My wife and I stayed in one of the time-share units in early May, and were impressed. The two bedroom, 2.5 bath lake-view unit with spacious living area and large fully-screened lanai, could easily sleep six, and potentially another two in a sofa-bed in the living area. The unit was clean and well-equipped, and the location was quiet.
The size of the gated-community Fairfield Plantation was a surprise - we had not expected it to be so big; there are about 3000 permanent residents, and the time-share facilities are only a small part of the overall property. Staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful.
There is a golf-course in the community, with well-priced green fees. There are also tennis courts, but we didn't look into using these. The lake is very attractive; unfortunately, unless you bring your own boat, you cannot venture onto the water as there is no boat-rental facility.
While there is a restaurant in the community, we did not try it. Instead we purchased food at "local" stores (about 6 miles from the resort) to dine in, or ate at "local" restaurants in Villa Rica, Carrolton and Newnan - Gabe's Downtown, J&W BBQ, Sprayberry's BBQ, and Espresso Lane.
This part of Georgia is rural and quiet (although Atlanta is only about 30-45 minutes away), and so a great place to sit back and relax, and sample small-town, friendly Georgia if you are so inclined. Definitely a place to revisit.
