Editor’s Review of Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark

His name is Bruce the Moose and he's made out of Legos. He's the mascot for Timber Ridge and one of many enjoyable amenities that make this a perfect family getaway. Located on the 1300 acres that is the Grand Geneva Resort, the Timber Ridge Lodge and Waterpark goes a step further in providing a family-friendly experience for their guests, starting with Bruce the Moose. Lego room packages and Lego "create and take" sessions are among the activities that combine one of children's most popular toys with a family vacation.

The Timber Ridge Lodge was added to the Grand Geneva Resort experience in 2001. As the name suggests, a rustic northwoods lodge decor carries through all 225-guest suites as well as the common areas and dining
... more facilities. Five adorable mascots--a moose, chipmunk, coyote, and two human-like characters--make frequent appearances around the property and are even known to flop in the pool with your family.

A complimentary trolley is in constant motion around the property, picking up and dropping off at the pools, the horse stables, the golf course and more. If you're lucky, Ron will be the trolley driver on duty. He's a former school bus driver who knows how to keep your kids engaged and safe.

There's really no need to leave the Grand Geneva property once you arrive, no matter what the season. From sledding and sleigh rides to swimming, tennis and climbing rock walls, there's plenty to offer even the most finicky of your children. With golf, a great spa and multiple restaurants to choose from, adults, too, will appreciate a getaway at the Timber Ridge Lodge.

The best fun my daughter ever had
Reviewed on 06/06/2014
In my many experiences in going to hotels and motels this is by far one of the best. Not only is it very close to where we live but also my daughter enjoys the water park very much. She started to learn to swim here and had a ...
