We have enjoyed this property for years. At check in however, we have gotten to the point where we refuse getting the Welcome Package as we are concerned about being pressured into sales meetings, under the guise of what gifts are given for a short commitment of time. If the pressure tactics have changed, we have not been willing to find out. That has been our only concern about staying on this property.

We had a lot of activities planned off the property but we made sure to use the pool (a little crowded) and basketball and racquetball court. We loved the the property and enjoyed seeing the wildlife. We enjoyed the restaurant/grill (even with a vegetarian member). My older son and i enjoyed the paranormal tour at the Manor house with David Flowers. The rooms were clean and roomy and i was able to make breakfast in the well equipped kitchen and keep up with laundry. And the front desk and security was very helpful at 2am when a non life threatening medical emergency arose. We were very happy with our visit and could have stayed longer.
