We rented the 'Mountainview' home here for large family gathering. I won't go into detail about house as review is for resort. I don't know what I was expecting but the resort was just average. Our house was located high up mountain so we had to drive everywhere. I like to bike and/or walk a lot but since there is only one road going up and down with no guardrails or walking path, it is not very enjoyable. Actually, the driving to resort is a little intense and don't count on your GPS working the whole way.
The kids can't ride bikes or scooters here and couldn't play soccer in the yard due to large dangerous drop offs - quickly lost ball. We surprisingly saw little wild life - only couple of deer and one squirrel, few birds. Beware there is only satellite TV so don't expect to watch your favorite games. The pub restaurant was average - they used canned mushrooms on pizza ugh. There was indoor pool which we did not use but it looked okay for winter months. The man-made lake beach area was shockingly small and unimpressive. I would not enjoy swimming there in warm months.
The nearby Canopy Ridge zip lining was a fun way to spend a couple of hours (not cheap but kids loved it). There was big grocery store (and liquor store) a good 15 minutes away. Chimney Rock is approx. 30-minute drive away. They had cute shops and decent restaurants. If you like to hike, hike up Chimney Rock. My very active 70-yr old mother made it up so it’s very doable. There is river/stream area behind shops that the kids enjoyed. Also a good ice cream shop. My family wants to go back to area but not sure if we need to stay at this resort.
