A Village Amenity Fee – VAF (aka the Rental Royalty fee) is applicable for all members who rent their properties to guests and collects income from these rentals.
BMVA members who work with rentals managers, e.g., Blue Mountain Resort or Lodges at Blue Mountain, each pay 1% of the gross rental revenues earned from the property to BMVA. This fee is charged to the paying guests, collected and remitted by the rental manager on behalf of the member to the BMVA.
BMVA members who are managing their rentals privately, through online rental portals such as AIRBNB, VRBO, etc., or independent managers, are responsible for collecting a 2% Village Amenity fee directly from guests and remitting the fees to the BMVA.
How do you explain this fee to your renting guests? Please see the description below, which is displayed at all front desks throughout the Resort and should be shared with private rental guests.
