We stayed at Appleview in 2011 and in 2012 decided to try a different resort which is very close to Appleview. That was a mistake! Back to Appleview in 2013.
We stayed in C433. As always, Barbara in the office is great to deal with. She's friendly and helpful.
Our unit was very clean. After our experience last year at a different resort, this was a huge deal for us. Yes, the place needs painting, but it's not a deal breaker at all. The decor was lovely as well. Beds are VERY comfortable! Also, my 5 year old loved the pool.
We had a few minor complaints - we have to have wireless internet for my husband's work (yes, he still has to do work on vacation, unfortunately). This unit has DSL which only worked for a few hours our first night there. The rest of the week it didn't. The box would just click off and on repeatedly. We unplugged it, plugged it back in, several times with no luck. We also tried the reset button on the back. Nothing. That was disappointing.
Also the shower heads have hardly any pressure which made rinsing long thick hair time consuming.
Our first night there I left the ceiling fan on in the master bedroom. I woke up around 2 AM to a strong burning rubber smell. I turned off the fan and by morning the smell was gone. The next time I had the ceiling light on (which is a part of the fan), the smell started again. The rest of the week I did not use the fan or the light.
All of that being said, we still love Appleview and will definitely stay here again on our next visit. You just can't beat the cleanliness and location. It's quiet, but not way off of the parkway. Also, the view of the Little Pigeon River is fantastic!
