We just back from a nice week at Wyndham Fairfield Bay, Arkansas.
We were given a deluxe two bedroom at the end of Fairway Road. The unit was around 1300 square feet. The kitchen was pretty small. It was pretty tight with two people working in it. It was well equipped, although my brother commented that the "green" dishwashing liquid hardly made any suds. The lighting was a little on the dim side except for the bedside lamps.
I found it surprising that the master bedroom did not have stand up shower. You needed to get into the humongeous jetted tub and use a hand held shower head. Not very convenient. It seems like you could take out the huge tub and get a regular sized tub and a stand up shower in the same space.
As stated in the previous review, the screens didn't fit well or roll well for the sliding glass doors. We were reluctant to keep the doors open at night because of the gaps.
It is showing some wear and tear. I guess they have "updated" recently by covering the old countertops in the bathroom with an epoxy and splattered paint. Can't say that it looked too good but it did go with the gaudy wallpaper that looked like someone scratched at while sitting on the loo. The decking and the bridge to the front door look pretty weathered. It doesn't help that golfers wear their cleats while walking on the wood. Although we had neighbor, we hardly ever heard them
Overall though, the resort and the unit meet/xceeded our needs for the week. The staff at the visitor's center were pleasant and helpful. We could also sit outside and use the wifi.
We went to the Mark McCord concert that was offered on Tuesday night. That was a fun experience. He is trying to bring his Bransom act to several small towns in Arkansas.
I think the highlight of our trip was going to Mountain View and the Ozark Folk Center. The park is open April-October and showcase a variety of regional crafts. There is also bluegrass music during the day and a concert at night. The town of Mountain View also had many shops to visit. On the weekends it livens up with visitors from all over to jam in various spots around the town. We truly enjoyed our time at Mountain View. It is about an hour from the resort.
Shopping is best at the WalMart in Clinton which is about 16 miles away. There is also an interesting group of stores that offer western furniture and accessories. We managed to spend a while there.
