    The fall Woodstone owner's newsletter is now posted online and attached to this post.

    It announces they are making changes in the resort fee for 2020 by switching from charging "per side" to "$4.25 per bedroom per night." I assume that is for owners and non-owner RCI exchanges will pay a higher rate.

    For 2019 the fee for owners has been $7.95 per side (usually 2BR) per night, which was discounted from the "average fee for an RCI guest or rental guest of $13.45 per side per night."

    Maintenance fees are up 5% for luxury units, 5.5% for deluxe units, and 5% for casa units.

    Thanks for posting. I don't like that it went up. It does make it slightly more appealing to book the 1 BR Woodstone casa unit if you don't need the extra space. Just as an FYI the Mountainside Villas have no nightly or weekly resort fees and sleep up to 8 in the 2BR loft unit.

    The renovations in the Woodstone units are making excellent progress so far. We currently have 200 unit sides (100 full units) completed. Guest feedback on the completed units has been immensely positive and we look forward to the project’s completion by the end of 2022.

    Is there any downside to using Mountainside as far as access to resort amenities go @tschwa2? Can you use the Woodstone indoor and outdoor pools if you stay in the Mountainside units as well as participate in the same activities? I assume you can use the pools on on the Mountain.

    I go to Massanutten for at least three long weekends a year. I have used my RCI points for one of those trips, but more commonly I buy a week RCI Last Call (or discounted Extra) vacation and use the part of the week I need. Now that I have an RCI Weeks account, it looks like paying the internal VV $156 exchange fee and last minute discounted TPU rates may be the way to go. Thus far, I have limited myself to Woodstone and Summit (my first non TS trip there I stayed in the hotel).

    One things that has been a pleasant surprise to me about the $156 internal VV weeks exchange fee is that it also applies to Mountainside. I had naively thought RCI points was always the best RCI had to offer. If I had to go with one, it would be RCI Points ... but I see now that there are times it works to your advantage to have a weeks account too.

    You would have the same access to amenities as Woodstone and Summit. Downsides to Mountainside is you arer are more likely to have more stairs to get to your unit and in terms of decor its more like a mountain cabin that you keep a little more rustic in style. It is also fixed week, fixed unit so you are more likely to get the specific unit deposited and can't request or change to a different unit.

    Thanks, they need money for building new timeshares by s curve up Massanutten drive...I personally think they have a bad financial situation going on, with reneging on contributing to the Homeowners association to the tune of $400,000 now this...something stinks...
