The complex had two outdoor pools and hot tubs. The recreation building had a small indoor pool, sauna and racquetball court. Outside the pool building were a couple of grills and picnic tables. These were quite popular the entire time we were there. One of the buildings had an activities room. There was someone there to buy tickets and make reservations. They also had a game room with board games.
We stayed in a two-bedroom unit. Ours was one of the older buildings, so some of the furnishings, like tile and countertops, were quite dated. However, unlike some older units we stayed in, it was very clean. We were pleased with it.
The kitchen had every appliance and utensil that we needed. Once again, it was clean and organized. We did discover the last day that the oven didn’t open. Since it was the last day, we didn’t bother calling for maintenance, so I don’t know how responsive they would have been.
They had a huge utility closet. It would have been large enough for a full size washer and dryer but they did not provide that. Each building had a free laundry room with four washers and four dryers. They also had a free daily towel/linen exchange that kept dirty laundry under control.
The dining room seated six people at the table which was plenty big enough for us. The living area had a fold out sofa and a love seat. They had a dvd/vhs player with the TV. In the corner, they had a huge stone fireplace, and the resort provided free firewood.
The balcony overlooked one of the two outdoor pools and hot tubs. This pool area also had a small playground.
The master bedroom had a queen-size bed, closet, two nightstands, and a chest of drawers. The bathroom had the hotel-style shower/bath combination.

The small parking lot near the resort office is for arriving/departing guests only. Your check in is short. Information is available on printed handouts to guide you to stores, restaurants, hikes, drives and things to do. Staff is nice.
There are several buildings on one side of the road and one (bldg.4) on the other. Three outdoor pools/one indoor. I was in building 8 and it had a pool area with a medium sized pool, a kiddie pool and nice hot tub. Plenty of seating and pool chairs.
Gas grills were available for outdoor cooking and picnic tables provided for sitting. A nice kids’ playground area is available with slides and climbing to wear down the kiddies.
Our unit inside was nicely appointed and furnished. Large two-bedroom, two-bath unit with full kitchen and living room/dining room combo. Nice big fireplace too. TVs in living room and master bedroom. Master bath had a jacuzzi, but it was older and a bit long in the tooth. Otherwise, unit was great.
You get the feeling that you are in "nature" at this resort. Maybe it's the river or the trees or the mountains rising above you...or perhaps the birds chirping, the flowers and the nice landscaping...or maybe it's because you ARE in nature. A nice natural setting for a resort. We liked it very much. We became owners last year and will probably exchange our floating red week next year, but will return again...and again.
