We stayed in Mountain Creek Lodge, and we knew the rooms in Mountain Creek would have a refrigerator and a microwave. After bringing our luggage down the tram, we made an extra trip to bring to contents of a cooler from the car. We made simple breakfasts (oatmeal with pre-cooked sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese) and ate them on the balcony with our morning coffee. We had cold picnic lunches outside, and brought down charcoal and burgers to grill one night. (We also had some wonderful dinners at the Mountain Creek Lodge.)
The balcony on our room had a beautiful view of river, and there were rarely more than a handful of people in view. I stayed on the balcony on T and Th afternoons while the tram was being serviced, and it was like having the park to myself. I loved the shady trail along the river.
I wanted a vacation to just sit and read, and I got that. My in-laws tried out the RC car track, played miniature golf, went on hikes and went to naturalist talks. The afternoon it rained, we played cards together, and after dinner we would play shuffleboard or skip rocks. For most of the week, we were unplugged from our tablets and phones, though we could visit the public rooms by the restaurant for a wifi fix in an emergency.
