Nice and relaxing place to stay. Condo was very clean and spacious. Good place to get away and relax. Had condo overlooking lake and easy walk to swimming pool. Gym looked very nice. There is a grocery store just outside of entrance that is very well stocked and wasn't any higher than WalMart. Check in was a breeze.

We just returned from a very relaxing week at the above resort. We stayed in a beautifully updated 1 BR condo at the lake. The condo was spacious and very clean. A lovely home away from home. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. There is unfortunately no internet connection in the unit, otherwise I would give this resort a 5. If you need a week to relax and enjoy the beautiful Ozarks I would hihghly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We stayed at Hamilton Cove #29

This past week has been a week of rest, down-home relaxation and outdoor exploration. We arrived on a Saturday evening and we're greeted by the very friendly front-desk staff. They informed us of the events of the week and let us know their own favorite things to do. There are plenty of walking and hiking trails to explore with young children as well as older people. The community seems to cater mostly to the senior age, but they are very welcoming to all age families. Our young family was welcomed in all establishments. There are lots of local restaurants open at different times of the day and week, and the beautiful lake is nearby to explore as well. The room provided everything we needed, down to the salt and pepper for our scrambled eggs. It was nice to have a grocery store on the property, and everything was within a 2-5 minute drive.

I would have given it a 5, but no internet connection in the units. We stayed in a 2-bedroom in the Fairways section. One level unit with a deck that looked out to the golf course. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Full kitchen. Washer & dryer. And a whirlpool tub in the master bath that is big enough to have a small party in! Greer's Ferry Lake is close by, and the resort offers a marina, bowling alley, pools, miniature golf, etc. The countryside in the area is just beautiful. Great place to go to see beautiful fall foliage. The resort, which is located in the town of Fairfield Bay, also has several restaurants within the complex and there is a grocery store just off the property. We ate at Grumpy's Restaurant and the prices were very reasonable.

Spent Labor Day weekend 2013 at Wyndham at Fairfield Bay and was greatly disappointed. Something everyone needs to know BEFORE going to Fairfield Bay - It is a not your typical timeshare or resort area. The entire community of Fairfield Bay, including Wyndham Fairfield Bay, is a resort/retirement village that was established in 1966. As a result, it is VERY spread out (our unit was 3 miles from the check-in) and is intermixed with the full-time residential areas.

The unit itself was nice, except the weird master whirlpool/shower tub (in order to take a shower, it was a hand held shower while standing in the whirlpool tub!). The ammenities, quite frankly, suck. There was a pool within easy walking distance from our unit located in Hamilton Cove, but no hot tub. We drove all around the various Wyndham timeshare groupings and not a single one had a hot tub. Mountain Meadows did not even have a pool within walking distance. If you do stay here, if you have young children - Cliffside area would be your best area to stay as the pool had Zero entry and fun area for little kids. The only hot tub was located at the Fitness Center and was indoors (and the fitness center is open to the entire community of Fairfield Bay).

In order to check out movies or games, you do so at various business locations within the community and there is a fee even to check out a game. The restaurants, marina, and everything is part of the community. The marina was an absolute madhouse and you is not easily accessible when pulling a boat. The "swim beach" was right next to the boat launch (which is a do not swim area where I am from due to the oil, etc from the boats) and the "beach" was literally sand thrown on the asphalt of part of the road!

We tried to go out to Sugar Loaf Mountain, an island on the lake. When we contacted the marina to book the ferry, we found out that the ferry does not run on the weekends - not even Labor Day Weekend! How absurd! In all the literature we were given at check-in, other than the Fitness Center schedule everything was for stuff to do at least 1-hour drive away. We went to the front desk to ask what there was to do in the area and was directed to places at least a hour away and nothing worth driving at least 2-hours round trip for (i.e. a trading post, people that show up on a courthouse lawn and sing, etc.)

Luckily I had found a few things to do online in the area that could keep us busy for 1 day, the log cabin museum, the Indian Rock House Cave, and 3 totem poles that were made by local artisan woodcarvers. These were all right in Fairfield Bay, but not listed at all in the literature provided to us or mentioned by the front desk when we inquired about things to do in the area. Basically, unless you have a boat with you or are into golfing or hiking there is nothing to do here.

Room Tip: Hamilton Cove if just adults in group. Cliffside if traveling with young children or enjoy tennis...

Probably shouldn't write this review so it doesn't get crowded, but this was a tremendous vacation spot for a week. The resort is actually part of Fairfield Glade which is a 8000 home development near Crossville, TN. There is so much activity to do daily, you can be as busy as you want. There is a small mall with a couple of excellent restaurants, a Kroger convenience store (really?, yep) and other shops.
There are 5 18 hole golf courses here as well as numerous lakes and horse stables! The 2 bedroom unit we had was excellent and clean with no maintenance issues! We'll be back again and again!

This timeshare resort caters for the more senior community and does it very well. The staff could not be more nice or helpful. The rooms, although dated, were very well maintained and comfortable, with modern appliances. Our "kitchenette" had parquet floors that brought back memories when there was actually wood on the floors instead of laminate.

What's unique Fairfield Bay is that it's a community, not a town. There's activities to do every day. The only disappointing thing was that there were no canoe, paddleboat, kayaks to rent.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Mountain Ridge section have a secluded, woodsy view.
