Nestled within the picturesque grounds of Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, lies the award-winning Timber Ridge Lodge in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin -- an all-suite resort located less than an hour from Milwaukee and 90 minutes from Chicago and Madison.

Featuring over 1,300 acres, the resort lends itself as not only the perfect getaway for families, but also groups that are looking for something different, something with a bit more… personality. 

From family reunions to fundraising events, education and training group gatherings, government retreats, award ceremonies, birthday parties, corporate events, and more, the resort can accommodate any size gathering with unique offerings and memorable fun all while including important event essentials such as professional meeting planners and staff to support your event.

Here are four reasons to take your group to Timber Ridge:

1. The suite life. Timber Ridge offers comfortable, spacious and detail-oriented spaces with its all-suite accommodations which include room options with full kitchens and dining areas, plus large spaces throughout the property for groups to convene. The resort’s 3,500-square-foot Cascades Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 people or be divided into sections for a more private gathering. Groups in need of more space may take advantage of the resort’s on-site sister property, Grand Geneva, which offers over 62,000 square feet of meeting space.

2. Location, location, location. The resort is conveniently located to Lake Geneva hotspots including shopping, restaurants, and the must-see attractions. It’s also less than an hour from Milwaukee, and 90 minutes from both Madison and Chicago’s O’Hare airport. 

3. So much to do: Spa, ski, splash, scavenger hunts, and more. Timber Ridge Lodge offers an array of activities to entertain groups of all ages, any time of year, including access to its very own, on-site 50,000 square feet indoor and outdoor waterpark, Moose Mountain Falls. The fun and group offerings doesn’t end at the bottom of the waterslide. There are endless activities for groups to choose from including 26-holes of championship golf, the award-winning WELL Spa + Salon, a large fitness center, scenic hiking trails, archery, bike riding, rock climbing, seasonal winter sports including skiing, ice-skating and so much more.  Both Grand Geneva and Timber Ridge are also known for the versatility of group activity offerings such as pizza challenges, scavenger hunts, chili cook-offs, build-a-bike, guacamole, mojito mix-offs and extreme sled building. 

4. *NEW* Food truck fun: In addition to gourmet culinary offerings and menus prepared by the resort’s critically acclaimed Executive Chef Nelly Buluje, groups may also take advantage of the new Grand Grille food truck. From team taco night to a family burger bash, this new food trailer can be customized to enhance your group’s private culinary experience. Who wouldn’t want their own truck full of desserts?
