I had only one "real" issue that was handled very well by the BRV management team. Based on previous reviews suggesting to get to a renovated unit, I reserved a "superior" unit vs "standard" unit where superior is renovated. I ended up in building 12 in non-renovated room. In my opinion the unit was in good enough shape (and we spent no time in the unit for the first 24 hours aside from sleeping) that it took me a day to realize I wasn't a renovated room. In the end, we continue to stay in the bldg 12 unit and the BRV management team worked it out with me to make it right in a very cordial way. Thank you Jackie and Kim.
We had a 2 bedroom unit with 6 people staying in it. We stayed in a non-renovated unit where everything important was in working order. Kitchen was fully stock w/ everything needed to cook and stove, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator were in good order. The heat and fireplace worked well and kept us warm in the low 30 temps. The furniture was a little dated but clean, there were TVs in every bedroom and the main living room in working order but old, and the carpet was in need of replacing.
We loved the indoor pool, hot tub, and the sauna. They also had a nice selection of board games that we borrowed. The grounds were nice and there are also outside activities that we didn't take advantage of due to weather.
We will definitely come back. The location to the towns we like to visit (Boone, Blowing, Valle Crucis) and the activities at Grandfather Mtn, hiking, apple picking is convenient. I wish I peaked into what the renovated units looked like before I left but I'm sure they will be nice.
