Sales are Underway at Wyndham Vacation Ownership's New Resort in the Pocono Mountains

ORLANDO, Fla. (June 13, 2008) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership has commenced sales at the company’s first new development at Shawnee Village in the Pocono Mountains. Customers can now purchase deeded interests to the 41-unit Wyndham Vacation Resorts Shawnee Village which will be affiliated with the company’s FairShare Plus by Wyndham points-based vacation ownership exchange program. It is anticipated the resort will begin welcoming guests later this year.

“The Pocono Mountains has long been a popular vacation destination known for its beautiful scenery and year-round activities, and we are thrilled to have our sales teams introduce this new resort to our current and potential owners,” said Jeff Myers, executive vice president of sales & marketing for Wyndham Vacation Ownership. “We are excited to expand our presence and complement our existing operations with additional vacation ownership options from which to select.”


With Wyndham’s points-based exchange program, owners can not only enjoy this exciting new resort, but utilize their points at more than 65 resorts nationwide and receive unique travel benefits such as cruises, hotel stays and guided trips.


Wyndham Vacation Resorts Shawnee Village will be comprised of a complex of ten, two-story buildings complete with shingle-style architectural design reflective of the area. The resort’s two-bedroom standard units and four-bedroom Presidential units will feature such amenities as a full kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace and whirlpool tubs. Guests can also enjoy the property’s mini-golf course, indoor and outdoor pool.


Wyndham Vacation Resorts Shawnee Village is the company’s first new resort in Shawnee Village complementing its existing 539 units gained in its 2005 acquisition of Shawnee Development, Inc. The resorts obtained in that acquisition have remained fixed-week resorts with approximately 24,000 owners, respectively.


Offering a wealth of year-round activities and picturesque vistas in the Pocono Mountains, Wyndham Vacation Resorts Shawnee Village is just a short distance from the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
