We’ve noticed a shift towards families who are looking for that starter vacation home. They’re looking for affordability, but they don’t want to sacrifice quality where it counts, in construction.
Cloyne, Ontario (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Frontenac Shores, an 1867 Confederation Log & Timber Frame fractional development on the shores of Lake Mississagagon in Eastern Ontario, has announced two new models that bring more options to the table for homebuyers.
“We’ve noticed a shift towards families who are looking for that starter vacation home,” says Frontenac Shores representative Pat Storms. “They’re looking for affordability, but they don’t want to sacrifice quality where it counts, in construction.”
In addition to existing Confederation models that feature cathedral ceilings and high-end spa bathrooms, Frontenac Shores is now offering a two-storey, three-bedroom log home with 1,500 square feet of living space and its first-ever semi-detached model featuring two bedrooms and 1,000 square feet on each side. Special pre-construction pricing starts at $49,900 and $69,900 respectively per fractional share, making it easier than ever to own a four-season recreational log home.
“We’ve added a lower price point to our line-up,” says Storms, explaining that the new models feature the same quality log home construction but with smaller footprints that enable the lower pricing as well as a lower annual maintenance fee.
Owners of each side of the semi-detached model, for example, will have separate controls for added efficiency for their own radiant floor heating and air conditioning. As an added appeal to large families or close friends who are looking to vacation in the same spot, the two sides of the semi are connected by a hotel-style adjoining door.
“The best part is, purchasers don’t have to buy into a lesser quality resort to find affordability,” notes Storms. “These are still the same high-quality Confederation log homes, with the same furniture and finishes. We’ve simply removed a few upgraded features and decreased the price without affecting the quality,” she says.
With eight cottages already constructed, Frontenac Shores is in its third phase of development. Each share in a log home cottage entitles the owner to five weeks per year, including one fixed summer week, three rotating seasonal weeks and one floating week. If a particular week doesn’t suit, homeowners can exchange among themselves, rent to others or make an external exchange through Interval International, a worldwide exchange organization representing vacation destinations in 75 countries.
“When vacationers purchase a fractional log home cottage at Frontenac Shores, they become part of a mature owners’ forum that can show them the ropes,” adds Storms.
For winter enthusiasts, Frontenac Shores offers cross country skiing, snowmobiling, skating and snowshoeing, as well as a newly constructed 10-acre hiking trail through the nearby woods.
