The Mama Bear Lounge and the Kids’ Cub Cave

Relax in a Steiff nature setting and enjoy a coffee, cookie, or some bubble tea while your children play in the next room in the “Kids’ Cub Cave” where they can climb, crawl, or hide out in a little cave. Bring your computers if you want to take a tech break – we have space to recharge in both lounges.
