“Villas are cute but in the hills, lots of steps”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

First impression when we arrived - wow lot of winding roads, but cute!
On our confirmation email....Multi Floor Elevator Access : No.... but didn't expect to walk up a set of several concrete steps to reach the individual condos! These condos, as cute as they were, with deer roaming all around the resort, would not be a viable option for someone handicaped or have a problem walking stairs

Right next door (or I should say down the hill) is the French Lick Hotel, with a lot of amenities that are available to the villas. We were too busy wine tasting, covered bridge searching, monastery touring, and rail riding to check any out.

The town of French Lick is an awesome place to stay!

Our condo highs: Spacious, fireplace, huge jacuzzi, sauna, washer and dryer, 2 story loft, extra 'play/reading area on top loft, casino just a walk away!

Our condo lows: Dirty carpeting, especially the stairs, carpet in need of cleaning, lots of stairs (since it's a loft) and the outside stairs. The condo had a roomy balcony, with yet even another set of steps that lead to nowhere??? Wifi available for a charge, but only one device, so you had to decide either use phone or a laptop!
I don't know how I missed pics or reviews about all these steps!

Also, too many possible penalties! I've never stayed anywhere that charged if I was not checked out ON TIME, if I loose my key, if I have to have maintenance let me in.... there are more, but don't remember them. Upon check in one of the staff hands you this huge folder with suggestions of restaurants and the adjoining properties amenities, and all kinds of dos and donts! Not one time during our week stay did the staff call to see if everything was ok, or if we needed something

This resort sits in a beautiful setting up in the hillside, it's in a neat town of French Lick, but you have to be able to walk a lot of stairs! That is the only reason I only give it a four. I Still would recommend.

Spent week here in a very roomy 2 bedoom unit that sleeps 8. The unit has a large jacuzzi tub that we did not use in one bathroom but we did use the suana which worked great. The kitchen had everything we needed and a large counter bar that seats about 5 or 6. The Villas charges $15.00 for 168 hours of Wi Fi which I thought was reasonable. It worked fine...We had plenty of towels, blankets etc which was good since they do not clean mid week like some resorts do. Check out time is early, 10 am and they charge $100 if you are not out on time...All in all there is plenty to do here and we really enjoyed our time here.

It was a beautiful condo with a loft. The condo had a washer and dryer, and two person jacuzzi, two bathrooms, sauna, big kitchen, dining room and roomy living room with a fireplace. (The condo gave us a Duraflame log to use each day in the fireplace.) The loft had two bedrooms -one of the bathrooms and a sitting room to play games or sit and read. It was very clean and right next door to the big French Lick Hotel if one wanted to go there to eat, look around or gamble. The only negative thing to say was it was a winding road to get to the condo and we had trouble figuring out which one was ours after we checked in at the visitor's center.

Room Tip: treated seniors well
