President’s Message


Dear Members,

Get ready for one of the most exciting summers at Tree Tops and Fairway Villas at the Fernwood Resort. We are now busy with preparing for the grand opening of Pocono TreeVentures our new ropes course and Blue Lightning our summer tubing amenities. Along with this, you will find our new and expanded Wintergreens Patio Grill with an outdoor tent for seating of up to approximately 240 people, the continued Villa improvement program, a new water feature at the Valley Station outdoor pool and road improvements throughout portions of the village. These improvements and the additional amenities will add tremendous value for our existing and new customers. It’s fun to watch all of these advancements take place and the pride it brings to our staff and members. I hope you visit us soon and join in the fun, there is plenty of it for the whole family and while you’re at it bring your friends.

I would like to thank all the owners who are referring new members to The Villas; it’s a nice endorsement of what we are doing. Referrals from existing owners are now our largest source of new members who join The Villas. The growth of our membership in the last few years is at the highest level in over a decade and it shows no sign of slowing especially with all of the new amenities being added.

So please come up and visit, we will be waiting and we would love to see the smiles of you and your family as you zip down the two racing zip lines or sliding down the new all season tubing lanes.

Lola Stanley-Sylvester,
Front Desk

There is nothing like a warm welcome when you check-in and Lola, with her vibrant smile and outgoing personality, is recognized with great comment card ratings year after year. Owners even give up their place in line just to catch up with her.

Lola is a native of the Bronx and has worked for The Villas at Tree Tops & Fairway at the front desk for the past 13 years. Her coworkers often refer to her as the “queen bee” for the guidance she gives to all members of her team.

Lola has nine children, eight of whom are adopted. She loves to cook and also likes to regularly participate in water aerobics at the Fairway Pool. Lola is also an RCI member and vacations in exotic places within the exchange network. Her three favorite memories are of Barbados for the gorgeous sand, the Bahamas for the stunning scenery, and The Villas at Tree Tops & Fairway for everything that is fun in the Pocono Mountains. She loves the people she encounters daily, especially our owners, who often offer her great new vacation ideas. Make sure to say hi to Lola when you next visit the resort.


Do you like to travel? Do you like to have fun in the sun? We do…we did…we will!

We have been Tree Tops/Fairway Villas owners for eighteen years and are very fortunate to be able to say that we’ve visited fifty states and eighteen countries. Alaska was our favorite state and Ireland was our favorite country. We have seen beautiful sunsets in Aruba, Mexico, Washington State and California. We have seen glaciers calving, wildlife in abundance, ancient ruins and historical sites. Also, we have met many fascinating people from diverse cultures. There is so much world to see and we consider ourselves fortunate to have had so many different opportunities.

Owner Travel Stories

This past year our RCI Point Owners have used their memberships to the fullest for many great vacations and short getaways.

One family enjoyed a 7 night Disney vacation at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Seaworld. After a great day at Disney World with their 2 children they went back to the resort for relaxation and enjoyed the resort’s lakeside setting, 3 pools and beautiful waterfall.

Another member enjoyed their honeymoon at El Dorado Seaside Suites in Mexico. They enjoyed couple massages on the beach, and spent their days touring the Mayan ruins and snorkeling.

One member took his 16-year-old grandson to Ocean City Maryland for some deep-sea fishing and stayed at the Pointe on the Bay Resort for 4 days and 3 nights.

For a long weekend getaway one member traveled to Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine and enjoyed 2 days of skiing at the Camden Snow Bowl.
For Spring break another member took their 16-year-old daughter and two of her friends to The Historic Powhatan Resort in Williamsburg, VA for a 3 night stay. They enjoyed Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg during the day and ghost tours at night.

So start planning your next vacation.
