We went here on a summer weekend with a large group from church, beating out the heatwave in Boston. We got a discounted rate, which made the stay more reasonable. The resort itself is very cute, our first time staying in a ski resort like this, so have nothing to compare it to - however it seemed to be a community within itself. I loved all the activities available, the various cute shops and mini-eateries (i.e., sandwich shop, ice cream shop, etc.) on site.
As for accommodations, the suites that we stayed in seemed to have a full kitchenette (i.e., plates, dishwasher and soap, etc), about 2 rooms with queen size beds, and acouple rooms with bunk beds or twin beds, with at least 2 or 3 bathrooms in each suite. NOTE: not all rooms have equipped with AC!! we learned this the hard way, when we noticed our friends room was nice and cool, and then walked into our suite, and it was hot - and only provided with fans. It was really miserable for the people that had to bunk on the top floor of our suite.
Our rooms were all in the "Town Square" making it convenient to get to all the activities (e.g., ice rink, paddle boats, etc), however, bc our room had no AC and we had to open the windows - it made it VERY loud in the room when they had live country bands playing outside all day.
I could see this as a fun vacation for families.
FYI - they also DONT have a nurse on staff, so when someone in our group wanted someone to check out an ear pain she had - they had to call the local ambulance to come. The local ER is also 20+ minutes away. There also didnt seemed to be as much supervision as you'd think (e.g., dont think there was a lifeguard on duty at the pool or the beach area).
