The environment for children is exceptional, from the waterpark, to the evening "dance event", and the magic quests, our children (9-13yrs) were entertained constantly. If I had to think of a neg. I wish there were more chairs for the "old folks".

Staff was very inviting and friendly. Lots of fun activities for families that you don’t even have to leave the lodge. Only disappointment was Dunkin Donuts coffee and hash browns tasted burnt and bitter (but the donuts were great)!
