How to describe The Yonahlossee Resort. It's basically a series of pleasant rentable condominiums in a pretty valley near but not quite in Blowing Rock and Boone. Well, it's not quite a resort either having minimal facilities (a weight room) with no staff to speak of on the premises. .The condos are small but efficient with a very small but comfortable bedroom, a living-dining,-kitchen room with flat screened TV, couch, dining table seating 4 and a small but quite adequate kitchen.The rental agency has a 24 hr phone number but cell phones, at least AT&T service, doesn't work at this location, and the privately owned condo phone couldn't be used. When a storm wiped out the wifi connection the 1st night we were there we were basically isolated.
So what does this mean to the traveler. Well, if you're familiar with area, know where you want to go and do and eat and don't need any hand holding, this place works fine. However, if you want a resort with activities, advice on neighborhood restaurants and don't want to have to drive 6 miles if you've forgotten to buy a loaf of bread, or you like to wake up and walk to the local bakery or breakfast spot, look elsewhere.
