As long time members and former condo owners at Avalon, it was a delight to return to Avalon during the Bikes, Blues & BBQ weekend. Dramatic improvement has been accomplished in the infrastructure, and service. We were quite frankly astounded at the improvements that new management and a team of dedicated members have accomplished in less than a year since our last visit. We stayed in the lodge and got one of the newly refurbished rooms with a new (comfortable) bed, a mini fridge and a microwave--plus some unique art from our new home club in Florida. That said, the lodge is still an old Church of God camp, and the walls are a bit thin...nothing to be done about that...
The non-smoking policy in the bar "Nudsino" is wonderful. Even smokers have commented that they can actually enjoy a drink and conversation there without gagging on clouds of second hand smoke.
Be sure that you understand up front what food will be on offer during your visit.
It was truly wonderful to see that Avalon's new management has turned the place around.
