Wonderful time spent in a smaller mountain resort (just over 30 units) where you feel like you have your own cabin in the woods. Spacious, well laid out condo. Not fancy, but just right for a family vacation. Loved the air conditioning! Three decks to enjoy the outdoor beauty. The newly remodeled clubhouse is filled with activities - indoor pool/hot...

The accomodations are rustic, but that is the charm of a mountain villa in the middle of tall trees and many natural resources to explore. The staff of the resort should be rated "A #1". There was no question or... More

Had an excellent time at this resort. Arrived on Friday (3 July, 2014) and were greeted with a free barbeque from 2-4pm. Food was great. About the accommodations: We stayed at the Sierra building in the more secluded part of the property, where the backyard/patio is about 15-20 feet above the top floor of our unit. The unit itself has... More

The staff was helpful, friendly and so nice. The condo we stayed in was well stocked and had a beautiful view of the creek, we saw a family of raccoons from the balcony (momma with 4 babies) and having a washer/dryer in the unit was very helpful. So much to do so close to the resort we went to Big... More
