Good location near the town and the beginning of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the women's showers near us were unusable, and other problems such as an out-of-order ice machine and no cell reception detracted from the experience. Much of the staff seemed new and inexperienced, though eager to help. BIG -- lots of room to walk, ride, etc. Daughter loved the bouncy pillow, but was disappointed the pool was closed. The indoor pool is small and was overcrowded.
