With our fourth child on the way very shortly, we had been hoping to get away for one last little winter getaway as a family of five before baby arrives. So, when the opportunity to go on a winter adventure to Great Wolf Lodge with our best friends for a few days came up, we jumped at the chance!
As soon as we arrived at Great Wolf, we could feel the magic. We stayed in the most beautiful cottage behind the lodge. It was the perfect accommodation for our family. It was a spacious, modern cottage with a very cozy feel. The twins were stoked about their loft bedroom with double bunk beds because they both got to sleep on the top! Each cottage sleeps up to 10 people, so if you’re travelling with multiple families, booking a cottage together is a great option. That way, you can choose to make your own food, coffee and hot chocolate! I think for us, the best part about about this lodging option was the fact that since we were there with our best friends, we could put all the children to bed in the evening and hang out and order room service in the living area together. Win and win!
While we were all most excited about getting to the water, I was initially nervous that the waterpark would be a challenge with Everest, our youngest son. But there was so much for him to do, including the splash pad areas, wading in the shallow parts of the pools, and whenever mama needed a break from chasing, we’d jump in a tube together and float around the lazy river while my husband and the older boys tackled all the biggest water slides. I found this to be such a special opportunity to have some bonding time with my youngest son before baby arrives.
