Earlier this month, AAA announced their 2010 Four & Five Diamond Award winning lodging properties.  AAA’s Diamond Ratings “represent a combination of the overall quality, range of facilities, and level of services offered by the property. The descriptive ratings are assigned exclusively to properties that meet and uphold AAA’s rigorous quality standards.” Only 3.4% of the nearly 60,000 hotels rated reach Four Diamond status and only .27% achieve Five Diamonds.

WIA is proud to announce that the following member properties were all award winners:

We head southeast to the Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark in Lake Geneva for the second in our series on Wisconsin’s indoor waterparks & water activity centers.TRLentrance
At 30,000 square feet of indoor fun, Moose Mountain Falls includes two water slides, lazy river, plus activity & splash pools. I certainly wouldn’t let this crisp fall weather keep me inside though – there’s really nothing like watching the stars light up the cool night sky while relaxing in the indoor/ outdoor hot tub!
