Has anyone ever been to Zehner's Splash Village in Frankenmuth, MI? If so, what did you think? How were they with allergies? Was PB&J all over the place?

Thanks!

We haven't stayed at Spash Village (but we have at Barvarian Inn before DS was diagnosed). I did want to say that the Bavarian Inn resturant was very good about allergies. I called and talked to the chef. The bread and stuffing are no goes and we had a bigger problem because DS couldn't have egg as well... and the chicken has an egg wash. They made us custom meals and everything was fine. The Chef seemed well informed... they have a gluten free menu and I wouldn't be suprised if they do more for allergies. Let us know about Splash Village... we went to the Great Wolf Lodge over the summer and DS had a great time.

Thanks Lindy! Is the whole town just one big fun park? We just stumbled upon Zehnders b/c we were looking for a half-way point between Western NY and Chicago to meet my brother and his family...sounds like you know alot about this place. Where would you recommend we stay? We have 6 kids under 5 and 4 adults..
Thanks so much!

I am currently planning a weekend trip and am getting nervous.
When I called and spoke to the chef she sounded nervous. She told me to stay away from all bakery items including buns on the hot dogs and hamburgers as they are all made in their own bakery and may have come in contact with or include nuts. Also their gravy and dressings include nuts. Their pizza dough comes from an outside source but she is unsure of the ingredients.
My husband and I decided just to bring food from home to heat up, but they said that NONE of their rooms have microwaves. And I need special permission to bring in outside food! I have left a message with a manager and am hoping to get a call soon.
Can you tell me what your experience was like when you went?
Thanks!

Hi April - We got hit with a MASSIVE snow/ice storm that closed all major highways, so we didn't go. They were kind enough to refund us at the last minute.
We were going to stay in their new suites that had microwaves for that reason. You should call and ask about them. We planned on bringing all food with us.
Good luck and let us know how it goes!
