Thanks! I look forward to reading about your findings! I should have asked Pete at the Innkeepers Club about it, but I didn't realize how much I enjoyed the smell until I got home!
Did someone say Jackie and Pete? Seriously, they (and the other CL CMs) are a big part of our decision to return to BWI CL in January. I could go on and on about how Jackie goes above and beyond and how Pete is one of the nicest guys ever. We're busy getting ready for our cruise next month, planning for MNSSHP in October, and trying to keep up with other threads on the board, but I need to get back over here again! Scott, please let Jackie know that the three "pirates" from last August are returning soon!

Pretty sweet if you ask me (or should I say "suite"...ya know since it's a hotel......anyone?).

ANYWAY...
I would assume that if you're staying in a standard, that is a non-Club Level room, and you've booked a water view, then by George, you're going to be facing the Boardwalk.

The reason I mention non-Club Level, is that standard Club Level rooms can either face the (lovely) inner courtyards/quiet pool or they can face the Boardwalk. It's really a roll of the dice. In fact....and I probably shouldn't breathe this....I'm surprised Disney hasn't separated the Club Level views to charge more for the ones overlooking the Boardwalk.
A WV can also be located on the side rooms looking over the grassy area near the porch. We had booked a WV room the last time we stayed and almost received one of those rooms (we politely asked if we could be on the BW instead) and the Manager explained this to us - as long as you can see the water, even by turning your head, it's a water view lol.

Just wondering if there is anywhere close to the quiet pool on the Inn side to refill our mugs?

We loved overlooking the Village Green area since we could still see the water/dock/boats and the Boardwalk and performers plus it was a tad quieter than being directly on the BW. We requested to overlook the Village Green in Nov/ Dec it will be nice to look out and see the Christmas Tree they place there

In hindsight, I wish we had stayed with that room - we were moved to one right on the BW and the seagulls pooped all over it daily - the poor maintenance people were up there cleaning it every morning, but by late afternoon, full again! We couldn't even sit out there. Sometimes you are just better sticking with whatcha get :-)

This morning we switched from SSR 2BR (which I found I wasn't looking forward to nor were my girls) to a garden cottage at BWI. I'm excited about the trip again! Club level in a resort area we love.

im staying CL in a cottage in march. would love to hear what you think of it after your stay! have fun!!

Well hello everyone! First post! Anyway I have a quick question, we are leaving for BWV in a week and I am curious about the coffee maker in the room. We have a one bedroom villa. Is it a generic Mr coffee style machine or a Keurig that uses the special cups?

Thanks in advance!

I believe they are just generic simple coffee makers. I will certainly be packing extra filters for our trip and some take away cups so we can just make our own coffee in the morning save money and time!!!

WELCOME TO THE DIS

So sorry to hear you had seagull issues. Oh that would not be good at all we really enjoy the balcony in fact we ordered room service Breakfast our last morning and ate out on the balcony which might not have been possible if there were seagulls around

Will keep that in mind when we go to check in.
