We stayed in my in-laws lockoff portion of their timeshare they purchased back in '98. Travelling with our 1.5 year old for the first time to The Ridge, I wasn't sure how it would be - it was great. The room (6th floor of the Cascade) was spacious, clean, & was stocked with dishes, soap, microwave, mini fridge, & coffee maker. You are literally at the top edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, so it is windy - every day. We were here before so we knew to prepare for that and brought ear covers for our tater tot and light hoodies for ourselves. There is a playground that was perfect for our Tot at the Terrace Building next door.
There is a new moderate hiking/bike trail that takes 2.5-3.5 hours to hike down to town (with the little one, we needed to stop several times and just focus on her so it took us 3.5). It was beautiful with some fantastic views of the lake and the casinos from above. The Go Blue took us back up to The Ridge.
Food from the deli was excellent as was the service.
-We had a medical package and paid to have it overnighted to arrive on Saturday. They didn't pick it up until Monday and just gave excuses.
-There is a children's activity "drop off" for 3+yr olds. The concierge told me that I could join with my little one, but when I tried they told me that I couldn't come in with her it was drop off only.
-Try not to just let those heavy doors slam. Ugh our room was right next to housekeeping and someone was staying in the larger suite next door and the door slamming jarred me when trying to put our little one to sleep.
-Remember it's windy here.
-The restaurant is not open every day. The deli has split shift hours. Plan for that.
-There are games at the spa desk that you can check out.
