This vacation home was great. The pictures represent the property well. It doesn't show the garage and rec room downstairs though. There is a nice foosball table and pool table down there. The house was clean and accommodating. There are a variety of games and many VHS/DVDs to choose from. The furniture is comfortable too. The stairs/pathway behind the home make it much easier & quicker to get to the beach, marina and rec center. It is a beautiful area to walk around. One morning we saw a deer walk across the road ahead of us. We explored some of the paths down by the lake. It was nice weather with a few brief sprinkles of rain. One day we went to Chimney Rock, about 25 min. from the resort. It took us about 3 hours to walk up to the top and then down to the falls. This is definitely a must see if you like the outdoors AND walking. There are stairs to climb at certain points but very sturdy and benches along the way. Take some bottled water with you. Another day we rented kayaks at in the resort and explored the big lake. Very Nice! There are embankments where you can get out and swim in the lake. Afterwards, we bought the best ice cream cones at the kayak rental shop. The resort has a nice beach area, clean and easy to get to. The pools are nice and we enjoyed the sauna and hot tub; good exercise equipment too. The lazy river is a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but perfect for children. We didn't have Wi-Fi due to problems with the service in that area during the time we were there. The house has dish TV so we did have access to television programs. Ingles grocery store is about 15 min from the house. We ate out once at the Lakeview restaurant. The glazed salmon and stuffed chicken were delicious. Overall, we had a wonderful time. It was like a home away from home. Comfortable, relaxing and fun. Dutch was very nice. When we had questions he was there to help us. I look forward to coming here again. I recommend this place highly. It is dog friendly too!
