We had our entire family with us, fourteen in number, ages three to seventy. We were all thrilled with the facilities. There are activities for everyone and right on location. We played golf, rode horeses, went on a boat tour, swam, dined in several restaurants, celebrated the 4th in a Grand way, used Kids R Grand, went to the arcade several times, participated in story time...on and on. It is more fun than Disney World for our family. We wll all be back, thank you.

This was a very pleasant experience for our family. It was our childrens first experience at a waterpark and to quote our six year old "this was the funnest thing weve ever done in our whole lives!" Thank you!

I thought the lifeguards were excellent!! They were really on the ball. Sometimes you just turn around to look at something and your toddler runs here or there. I felt safe that they were on the look out at all times. Loved the activities and the food was great!!!!

My family and I were very impressed with all that you had to offer for a family like ours with young kids. Weve never been to a waterpark hotel like this and it was definately a great experience!

Even our kids remarked on how nice everyone was. We know that your busy season was just getting started and loved that it was not too overcrowded. All the staff seemed fresh and ready to serve us well. Everyone at TRL and Grand Geneva seemed so "down to earth" and that was good for such a big and fancy resort. We liked that the fancy resort was "attached" to the family friendly one making it possible to have both kinds of vacations in one.

Wow, what a blast. My boys has such a good time. We never left the hotel, didnt need to. We participated in everything we could and there was so much to do between craft, gameroom and the waterpark itself. What a great family experience. I love the kitchen in the room. My guys just wanted to grab and go. It saved us a lot of money being able to prepare our own food. The cleaning staff were very nice and always smilinig and saying hello when they saw you. Well be back for sure! Thanks again

I attend hotels frequently due to traveling. I cannot tell you the last time I experienced such a lovely staff and wonderful hotel. It really was far beyond my expectations. I felt catered to. Thank you so much for your service....we will be back.

As a single mom it was such a wonderful experience for all of us, and we are coming back. Everyone was just wonderful that works there, and the place is just perfect! I hope its allowed to request the same room, it worked out great for us. Thank you!

We truly enjoyed our trip! Everyone in the hotel was wonderful. The wait staff in Smokeys Bar and Grill were exceptional, polite and thorough - the waitress we had the night prior remembered it was my daughters birthday the next day when we came for breakfast and wished her a happy one even though she wasnt our waitress that day!! We were impressed with number and friendliness of your life guards. Made our stay more enjoyable knowing the kids were will watched.

I just returned home to Chicago from Timber Ridge Lodge and can honestly say my family and I loved it. The service was more than great. The waterpark was exciting and the room was breath taking. I would refer this place to anyone looking to have fun to stay here. I will visit again this year. Thanks for a wonderful time.

This was a perfect mini-vacation! Timber Ridge is very family-oriented with all the comveniences and luxuries that you would expect. We loved the waterpark--perfect for younger children! We will definitely be back!

Your resort is such an amazinig value! We always use the Hot Date Rate special when we come. Once at your resort, we are always pleasantly surprised at how reasonable it is to eat there. The prices at Smokeys and at the cafe in the waterpark are surprisingly reasonable and the food is delicious. A large pizza fully fed my family of five and cost under $20, and the fact we can eat it right in the waterpark is fantastic!! The kids hate to tear themselves away from the slides for too long! We invited my in-laws to come for the day and they were so impressed they want to plan a family get away for January for all the kids and grandkids. Timber Ridge gift cards for everyone at Christmas! Thank you for providing such a nice family vacation spot! I love that I can take my family of 5 to a very fance resort, the Grand Geneva, at a price that I can afford! Although only 45 minutes from our house we feel like we are million miles away!!

My family really enjoyed our stay. The waterpark was perfect for our 4 year old son. There was very little wait time for the slides. The room was bigger and nicer than we expected. We look forward to future trips to your hotel. The teacher discount made this an afforable trip. The staff was pleasant and accomodating.
