Drove over from Salem Oregon today. This is a two day stop over on the way to West Yellowstone. The folks at the front desk very helpful and friendly. We have a two bedroom unit. It is hugh. Had a beer on the deck. Ate dinner while watching sunset. Gorgeous views. A few days ago Patti read a couple reviews from Worldmark folks. People complained about the 9.6 mile drive from the freeway and what a horrible drive it was. They obviously have never driven Hwy 1 on the north California Coast or the Road to Hana on Maui. The drive in today had lots of curves and you probably will stay under 35 MPH but other than that it was a beautiful drive.

Nice comparison...having previously driven these routes.

Road to Hana is almost an autobahn... you need to drive to Julia's for banana bread next time in Maui. Long sections have two way traffic on a one lane road, with drop-offs to the side. Or better yet, just drive in Ireland... the roads there are like the road to Julia's... except the speed limit is 100 KM/hr. So your approach speed is 200 KM/hr to opposing traffic on a single lane road.

Agreed. The drive was not even half as bad as some make it out to be. Even at night. And was very pretty during daylight.

The drive to Grand Lakes (Afton, OK) is very similar in length and twists/turns.

I have driven in Wales and Ireland. I have a picture of me standing in the middle of a road in Wales and my arms almost stretch completely across the Road. It was a two way road that even large lorries drove 40 mph. The Road to Hana reminds me of the Hawaiian method of turning a one way road into a two way road -- simply paint an ocassional line down the center.

Ah, the ubiquitous "single track" in the vernacular of the Isles.

I wouldn't mind the drive so much if there was something to do once you get to the resort but there is nothing except to look at the water.

Or Hwy 50 to WM SouthShore. I have driven all 3. I would consider renting a sports car for the Road to Hana. :twisted:

Just made an overnight stop at Arrow Point and I probably would not return. As an older adult with no children and not a boater or hiker this is not a place that offers much for me. The drive is not bad, but I thought I would be closer to the town whose name I can't spell correctly, LOL. The condo was beautiful and spacious, but probably because some of these condos are privately owned, which is a concept that I don't especially care for. I went on to Discovery Bay and I loved it. Unfortunately I only had two nights there, but I would love to return and spend time going through the small towns near by. I don't mean to be a killjoy, but if your kind of hiking is in the city through shops, this might not be the place for you.

We only use Arrow Point as a stop over on our way to and from Yellowstone.
