Golden Bear Cottages Vacation Club ... Press Release...May 2013

Affordable vacations every year until 2018 for under $3,000 total

Vacation Club Rentals and Timeshare differences

(
Wikipedia encyclopedia)
'
Consumers unfamiliar with the concept of a vacation club rental may confuse it with the seemingly similar, but distinctly different, timeshare. A Vacation Club rental is a term in the travel industry meaning renting out a fully furnished cabin, cottage or home on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel. Vacation Club rentals are becoming increasingly popular because of the privacy and total vacation cost savings. A timeshare is a piece of real estate-often a condominium-that is jointly shared by multiple owners. While different types of timeshare ownerships exist, in general, each owner bears a portion of the responsibility, along with the right to a segment of time in which he or she is granted sole use of the property.

A Vacation Club rental is a fully furnished property, such as a cabin, condominium, cottage or family-style home. However, a true vacation rental is not for sale to the guest; rather, the property owner of the vacation rental merely allows the guest to rent the property for a predetermined length of time. For some guests, the benefits of vacation rentals offering more space (multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, separate living areas), more amenities (fully equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor patios with BBQ's, some with private hot tubs), and convenient locations (close to the lake, skiing/snowboarding) make it the right choice for vacationing. Vacation Club rentals also provide greater privacy than a hotel.

In North America, most cabins or cottages are used for weekend or vacation getaways by city dwellers. These cabins and cottages are generally located close to lakes in forested areas or the by the ocean. They are used as a place to spend holidays with friends and family; close to activities including  snow skiing and  snowboarding, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, waterskiing,  fishing,  hiking, and  sailing'.



 Golden Bear Cottages Vacation Club members will have these advantages: 1) choosing just the size cabin or cottage that fits your needs, 2) having a choice of yearly 5 day vacation club packages that are usable in most seasons with minimal blackout dates, 3) price and rate is guaranteed for 5 years, which may be extended, 4) the price and flexible payment plan based on low regular off-season published rates for 30 total days over a maximum of 5 years, but you may stay longer in any one year as long as you still have days left in your reserve and the dates are available, 5) club members receive a discount by joining the club, and will receive an additional 5 day bonus package vacation in Big Bear Lake. Plus,  Golden Bear Cottages Vacation Club members are entitled to receive discounts on many add-on boating and skiing/snowboarding seasonal offers available exclusively to returning guests... more to come as the program develops and other lodging partners are added. Golden Bear Cottages Resort resemble story-book cottages that are perfect for couples, and also for small, medium and large size families. These historic resort cabins at this AAA approved lodging property are easily identifiable as a group of free-standing rental cabins at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake. Golden Bear Cottages can easily be recognized as its own quaint mountain village!

Vacation in Big Bear Lake California

Most travelers look for bargains to go to far-away exotic

places around the world. If they really do travel to those

far away exotic places, they realize that the local residents

in those "exotic places" are eager to travel to far away

places too. Sometimes, that far-way place is in your

backyard.

What is exotic to one traveler may be common place to

another. It is all in our attitude, or in the case of the

Southern California mountains, our altitude. As families get

larger and our expenses expand to huge proportions, many

people decide that they just cannot afford any far away

exotic vacations! Today, with airfare 30 to 40% higher,

families are staying close to home.

Big Bear Lake is offering "fantastic getaways in the pristine

mountain ranges" right in the middle of our local mountains!

Oh well, I thought, if there are people from far away places

willing to travel to these mountain vacations in my backyard,

let me try to get a nice deal and go see for ourselves what

all the fuss was about! Maybe there is something up there

that we didn't know about.

And it was wonderful! And the best part was that we

accomplished it for less than 1/2 of the "fantastic bargain

getaways" that the websites were offering!


 

You will find these AAA approved cabin & cottage rentals as

cheap as local mountain hotels.


 

Now that's an amazing vacation! Our family and pet friendly cabin

had a full kitchen with all the amenities we needed, so we did not

have to eat out every day. That saved us over $100 per day.

Our cabin also had a BBQ and outdoor private patio area where

we had a daily cookout. This mountain resort had lots of free

outdoor activities as well as a heated pool and spa and free

family movies at the pool each night. The friendly people at

Golden Bear Cottages also gave us discount coupons for 25%

off boat rentals, stores and local family restaurants.

The economy and budget crisis continue to make the headlines.

The price of oil remains high and gas prices are punishing

people at the pump. These are the tips we found that made our

fantastic mountain vacation bargain right in our backyard;

for less than a tank of gas for the round-trip. For those

looking to make their summer vacation plans, many may be

wondering where are the cheap vacation packages, Big Bear is

the place. Summer officially begins in a little over 3

months. Now is generally the time to book your travel

in Big Bear Lake, California.

In lieu of the security deposit, we advise that your group purchase a damage insurance policy for a nominal fee (usually MUCH LESS than the security deposit would have been).

(7) A non-refundable one-time resort cleaning fee ($50 large cabins, or $75 for retreat cabins) will be charged to each cottage/cabin reservation. For more details, ask your reservations agent to explain the advantages of the damage insurance or request an explanation in writing.

Damage Protection / in lieu of Group Security Deposit 
Guests are responsible for any damage they may cause during their stay. We require the purchase of a non-refundable accidental rental damage insurance policy for groups.  This policy offers from $1,500 to 10,000 dollars of coverage for accidental damage to the vacation cabin or cottage during your stay depending on the policy coverage purchased.  Policy details and coverage are detailed separately and should be reviewed prior to purchase. This group damage insurance policy is available at a very nominal cost, and we believe is a better alternative to a security deposit.  

Please note: Liability is not limited to the policy coverage.  If extensive damage is caused by the guests or their invites to any part of the rental property exceeds the amount of the damage protection policy, guest  understands and agrees that they are responsible to pay the additional cost for replacement or repair of damaged items.  
 



Golden Bear Cottages Vacation Club Payment Plan

Big benefits. Small payments
Even if you don't have all the cash now, a flexible and affordable yearly vacation is well within your reach-just 10% down with our new payment plan.

Installment plan program:
Payment schedule:  10% at time of booking, and 10% of balance per month for 10 months.

The Payment Plan is available for those who wish to spread their payments out over time.  The Plan requires a 10% down payment, it also includes a $50 processing fee at time of purchase.  The remaining balance will be charged in ten additional equal installments for ten consecutive months (actual dates of payment processing may vary).  The same credit/debit card will be charged for all payments (keep this in mind when you choose your card - it must have an expiration date of one year from purchase date or later).  The Payment Plan is designed for credit/debit card purchasers.  But, you can make your down payment with cash or check and then pay the balance monthly with the credit card on file.  The entire purchase must be completed using the same credit/debit card originally processed.

There are NO REFUNDS on Vacation Clubs - even if the dates are never used. There are also NO REFUNDS on installment payments you have made if you choose to cancel your Payment Plan prior to completing your payments.
