Fodor's Review

A top pick with families, this rustic resort has condo-style and chalet-style accommodations with fully equipped kitchens, and the public areas include an indoor playground and a huge indoor water park. The water park has two waterslides, a swimming pool, a kiddie pool, two hot tubs, a sauna, and a steam room. Nearby is a fitness room where you can work out while watching the kids play. Outside are a basketball court and a barbecue area. The rooms range from bachelor suites for two people to one-bedroom lofts with separate kitchens and living rooms that accommodate six comfortably. Another option is an A-frame chalet with multiple bedrooms. The furnishings are dated, and the units aren't fancy, but the amenities make this a good choice for families. Most rooms have wood-burning fireplaces and balconies or patios.
