Best Things About the Resort:
Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Spacious unit with fully equipped kitchen. Balcony with great view of the mountains.
All the units at the Land of Canaan Vacation Resort have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed, TV, dresser, and closet, and the other bedroom has two twin beds, dresser, and closet. They are both located upstairs. There is also a bathroom with tub and shower, vanity and toilet upstairs.
Downstairs there is a full-sized washer and dryer behind closet doors as soon as you walk in. To the left is a bathroom with a whirlpool bath and shower, vanity, and toilet.
The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. The kitchen was fully stocked with table service for six and many pots and pans and utensils. There is a dining room table that accommodates six people.
The living room has two sofas - one is a queen-sized sleeping sofa, one chair, TV with VCR and stereo and a gas fireplace. There is a balcony off the living room with two chairs. We sat out there as much as possible to enjoy the quiet and the beautiful view of the mountains.
There are air-conditioning units in the master bedroom and the living room. We visited in August, and we never used the air-conditioning. There was always a cool breeze that moved through the rooms. Overall, the unit was in very good condition and very clean.
At the resort there is an outdoor heated pool but you need to bring your own towels. It’s open from 10am to 10pm. There’s a children’s playground, two tennis courts, miniature golf course, basketball hoop, two shuffleboard courts, charcoal grills and picnic tables. You can borrow tennis racquets, basketballs etc., for 2-hour periods. When we visited they weren’t enforcing that rule; they let us borrow equipment as long as we wanted. In the office building, there’s a recreation room with four arcade games, ping-pong tables, sofas, and TV, vending machines, and many books and puzzles you can borrow. They have a very good selection of videos you can borrow at no charge. The resort offers activities Monday through Friday. Horseback riding is available behind the resort for $25 per hour. Three people in our family went and had a terrific time!
There is a starter kit of laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, four rolls of toilet tissue and trash bags. The water is extremely soft which means you use less detergent and we had more than enough for the week. There are no hair dryers. There’s an excellent book in the unit with any information you may need: day trips with maps, restaurants with menus, churches, etc. There’s a grocery store 9 miles away. There are many parks nearby to enjoy hiking and water sports.
This is a great place to go if you want to relax and enjoy the quiet and the beautiful scenery.
