The 140-suite, highly themed resort, located in Wausau, Wis., features a 50,000-square-foot indoor waterpark.

Food designed to appeal to both children and adults alike is available in the Saw Mill Grill and Cookhouse Snack Bar.
The property features high-speed wireless Internet access and 1,600 square feet of flexible meeting space, capable of accommodating groups ranging from 20 to 250 people, including catered functions.
“The property opened last year and its highly accessible location makes it an ideal year-round destination,” said George. “Its setting in the Northwoods creates an ideal summer holiday, and its close proximity to the Granite Peak Ski area offers great appeal during the winter. We believe our marketing and operations expertise will add immediate value to the property.”
