8.4.Very Good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It’s a lovely place to stay. Staff is super friendly and super conveniently located (short drive to Sugar Mountain, supermarket, and Downtown Banner Elk). The pool is currently closed for renovations though, which was one of the reasons we booked here in the first place. But other than that it totally exceeded our expectations.

  • 4.0.Fair

    It looked so nice online. They said there was a heated indoor pool, a hot tub, free wi-fi... the day before we left we got a call saying they didn't have any of those things. It felt like we got lured in by false advertising. By then it was too late to change our plans. Unit was nice, but without amenities, it felt way overpriced.

    This place is great with a child. Pool, mini golf, tennis, firepit with s’mores, paddle boats, arts and crafts. AND they have Covid restrictions and sanitizing dialed in.

    Delayed check-in

    Delayed check-in of 1 3/4 hours after check-in time. Facility and grounds were well maintained. Rooms were well appointed, comfortable, and in good condition. Staff were friendly, helpful, and courteous. Good location! I will consider staying here again.
