3 Timeshare Resorts for Affordable Family Fall Getaways – The Secret is to Rent

As RedWeek’s September Newsletter mentions, the cold hard truth of today is that most families cannot afford to vacation like they used to. Job uncertainty, rising gas prices, and airline baggage fees are all barriers to getting away.

Timeshare rental availability is on the rise and travelers are reaping the benefits. By taking advantage of RedWeek’s “by-owner rentals,” families can stay at amazing resorts at bargain rates.

Rent a timeshare close by to save on those gas prices. Or, if you are going to fly, you can save on the airline luggage fees by packing light –  most timeshares have a washer and dryer included!

Featured below are three of the great deals for timeshare travel that are available right now.

1. Marriott’s BeachPlace Towers, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. (See top photo) Situated on the “Gold Coast” of Florida, just 23 miles north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” for its amazing intricate canal system. From its prime oceanfront location, this resort commands spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Marriott’s BeachPlace Towers timeshare rentals start at just $128/night; Resales begin at $2,495.

One RedWeek reviewer said: We could not have been happier with our choice of staying here. The location directly across the street from the beach was very convenient, and our room had the most beautiful Intracoastal view of multi-million-dollar mansions and watching the yachts go by.

2. Wyndham La Belle Maison, New Orleans, LA. Just two blocks from the French Quarter, and within easy walking distance of popular Bourbon Street, the 100-year-old Franklin Press building has been transformed into a vibrant urban vacation experience.

Wyndham La Belle Maison timeshare rentals start at $125/night.

One RedWeek reviewer said: This is my favorite place to stay in New Orleans, and I have stayed here a number of times. I never rent a car, just take the airport shuttle to La Belle Maison, then walk everywhere I want to go or take one of New Orleans’ fun streetcars.

3. Big Cedar Wilderness Club, Ridgedale, MO. Nestled in the midst of the Ozark Mountains, this resort is the perfect Fall getaway. The warm Autumn days are just right for the many outdoor activities that include hiking, biking, boating, fishing, and golf. Head to nearby Branson for glittering nightlife.

Timeshare Spotlight: Big Cedar Wilderness Club

One of the magical things about summer as a kid is going to summer camp. The swimming, the boating, the rustic log cabins, starry nights, hiking through the “wilderness.” What if you could have all of that and a timeshare rental to boot?

The Big Cedar Wilderness Club is a wilderness experience at a luxury resort. Nestled in the Ozark Mountains of Ridgedale, MO, it’s close to the exciting entertainment and shopping of Branson, but tucked away enough (by ten miles) to be surrounded by the peace and quiet of nature.

There is boating, swimming, and fishing right outside your door on Table Rock Lake, where there is a full-service marina. Or hit the links on the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Or tour Dogwood Canyon Nature Park by hiking, biking, jeep, or horseback.

Timeshare rentals come in all shapes and sizes, including lodges, cozy cottages, and “rustic” log cabins, include a fireplace and a hot tub, and some have views of Table Rock Lake (see photo below).

Reviewers rave about Big Cedar Wilderness Club:

“Loved it! The room was great, the beds were incredible (couldn’t get them in my car), the view beautiful! Highly recommend it.”

“I’ve stayed in a lot of condos/timeshares and this is the BEST ONE I’ve ever stayed in. It’s like being in a rustic lodge and the units are clean. My husband and I got to watch the sunset over the lake from the hot tub while the kids played in the pool. We’re going back in August!”

“Big Cedar is the epitome of an Ozark getaway! No where in the Ozarks will you find a resort of this luxury. The attention to detail can be seen from the moment you drive onto the resort property right down to the warm homemade cookie placed on your pillow each night. The staff is among the friendliest I have encountered. If you have the opportunity to visit, grab it while you can!”

“This is a fabulous resort. We have been going to Big Cedar Lodge for years and when they started the Wilderness Club we jumped at the chance and bought right away. Johnny Morris of Bass Pro is the developer, and, just as at Big Cedar Lodge, the attention to detail makes this place special. The log cabins have hardwood floors, stained glass windows, floor to ceiling river rock fireplaces, jacuzzi tub, large deck with gas grill. There is so much to do that in the 6+ years we have been going here, we have never once gone into Branson because we don’t want to leave the resort. If you get a chance to go here take it – you’ll be glad you did!”

Timeshare rentals at Big Cedar Wilderness Club start at just $57/night.
