My husband, my 3 year old daughter and I stayed at Cranberry resort for 3 nights in January 2013. The results: ruined plans, lost money and nervous breakdown. We came on Saturday and a room was freezing cold, heater was off. I took 5 hours to get comfortable in a room. I booked a Cranberry spa service for Sunday, but when I came to enjoy my facial, a door was closed; there was nobody in a spa. We booked Scandinavian spa (bath and massages) for 2 people for Monday and paid $280 ahead. Cranberry resort has a private day care, so we booked a babysitter to take care of our daughter while we are in a spa. When we brought our daughter on Monday to a day care, a day care was closed. So, we did not go to Scandinavian spa and lost money. I send e-mails to Cranberry resort and asked about compensation for the ruined vacation, they did not even respond.
Recommendations: do not book a Cranberry resort spa for Sundays; you will not get a service anyway. There is no professional babysitting service at a resort. If you book a service, be ready for big disappointments.
Also, Cranberry resort sells membership. We bought 2 nights at a resort with a promotion and had to attend an orientation meeting. We survived during 2 hours of brain washing and I would like to share my thoughts. For about 1.5 hours they will wash your brain showing nice pictures and talking about a point system. In the last 15 minutes you will be asked to pay $20000 for the opportunity to come to a resort for one week a year in the next 30 years. If you bring a calculator, you will find that an annual membership fee and an annual maintenance fee will cover your week at a resort. So, if you have extra $20000, donate it to a charity.
