I am very upset. I booked a Blue Green vacation when approached by a salesperson at the Bass Pro Shop in Auburn Hills, Mi. They told me I could do it for $59 and then get two $25 gift cards when I got to the resort of choice. Because we cant afford to fly anywhere I rushed home and booked Boyne - Avalanche Bay for Dec 22 & 23 2008 knowing that hotels book up fast, we booked this the weekend of Fathers Day 08, in June.
In mid Nov. I got a package confirming our travel plans, 2 nights, indoor water park, etc. This whole trip would have really only cost us $9 since we were getting the 2 gift cards. We were so excited, they said we would have to go through a 90 min time share presentation and that was it.
So on Dec 1, I got a call around 8:30 PM stating that they pulled their Bluegreen company out of that hotel and that we can no longer visit there. We could use our trip to go to Orlando, Vegas or the Winsc. Dells. All in which we would have to fly, as we live in Michigan! Plus my parents like 1 hr. from Boyne, so we were going to do 2 nights there and then head to my parents house for Christmas.
Now our plans and our mini vac. our ruined. We were all excited about it, especially our 4 year old. We have had a HORRIBLE year, and this was the 1 thing we were looking forward to, a little pampering at a CHEAP hotel with the states largest indoor waterpark, we cant afford to do these things with our son, so we were happy to be able to do something like this for him. It was actually a FATHERS DAY gift for my husband, it killed me to have to tell him that we cant go now. I am having surgery at the end of the weak, and my husband is getting laid off on Dec 11, this would have been a GREAT relaxation for us, and we have been telling everyone that we are going, now we look like SMUCKS. We have not had any vacations this year, except 2 nights camping, 1 that we slept in the car, because it was raining. So gee thanks Blue Green, for NOTHING.
