Our family of 4 including a 5 year old and 2 year old spent a week at this resort from July 13th to the 20th. We have stayed at several other RCI resorts including many that are silver crown and found that this resort was in no way a sliver crown. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit. We found that though visibly clean the unit needed painting, new fixtures, new appliances a new TV, and badly, badly needed new carpet. The unit was very dark and not inviting upon entry.
The activites were quite limited as there were days that no activities were even offered. The pool was often diry with pine needles and bugs. The gunite pool needs ++ repairs as you can scrap yourself easily because it is so rough. The rest of the grounds are nice and well kept. You can rent movies which is nice of just $3.00.
The location of this resort is perfect. You are in the lake region, but just south of the White Mountains. There is lots to do for families. We visited the Whale Tale Waterpark (Can't wait to go back), Polar Caves, Weir's Beach, Mount Washington and Tanger Outlets. There is no shortage of things for families to do.
Overall, I feel that we would never go back to this resort as New Hampshire has many more that offer great value. It is not the worst place to stay but has lots of room for improvement.
