Remember customer service and the intamacy of a "family" resort? The Country Place Resort will remind you. The staff is so accomodating but blend right in with the guests so it has a very friendly environment with a service emphasis on you. The staff comes in our their day off because they enjoy their job and enjoy the guests. This is every aspect of the staff. The wait staff; the front desk; the bartenders; housekeeping and ESPECIALLY the activities staff (which seams to include everybody).
Food -GREAT! It tasted like true home cooking with fresh ingredients and a different dinner menu every night.
Rooms - GREAT! Very roomy. Cleaned every day, to the extent that it smells clean, not just a quick vacuum. 2 tv's. DVD player, with movies at the front desk. I recommend the family suite. Very comfortable beds.
Water park -GREAT! Catered towards the kids, but fast enough for the adults and NO crowds, even when it was "crowded". Try Wild Water West, its hidden but guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again. Come and go as you please as your room is 5 minutes away from anywhere in the park. But they also have a private heated pool for guests only, which is a lot fun and very warm.
Grounds -GREAT! A pond where you are guaranteed to catch a fish (yes, guaranteed). Country like feel, without being in the middle of nowhere. No limitations or restrictions like you would get at most hotels/resorts. Bouncy house every night. Ball field. 3 playgrounds. Basketball courts. Big enough to play everything, but small enough where you can always see the kids and let them be a little independant.
Activities -GREAT! There is an activity every night. BUT there are also unscheduled activities, just ask can we get a softball game; kickball game; basketball game; etc, and they will round up as many guests and/or staff as possible and try to get one going.
Best part is they only have apx 24 rooms, so it can never get crowded and therefore it wont lose the intamate feel.
