“Disappointed but functional”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

My husband and I returned this weekend from the Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Mountains. I have to say, being Wyndham members, we were disappointed in the lodging. I reserved a 1 bedroom condo. The unit was old and very out-of-date. This was a duplex and the walls were paper thin. You could easily hear the next-door neighbors. There was not a lot to do. Apparently this resort was "connected" to another resort and we had free use of its facilities. We did go over and eat at the Lakeview Restaurant which was excellent but that's another review. The wi-fi , though offered was very poor and we ended putting up our kindles which was probably a good thing. The staff was very cordial and apparently they were "making do" with what they had. I try to be fair....but I felt the website was deceiving and we didn't receive what I was expecting. The unit was very clean and this would have been a great place to leave in the morning and come back in the evening....however to try and stay and enjoy the resort just would not have been in the cards.

Room Tip: This resort has units in two areas.....try to get one in the Maple Ridge area as opposed to the area...

Spent a rainy week here in a poorly designed two bedroom on Maple Ridge. Service desk closed early on the rainy evening we arrived - glad it wasn't too dark to find our condo. Not much to do here but relax or drive to explore, primarily Ashville. Lots of driving on rural, winding roads.
Internet service was too poor to use effectively. Cell phone service with Verizon just as poor.
If you don't golf but want to do outdoor activities plan to do some driving.
Bright spot was Luna Del Sol restaurant - great food and service.

Even though the weather was wet and chilly, it was still a great weekend. The room was right off the Apple Valley golf course, very clean and off the beaten path.
It was a single room condo, with a small shower and a huge bathtub/jacuzzi. The room had a small kitchen and dining area combined and upstairs was a small and very comfortable living room... Made it nice to enjoy coffee and not wake up the baby.
Played a round of golf at Rumbling Bald Golf course.. The second course on the resort. Great course, a bit narrow but very fun and challenging to play. Super easy to get a tee time and the price was no different than my normal course. Not to mention the 15th green is where the filmed a scene in Dirty Dancing.
Highly recommend this resort and my wife and I are already planning our next trip.

This is a VERY quiet place especially in the spring. A quick stop to check in. She was very informative on the area, places to dine and maps. We stayed in Unit 16 – BE Prepared! –This is a flight of 27 steps down with one landing in between, so is Unit 17. The front desk never asked if this would be a problem or if something else was available. Great view of the lake but the trek up and down the steps is not for the elderly or physically challenged or anyone with difficulty with stairs. This is a 2 bed and 2 bath (one tub and one shower stall) with a loft via a spiral staircase. Kitchen was adequate with everything you need. One King bed, 2 twin beds and 2 sofa pull outs. The master bedroom did not have any night stands. The king bed, which was very comfortable, takes up the majority of the master bedroom, there is a dresser. The large flat screen in the living room was great; however, the TV’s in the bedroom are old and outdated. Free AT&T Wi-Fi which was very fast. It has a stackable washer/dryer which worked well. Outside maintenance was needed. The large windows in the living room were covered with spider webs and the 27 stairs were not lit at night. We tried to call maintenance several times but continued to get a busy signal on the weekend. We were able to reach them on Monday and the lights were fixed promptly.
We had pizza one evening at Legends, food was just ok but service (Angelia) was great! It is really a very quiet and relaxing springtime place not much to do since it is early season. Most things are still closed for the winter. It is a great golf location.

Room Tip: If you have physical limitations be sure to notify them when reserving and checking in.

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.
