This fifty-two-hundred-acre resort with views over the Blue Ridge Mountains is characteristic of the type of so-called four-season resorts developed in the late twentieth century in picturesque locales. It includes more than two thousand condominiums, one thousand private houses, six hotels, a large ski area, two golf courses, recreation centers, swimming pools, a large water park, and the commercial amenities typical of a suburban community. The residential buildings are clustered and feature gray or light-colored siding and green roofs to give the resort a unified appearance.
