Buffalo, New York
February 1, 2004
It was wonderful! These were townhouse-type units, and we're convinced they were built as private homes. We had unit #38, and there are all sorts of special touches that you see in private homes -- like an unfurnished balcony (otherwise why build one and not furnish it?) overlooking the living room -- and all the townhouses seemed to be slightly different. The art on the walls seemed to be individually selected, too, and there was a patio for summertime use that had a barbeque grill, and another area that had a picnic table. (In January, we were more interested in the fireplace.)
The maintenance staff was very accommodating when we tried to get the gas fireplace going before first reading through the RCI binder, and managed to shut off the pilot. (The control is a thermostat on the wall next to the television.) More living room furniture than most time shares. All foour of us could stretch out and read. Good reading lights, too, which is rare. And the sofabed was much more comfortable than is the norm -- both as a sofa and as a bed. Big dining room table, too. We had guests, and sat six very comfortably. Lots of linens -- including featherbeds! Heaven! Snowplowing was done very promptly. (It never stopped snowing while we were there!) Long driveway, which easily fit two cars. (Could have fit three in a pinch.)
Very pleasant place. I'll definitely return.
