mountain thunder, blue sky or river mountain

I finally found a 2br condo on VRBO for Mountain Thunder. However, I also found a 2br condo for the same price at Blue Sky and a 1br at River Mountain for $80 less a night. Walking distance, how far is each of these to main street? I looked at the map and it makes everything look more spread out than what it is. If money wasn't the main goal, which of these is the most luxurious?

Blue Sky & Mtn Thunder

River Mtn. Lodge

RML is a nice place but built in 1984 so in terms of sheer luxury, it cannot compare to places just built.

Main St. is not a far walk for all.

RML- real close- 1 minute

Mtn. Thunder- 4-5 minutes

Blue Sky- 7-9 minutes

Thanks so much Matt. You have been so helpful. Although I don't know you, I value your opinion. You are a wealth of knowledge. So I will try to decide tonight between Mountain Thunder and Blue Sky since they are the same price. Do you know if both are a flat walk or do we have to walk uphill? Normally I'm not this crazy about lodging choices but this is the first time hubby and I will have a vacation without our son and I want it to be perfect. A bad room/location for 8 nights can make for a miserable vacation. Thanks again.

Mtn. Thunder is a flat walk to Main St.

Blue Sky is a downhill walk for a few minutes then flat... thus making the return trip uphill at the end.
