Resort Experience:
I went on a week's getaway with my children. The resort was truthful in their advertising about a lot of stairs!! My children counted 50 to our second-floor unit - I was just glad I was not on the fourth floor!

The resort was average, and the staff very friendly and helpful. I did have an issue with the lack of outdoor lighting - at night it would be hazardous to walkers - and they did not seem to know how to go about getting the light fixture fixed.

We had a two-bedroom unit that had everything we needed. I did find that I would have liked a few of my kitchen "things" that would have made cooking easier - I cooked in every night. On the whole, the unit needed some maintenance/updates - it looked as if it had a several very heavy winters of use. But the unit was clean, and that counts for a lot!

As far as activities, since it is mostly an owner occupied/rented, there are not any activities except for a full-day, all-week camp run by a third party for the kids. I did not enroll my children, since I wanted to vacation with them.

Would I go back? Yes, since I now know what to expect. Also, one owner I spoke to indicated there are maintenance plans projected for the next several years.
