Massanutten resort is a big timeshare facility. General public can access the amenities (skiing, tubing, zip line, water park, golf, go karts, pools, horseback riding, etc, etc) for a fee also. Previous poster said that there is not much shopping close by which is true for right now, but the resort has plans to add an outlet center in the next few years. I can't say if purchasing the actual timeshare is worth while or not, but it is a good place for a family vacation.

It's not. They sell those timeshares for $10K+, depending on the size, season and type of unit. Check ebay, they often offered for sale by owners for $1. So they are basically worthless.

The killer part of owning timeshares is the yearly maintenance fees. There are so many owners at Massanutten that don't go every year anymore after owning for many years, that you can often rent for less than the maintenance fee. So there is no point in buying a unit. You just saddle yourself with an ongoing obligation that is difficult to sell and impossible to sell if you buy an off-season unit.
