Reviewed 23 August 2016

Let me start by saying that every staff member I dealt with was Professional, courteous, and helpful. Unfortunately the suites need a MAJOR overhaul apparently they began building this resort in the 60's and haven't kept up on the remodeling. The property and the area are beautiful and the tree adventures and zip line were awesome.

Growing up I use to come to Fernwood Resort a lot bc my parents had timeshare at this location. Which is a nightmare so don't buy any timeshare. Thank goodness their contract is over. We always had a great time and the rooms were always nice and super clean with lots to do. So we wanted to go to the...

This is a major bait and switch. The website makes this resort appear modern and well maintained, but the villa we were assigned was filthy, smelly, and neglected. There had clearly been smokers in the rooms. The carpet was stained. The layout was odd because the two bedrooms are on the ground floor (downstairs from the front doorway), and the...

I sincerely apologize that you were disappointed with your stay and for the concerns you reported in your comments. I have asked our Executive Housekeeper to try and determine the villa in which you checked into for a thorough inspection and to investigate why these issues were not addressed prior to the villa being released for check in.

This is the second year we stayed. The 2 bdrm loft unit was perfect for 6 of us. The beds are doubles not queens but comfortable. Unit was rundown, peeling wallpaper, very stained rug, missing knobs on the dresser. The couch and drapes are dated and smelled a bit musty. TV in living room did not work and bedrooms were...

Our 2-bedroom suite was clean, spacious and adequate for four adults with a great location. It was cheaply decorated and could use some simple updating - it was definitely not luxurious by any means. The focus of our visit was the aerial ropes course which was very, very good - great fun and one of the simpler courses we've done....
