A five-minute drive from Lake Geneva, the family-friendly Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark is packed with activities. The all-suite layout fits families in one or two bedrooms plus a separate sitting room and sofa bed. All suites have a balcony and a fireplace, bathrooms with a large whirlpool tub and fully equipped kitchens. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are eight dining options on-site or next door at the Grand Geneva resort. 

The hotel’s main draw is the 50,000-square-foot water park, which is open only to hotel guests, so the pools rarely get crowded. The water park has two waterslides, a toddler pool, a lazy river and lifeguards on duty at all times. The outdoor pools are open seasonally between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Other onsite entertainment options include a full arcade, an adventure center with archery, sand volleyball and disc golf as well as horseback riding. The resort also has an 18-hole mini-golf course exclusively for resort guests (additional fees for these activities do apply).

The rooms are spectacular, the service is amazing, the activities they have planned all day for the kids is great, and of course the arcade and water park was a big hit. All around win for this trip!

Be warned that while they do their best to enforce the posted quiet hours of 10pm - 8am, the walls are very thin.

The only issue we had was the a/c and heating unit. The temperature in the room was nothing like the thermostate was showing. Had to call an engineer but the issue still remained.

The waterpark and the location (convenient to Chicago).
Other Comments
The food options are very limited. On Wednesdays there is almost nothing available (not even coffee) until after 10am. Also, because it is a waterpark, it would be better if the one and two bedroom units had washer/dryers. There was no way to easily clean swimsuits and towels each day.

The rooms get heavy use but everything was in good working order. One of the best overall values I've had.
