BUSHKILL, PA (March 6, 2014) — RCI, the leading global vacation ownership exchange company with thousands of affiliate properties throughout the world, has once again awarded the prestigious RCI President’s Club Award to the sales team at The Villas at Tree Tops and Fairway® for being one of its top performing affiliates. Andy Worthington, President and CEO of Bushkill Group Inc., owner of The Villas, comments, “It is rewarding to once again be recognized by RCI as one of their top performing affiliates having completed one of our most successful years.” RCI’s coveted President’s Club Award is presented annually to properties around the world and recognizes The Villas for their achievements in growing the business and for the company’s shared commitment with RCI for the transformation of the vacation experience.
Worthington continues, “We are one of the leading independent vacation ownership properties in the Mid-Atlantic region and have just added three new amenities. People are committed to taking vacations with their families and our Resort, which is located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, offers them easy drive accessibility and the opportunity to try on-site and nearby attractions.”
The Villas at Tree Tops and Fairway are located on 400-acres adjacent to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The four season property offers one to four bedroom fully-appointed villas with amenities that include Pocono TreeVentures, an aerial adventure ropes course, Pocono Zip Racer, dual racing 1,000 ft zip lines, Blue Lightning all season tubing, an 18 hole par 71 golf course, White Lightning Snowtubing with a Tiny Tot play area, year-round horseback riding, mini golf, indoor and outdoor pools, live entertainment, tennis, bumper boats, the Valley Station arcade and family fun center, canoeing on the Delaware River and nearby attractions that feature hiking at Bushkill Falls, skiing at Camelback and Shawnee Mountain ski areas, outlet shopping at The Crossings Premium Outlets and gaming at Mt. Airy Casino.
Gordon Gurnik, President of RCI, comments on The Villas award, “Ongoing success in the timeshare industry requires focus, flexibility and the ability to both adapt and innovate. RCI prides itself on supporting our affiliated resorts as they, the industry and their owners evolve. As an organization, we wanted an official and appropriate way to recognize the resorts and developers whose distinguished achievements set new standards for excellence.”
The Villas at Tree Tops and Fairway have been operating in the Pocono Mountains since 1921, originally as Fernwood Resort. The property is located in Bushkill, PA just 70 miles from the George Washington Bridge and minutes from the Delaware Water Gap. Vacation ownership plans are sold using the RCI Points program which allows owners to vacation either at The Villas or at resorts throughout the world.
Worthington concludes, “Our points programs allow owners maximum flexibility and usage. As the pace of life speeds up, the ability to take extended vacations diminishes. Owners can now divide their points into increments and vacation experiences based on their time and availability. That change has made vacation ownership even more attractive. We appreciate the recognition from RCI, and believe this award pays tribute to both our sales team and our ongoing commitment to providing exceptional vacation experiences.”
