Having read the recent reviews I wonder if we were at the same place. We were there on the 5th of July and had no complaints with the service either from the reception, bar or waitresses. It was busy being the 4th of July week and the barman was pushed, but very efficient and helpful. He had the knack, which I appreciate, of noting who is to be served next and ignoring would be queue jumpers.
At the evening meal our waitress was very helpful and efficient with no delays in food or drinks.
The resort itself is a little dated. It's TreeTops meets Butlins, but that's not to denigrate the place, far from it, it has "rustic American summer camp" charm and was an experience, not just as a resort, but of the US public on holiday. We enjoyed it as much for the location as the people watching.
By far the most outstanding attraction are the views...and what views!! From the balcony of our room we had uninterrupted views for MILES! All the way over the Shenandoah to the Blue Ridge Mountains which faded in serried rows of hazy blueness to infinity. The US has so much beautiful space! I think Americans must take it for granted, but even from the top of the Swiss Alps, I don't think I've ever experienced the distances I've seen in the US. Beautiful...More
