I read a lot of not so good reviews about this resort. The very worst thing about this resort is finding it. From the Asheville airport you drive on very curvey roads. Speeds of 25 to 35MPH. The place you check in is no where near the units. It's very confusing to find the unit. Our unit was at the end of the line, so we made many wrong turns before we found it. It takes a couple of days before you can drive to it or leave from it with no problems. The only other complaint is that the check in people weren't very helpful. They answered your questions, but that's it. Most places we stay have employees that give suggestions about things to do or places to eat. We got nothing from them. There were no rodent or roach problems. The unit was large and very clean. The problem we have at every resort is that they never have non stick frying pans. Other than that, the kitchen was well stocked. The high outside windows needed cleaning very badly. They had so many cobwebs that it was hard to see out of them. Our unit was in the woods, so I'm sure it's hard to keep up with the cobwebs. The area has a lot of things to do. They have a 27 inch surplus of rain this year, so everything is so green. I would recommend chimney Rock state park. The elevator is broken so you have to walk up 491 steps to get to the top, but it was worth it. There are places to stop along the way. Then, of course, you have to walk down 491 steps. Then there is DuPont state park. You walk about 5 miles round trip to different water falls. Other reviewers said that there was no cell phone service. We always had service in our unit. Sometimes while driving, we would lose it for a couple of minutes, but I wouldn't complain about the service. We have Sprint, I don't know about any other companies service.
