Super fabulous resort for small children! Our children are 1 and 4, so we were looking for a resort with a water park that was not too huge, not too crowded, with not too many teenagers running around. Timber Ridge was perfect!
Room: Our room was a standard one bedroom room. It was such a big room, perfect for letting little ones stretch out. Dining table seated 6, full kitchen (minus oven), large bathroom with HUGE hot tub. All four of us fit in that thing! My kids are still talking about the "huge tub". Seperate master bedroom with t.v., closet, and own heat and air. The sofa in the living room pulled out, which is what our kids slept on. That area also had a fire place and large tv. The patio was very nice (bottom floor) with chairs for relaxing. We faced a nice forest area. There was a second large closet off the kitchen as well.
Water Park: It was perfect for us. Again, our kids are 1.5 and 4. There were two actual tube water slides, one that both are kids were allowed on with parents. It was fast enough to thrill my 4 year old but not so fast that my 1.5 year old was scared. There was a "toddler" area with two decent sized water slides (not tube slides) that my 4 year old loved! Both kids were able to handle those slides without help from mom or dad. There was another area with a large pool (4 foot deep) with a large slide that the kids could do by themselves, but we needed to catch them as the water was over the heads (the water park does provide free life jackets in several sizes that were great). There was basketball hoops and floating pads and net in that pool. There was a lazy river that was VERY lazy. It was fine for our kids, but it was pretty slow, nothing rough at all. There was also a very large hot tub that was indoor / outdoor (kids over 5 according to sign). We did take our 4 year old in it, she loved being outside in the cold weather in a hot tub! There is a food area in the park with typical "fast food" items. What we most appreciated was the WARM AIR and WARM WATER. Our girls are skinny and freeze at most indoor water parks, but this place was super warm, it had huge heater lamps hanging from the ceiling. The water was also warm, I am not a fan of jumping into a pool due to water temp., but I had no problem here b/c the water was so warm. The park was very uncrowded when we were there, maybe 20 other kids in the park at a time.
Other: We also appreciated that this resort is obviously geared toward keeping kids and parents happy. ALL staff, down to cleaning staff, were super friendly, helpful, always smiling. The resort also had a arcade that was affordable with tickets and prizes to choose from. There was a "movie room" with big pillows and bean bags on the floor. There were usually 2 movies during the day and 1 at night. We participated in family bingo, great kid prizes and great fun. There was story reading at night by the fire place.
This was a great resort for small children. The room is almost worth the price even if there was no water park! We'll go again for sure!
