The resort area and grounds are kept nice and provide a lot of activities for kids, including tennis, playground, both indoor and outdoor pools, and a hot tub. They also have an indoor rec area, and the resort has an activity person who gets crafts, etc., going for the kids.
I have to put emphasis on the resort’s friendliness, as these people are just that... very friendly.
The resort itself is not a brand-new resort by any means, but it is kept very clean; the maintenance fee is definitely put to work here!
The units are spacious and very well equipped, and the amenities are very well kept up and very suitable for all ages.
I was pleased that there were both indoor and outdoor pools, as it rained 2 days. Both pools are the same size, and once again, well maintained.
The resort is away from all of the action of the busier areas by about 5 minutes, which was nice for me, as I liked the more relaxed atmosphere.
In all, the resort impressed me, as it's not huge and over-built, and not overcrowded... it's a family-feel resort with a lot of down-home character. I would recommend this resort for families in both summer and winter, as it is close to ski areas.
Lastly, I was told the golfing is great here as well. I don't play, but the golf course is about 15 steps from the resort, and is a well-kept country club.
In all, this is a great family resort and very peaceful, as it’s about 5 miles from the nearest restaurant or shopping area. It was a great vacation and I hope to visit this resort again.

The resort is centrally located to numerous ski resorts. Cold Springs will provide transportation to several ski resorts during the week. Monday to Friday, skiing is an exceptional deal, with most resorts offering half-price lift tickets or similar deals.

This timeshare has an indoor pool and an outdoor pool as well (obviously not open when we were there). The pool is not supervised. If you are going to this resort, bring your own towels; they do not supply towels other than the tiny ones you have in your room.
The outings are a hoot. We had a great time going to the Budweiser Beer Tour. They have a van which takes up to 14 guests. It is a daytrip which includes the tour, seeing the horses, and a lunch out. There are many other outings like this one. They also drive you to local ski resorts and to rock-climbing.
Nearly everynight they have a craft class for children and some nights they also have crafts for adults. The crafts are quite intense in some cases. For the children they have suncatchers, bird gliders, 3-D bugs, etc. For the adults, they have slate painting and glass etching. There is a nominal charge for this.
This resort is definitely small. It seems to be run by only a few people. There is no restaurant on-site and nothing within walking distance. The units are small as well and they really nickle and dime you if you lose even a piece of paper. You are given a book (binder with pages) at check-in and charged $25.00 if you do not return the book, and $3.00 per page if something happens to one of the pages. They also have some silly rules at check-out that can cost you money if you don't read the book carefully.

The location was great. It's within 20 minutes to Loon, Waterville, and Tierny Mountain. We highly recommend Cold Springs Resort and will return next year.
