“"Great Getaway"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Stayed here the week of Mar 17 and enjoyed every minute. The Mountains were beautiful, after being in Florida the past year it was Great to see the Smokey Mountains. This facility was very clean and comfortable. The place was empty, due to the time of the year the resort was all ours. We had a 2 bed 2 bath lodge with a loft and fire place. The space was amazing, and the views of the moutains and lake were worth the 11 hour drive alone. We had read previous reviews concerning the distance to the closes store, so we stopped at INGLES grocery store which is just as you get into Lake Lure. Picked up groceries sinceI had read they provide you with all the kitchen amenties to cook, some fire wood and lots of wine. We saved time and money by cooking breakfast and dinner 3 nights, and we spent 1 night at the property bar for appetizers and drinks. The Pool, jacuzzi and sauna were very nice and the 7:30-10:30 am adult usage was nice to know. I know there area so we did a day trip to Asheville (Warren Wilson College) my buddies alma mater and Mount Mitchell. Clean, Realxing, Comfortable......

Room Tip: Get here early, if registration is still open they will to navigate the resort to get to your unit...

Recently stayed here for 5 nights with girls. It is a little far away from the town but it was nice to be away too. We found ourselves figuring out what was for dinner BEFORE we went back up the mountain to the rooms. There are lots of winding roads. This area would be gorgeous in fall.

The timeshare had wi-fi, great beds, but the decor is a bit outdated. It had everything we needed during our stay.

There were 4 of us and rented a 2 BR. & 2 bath loft in the Mountain loft area of Fairfield Mt. I'v never seen a place so clean and with all the eminities you would ever need. We stayed a week, and we were supplied extra towels & bath tissue, along with coffee, hot choc. paks, popcorn, salt & pepper & 2 paks of laundry detergent. There is a washer & dryer.The kitchen had ample supply of dishes, glasses etc., and all in very good condition. The small appliances were brand name and looked new. Beds were comforable as were pillows and we were very comfortable. We had a fire in the fireplace every night, you need to buy your own wood for it. (You can get that at Ingles) The view was awesome with lots of windows. 2 balconies. We were in #6. Chimney Rock is about 20 minutes or so away, and was well worth the trip to see. Ashville & Biltmore Estate was about an hour away and was worth the trip also. (You can save $10.00 a piece for Biltmore tickets if you buy them on line at least a week before you go.) The resort has an indoor & outdoor pool, you can rent movies at the spa area to watch in your room. A main supermarket (Ingles) is about 10 minutes away. Very curvey roads & nothing much close but a very beautiful location and very clean, nice & friendly resort. I would love to go back in the late spring or fall.

Room Tip: Mountain loft #6. A stand alone place.

My husband and I stayed in a 1 bdrm suit with the whirlpool. Went you walk in the living room area is there. When you have to go downstairs for the rest of the room, the first door will take you to the bathroom with shower, off of the bathroom is the whirlpool tub with a huge window and great view. Through the other door in that room is the bedroom area which was a good size with a convenient sink and counter space. There was a deck right off the bedroom so waking up the the views were great and even though it was on the golf course there were many trees for privacy. Through the double doors in the is the half kitchen with a table for 4 and laundry/pantry area off from the table. It really felt like home. The room was clean and well stocked with the essentials like utensils, etc.

The staff was friendly and nice, and everything was relatively close by. The amenities for the resort was about a mile away which was also shared with other resorts and residents within the Rumbling Bald. Lake activities were very limited while we were there even though there were nice sunny days.

However, we for plenty other things to do, like horseback riding at Cedar Creek RIding Stable with our guide Akeelie was great! Ziplining at Boulderline Adventure Programs with Tammy and Richard was the best experience! Chimney Rock Park is a must see!

All in all I had a great time and would go back again when more activities are in season. My only complaint would be our time at Luna Del Sol.

Room Tip: If you are getting a one bedroom the room with the whirlpool has 2 floors and seem to be bigger, how...

Stayed a week in February, 2013 to celebrate my wife's birthday and Valentines Day. We were looking forward to a relaxing getawy and that is exactly what we got. Still found plenty to do when we wanted to, but the best part was the quiet. The unit on Maple Ridge was perfect except for that strange thing called a wall phone that they decided to mount in the narrow walkway between the main hall and the kitchen. I think I knocked that phone off at least once a day!
I wish there were better accommodations for the fireplace, i.e. poker, and a decent grate, but we still enjoyed having it along with the TV and a nice movie selection at the rec center. The pool, sauna etc was all very nice as were the views around the facility. Must be awesome in the other 3 seasons.

I could go on and on, but I will mention that I thought it was odd that the office closes so early, but we had no problems with the check-in other than finding our unit. I must say the directions and signage were somewhat lacking and considering that is the first thing you experience when trying to check in, I think they should improve both. Looking forward to visiting in the future in other seasons, but wouldn't hesitate to come back in the winter.

We visited this somewhat remote resort located in Lake Lure, NC as a precursor to a concert at the Biltmore Estate. Having read the reviews, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. We were in a two bedroom condo in the Mountain Loft section on the periphery of the grounds furthest from the golf course. It was clean and functional with relatively new furnishings, although the kitchen, baths and carpet were showing their age. The master bedroom was only a queen size mattress, but it was comfortable. The guest bedroom had two twin beds. The condo itself had all that we needed to comfortably relax and enjoy the beautiful, secluded view - both from the living room and the spacious decks. Even though there were cabins on both sides, it felt like we were alone. The resort has a nice indoor pool, outdoor pools, fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, and golf course on site, as well a swimming and beach area on the lake with a variety of activities on the lake. The boys had a great time kayaking one afternoon. All this together with all the local attractions in the area make this a great place for both families and those looking for a quite, restful trip to get away from the hustle and bustle. It only takes about an hour to get to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, making this a feasible day trip. Although that is hardly enough time to enjoy all that Asheville has to offer. As long as you are not expecting a 5 star resort and are happy with clean and comfortable, but nevertheless dated accommodations then Wyndham fits the bill.

Room Tip: The cabins in the Mountain Loft Section are single level with few steps other than those to get to t...
