You’ll then walk through the lobby to the right, past the mercantile store and out the sliding doors. You’ll walk straight on the pathway and onto a wooden bridge walkway to the Boulder Ridge Villa area. You’ll walk into a small lobby.
Boulder Ridge rooms offer a more “at home” feel and give you the option of selecting a room with a kitchenette, full kitchen, washer and dryer, living room area and multiple connected rooms. These rooms are perfect for larger groups or people traveling who prefer all the amenities of home.
It was extremely nice having two living areas in the evening, a washer and dryer and being able to store things or cook things in the kitchen.
Boulder Ridge guest have full access to Wilderness Lodge areas including bus and boat transportation, pools/splashpads, and the main lobby. Boulder Ridge does have it’s own pool area which is smaller and quieter but is open to all guest staying at Wilderness Lodge. It’s actually our favorite pool. They also have cabanas free to use on a first come first serve basis.
