Michigan’s only “Living Room” Water Park

A living room water park?

At the Bavarian Inn Lodge, we have what you might call a “living room water park.” Whether it’s to beat the heat on those hot summer days or to relax by the water in the dog days of winter, you can just step out of your hotel room and join the fun in the only living room water park that Michigan has to offer!

Wish you had a water park in your living room? It might be a little hard to fit, but convenient for family fun and entertainment. Would your kids go for a living room water park?

They would probably go for having one all of the time! In fact, they most likely wish they could “waterslide” to school! A living room water park could be impractical at home (and the slide might block access to your bookshelves and refrigerator). So, visit us at Bavarian Inn Lodge instead, where you can enjoy living room type seating mixed with water play and even videogames! Your books won’t get wet!

 

Make a splash!

When you stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge you can have a water park that is practically in your living room during your stay. No need to stay in a hotel and commute to a theme park. We bring the water park to you!

A piece of Heaven for water slide enthusiasts

Our living room water park is only a short walk from the Bavarian Inn Restaurant. Go for a swim and then have a world-class meal! Play some mini-golf and then top the day off with an evening of karaoke. Or, hey, get back in the pool! After all, it’s walking distance from everything, including your room.

Two kinds of waterslides, one Inn

Children absolutely love the water slides. Most could slide all day! Parents and grandparents appreciate it because they can watch while relaxing in a dry, comfortable area. Couples appreciate it because they can enjoy the water slide but then retreat to our adults-only pool or adults-only whirlpool.

Try the Bavarian Blast or Tower Twister… or, better yet, try both slides!

Bavarian Blast

Innertube down our water slide!

Tower Twister

Slide feet first on this cool water slide!

Something for everyone

Adjacent to our mini golf course is our pool with a 15-foot waterfall. There is also a toddler play pool for our littlest guests to enjoy with small fun fountains and just 18″ of water.

Spend time with family

You can sit poolside and capture Instagram-worthy pictures of your kids. However, you don’t have to just watch your kids if you don’t want to. You can participate! Get on a tube with your child and enjoy the twists and turns of our water slide! Who knows? You might be asking your kids to go “just one more time”!

Water slides are for couples too!

Water parks aren’t just for kids. Enjoy powering down a water slide on a tube as a couple. It’s an activity made for memories!

Spill” off benefits

You burn 340 calories per hour leisurely swimming. Have fun with the family and do something good for yourself!

An airy scene

Even if you’re not swimming, it’s a great space to be in. Pull up a chair and play a card game and enjoy the big windows and bustling swimmers. Enjoy the cool murals on the walls.

Dry options for parents and grandparents

Hanging out in a living room water park doesn’t mean you have to get wet if you don’t want to. We have couch areas and lots of sitting areas available throughout the entire fun center so families can congregate outside of their rooms.

All of our water play options are mixed right in with our “dry play” options! Grandma and Grandpa can be sitting comfortable at a table watching the grandkids swim in a nearby pool. It’s a set up that makes everyone comfortable and brings everyone together.

No two pools alike

At our living room water park, once you slide into the pool, stay a while! With four pools, and no two alike, the scenery changes but the fun stays just as wild.

Fun just steps away

You are right in the center of all the action. Just cross over the wooden covered bridge to over 100 shops and attractions.

Water park features & attractions:

We have four indoor pools and three whirlpools for overnight guests at the Lodge. If you’re looking for some kid-free time, don’t worry! One pool and whirlpool are reserved especially for adults without children. No two pools are alike! Please note the size requirements for our slides:
