    our room was not ready upon checking in at 4:00 pm, the room was clean and nice but for some reason there was a loud noise we can hear from our family suite like a loud running water or washing machine :( the room temperature was not realy working it was pretty hard to adjust for the right temp we would like to be. Then we left my daughter in-laws wedding ring and band on the side table of one of the bedroom , we called the hotel as soon as possible ( 45 mnts away from this hotel ) talked to security and I was told he did not find anything in the suite, and i’m like what happen is as we stepping out of our suite the house keeper was outside our door she even asked me if we checking out already and I say yes. Any how we filed for lost / stolen item. until now no response .

    We had a WONDERFUL time. Everything was cleannand nice. I would like to specifically recognize Ricky, the cook at the Timbers and there staff. My family and I are Vegan and we saw that there weren't any Vegan options besides fruit. We were going to leave the lodge to go to another restaurant when the extremely friendly staff assured us that Ricky would take care of us. He quickly whipped up some AMAZING options for us and even came out to check on us and see how we liked it. It was nothing short of AMAZING restaurant quality deliciousness. The staff was so nice and friendly and for this experience alone we will be coming back again. It's so nice to know that Great Wolf is so accommodating!!!
