Wifey and I have a time share at Fairfield Mountains Beach and Golf resort that we inherited 4 years ago. This is the second time we have stayed during our Memorial Day week. Anyone can experience the fantastic amenities that are extremely reasonably priced.
If you are a golfer you will have a hard time finding a better place to stay. There are two courses that are both challenging and extremely beautiful. The Apple Valley course is longer and tougher but both have their moments. There are two tiered greens, sloping valley type fairways with elevated tees and plenty of lakes, brooks and streams. The week we were here the courses were wide open and quite affordable - $44 greens fee with cart.
The rest of the resort was also in excellent shape. There was a new lazy river pool, magic mushroom waterfalls in one of the two very large and extremely relaxing pools. Also, the gym has been upgraded with brand new exercise equipment, plasma tvs and a team class room for yoga etc.
New croquet court, basketball court, tennis courts and putt putt course.
The beach was also very nice with awesome Lake Lure sprawling out from the marina with pontoon boat, ski boat and kayak rentals.
We grilled out at community grills within our condo block and also had great meals at the Point of View restaurant and LaSuena Mexican restaurant at Chimney Rock. The Margarita Grill is also notable as a local hangout.
We also spent a day at the Billtmore Estate in nearby Asheville (45 miles away), a spectacle you do not want to miss.
Overall, a great getaway into the outskirts of the Blue Ridge NC mountains.
