We stayed with a friend who should have told us that mixed race families would not be made welcome. We were questioned on the beach every time we went - it is a private beach but our host pays the fees and we were with them all three times. The best part was when the person referred to my daughter as "that little colored girl".
On the first day we looked in the local real estate office - we are thinking of buying a vacation home in the mountains. While browsing a local homeowner kept repeating how expensive it was to own property there, the implication was that we could not afford to own there- we can. The quote in the title is from the husband of that homeowner, his only comment to the unsolicited conversation. There is very clearly a different standard for those who are visiting as opposed to owning; we were asked where we were staying numerous times every day- not at all in a friendly manner.
All the other reviews speak of Eagles Mere being unspoiled, historic and quaint. That is clearly a subtext that diversity there is also stuck in the past.
