I was very disappointed with the condo unit at this resort. The floorplan was very odd - we were in the 1 bdrm unit. You walk in and the living area is very small. You then walk down a flight of stairs to the kitchen and bedroom. It was not designed for a family to stay together. The furniture is very dated (80's decor) and shabby. The bed, pillows and sheets were very tired. I think the stove was the original from when the condo was built and smoked heavily when used. The unit did have a stackable washer/dryer that came in handy.
This is a good resort for the kids to learn to ski/snowboard. There is only 1 lift so it is okay for beginners. I would not come to this resort if you are an advanced skiier looking for challenging blue or black diamond runs.
The rec center was good for the kids. They have a pool table (.75 cents/game) and a couple ping pong tables that entertained the kids for hours. The put put golf and ping pong tables are free. They have a nice size tot lot and basketball courts across the street from the rec center. They do have a couple computers in the rec center to use and it is WIFI if you bring your own laptop.
There is an Ingles grocery store a few miles away if you plan to cook or store up on food.
Bucks in Cashiers is a nice coffee house. We did visit Highlands and enjoyed the Main street as well as Dillsboro to see the Old Square. The highlight of the trip was the Biltmore esteate in Asheville. It took almost 2 hours to get to Asheville driving through all the winding roads and mountain towns. Next time we will stay in Asheville as there is a lot to see and do there.
We would not consider staying at this resort again until it is completely updated.
