Just completed a presentation at the Bluegreen at Shannondoah Crossing. Me and my wife bought the 2 night stay in exchange for Bass Pro Shops gift cards once you participated in the presentation.
The facility where we stayed at the Lodge was more like a old roadside motel, but at least the bed was comfortable and they had hot water, but very outdated. We were asked to forget the Lodge and imagine ourselves staying in a cabin or a yurt, both of which that we were shown seemed nice. Why not put us in one of those? They said that they were booked full for the weekend, but as we walked around the facility it was more like a ghost town.
All the extra activities at this resort are priced separate and would really cost for a family. This was both of our first experiences to participate in one of these sales pitches, and all was well until at the end when we were not planning on buying one of their Deeds. The sales manager that comes and throws the numbers out at you was trying hard to get us to commit to a deed. But , as we were told several times from the representative at Bass Pro to those at the preview center if the offer is not for you, we will just shake hands and leave as friends.
Not so easy as he is getting frustrated and asked me " don't you want the best for your family"? Me and my wife told them that we were just not interested, the plan may be good for someone that vacations alot but would not benefit me or my family.
We were getting really aggravated almost to the point of harassment and guess he could tell that, quickly shook our hands and walked off. This did get to be a high pressured sales event and we were mostly disappointed that Bass Pro would be associated with these folks.
