10/19/2016Timber Ridge RV And Recreation
This review is for the cabins/cottages.My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages at Timber Ridge for two evenings. We selected Timber Ridge based on their pet-friendly policy and trying to save money rather than staying at a hotel. The positives:The cottage was newer and we had good spacing. Cottages sleep 5 people and have their own kitchenette and shower. The park is gated and is very clean.The cons: -Temperature: The cottage lists "Electric Heat". It is about a 8" x 8" space heater for a 5 person cabin! We were freezing! If we moved the space heater too close, we were sweating. Our first night was very uncomfortable. This is supposed to be a 4-season cottage, but I would not recommend staying here when the temperature drops outside. I would not want to have all 5 people there sharing one little heater. -Shower: The shower temperature does not stay warm long. You have enough time to quickly shave, wash, and scrub your face. You do not have time to wash your hair or brush your teeth. You also only have about 30 seconds from warm to cold. There is no "luke warm warning".-Cable: This wasn't a big deal to us, but it is advertised as having cable. According to the front desk, "Not all cottages have the amenities listed". Well, I'm glad some of the amenities were. Overall, the essentials that we needed weren't up to par. It looked good, but heat and shower temperature is a huge thing. We stayed in a hotel that was cheaper, pet friendly, and way more comfortable for our third night. I'm sure this is great for RVs and tents, but for someone who is paying over $100 per night, go to a hotel. Don't try to go rustic, otherwise, you will be freezing and be very uncomfortable.
