This was our first visit to Fairfield Bay. We were looking to get away for some peace and quiet for the week and we found it here. The resort is away from the big cities and out in the rural area of central Arkansas in the Ozarks. You definitely have to be going there to find it but is is worth finding if you are looking for mountains, trees a lake, golf, or just peace and quiet.
The resort had plenty of activities to choose from but we just did not choose to participate. We stayed in the Fairways condos in the Mountain Ranch area and we found the quiet we were looking for. The condo was huge and well maintained with nice appliances and plenty of towels even for the pool.
The pool was near by and we enjoyed 2 full days just relaxing poolside. We made a day trip to Branson one day, about a 3 hour drive. We visited Heber Springs one day and saw some neat shops on Main Street and we went to Mountain View one day and visited the Ozark Folk Center. That was a highlight of the week for sure. Don't miss that center if you like to see hand made crafts being made.
The resort is huge as it covers a lot of territory. It is miles from one area to another but there are many beautiful houses in the area and very nice golf courses as well. As for restaurants we can not speak as we did not try any of them. We had stocked our kitchen and ate "at home" rather than eat out.
After visiting many resorts over the past 10 years or so I would rank this one in the top 5 of all I have been to. It is what it is and does not try to be anything else. If a nice quiet rural setting is what you are looking for, look no further. We are anxious to visit in the fall and see the foliage when it is not so hot and dry. But this is a nice place.
