This 139-room resort is set in Wisconsin’s beautiful Northwoods area. Grand Lodge is within walking distance of Cedar Creek Mall and many local restaurants. The best thing about Grand Lodge is the onsite Logger’s Lading Waterpark. This water park hosts children’s pools, slides, spray toys, rides, dumping buckets and interactive activities. Try to tear your kids away from it!
Rooms at Grand Lodge feature large, flat-screen TV’s, high-speed Internet access, microwaves and refrigerators. Oversized loft rooms are family favorites, as they offer sleeper sofas and a second level. Select suites also contain a separate bedroom for Mom and Dad. Lumber Jack’s Bar & Grill is open from Tuesday through Saturday for all meals. Two arcades are also onsite, offering many games for kids. A weekend meal plan for breakfast and dinner buffet-style dining is available for an extra fee.

Our flight was canceled so we needed to stay overnight. The Sunday on-line rate for the Grand Lodge was competitive and we decided to ask for the rate at the desk. The AARP rate was lower than the on-line rate and we were offered a fireplace upgrade for $15 which we took ($115 for the night with 6 water parks passes). The ambiance is north woods and quite nice. The room was huge and the queen beds were queen sized. The TV was over the fireplace and a bit far away and at an odd viewing angle. The water park was fun for the kids (and adults). They do serve food on premises. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay again for sure.
Our family goes there every winter, love it every time. Staff is pleasant, clean rooms, awesome pool and game room area, food is great. Recommend this to all, specially in the winter. Movies on Saturdays, exercise room, closr to the store, movie theater and a great place to relax and escape winter. Never been there in the summer, we go to the Dells then.
