The one bedroom was spacious and well furnished and appliances were good. We had snow starting when we arrived and it was snowing a week later when we left. We had good warm weather the middle of the week. Most of the nearby business were closed for the season. We still enjoyed our stay. We made day trips to Boone... More

Beware of the timeshare trap. I got a reduced rate in return for participating in a timeshare presentation from E tour. The presenter was the most unprofessional person I have ever met. Dressed like a bum and smacking gum. We complained and asked how much it would cost if we skipped out on the the presentation. We were told they... More

We visited this Festiva resort for a week in October, through our Global Discovery membership. While the property was okay, it isn’t quite up to snuff with some other resorts we’ve visited through Global. (Sedona Summit, Greensprings Resort in Williamsburg, White Oak Cabins in Gatlinburg, and Marina Village, Cape Coral.) The staff members were friendly and helpful. Check-in was quick... More

This is our first trip to Banner Elk and selected blue ridge festiva due to the cost and amenities . We have a very nice bedroom , living room with fireplace , full kitchen , dining room, washer and dryer,. The tub was a jacuzzi with shower in it. That was the only draw back. I have a bad back...

There was plenty to do right on the property for free. We stayed in a 1 Bedroom. We had to move from the beautiful 3rd floor condo in building 10H..to the bottom level 24G due to no elevator. It was not as nice but it was still ok.

Resort had a lot of nice amenities for families; putt putt golf, small lake with paddle boats, tennis, badminton, board games, swimming pool etc., all within an area easy to get around. Units were comfortable (we had 2 bedroom/2 bath) and it was comfortable and reasonably well equipped. Kitchen had bare necessities but ok. Good quality and plenty of towels!!

Blue Ridge Village units are very nice -- much better than staying in a hotel. The facility has a variety of units ranging from 1 BR to 3 BR. The units are well furnished, clean, and comfortable. The facility has several activities to entertain adults and children. There is a small lake fed by multiple streams, fishing is allowed, paddleboats,... More

Was a little worried after reading reviews but our stay couldn't have been better. No problems with check in. Very polite and fast. Room was updated. Very comfortable beds and leather furniture. The place wasn't crowded so we had no neighbors so we didn't experience the noise problems. Central to everything. Only received 2 calls from sales dept to attend... More

We had a family reunion and had 2 condo's side by side. The 3 bedroom condo had a king, a queen, 2 twins and a pull-out queen. The king bedroom has a master bath, but that's the only bathroom upstairs so the queen bedroom either has to share or go downstairs. The 2 bedroom condo had a king, 2 twins,... More

My parents have been owners here for over 20 years; we visit with them annually. We love it so much that we just purchased our own week. The only thing we are not looking forward to is the regular hard-sell sales pitches that owners endure regularly. I am a mountain person, and knowing I can spend a week in July... More
