Staff is friendly. Water park is closed. Rooms are decent size we booked the most expensive room for our family of 6. Bathroom is not big enough to close the door while you’re in it. Bathtub was rusted out pretty bad. No breakfast, or food for that matter. (covid excuses for bad service) (every other restaurant is serving food) They did call in advance to let us know park was closed but we were on the plane. Rate should have been reduced. To bad, could be awesome

We found out when we got here that the water park is closed. Possibly indefinitely. We were on town for the RV show, so that wasn't a deal breaker, but it would have been nice to know when we booked the room three hours earlier. Bed was comfortable, the Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch, and there was little to no noise, so we got a great night sleep. The shower head was pulled out of the wall and there were more rust stains in the tub than I've ever seen. That said, the shower wasn't bad at all. We did argue for a discount due to no water park. It took a little bit, but they gave in. We saved a good chunk of money. I rated three stars because of the water park being closed. We were excited to do some swimming in the evenings.

We recently had our first stay at the Grand Lodge. We loved the room decor, very rustic. Everything was very clean, and they had put extra pillows in the room as requested. We loved the fact that you could stay a night and play the next day, but were disappointed in the waterpark only being open on the weekends. I will say it was well noted on their website and they even gave me a call to let me know, since we were staying on a Sunday night. Would just like to see weekday offerings in the future :) The only complaint I really had was the check in was not until 4pm. Would have been nice to have an early check in, so we could have put our items in the room before using the park. (More of a convenience thing). There was plenty to do at the park and it was very clean (besides a stray band-aid, and you will get that with kiddos). Waterpark temp was just right, as was the water. The food options for lunch were pretty good, nothing fabulous, just the usual waterpark food. I will say the prices were decent, but very long lines. We would have ordered to our room, but couldn't get a room until 4 pm. We didn't want to have to put clothes on to go eat elsewhere and come back, so we made do. Love the locker system they have here. You use a code for the lockers, so you don't have to carry a key all day! Perfect! The price was reasonable as well, I believe 6.00. Also, got a great night sleep. The walls were MUCH thicker here than Mt. Olympus. We will be back to visit! If you are questioning whether or not to go, I would say it is a huge yes from our family. :)

This was our 2nd time taking our girls there now ages 3.5 and 5.5. First when they were 2 and 4. If you are looking for something fun to do when it’s cold and your kids need to burn some energy off this is the place to go. We love the bunk bed suite. The kids love the bunk bed and being able to watch tv in their own room. We love the king size bed and nice living room. Breakfast is $6 for ages 4 and up on the weekends and even during Covid was better than expected! Waterpark has plenty of space and things for kids of all ages to do! There is a good sized area for kids 3 and under to play safely in and then different slides, a lazy river some basketball hoops and the log obstacle course for older kids. The air temp and water temp is comfortable and there isn’t the horrible chlorine smell like most water parks. There is a little cafe by the waterpark with plenty of food to choose from and also a bar for adult beverages. Oh and the staff were all very welcoming and helpful as well. We have no complaints about the resort itself. Waterpark stays are always on the more expensive side but their prices are comparable to other waterpark we’ve been to. Thank you for another great stay!
