A February 2006 trip
to United States by jmhook
Quote: We went north for Spring Break. This was our second RCI trip, as new RCI members this year. We wanted to see a little history, and some snow.

http://www.friartuck.com/The timeshare units (Village) are in separate two-story buildings from the main resort and require a vehicle to go back and forth. It was too cold to walk that distance in March. The units were older but very roomy and clean. There is broadband wireless access in each unit. Each of the two bedrooms in the unit had two queens, in addition to the foldout couch, so you can sleep a total of 10 people.
At the main resort, we never saw any other occupants. We took advantage of the pool (no one else around), sauna, spa, and restaurant (no one else around). We ordered a bottle of wine in the restaurant and they let us take it and the ice bucket back to our room, which was nice.
The resort is just 10 miles away from ski areas in the Catskills and Hunter Mountain, which we did not use because there was no snow there in early March.

It was cold, in the teens, when we visited in March, with a little bit of snow on the ground. This was a very nice place to stay. We were on the second floor. There are no elevators. Our two-bedroom unit also had a loft with two additional beds (without doors).
There were many amenities, and Loon Mountain Ski Resort was right across the street for skiing (with discounted tickets available at the Village desk). The $41 housekeeping fee still made it worth the stay. The night we arrived, there was a clown making balloon animals in the conference center. I would definitely recommend this place again.
