This is a very nice timeshare resort, but we went off season to save money. We had 4" of snow the first night and it got down to 10 deg F. Everything was cleared asap, but it was still cold and there was some ice. It was a considerable distance from town - you couldn't walk to any activities that were not on the grounds. Across the street was a small mini-mart and gas station.
There is a constant offer to get free show tickets, but you would have to listen to a timeshare presentation. If you don't care about the free tickets, or really hate timeshare presentations, then you don't have to attend the talk.
The resort does have activities on site. There was an indoor pool with a hot tub, and I enjoyed the water aerobics three mornings a week - there were participants from both the town and the resort.. There are more water aerobics days during the regular season.
There were 4 outdoor pools as well as the indoor, but that wasn't an option in February. In season there is trout fishing, tennis, basketball, volleyball. There was a horseshoe pit and an 18 hole minature golf course, as well as a playground for the kids and an area to barbecue in.
There is an activity room where you can check out equipment (including towels for the pool), and there is a small fitness center. The activity director schedules card games and people play dominos. There is a computer to hook up to the internet for 15 minutes at a time, and at present there is free wireless access in the activity room. (They said they were going to charge for it eventually.) They also have a library of movies for viewing in your room(s)
There was a hairdresser, but she overcharged me (double the published rate) and she also failed to keep two appointments. She is a private contractor who rents space.
Unique Quality: We were on the fourth floor, but there was an elevator.
We had a studio apartment, which had a nice queen bed, a couch with an end table and a phone (local calls were 25 cents each), a TV on a chest, a table and chairs. There was a studio kitchen - a stove top, a microwave, a toaster, a coffee pot, and a very small refrigerator. The main problem with the refrigerator was that the freezer was tiny. We couldn't put anything much into it. It was too small for even a little bottle of water.
Their write-up said Each studio unit is 314 square feet and can accomodate up to 2 people. Each unit has one bathroom and one queen bed. There is a partial kitchen that includes a mini microwave, 2-burner stove, under the counter refrigerator, one sink, and table set for two.
The restaurant is only open on weekends at this time of year, although they did have a dinner show at the resort. It was a retrospective of male country singers. We didn't go because we are not country music people.
We were doing this on a Space Available basis (and off season) for the military, but week 35 would be $1400.00 for 6 people.
