I totally agree with your first tow sentences. I've never been drawn to resorts of any kind, but that's me. My first preference is to be out in the wild woods with nobody else around. Where I can sit in my lawn chair and watch the deer, coyotes, the birds, a bat or two at dusk. Listen to the water as rushes towards the sea, the frogs croaking, ducks and geese quacking and honking, a Douglas Squirrel scolding. Those thing are far more interesting to me than somebody fantasy shown on big screen. I don't go to movies and I don't watch fiction on television. There's maybe 2 or 3 fiction movies a year that I'll get on DVD maybe double that for non-fiction. Activities such as swimming nothing beats a nice mountain lake for swimming or fishing.
However, I'm glad there are those the prefer the resorts rather than over populate my hide aways, as the resort goers would not like it if every body went to the resorts so it was difficult to get in the prices doubled.
No matter what you choose, there are lots of options out there, enjoy.
