers enjoy a strong sense of confidence when purchasing a timeshare due to the work and legislation put forth by ARDA, the industry’s association. The industry is highly regulated both state-wide and federally and offers stringent consumer protections, such as those outlined in ARDA’s Code of Ethics. Consumers should be aware that the resale market is not as heavily regulated, and therefore may not offer the same consumer protections or benefits.

Owning a timeshare is an extremely smart and affordable choice for families who enjoy traveling at least one week per year and who enjoy variety. You own a piece of your resort - it’s your destination, your choice, your vacation. The Grand Lodge on Peak 7, which is scheduled to open in May of 2009, is currently offering preview tours to interested parties looking to own a vacation for life.
