Barry and Laura Poole, a husband and wife team, have been business partners most of their 30-year relationship. Barry’s land development projects, starting 35 years ago in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, now span across the southeastern United States. Laura worked in sales and marketing most of her career, and spent more than 10 years in public education.
The couple have invested in many successful endeavors, none as important as raising their three children. Their children, now all adults, are often seen around the property mingling with owners and offering a fresh eye to their parents.
Barry and Laura have been in the luxury motorcoach development business since 2007. Beginning with their first resort, Deer Creek outside of Galax, Virginia to their current project in southwest Florida, the couple has extensive experience in luxury lot ownership and development.
“What we have learned from 10 years in the motorcoach development business brings together our past experiences in real estate, our personal transition to full-time-RVing and learning from all the visitors we meet,” says Barry.
Living on site in their own motorcoach, Barry and Laura have a unique perspective on how to make the most of each lot available at Thornton Creek. They offer every buyer more than 20 years of combined motorcoach lot development experience.
The expertise Barry and Laura have gained creates the optimum environment for you to feel comfortable purchasing your Thornton Creek lot!
Perfect size motorcoach resort. Large enough to have good amenities at an affordable annual rate, yet small enough that those amenities are not crowded. Very well landscaped and grounds are well kept. Best part of all…. smiling faces throughout the entire property. It’s easy to see that all the owners are happy with their decision to invest in a pad and/or casita at Thornton Creek Motorcoach Resort.
We travel the entire country year round and this is one of the best resorts we’ve visited.
If you are considering an awesome place to hang your hat full time or part time, this should be on your short list. Barry and Laura are top notch and NOT high pressure. They let the property speak for itself!
Thornton Creek Motorcoach Resort is an exciting place to be. Everyday, more coaches arrive to enjoy life on the lakes playing golf or just enjoying friends company.
Lovely place! The casitas are different and larger than usual. And the optional outside screened in area is large enough for a pool, outdoor kitchen etc.! A must see!
We came here in our RV for a free 3-night stay. This is a new Resort being developed for Motorcoaches. It has a nice clubhouse which has fitness center, pool, big screen tv, and free-wifi. The Resort has RV lots spread around 5 ponds. The developer and his wife stay on the grounds and are extremely nice as well very professional people. No pressure to purchase a lot and they make sure you enjoy your stay. This resort is outside of Punta Gorda, short drive to Ft Myers and approximately 90 miles from Tampa. We loved the area as well as the Resort. After the second day, we purchased a lot.
I could not have been more impressed with the property. The lots are much larger than anything we had previously looked at and the attention to build-out was amazing. Importantly, all the people we met there were fun and of similar professional background. What we found particularly amazing were the amount of people that have purchased from you that bought in your other parks as well. Thanks Barry and Laura for your gracious hospitality!
