Things we did on-site: We went to a crafts fair at the Conference Center and really enjoyed it. We signed up for a special winemaker’s dinner at the Conference Center. The food was very good and we learned a lot about the winery's different products as well as why this region is so good for growing wine grapes. We took a class in couples' massage from one of the massage therapists at the spa and learned how to help each other get the kinks out of our necks and shoulders. There is a calendar printed weekly showing all the things you can do and classes you can take.
The unit we had was upstairs and was very nice. The kitchen was quite complete, which was important to us, as we like to cook in rather than eat out every night. There was a very nice balcony with a gas grill and a gas fireplace in the unit, which we used a couple of evenings. The master bedroom was very comfortable, and the master bath had a good-sized Jacuzzi tub as well as separate shower. We did not use the second bedroom. The living area furniture was very comfortable and not at all worn. There was a TV in the living-room area and both bedrooms. It is definitely a Gold Crown resort.

We stayed at Woodstone, which, at the time, was their newest development. As you drive into the resort, it is the first series of buildings you see. In fact, the Woodstone recreation facility is also the check-in/welcome center. Our unit consisted of two bedrooms with a full kitchen. The unit was very comfortable for us and made us feel right at home. We could walk to the recreation center, where we used the pool and the fitness center, played table tennis, got massages, and took yoga classes. As a runner, the rolling hills made for good workouts, although I was scared of being hit by stray golf balls.
Overall, the staff was very nice and helpful. To give you one great example of staff friendliness, the yoga instructor remembered us from a previous visit 2 years before!
A car is essential, even just to get around the resort - it is that big. The restaurant was very good. The pancakes were huge. The lunch was good. It is very easy to spend the whole week there and not leave the grounds, since there is so much to do. We've been there twice and are looking forward to going back. It is very highly recommended!

Farther afield, though, there are wineries, historic farmers markets and towns, Civil War trails, presidential homes, and of course, Washington DC. I love this place--there's so much to do if you want to and wonderful, relaxing mountain air if you don't.

Also, we didn't care for the on-site stables where we went horseback riding. You must make reservations well in advance (a day or two), and we paid for a full hour (privately owned and not included with other free offerings at resort) and were back just shy of 45 minutes. The horses were so used to this; they just walked sooooooooo slowly. This is good only if it's your first time on a horse. Also, my husband played a round of golf (also must pay extra) and took our 11-year-old son to watch. They will not let children go because of insurance reasons. We thought it was silly and thought they could have had a waiver you could have signed.
All in all, however, we had a great time and will come here as much as possible. It's just too pretty.
