My husband and I stayed in a two bedroom unit (first floor) at Woodstone Meadows. Our accommodations consisted of two bedrooms, eat in kitchen, two full bathrooms, living room and deck. The master bedroom had a large closet, desk area (good for laptop), pillow top king size bed, dresser, two night stands and TV. Second bedroom consisted of two twin beds with a night stand between the beds, small closet, hutch with TV and DVD player. Master bathroom had two entrances (hallway and bedroom), Jacuzzi, large shower stall, toilet in a separate area and double sink. Living room had a queen size sofa bed, love seat, end table, small cocktail table, dresser with a large flat screen TV and DVD player, ceiling fan and gas fireplace. Kitchen was full size and well equipped. Deck was located off of the living room. There was a stackable washer and dryer outside our front door which had to be shared with the upstairs unit.
Pros of the unit: The bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. Unit was nicely decorated, clean and very spacious. Kitchen had plenty of storage for food items. Location of the unit was good and had a nice view from our deck.
Cons of the unit: The wallpaper in the master bathroom was starting to peel in some areas. The shower door would stick at times and it was a little challenging to open it. There were black marks on the carpet in the second bedroom and living room. Tub in the second bathroom drained very slowly. The sofa and love seat were uncomfortable to sit in. Due to the table in the kitchen area, it was awkward for two people to maneuver around since it was a tight squeeze. I guess the unit was remodeled at some point and the bed in the master bedroom was changed from a queen to a king. The night stands were turned sideways to fit between the bed and wall. Due to that you could barely open the drawer to put anything in. Noise from the units surrounding us. Nothing done intentionally but you could hear the people walking around upstairs as well as flushing the toilet in the middle of the night. The family next to us had children and you could hear them running around and playing. Sharing the washer and dryer with the upstairs unit was complicated at times.
Resort: The resort is huge and has an abundance of activities for the entire family. The view of the mountains surrounding us was amazing. We didn't bother purchasing the activity card since it was quite expensive. You really have to calculate all the fees to see if it's worth it. Some of the activities are pricey. You will need a car to get around. Property was well maintained. The front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and accommodating. Walking to the Woodstone Recreation Center wasn’t that bad but there are no sidewalks. You either walk on the street or on the dirt path by the pond. People tended to speed on this road and had no consideration for those walking or for the ducks that crossed the street several times a day. I didn’t notice a speed limit sign or a duck crossing sign.
Timeshare Sales Team: As indicated on other reviews, the timeshare sales team is very pushy. After you check in you have to go to another counter to pick up your parking pass. This is where the staff tries to talk you into a timeshare presentation, etc. Luckily the lady I spoke with didn’t press me as I kindly informed her that we were not interested. However, they did call us several times throughout the week so we ended up disconnecting the phone.
My husband and I enjoyed the area. We spent a few days touring various caverns as well as driving along Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park). We saw many deer and the scenery was phenomenal. One afternoon we drove around the resort and was checking out the other timeshares, ski area, pool, skate park, mini golf, water park, walking trails, golf course, stables, etc. We were impressed with all the amenities available.
The weather was perfect and only had one day where we had showers in the afternoon.
Since the weather was beautiful we spent a few hours by the pool one day. The life guards enforce the pool rules and glad that they did since some children were acting inappropriately. Luckily, we arrived prior to lunch and had no problem locating a chair. By mid-afternoon the pool area became very crowded and there were no chairs left.
Harrisonburg is approximately twenty minutes from the resort with various restaurants, grocery stores, liquor store and many stores to shop in.
Overall, we had a great vacation and truly enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to going back in the future and explore more of the area.
