The second week we stayed at the Summit. It was very nice, and the girls loved the huge bathtub. There was lots of room and a great view. The first week we stayed at the Shenandoah Villas, which had a very nice setup, with separate cottage-like building located near the top of the mountain. There were a lot of stairs, though.
They have two golf courses, one up on the mountain (be sure to aim for one side of the fairway, as most of them roll to one side) and one at the base. There are four pools, at least, two of them indoors. Basketball and tennis courts are everywhere, and there is an indoor gymnasium. There are spas and good restaurants and lots of shows and activities, regardless of your age. The only thing that would make this place more convenient would be a shuttle service. The place is huge, so you need a car.

I saw that the resort states that you may have to walk up many stairs. I didn't see many stairs to most of the units. It is like a typical resort, and you may have to take the steps either upstairs or downstairs, but that was generally about it. There were maybe a few extras, but nothing exhausting. This is all one property, so any of the resorts you book will be on this same property, just a different building. Therefore, all of the Massanutten resorts share the same amenities. My parents traveled with us, but they stayed in Woodstone at Massanutten. We had to take a car to get back and forth, but it was only a 2-minute drive to get back and forth. We didn't have any inconveniences with this.
They also had a concert while we were there. It was The Marshall Tucker Band. They had someone else opening, but I can't remember his name. I was disappointed in the fact that this resort seems very proud of the fact that they are family-oriented, but the opening act of this concert was very inappropriate for our 9-year-old. We were thrown off guard by that and were a bit disappointed in some of the vulgar jokes he was telling. Otherwise, I think this was a great way to end the week.
We did listen to the 2-hour sales pitch in order to get the $125. The other good thing about doing that was that it gave us a tour of the place. This took us up to see honeymoon point, which has a breathtaking view. So, if you can spare the time, I would recommend the sales pitch. They were not pushy, and it gave us extra cash.

The indoor pool area needed some updating, but overall, this is a nice resort that we would return to.

Woodstone's units lie "outside" the central resort. Observe the resort's map at their website to get an idea of the layout.
It's at Woodstone where the resort has recently expanded. There is an eighteen hole golf course, and a large rec. center within a short distance from units at Woodstone. For most, it's a short walk or drive to these locations. Not so at The Summit, where you're located on the higher mountain sides of the cenral resort. Here, things are spread out more, and an auto becomes essential.

The unit was just wonderful. New furniture, TV in each room, deck in front and one in back overlooking the mountain and valley. Huge unit.

The place was exceptionally clean and well stocked. Massanutten will send you a letter ahead of your trip with a list of things you should bring - dish soap, trash bags, etc. Even though we came prepared, we found the supplies in the condo more than sufficient for us. There are only three of us so it might be a little different with six people but not much. We left behind a lot of unused supplies. The only thing I used that I brought along myself was laundry detergent.
Pros: Clean, quiet area, ample living space, jacuzzi, wildlife, communication from Massanutten, marked parking space, good grounds maintenance...
Cons: Stairs (if they are a problem for you), [note: not all units have stairs; some are a straight walk into the unit], have to drive to most activities...
