We stayed in a 2 bedroom yurt. The pictures don't lie. How they are able to maintain these things out in the woods "bug free and spotless" is beyond me. The amenities are modern and all of the furniture has a wooden feel. The interior walls are like log cabin while the outter walls are insulated. These things are impressive. My kids 7 & 9 loved it. The bathroom is huge and the shower can fit about 5 adults inside. it has a dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge, and full size stove and oven. I used the grill every day and sat out on the deck to enjoy morning coffee and evening night caps.
The pools were great (indoor and outdoor). The horseback riding was a nice experience. We kayacked on the lake and did a little fishing one afternoon. We made use of the tennis courts and mini golf.
Don't expect to check in early as it seems that they don't release units until 4pm check-in. They will enable you to use amenities on the property while waiting. The game rooms are fun and we enjoyed a magic show one evening. The dive-in movie by the pool was a nice treat. They don't encourage bringing your own food or drink to the pool areas, but they won't bother you about it and you'll be fine. Just don't bring glass. It is a good idea to go grocery shopping before you get to the area as Walmart is about 30 mins away.
The general store will have alot of the things that you may have forgotten to bring at very reasonable prices. There is a variety of snacks and convenience items available. The deli attached to the general store has hot and cold food with good portions at good prices. We did not use the restaurant, but it looked nice and I would assume is reasonable.
Overall great stay in the yurt at Sheandoah Crossing. The timeshare presentation was about 3 hrs for us, but they are pretty friendly and not pushy. Don't stay here if you have to be connected to the internet or cell phone 24/7. I didn't complain because it was great to get away from the phone and computer for the week. There is a computer at the general store if you must log on. The free wi-fi didn't work for us. We didn't get good signals on the cell phones. It was great to be out of touch with that stuff for a few days. Again, if you need reception and internet, you may be disappointed.
This place is great for families and a romantic getaway. The yurts are like tents so you can hear everything inside all the rooms and outside. nature sounds beatiful. Quiet hours from 10pm-8am worked very well. I can't say anything bad about this place.
