We spent 4 nights at Christmas Mountain's Bluegreen resort last week. We'd never been to a truly family-oriented resort so this was a new experience. We enjoyed it. We had a 2 bdrm./2 bath cottage near the clubhouse so we were close to a nice sized pool and small hot tub there. Inside the clubhouse they held LOTS of activities from crafts to candy bingo. They had a pool table, air hockey, big screen TV, a number of arcade games, and a jukebox. There is a small lake within the resort for paddleboating, canoeing, and fishing. The little miniature golf course isn't like an adventure golf, but it's free and right there- our 7 year old enjoyed playing it. They have a nice casual restaurant onsite (Mulligan's), an indoor pool with some waterpark features (seemed aimed at young kids) at the registration building and a larger hot tub there as well. My husband played golf on the course there and said it was nice and scenic. The units looked freshly painted and like all Bluegreen resorts, it had all the things you needed in the kitchen. The unit was very clean and as comfortable as you would expect something labeled as a cottage to be (nothing elaborate, but comfortable). There isn't a washer/dryer in the unit, which is a bummer, but there were token operated ones at the clubhouse and a nearby laundry facility (they gave you all the free tokens you needed at check in). It was very quiet there so we slept well. They had wi-fi available for a fee. They had a movie night at the pool where everyone could either float around or sit on a lounge chair and watch a movie on a screen strung up behind the pool- our son enjoyed that. The clubhouse pool needs some flowers in pots to make it look cozier, but that's about the worst I could say. They had a campfire over by the ski hill on night where a guy brought his guitar and marshmellows to hold a sing-a-long and marshmellow roast. That was cute and the kids seemed to love it. We had a maintenance issue and they were there in 10 minutes and got it fixed (again, typical of a Bluegreen resort). The one bdrm. cottages were pretty close together and I don't think I would enjoy that experience, but the 2 bdrm./2 baths weren't so close. LOTS of different choices on units at this large resort. We were about 10 minutes from the Dells and all that craziness, so we could get there easily when we wanted to, but had a nice, quiet place to be at the rest of the time. There was a Wal-mart, Kohl's and Mc Donald's close by, as well as an outlet mall.
