We're looking forward to staying at FQ during our upcoming trip. Any suggestions for which building to request?

We have been trying to decide where to stay for our 2013 trip and after looking at these pics we have picked POFQ!

We have stayed in many different buildings but this past Christmas we requested a river view and ended up in Bldg 6 overlooking the campfire and the river. It was perfect. Close enough to everything but far enough away that things were very peaceful. I was worried that the smoke from the campfire might bother us but it wasn't an issue at all. My daughter loved being able to run down and catch the campfire then walk over to the yard where the movies were held. I've also stayed in a room overlooking the pool and wasn't as happy there as I was overlooking the river.

Depends on what features you are looking for - 4 is close to the main building and bus stop, 5 and 2 are closest to the pool, 1 and 7 are the most remote if you prefer peace and quiet, with 6 a nice compromise between everything. None are a very long walk to anywhere though, it's a very compact resort.

You'll probably get more responses in the main POFQ FAQ thread rather than this photos thread though.

Thanks for so much for the responses- I'll try the other thread as well.

Some from our December trip. We visited FQ as a prospective resort for our next trip. The DW really liked it which means we will be staying there in the future.

And for today a standard shot, but it's always a nice view. Well, it will be again when the current maintenance work in the middle is completed anyway.
