Again, our unit in building 5 was outstanding, large and with the best view.
HOWEVER....it was over the pool. The pool was always occupied after 10pm with adults and children yelling. Each night there were still people in the pool until after 10:30pm. I would like to see the staff monitor the pools after closing time.
Grand Timber Lodge was a great place to stay! All the amenities you could want! Even had a basketball court (small and outside) for our teenage sons. The shuttle they provided as well as all their services were top notch and so helpful! We loved this place and wouldn't think twice about coming back!
