Units in the area are comfortable and large, many are rustic with older style furnishings. Most units have many steps leading to them on the outside with additional stairs inside. Because resorts reserve the right to reassign guests to a like-type unit, we are unable to guarantee unit views and location.
The Shawnee Resort encompasses a large expanse of property. It may be necessary to drive to many "on-site" amenities.
