Editor’s Review of Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg

The Great Wolf Lodge, Williamsburg, is a log-sided Northwood's-style resort, tucked in a forest of towering pines, just three miles from Colonial Williamsburg. The property opened in March 2005, and in less than a year earned TripAdvisor's 2005 Travelers' Choice Award, ranking first in the category of "Top 10 Best Pools in the U.S."

The lodge did so well that 104 new suites were added in 2007 (for a total of 405). Howlin' Tornado, a super-fast water slide with a funnel was added in 2006 and is one of the amenities that differentiates Great Wolf's Williamsburg property form its Poconos Mountains location.

The Williamsburg resort is owned and managed by Great Wolf Resorts, Inc., the largest owner, operator and developer
... more in the United States of indoor water park resorts. The company currently has 12 properties in the U.S. and Canada that cater to families with children ranging in age from 2 to 14. And cater to them they do. A few steps in to lobby, with its massive stone fireplace, comfy chairs, and staging area with faux animals and trees with faces, and our boys could barely stand in line long enough to check-in. Friends joined us for the weekend's stay, and the five children between us (ranging in age from 6 to 11) were begging to explore.

    Went for a moms and kids getaway during the school week- gasp! Two years later, after countless trips to beaches, sailing in FL and NYE in Dominican, kids still say it was their favorite place. SMH but some things are just best ...

    Rooms

    There are 10 different room configurations to choose from, including oversized rooms with lofts to three kid-themed suites: KidKamp, Wolf Den and KidCabin, each of which are designed for families with younger children. Families can also choose to stay in one of 10 QuestMaster Suites, where children's MagiQuest wands can manipulate magic chests, lamps, and stars. A stay in these suites includes two wands, and allows guests to gain points playing the game in their suite as well as throughout the resort.

    While a particular room assignment cannot be guaranteed, you can have the reservation agent note a preference for a room overlooking the outdoor pool, or one at the end of a hallway far away from kids playing MagiQuest, and therefore quieter for daytime nappers. Since the resort is a smoke-free facility, all rooms are non-smoking.

    Note: Guests are given wristbands instead of room-keys. One type of band (for parents and older kids) opens guest room doors and allows for charging privileges, while the one given to children does not. Be sure to ask for the adult type of band at check-in for children who will be coming and going from the room on their own.
