The three bedroom units are well planned and would be suitable for two families since there are two master suites at opposite ends of the unit. Both have king-size beds, bathtubs (one is a whirlpool), and a separate shower. Both have large TV's, ceiling fans, and plenty of storage.
The third bedroom has twin beds and a bathroom across the hall. This bedroom also has a TV and ceiling fan. The third bath has a regular tub/shower combination with sliding glass shower doors.
The kitchen and living room are open to each other. The kitchen has everything you'd need to prepare family meals. Cookie sheets, muffin pans, and baking pans are available if you call housekeeping. The kitchen table seats six, which is odd since the villa can accommodate eight. The utility closet contains a stacking, full-size washer/dryer; sweeper; mop; broom; etc.
Some guests may not care for the slate floors. They are not completely smooth and are very dark. The wooden kitchen chairs seem a bit noisy on this surface. You will probably hear your upstairs neighbors.
The living room has a pullout sofa, two chairs, coffee and end tables, TV, stereo, and DVD player. French doors lead to a screened porch with a table and four chairs.
The details in these units are what I like. I felt like we were staying in someone's home. There were pictures on the walls, matching window valances, wooden blinds on the living room windows, chair rail, and carpet in the living room and bedrooms.
The grounds at this resort are extremely beautiful. A sidewalk runs along the lake. It was a lovely place to walk in the evenings. There are two "dock" areas extending into the water. Chairs and hammocks are positioned along the shore for rest and relaxation.
There is a pool behind the clubhouse, along with a whirlpool and a children's area. There is also a newer pool on the opposite end of the resort. This area also has a whirlpool and a children's pool. Vending machines and restrooms are in this area. Pool towels are provided.

The units all have three bedrooms, three large baths, and a huge living/kitchen/dining area. We love the screened-in porches in every unit. Ask for a lake view. The units are very well equipped, with TVs and a DVD player and stereo in each room. It's clean and beautiful. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The only minor drawback is that there is no on-site restaurant, which they promised when we bought about 9 years ago. No problem-there are great restaurants all around. The two pools are very nice. Activities go on around the pool all summer. Great place!
