Chalet High Timeshare

March 29, 1987

In March of 1987, my parents bought a time share in Chalet High in the Bayse, Virginia. The place has since fallen into disrepair and apparently the previous owner wasn’t spending the owners money on upkeep of he units.

We spent several summers here in the late 1980’s but we mostly traded the week for another location.

Here is the original brochure.

One thing worth noting about timeshare, even after you die, you still have to keep paying the maintenance fees. They are very difficult to sell, usually you have to give them away. So never buy timeshare.
