My whole family--50-ish adults and teens of 13 and 15--loved the mountain coaster. It says something that it was raining at the time, and no one remembers that; they just remember having fun.

Sounds like you're looking to stay at the hotel. I would check directly with them. However, there is also the option of renting a condo or house through Railey Mountain Lake Vacations, which I would recommend exploring
