President’s Message


Dear Tree Tops and Fairway Owners,

There are lots of great changes for us to tell you about in this edition of the Villa Voice. First off, you will notice all of the planned refurbishment and past accomplishments we have made to the property and villas outlined on page 1. I have to say the grounds in and around The Villas look better than ever. The golf course is in prime condition and receiving lots of play from the owners and exchange guests coming to stay with us.

We are launching the new referral website for the Owner Referral Rewards Program, the site allows you to transact online. This will make it easy to refer family and friends and at the same time receive great benefits for doing so. Just go to our website and check out all the benefits.

At the very end of last year we made a strategic decision to sell the hotel to a company that specializes in hotels and restaurants. We did this for several reasons with one of the main ones being that our core business is vacation ownership, and now we can focus all of our energy and resources to continue to expand and improve The Villas and our amenities. The decision has paid off. Our staff is really doing a great job with the transition and owners are seeing the positive results. It will allow us to do more upgrades at one time rather than spreading our staff out. Most importantly the new owners are investing a great deal of money and energy into the hotel which by all accounts owners are liking, especially the new barbecue restaurant.

Don’t forget to come and join us for some fun. That’s what vacation ownership is all about! Bring your family and friends and take some well-deserved time for rest and relaxation.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Camelback Mountain
Resort additions – Zip Flyer and Mountain Coaster

This Spring Camelback Mountain Resort unveiled a 3600’ foot Zip Flyer. Soar from the summit to the base of the mountain at speeds up to 60mph and get the scenic views like no other experience, as well as getting your heart pumping!

In addition to the 3600’ Zip Flyer, Camelback is also adding a 3200’ foot steel-track Mountain Coaster. This coaster is the only one of its kind in the Pocono Mountains. With the whipping turns, dips and swirls, riders may hit 60 mph. The Zip Flyer and Mountain Coaster will be open year-round!

What is Better than FREE?

When you sign up for The Villas eNewsletters and offers, you will receive eBlasts that offer everything from FREE tickets to nearby festivals and events to special Owner Bonus offers that provide savings off the already discounted villa rental rates. In recent months, we offered free tickets to Shawnee Mountain festivals, Bushkill Falls, the Mountain Laurel Performing Arts Center and on special packages that included tickets to Camelbeach, the Pocono Chicken Wing Off and midweek extended stays. But, if you don’t sign up, we can’t give you the special offers. Do it right now and be ready to respond when we reach out with winter tickets and spring events.

Fairway Fitness Center Gets A Makeover

At the end of September, the Fitness Center located at the Fairway Pool complex received the makeover treatment. “I have had this amenity on my radar for some time and I am delighted we have been able to get to it this fall” stated Resort General Manager, Greg Huffman. “We have installed a wider range of new equipment and added a new key-card access for greater control. Here are some of the new items: Stairmaster Pro Treadmill, Stairmaster Pro Rower, Stairmaster Pro Stair Climber, Stairmaster Pro Recumbent Bicycles, Stairmaster Pro Upright Bicycle, Stairmaster Pro Elliptical Trainer and Stairmaster Pro Gravitron Pull Up System. “I think our Fairway guests will find everything they need for a great work-out.”

Guests will now be required to use their villa key card to gain access to the Fitness Area and guests under 16 years of age will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Additional new fitness equipment has also been added to the larger fitness center located at the Fernwood Hotel, which is available for all resort guests.
