Very calming spot to relax.
We spent a week here with no agenda, no place to be, no time to be there. The section we stayed in was one of the older portion of the resort so it had a somewhat more rustic feel the others, however, this did noting to take away from the quality of our stay. Spent many hours on the back porch reaing and enjoting the peace and quiet of the surrounding woods. The resorrt itself was not very crowded during our time here, and even the layout extended to increase the privacy. We would recommend this resort to anyone.
Nice Quiet Place
Clean roomy cottage, 2 bedrooms 2 double beds. Full kitchen Washer dryer. Nice place to stay. Screened back porch to sit to watch the sunset. Fireplace and dvd,tv in all rooms. Plenty parking. Pool and gym at the community center.
Wonderful winter vacation!
Stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath condo high up on the mountain. Everything new and in great shape. Complete kitchen, appliances, even wine glasses. Enough space to sleep 8 but we only had 7 for a girls ski getaway. King size master bedroom had a jacuzzi as well as a washer and dryer. We didn't have time for any clothes washing but the dishwasher was very useful. Our second year to visit here but still haven't had time to enjoy the indoor pool or activities.
Do NOT STAY at SHAWNEE! It was HORRIBLE!!
My son and his wife are into timeshares and points with WYNDHAM and took us to the Poconos on Dec. 22nd thru the 26th. I felt bad for them, because they did NOT get what they requested. Suppose to have a king size bed, a jetted tub, and fireplace. They did get the fireplace but that was the extent of it. The unit at SHAWNEE was shabby, and that's just for starters. I've been to rustic places, but this was not kept up, and not clean. My bathtub had hairs on the edge of the tub, which I left put during my entire stay. I use to do housekeeping for Resort Quest at the Outer Banks of NC, and I can tell you from experience that a housekeeper should of seen that hair and never left it if she cleaned the unit. The table was sagging in the middle and we were worried that it would collapse while we were eating. My son took a picture of it. We ran out of HOT water. Yes, you read correctly. Our hot water heater was not adequate for the unit. Come on people, get it together. I have stayed at Super 8 Motels that never ran out of HOT water. When my DIL was using the washer, my adult daughter had to get out of the shower because there was no HOT water. While at the indoor pool, I was in the hot tub, I saw a BIG WAD of BLACK hair float by. DiSGUSTING. Also, after a certain time, no one is at the front desk, so if you have a problem or issue, you have to call SECURITY. I have never heard of such a thing in my life. I am out of my allowed characters. DON'T stay at SHAWNEE whatever you do!!!!!!
Outdated and awkward layout
We had our wedding nearby and booked several rooms here as overflow from our venue. First we had to change rooms twice due to cleanliness issues in the room. This presents a problem not only in the cleanliness, but the units we had were approx a mile away from the check in area, so extra time spent going back and forth getting things resolved. The unit was outdated, but overall functional. Next, remember this is a timeshare resort, so there is the pressure to sit through their sales presentation even though we booked as hotel guests.
