I attended the Charlotte Golf Show on Saturday, February 7th. I thought the presentation was very good and learned that real estate is offered in the area. Sunday, I took a drive to the mountains. I thought that since it was a nice day, two hours isn't that far to drive. The drive up is good. That was it. Once at the security gate, they gave me a hard time about not being a guest. (I thought that I was a guest, I drove two hours to check the place out). After convincing the guard manning the gate to let me go into the main office, I encountered a lady who was very rude. She would not answer any of my questions. Everything I asked, she did not have the knowledge to answer any of my questions. I inquired if I could just drive around the area, she told me the resort was private. The gentleman at the golf show specifically told me to go up and drive around the complex and check the place out. That was out of the question. I couldn't get past the main office. VERY DISCOURAGING FOR PROSPECTIVE REAL ESTATE BUYERS. I asked the lady where me and my wife could have lunch. She told me the only thing that was open was a restaurant at the Apple Valley Golf Course. Pretty course but the restaurant staff was awful. Two tables where occupied and it took us nearly 20 minutes before the waitress came to take our order. Just about everything was out of stock. We settled on salads. (Wilted lettuce, frozen tomatoes does not classify as a salad). And the salads took us approximately 45 minutes to get to our table. What was our waitress doing? NOTHING! Just thought that management should consider handling employees better since it is such a beautiful area. Who would want to visit, much less live there. Please do not let looks be deceiving. This place is not what is advertised. Poor service and rude employees are what should be advertised. I feel like I wasted an entire day. I love to golf and love the mountains but could not put up with the service.
