We purchased a Deeded package in 1998 and were very pleased with the resort for the first 3-4 yrs. Then came the promises of renovation and rising maintenance fees. In 2011 we were called in for a meeting about upgrading and investing in RCI. We took the offer to be paid up for life and only $100 yearly fee. Great right? Also at that time we were told again the resort was going to add more cottages but instead they built more timeshare units.
Well to make a long story short we were also called in for the MEETING. We were told in so many words that they wanted to turn the resort into an associaton a with this this comes additional cost and fees to the tune of a few thousand a year. And since our pakage was deeded and carried over to our children later that they would be responsible for the fees or face court charges and liens if not paid.
We also were told that we could reliquish our deed back to the resort for $4000.00 and pay off the remainder of the RCI package which was also a lifetime deal. And this was only being offered as a one time deal. Well we decided to take this offer as we have had enough of the scams associated with this resort.
The man they hired to do all the dirty work for them is real insistant about as he called it educating the owners/members. He will listen to all your complaints but in the long run he's just another deaf ear. I wish I had checked them out before we bought into this place back then. I just hope that other people will find this useful in making their decision to stay or go.
If this resort was managed properly from the start they wouldn't have had to resort to scare tactics to pay their debts which they said were compounding by the day. Good luck to all others in your dealings with Erie Islands. And remember if you really want to visit there again it's open to the public with out FEES.
