If you have young kiddos (under 10ish), they will love this place! As a parent, there were pros and cons, but because my kids had so much fun (ages 8 & 5), I'm giving it 4stars. The room was fairly large, big whirlpool tub, and pretty clean. Definitely could use a little updating though. The bed was NOT comfortable, and the pull-out couch was pretty terrible (the kids didn't complain). There was a full sized fridge, which was great, but it was in need of repair. The dining choices at the resort weren't great. Either a snack bar in the pool area (with stale chips/pretzels), or a Smokehouse. You also have access to the Grand Geneva restaurants, but they were all a little upscale for what we were looking for. The pool area is very nice. The lazy river was bigger than I thought it would be, there were two large slides (one body slide, one tube slide), and several mid-level slides....including one outside, which my kids enjoyed. The lifeguards are VERY attentive! There is a fun little activity room with arts/crafts, games, movies, etc near the pool....and the daily schedule is always posted. There's also a pretty big arcade area where you earn tickets for prizes (the kids always love that). As others have mentioned, there is horseback riding right adjacent to the Lodge. My 5yr old was able to do a pony ride, that's for ages 6 & under. 7 & up can do trail rides. (all for a fee) My 8yr old had never been on a horse....I would've loved an option for him to just ride a horse or pony, as a trail ride was a bit intimidating for him. The petting zoo is a joke. (a couple pigs, a goat, a sheep, and a donkey) Overall, it was a fun trip. Close to town, which has some cute shops/restaurants, and places to rent boats, etc. Unsure if we'd return, as there are just so many other places to explore.
