Updates To The Wyndham Grand Desert

I am back from vacation and I have lots of things to write about. The first thing I would like to talk about is the Wyndham Grand Desert. You may recall that I have spoken of this Wyndham location previously; I mention it again because, Neal and I, stayed at the Grand Desert for a couple of days last week.

Upon check-in we found out that tower 3 had been completely remodeled. We requested this tower so that we could check out the changes. My hope was that the renovation included the addition of some color to the rooms; boy was I pleased with what I found. To me the tower looked much more sophisticated and inviting.

The new remodel included improvements to the furnishings as well as the addition of lots of color. The room we stayed in had beautiful purple flowers on the walls and the artwork was much improved. There was still a whirlpool fit for two and I was very happy to see that.

The exterior of tower 3 included a new pool area, which seemed small, but clean and attractive for relaxation. I did not get a chance to check out the other towers to make sure the large pool area was still present. I know that there were a few other updates made as well to the grounds, but I did not get a chance to check those out either. I will have to do more investigating on our next stay; I am sure we will be back again. I look forward to seeing what else their remodel includes.

Glacier Canyon – Wisconsin Dells

When I was younger, my parents took my sister and me, on many trips to the Wisconsin Dells. We had a blast staying at the Yogi Bear Campground in Warrens, and going to Noah’s Ark or Family Land. While I love and cherish all of those memories, and I would not change them for the world, nothing beats The Wyndham Vacation Resort at Glacier Canyon.

If you are looking for a place to take your family that will have your kids talking all year long about their experience, you want to go to Glacier Canyon. Glacier Canyon is equipped with amenities galore, and will keep your family busy for days. There is no need to leave the resort unless you want to go downtown or try something different such as riding the Ducks.

The resort has very comfortable rooms that have a rustic feel. They are equipped with Jacuzzi tubs that bubble all of your walking aches away. They have fireplaces, and they have either a patio or balcony. Our room had both a breakfast bar and a decent sized dining room table. You shouldn’t run into any trouble getting everyone to a table for dinner.

If you would like to eat out, the resort has five restaurants to try. They have arcades, black light mini golf courses, go karts, three indoor water parks, including a swim-up bar, and three outdoor water parks, as well as organized activities for the kids, and a workout room for the adults.

If your children get bored at this place, I fear nothing is going to satisfy them. There is simply too much to see and do, and it takes more than one day to do it all. I did try out the Pirate mini golf, and it was a blast. I also tried the pizza, which I very much enjoyed.

The only problem I ran into at this resort was when the upstairs neighbor’s dishwasher began leaking into our kitchen. The staff and maintenance people at the resort moved very quickly to take care of the issue. We were given some comps for the resort because of the leak. I was impressed with how quickly this situation was handled.

I would definitely come back and stay at this resort again. It is one of my favorite Wyndham locations, even as an adult. I went in November, so the outdoor parks were not open, but a great time was still had by everyone involved.

The Wyndham Resort at Avon

This past May, Neal and I, took a trip to Colorado. We wanted to get out of town for a few days for our anniversary. After much contemplation we decided to look into our timeshare and see if anything sparked our interest. We were happy to find the Wyndham Resort at Avon.

This resort is beautiful and has many great amenities. Upon check-in guests are given s’more packages to roast s’mores out on the patio. Even if you are the only person wanting to sit on the patio, they will still light a fire for you.

This resort has an owner’s lounge that hosts happy hour each day. On weekends you can sit and listen to live music. There is a game room with a pool table, and there are several retail stores and restaurants within walking distance.

The room had a large beautiful kitchen for cooking in. There was a fireplace, and a personal balcony. The bathroom came equipped with a luxury shower. The overall feel of the room was modern and very comfortable.

The room we stayed in did not have a whirlpool, but, the hotel did have an amazing hot tub. When I say amazing, I mean it was gorgeous. The hot tub was large and it had a waterfall that separated it into two sections. We were lucky enough to have the back section completely to ourselves. It was a wonderful experience.

If you are looking for further activities, the area around the Wyndham is beautiful. You can wander along the river or check out the many sculptures around town. The concierge is also more than willing to set you up with an activity plan. We chose to visit Hanging Lake, which is a fun little hike, but must be done early in the day or you may not find parking anywhere near the trail.
