“Beautiful, but lots of driving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

Beautiful resort -- one of the nicest I've stayed at through RCI. The lake is gorgeous with a large hottub and pool that have a great view of the surrounding mountains. Our two-bedroom had a gas fireplace and was roomy and comfortable. The main problem is the resort is over an hour north of the northernmost part of Napa (Calistoga), and Sonoma. There is quite a bit of mountain driving to get to the main wine areas. Even so, I might stay at this resort again because it was so nice. If you're driving in from San Fran, just be sure to stop at wineries on the way up. The area is pretty rural, not many restaurants or stores nearby. There is a casino.
The people for the most part were very nice. There was one desk clerk who was somewhat unfriendly.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the lake

I was apprehensive due to the reviews. When we arrived, I shared what I had read in the reviews. The manager was very responsive and assured me that the room was clean etc. We entered and the room was very clean. The only down side was the size of the "studio". The Murphy bed was small for two people. You couldn't watch TV from it. The service staff were very responsive with items needed and friendly. The desk help new some about the things we wanted to get to, but not overly knowledgeable about what a tourist would want to know, such as many of the restaurants are closed on Sunday. Over all a good experience.

We were skeptical on our arrival after reading the negative reviews on this property! But we have learned in the past that worldmark resorts always hold a certain standard. Sure, this place is older and in some peoples mind, in need of upgrades....but it holds quite a bit of old charm and history.

The staff have been nothing but kind and helpful.....its true that the water takes a while to heat up.....but we are thrilled with our stay....we even called to extend our stay an extra 2 days. Our kids loved the heated pool and spent hours there -- even in december!!

Don't be scared.....its a beautiful property, we are glad we didn't listen to the negative reviews!

Room Tip: Grab your groceries before you get here! Not too much around.....

We stayed in "B" lower unit. The check-in staff were terrible, didn't offer any information unless you specifically asked. For the week we stayed we had nothing but lukewarm water. Cool showers (maybe in the summer months this would be okay - but not in November). Also our unit did not have a dishwasher so we were washing dishes in lukewarm water also. This is not in the least sanitary!. We also had to run the water approximately 5 minutes just to get lukewarm water in our unit. For a State conserving on water - this was ridiculous.
The view from our unit was very nice. They have a fishing dock on the property which is very nice also.
Had a murphy bed which was fine, but the pillows were terrible!
I wore white socks in the unit and the bottom of my socls were black. So miuch for the cleanliness of our unit.
We also towed a boat from out of State. You need to have your boat inspected before you can launch in the lake. The property is not designed for bringing a boat. We were here in the off season - so parking was not an issue. You need to remove your boat from your vehicle. The areas to turn your vehicle/with boat are very tight. Could be impossible when the resort is full during the summer months. Surrounding area is pretty run down. Lots of old trailers.
Property needs rennovations badly. At least the unit we stayed in does.

This place is wonderful, scenic, quiet, serene and did I mention wonderful! I can't beleive the negative reviews about this place and was concerned, but I must say it is wonderful. As for the white fly hatch, we get those at home too and we just turn off the lights and they go away....common sense will hopefully prevail.

Room Tip: F Building is the best!

Just left this resort after just being there for only 2 days. Beware of the lure of being by a lake, you're across the road from it. II and RCI guests are hustled into the backlot buildings (we were in Bldg D, unit 118) near the highway and were told there were no other units available. We were told that they were booked solid and no transfers into other units. We counted a dozen empty units that the first night. Trailer parks abound and there are no amenities in the area.

One bedroom condo's are underneath the 2 BD's, so there's not much light and is cave like, the furnishings cheap hotel type. The small bedroom is in the back and the noise from the highway was terrible, plus there are no curtains on the windows, only cheap blinds. The light from the parking lot is right in your face at night so we had to put a blanket over the window.

The kicker was the infestation of white flies in our unit. We were not told of the problem until we complained about the hundreds of them that invaded our unit. We were told not to open the doors and that they were attracted to light. So you don't open a door? and never turn on lights, which by the way are all low light bulbs.

We complained to WorldMark management and they did nothing but make excuses. I can't say anything good about this resort and I've been in II for 26 years, so I have experience with exchanges.

BEWARE THIS IS NOT A 5 STAR RESORT.

The positive reveiws that I read before taking my wife to this resort must have been written by people that stayed in second story rooms. Before you go, be aware that one bedroom condo's are all downstairs and if you want a restfull nights sleep, wait until you're home. We heard people all night long walking, talking, and shouting until 3:30am the first night and they were just a bit less noisy the second (and last night) we stayed. We did talk with the front desk about the problem and they were as helpful as a person that can't change the situation can be. We booked a week at the hotel and we came home after the second night.

The area doesn't offer much more. If you're a boater and are staying on the second floor than you will probably really enjoy your stay. Make sure to either pack your food in or go shop at the lakeport Safeway for your food because anything in Nice is very expensive and the food didn't look as fresh.
