Serenity, solitude, spectacular scenery, serpentine roads.
As others have mentioned, these are nice open units with the MBR, including its own deck, on the lower level with the master bath and jacuzzi. A fireplace and two more decks are on the main level along with a decently equipped kitchen, living area with fireplace, the second BR with two double beds, and the second bath. You could see bits of water through the trees although it would be a stretch to say it was a "lake view."
The TV in the living area was a 27" regular TV, whereas many timeshares are upgrading to flat panels. The fireplace is for Duraflame logs only.
Our main complaint was with housekeeping. The coffee pot was filthy and had to be scrubbed. I trapped a 1-1/2" roach under the teakettle and we found a dead roach along the picture window. (Folks at the reception area said they were probably "wood roaches" that "come in the mulch" and reminded us that we were in the woods, a fact that can hardly escape one's notice.) Quite a few silverfish. The unit really needed a deep cleaning.
There is nothing nearby. There are two restaurants across from each other but hours are a bit erratic and another a couple of miles away under a 7-11 type store. There are far more real estate offices than commercial establishments. Golf courses were very pretty and must have been nice because there were golfers on the course the entire time, undeterred by near-constant rain, which kept us from doing much in the way of sightseeing.
Do some grocery shopping before you get there. Plan on doing breakfast and maybe lunch in and plan on some driving for dinner unless you are content with the few places in the resort.

This was a suprise! We had a very large and comfortable unit that was nestled in the trees. The golfing and pools were great as was the surrounding activites. The waterfront area had lots to do including jet ski, water ski and our personal favorite--- tubing! The master bedroom was huge with a nice whirlpool bath. The master was on the lower level which we found to be great and quite. Kitchen family/dining area was open and large enough for a family of 6 with a fieplace and 2 decks.
We are not golfers but have 4 kids and they had a great time- mini golf, pools, lake, fireworks and good resturaunts- What else do you need?

The units were clean and quiet. Very spacious and well stocked.
The resort is beautiful, but definitely more geared for retired golfers. Our visit was the last week of October when the leaves are turning colors and the entire area is just gorgeous but the resort itself does not have a lot to offer families with kids - the outdoor pool and lazy river are closed, the indoor pool as well as the mini golf course require adult supervision for anyone under 16 (our kids are 13 & 16). There is no playground and none of these amenities are within walking distance of the units.
We did enjoy the little wine tour that they offer.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay but we probably would not return with kids.

One of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. The location is superb, the views are outstanding. From mountain trail hiking to fishing - it's tops.

Very nice townhomes that were amid lovely scenery. We were on the golf course and had a mountain overlooking us on the left. We had a total of 7 people for a couple of days, and it was a LITTLE tight, but enough room that we didn't walk all over one another. If you want peace and quiet, this is definately the place for you! On the down side, there were cob webs in the corners (housekeeping was not quite up to par) and you have to drive to get anywhere - even to use the on-site facilities. Be forewarned - even to go to the closest Winn Dixie for groceries was 30 miles away, but took one hour to get there. Chimney Rock was almost as long, and Asheville was almost 1 1/2 hours. If you plan on traveling, give yourself PLENTY of time to get there, as the twisty-turvy roads are narrow and potentially dangerous. My advice: stop before you get off the Interstate to get your shopping done, then make no other plans but to chill out the rest of the week! And take the Boat Tour onsite at Fairfied - and take it as soon as you get there, You will appreciate the scenery a little more!
