The staff of this resort are very nice but one day the power went out at about 9:30 pm and the clubhouse closes at 8:30. I called the emergency or after hours number several times to see what was going on and there was no answer. I was so surprised that no one called us to let us know what was going on and to see if we needed help. I guess they don't realize that being from out of state, and not being familiar with fireplaces and snow, there were questions that would have settled our anxieties greatly, if we had a few answers. Power was off about 12 hours and not a call.
The other thing is that there is no a/c but only heaters. The rooms were too warm even when we turned the thermostat down to 65.
Having one boy and one girl, it would have been nice if the second bedroom had twin beds. Most of the timeshares we have been to are set up that way. There was a sofa bed but neither of the kids wanted to sleep outside in the living room alone.
Other than that, this was a very nice place to stay. Nice workout room, gift shop, pool. Friendly staff, clean facilities with updated appliances. Surrounding area quite nice (we saw some deer on the snow covered golf course as the sun was going down and it was a lovely scene. )
Nice little market down the street with shops nearby. Good place to stay.
