“A great place for a family vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stayed for four nights in August accompanied by our 6 year old grandson and had a great time. This is a very family-oriented facility; we were pleased to discover other grandparent/grandchild groups. The miniature golf course was right outside our unit and we were close to the lake and playground. He spent hours in the indoor pool and was delighted to be able to check out boardgames. Lots of activities were on offer; the hot dog and marshmallow roast was a hit.

We were booked into one of the recently rennovated units; it was tastefully decorated, there were new appliances, flat screen televisions, even a washer/dryer. All in all, a very good value.

Room Tip: The units are on three levels and there are no elevators. The staff very kindly switched us to the g...

If you like hiking, drives on the parkway, fishing? Well keep reading for the best fishing hole we found!.

The resort- We stayed in building 10 unit D which was an updated 2bd/2ba which was done very nicely, and is large in size. Kitchen had plenty of room to cook each meal, which is what we do. Our building overlooked the small size pond ( lake ) which was nice, but the main road was also near allowing us to hear the traffic drive by. We slept with the windows open since the weather was just wonderful ( July ) , even had a cross breeze through the unit.

Festiva amenities – were adequate enough to have fun, indoor pool ( enclosed ) was really to warm since we visited in the summer. The windows were unable to open to allow the heat to escape. MiniGolf – was fun for the 5 minutes the kids can keep the mind on the task of hitting the golf ball, without loosing them  Playground – did not really have much to do. Monkey bars, rocking thingy, and some back-hoe toy and exercise room noting great…just go hiking..
The “lake” had 3 paddle boats. My kids spent most of their time playing on them. I spent some time fishing and only catching 1 blue gill. (Fishing tip) be sure to click on the –

The best fishing hole was found about 4 miles from the resort at a neighbor hood swimming lake call WildCat Lake which is found on - State Rd 1342.
(GPS- 36.147968,-81.882419 ) We could about 35 blue gills in about 1 hour and 10 minutes….just cast and pull!! Oh, bait can be picked at most gas stations.
Was this review helpful? YES!!
Staff – The staff was Great! They supplied us with all the extras we needed if it was, soap, coffee, pillows etc, they said Ok! We’ll have it for you!
They also had a welcome breakfast the Monday we arrived and other activities which you can sign up for – at least go to the free ones.

Places to visit – I’ll leave that up to you. It just beautiful up in the mountains, and no matter where you stop it just breathtaking.

Room Tip: Just ask them when you make you purchase or reservation

We purchased this stay through Groupon. We were surpised at how nice the room was and how well stocked the kitchen was. We didn't spend much time with the resort activities, but if you do stay here they have tickets to Biltmore at an excellent price.

Room Tip: If you don't like to hear squeaky floors or people above you ask for a higher floor. It is wood...

We had a very nice family mini-vacation of 3 nights here. The resort grounds were well maintained and we were in a beautiful, newly-remodeled unit. We were there with two adults and two teens and we never had a dull moment with all the activities available on the resort grounds.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room. You might also want to ask for something lake view or close to the clubhou...

We have stayed all over the world and this is very much a top notch property. We loved it, our suite was in perfect, comfortable condition and much have been recently updated. And an excellent value. The property was beautiful, too. We have very high standards and this was a superior property and stay all around.

Purchased our stay Groupon and the value was outstanding. We stayed in a remodeled two bedroom unit and it was very clean and well stocked. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The weather and scenery were beautiful. There are lots of things to keep the kids occupied. I cannot wait to go back.

We just came back from a 4 night stay in this resort and we were all very happy with the experience. The 6 1/2 hour drive was well worth it. Our Unit 11G was very roomy and clean. All the staff members I have dealt with were very nice and accomodating. Jeff who have helped me when i made my reservations in March was not on duty when we checked in but called the following day to make sure we are comfortable with our stay. Angela was very helpful too.My husband and 15 year old son enjoyed fishing on the pond. My 17 year old daughter and her friend enjoyed just walking around the property. I enjoyed the place overall. Will recommend the place to friends.
