“You've got to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This was our second trip to Timber Ridge & we loved it again! Our first trip we didn't realize that they offered horseback riding, skiing and the spas to the Timber Ridge Waterpark guests as well. I thought it was for the Grand Guests. so on this trip we took advantage of the horseback riding! It was a beautiful day (the last day of 60's weather too!) and I must say our guide Alex was great too! The price was great! (definately cheaper than in the 'burbs of Chicago) I would definately reccommend this lovely place to everyone - And they always run a special package just when I need one! Like the report card special! (hint...hint to Timber Ridge!) It'll fit your budget and is worth every penny!

Employees for both Smokey's Restaurant and the Hungry Moose Cafe were exceptionally helpful and friendly!! I had the Rib Eye Steak at Smokey's and it was excellent. Breakfast at Smokey's was very good as well. Timber Ridge was GREAT!

We did go to The Grand Geneva Part on Saturday night and we went to the Evolve Bar. 2 of the 3 bartenders that helped us were very friendly. The other one was a very snobby girl with an attitude. She was the one wearing a sleeveless dress the other 2 a male and a female were wearing long sleeve shirts and pants. This was on Saturday November 10th. I suggest the manager have a talk with that employee as we pay alot of money to have drinks and enjoy ourselves at Evolve.

This is our favorite place for a weekend getaway. We rented two rooms and had three generations of family members. Check in was a breeze and staff was personable and friendly. We are always impressed with the size of the room and the many amenities (separate bedroom, huge tub, kitchen, microwave, fridge, fireplace and deck with a view to name a few). The water park had a great kiddie area for the 3 year old and 10 month old. There was enough there to keep them entertained for hours. The adults enjoyed the slides, lazy river and hot tubes which were both indoors and out! The room was well insulated as we heard no noise from hallways or next door neighbors. No compaints about this fine hotel and have recommended to family, friends and coworkers.

Excellent small getaway for our family. Kids loved the waterpark and it wasn't as crowded as some indoor waterparks are. We enjoyed family BINGO where the kids won many fun prizes. Also had a blast in the game room. The food at Smokey's BBQ was awesome too. The staff was very friendly. We will be going back soon for sure!

The room we had for the price was outstanding. Full kitchen, 4 bar stools, dining table with 6 chairs, whirlpool bath, enclosed bedroom with flat screen tv, living room with gas fireplace and flat screen tv and small outdoor deck. The indoor pool was great for families with kids. The staff was very helpfull and polite. The grounds are beautiful! There are a lot of activities for all ages.

We go to TR about 2-4 times oer year. It is a short drive from Chicago. You can usually check in early and everyone is very friendly there. They have a microwave, stove and fridge which is really nice when traveling with the kids. Our kids(ages 3 and 6) love coming here. It is the perfect place for their ages. You can venture into town for dinner if you would like as well. Good value and nice getaway!
