What was your favorite…
Resort/Condo Amenity:
We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for vacation. Friendly staff, beautiful condo and a lot of things to do. Kid friendly as well!

Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
We chose this because we’ve been to the area before and we were going to the Bristol NASCAR race.

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Definitely the Linville Caverns – so cool!

Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
The resort has it all and the staff is very friendly, so not really.
