Wow!!! Much more than we expected! The lodge has this awesome indoor water park for all ages. It features an inside jacuzzi and heated pool that when in either one you can continue to go out to an extension part of them and still be in the heated water. Imagine this in the pure cold of winter! Then the view... More

Overall I enjoyed the atmosphere of this place. It's very large, clean and warm. The fireplace in the lobby was going and the staff is friendly. There were a few small issues. The lighting in the bedrooms are very dim. There's like 2 small lights. The breakfast was good but nothing g special. It's pretty much generic items, brown and... More

The missus found this place on Groupon and it worked perfectly as a stop over on route to Canada. We have a toddler and the water park was amazing. In fact, the whole place is very kid friendly. The rooms are exceptionally well equipped with all kitchen facilities you might need. Tips: - There is a big fridge freezer and... More

We went with our 3 year old. The water park is perfect for him and us. Staff is great. Room is great. Just that the bed in the bedroom is not as comfortable as the murphy bed. Food is ok, chicken pot pie is awesome! Just a little pricey. We had a really good time and would go back.

We traveled from Boston, which was a longer drive that we expected, but we all feel that it was well worth it. Our children, 9 and 11, had a blast. The water park in our opinion, was on the smaller side, but it had slides and things to do for all ages. There were even some teenagers walking around. It... More

We got a great weekend deal with a Groupon and went for the weekend in April. Our room was upgraded when something went wrong in the first room. We had a large efficiency suite. The staff was wonderful throughout the complex. We loved the water park with the swim outside hot tub and heated pool, and used the game room... More

We spent a couple of days, after finding a GROUPON deal. It was wonderful. We had a great time at the Water Park, enjoyed a couple of local restaurants and visited friends in Syracuse. We even went to Syracuse University. We will come back because of the great service. The rooms are wonderful!
