Ownership Details | The Balsams Resort


The renaissance now underway to revive The Balsams is marked by the 100-year anniversary of the Hampshire House and our introduction of the Century Club. The rebirth of The Balsams will be one that celebrates a storied past while offering a refreshing take on the resort experience – from modern amenities to world class meals with locally sourced ingredients. Our unique resort campus design allows you to ditch the car and spend more time greeting the morning sun with lakeshore yoga, exploring 11,000 acres of pristine wilderness, or just melting away your stress at The Balsams Nordic Baths.

Within the Dix House and Hampshire House there will be a variety of fully furnished residences available for ownership. The purchase is for a divided interest (100 or 58 days of use per year) in a specific condominium residence. Each interest comes with a deed and title and can be resold by the owner at any time. The 100 days equates to a minimum of five summer weeks, five winter weeks, two spring weeks and two fall weeks. Great flexibility for owners has been built into the program with the option to swap weeks or add weeks. Our prices range from $99,900 for a one-bedroom residence, up to $675,500 for a three-bedroom suite, and are based on floor, view, configuration and several other factors.

As more residences are built in the coming years, 100% of the then current market value of your Century Club residence may be applied to future real estate offerings. These offerings may include slope-side, fairway, and lakeside homes, among others.

For owners that elect not to use their residence the full 100 or 58 days each year, we have created a Carrying Cost Reduction Program. When you enroll 100-day ownership in the program for 50 days, and keep 50 for yourself, the resort will pay your Homeowner Association (HOA) fees for the year. When you enroll your residence in the program for 80 days, and keep 20 for yourself, the resort will pay all your carrying costs for the year – including HOA fees, taxes, and membership dues. This way you will have the option to eliminate all the annual carrying costs.
