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 jetted tub and fully equipped kitchens. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are eight dining options either 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 overly crowded. The water park has two water slides, a toddler pool, a lazy river and lifeguards on duty at all times. Other on-site entertainment options include a full arcade, an adventure center with archery, sand volleyball and disc golf as well as horseback riding and mini-golf. There's also a daily kids camp; in-room child care can also be arranged. Adults can also book a relaxing treatment at the on-site spa.

The Waterpark wasn’t overcrowded and, the location was ideal.
Other Comments
I was Not Happy about the location of our room. The Lodge didn’t appear to be full when we checked in on Friday, so I was disappointed and angry that our room could not have been any further from the Waterpark and other activities. Room 173. It was directly in front of the broken entry door.

Only complaint would be that the whirlpool bathtubs/shower were higher and therefore difficult to get into (for a shorter person) No bars to hold onto. Need to let folks know hotel does have some rooms with walk in shower.

Rooms and package deal was great value. Kids loved the water park, place was clean, and life guards were very good. The hotel could use a good coffee shop or provide better coffee. Food was just OK at the pool side restaurant.
