Our family occupied three villas and one of the one-bedroom suites. All units were well appointed with fully stocked kitchens. The units were very clean. The layout takes advantage of the beautiful view of the lake - we had a lovely deck overlooking the lake. There is a sand beach, a swimming pool, and lots of walking paths. The lawns... More

Attended a three day family reunion in late July. The accommodations worked out perfectly for our large group. We had three villas and one of the one bedroom units near the pool. The kitchens were well equipped for preparing group meals. There were plenty of activities for ages 3 - 70. Swimming, golf, boating, Bon fires, biking. Only wish we... More

We have stayed in the Villas at Giants Ridge for 5 years straight for the 4th of July. Overall, we enjoy the experience. The setting is gorgeous along Lake Wynne with the ski slopes and Embarrass River all around us. The amenities are great with pool, hot tub, tennis courts, water craft (canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards,... More

Stayed in a Villa with a group of guys on a golf trip. 3 bedrooms, a loft with 3 beds, and a couple pull out couches. Also had 3 bathrooms and a nice sauna and a hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare our meals (coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, plates, cups, silverware, etc.)... More

We visited the Villas at Giant's Ridge in late May, a 3BR trade through RCI. The villas are all unique and different; ours had 3 bedrooms plus an upstairs loft, gas fireplace, whirpool bath, sauna and private lower-level suite. There was a patio and deck, as well as charcoal bbq. No wifi; but there was cable. The clubhouse had wifi,... More

Went through RCI got a great price on a week before the ski resort opened. I wanted to be in the area and did not go for skiing. No problems checking in. Place was clean. Not a lot of people there (was the week after Thanksgiving). Did not interact with the staff a lot but had no problems with them.... More

stayed in a 2 bedroom villa (lake view). Very nice unit newer trim, hardwood floors, all very top notch. Reason for the poor rating is that the booking process and rates charged vary widely depending upon who you call. I ended up paying $50/night more by booking direct rather than through the lodge, and this was after i straightened out... More

Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. There are agencies who book for us and rates do vary considering travel agent commissions you may be assessed, etc. We always recommend booking directly with the Villas in order to take advantage of specials we may offer at different times of the year, and also to make...

I have stayed at the Villa's at Giants Ridge several times as I have an Alpine Ski Racer. Typically when there is a large race, skiers and parents often stay at the Villa's for the convenience. Ski racers spend a lot of time standing in the cold and it is important for them to be able to get inside and... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us your feedback. It becomes a crazy time here around the high school ski races and meets. Granting late check outs becomes a slippery slope for us due to the high volume of people who ask for them, also. We do have a 2 night minimum stay, which was waived... More

We went to Giants Ridge with another couple for a ski weekend. The reason I say it's compilcated is for reasons of the 2 management companies for the lodge ans villas.
