We had a balcony outside the living room with a table and chairs. The view was wonderful. I even took several pictures of to show everyone at home how great it was.
Outside the bedroom that the kids used were beautiful rocks going up the side of the 'hill'. A ground squirrel must have lived there, because we saw him several times. The kids loved watching him.
One other thing we noticed was small lizards outside our unit. That was great fun for our kids. They wanted to catch one so bad. I'm not sorry that we came home empty-handed!

The golf course had a great layout and was in good shape, with a reasonable price. We enjoyed the activities at the resort. We participated in the Bingo, Casino Night and the Plate Decorating.

The resort was Stonebridge Village, rated very highly in our RCI guide. Since school had started (fall season), we did not expect it to be very crowded. In fact during the week it was very quiet. We stayed in the Oakridge section of the resort, near the Splash pool (unheated). This was where the models are that they hope to sell you. We were in the "studio" half of 2-bedroom unit. RCI described it as a 1-bedroom.
The unit was big enough for the 2 of us, but it certainly was not on par with the unit (Hacienda del Mar in Cabo) that we had traded for it. First of all we were in the lower level, which meant our view out of either of the 2 windows were boulder rocks because we were situated below ground level. The overall cleanliness was OK, but there was no trash pick-up, and the carpet was filthy. We were using a luggage rack with a mini ironing board on it for a coffee table. After going through the sales pitch and seeing what the "normal" units looked like, we decided to find out about changing units, because there seemed to be quite a few not occupied. The bottom line was we could switch, but it would cost us.
That was the downside of Stonebridge. The upside was that the Ozark mountains are beautiful and golfing was what we went for and we were not disappointed. The course there (Ledgestone, 18 holes) was great, and there was a discount for folks staying at the resort. We paid $35 or $70 for the two of us for 18 holes, weekday or weekend. The course was in great condition, a real challenge, and we could always get tee times.
We also went to a Jack Nickalaus signature par 3 course, "Top of the Rock," overlooking Table Top Lake. There are special prices for couples, and late afternoon tee times. The golf was great and the view spectacular. Dinner was also very good at the course.
The only show we went to was Jim Stafford. Actually, we were given the tickets because we attended the no-pressure sales presentation. The restaurants in the area leave something to be desired. And shopping is mostly outlets that are everywhere around the country. Of course there was a big Walmart that we were able to get anything we needed.
I would go back in a heartbeat if I could guarantee better accommodations.
