We stayed at the condo's at Woodstone at Massanutten. We stayed for 7 days due to someone giving us the time to go through their time share. I have to admit, I was surprised at how nice our room was and the amount of things to do.On thing to beware of is that when they as you to use your card for incidentals for your room, only if you want to use, they will tell you there is no charge on it..But they will put a $300.00 hold on it without telling you, and then put it back if you do not use it for any room charges. My advice would not be to give them your card for incidentals...
We decided to do the Activity Cards which did save a little money of the activities. There are a ton of things to do each day, but you will still pay a discounted priced for some of the activities. Some are free, but there still are fees that you will pay based off of what you want to do. We made more money back in doing the Time share presentation. They will offer you an array of deals that suite your needs, to get you to do the tour. My advise is to do the tour on a rainy day if you have one during you stay. It will take 2 to 3 hrs. On our day, we luck up and got a great salesman and crew that took us around. I know they use all kind of tactics to get you to buy, but we did enjoy our tour of the whole resort. Based on the research and knowing we wanted to eventually get a timeshare anyway, we decided to go with a deal that worked for us. There is a difference is the Woodstone Condo's and the hotels at Massenutten, so don't get it confused. I am seeing that the rating change off of where you stay at the resort. This can be rather expensive if you don't plan you stay. My advise would be to download the activities you want to do, call the concierge desk to chat about your options before you go, and know each day what you at least are planning to do, and adjust where you need to. The water park is very nice with a huge Arcade, restaurants and some other nice things. It is much larger than Great Wolf Lodge with the exception of the Tornado water slide that most of the GWLodges have.
Over all, I am looking forward to going back and have some fun time with my family at this resort. Just make sure you plan things out before you go, in knowing your budget. I am know an new owner here and I think it was a good investment. :)
