We went to Avalon in March 2012 for our first time (hint- use the free day pass on their webiste). The staff was great, from providing driving directions, to greeting us Friday evening and getting us settled, to the events throughout our weekend stay. The pool was very nice and I really enjoyed the (2) hot tubs. We stayed in the lodge, which was very convenient to the dining, bar, and pool area. We both enjoyed the planned activities (it was St Patricks weekend) and the ability to do our own thing at any time. We did a fair amount of walking the grounds, and really enjoyed the trails and a very strenuous walk to the local residential community right above Avalon. Our room was right next to the dining hall- a down side because we didn't think about the dance being there one evening and a movie the other, and the walls are paper thin. Next time we will definitely stay more in the middle or maybe in one of the condos. But for convenience, the lodge can't be beat. He was very sad to find out there was no TV in the room, but he survived! I was easily able to hook up to the WIFI from our room and also from the pool area. Cell phone service is pretty much not possible. We would definitely go back.
