Are there any reviews about this resort? I would like to find out more than I can on the Interval site or the Welk site and hear from someone who has actually stayed there or seen the 2 bedroom villa and resort in person. I would love to see a floor plan of the two bedroom villa. I couldn't find this resort on the review section of TUG under the II code or the name. Am I missing something? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

I just walked through the model unit this morning. WOW! All two bedroom units are lockouts. They have a back woods feel to them, a little like Big Cedar. Both sides have flat panel TV's. The master bedroom has a gas fireplace open on three sides between the bed and the jacuzzi. The shower has 3 nozzels. The salesman did give me some line about II giving extra weeks for the units cince they are "premier" units. When I asked why no TS's in Branson traded well he changed subjects. They are nice though. Down side is no amenities (pools). I assume something is planned but he did not talk about that.

Thanks CMVer! Did they say whether these trade thru floating points or by week? I was surprised that they don't have a pool area yet? I thought I saw that several buildings are already built when I was trying to find it via google maps (not sure if I got the right spot)? Was a club house built or planned?

We own another TS in Branson and have had good experience with exchanges so I can't complain about owning in the Branson area. Since this one is a Premier resort, I would think it would trade as good as other Premiers. Have you had trouble with a trade? I think the hardest part in trading is that the place you want to go has to have owners that "don't want to use their units" and if it is a popular spot, they have bought their TS to use it and not exchange.

Thanks for any other info you might be able to share. I don't know where to find more info since the Welk site and II site are rather limited in what they reveal.

I thought they had started the Welk timeshares a couple of years ago when we drove by. All those buildings are the hotel. There are only maybe 3 timeshare buildings and they are all 2 floor-no elevators. When I asked about an indoor pool he said something about no pool but then just kept on going.

Our Wisconsin weeks trade very well and a white week there will usually pull about the same as our gold crown/5 star Branson red week. That's ok; we only wanted it to use.

Tomorrow I want to go see Long Creek (Bluegreen).

Any body else been at this resort lately? I'm interested in hearing about the new pool area in detail and anything else you can report? Thanks!

I booked into this resort way last year; staying a week at Bent Creek in Gatlinburg and then on to Branson from TN. I booked with Diamond points thru II and had no trouble getting into the resort. Because I wanted a specific week (tacked on to Gatlinburg) this was open, it looked beautiful in the "site" picture so grabbed it. We are taking friends so the lockout will be great. I am surprised there are no reviews on TUG.
