The skiing was awesome. The snow was well-groomed, the lines were short, the people who work there are extra nice. The resort itself needs a serious makeover. Although everything is relatively clean, the decor and ambiance was outdated and/or non-existent. The whole place from the registration area to the hallways to the restaurants and rooms needs some serious updating and... More

Hotel is very dated, and the maid service almost non-existent. Rooms were dirty, and no one vacuumed for the whole 7 days we stayed. Trash was not emptied, and we had to request that the room staff removed the trash. Will not stay at this hotel again. Only nice part was the restaurant and bar.

We came down to Devils Head for new years skiing and our expectations were low because we have not had any snow this year. When we got there all of the runs were open and we had a great time. Devils Head did an amazing job with making fake snow. It was all powder and practically no icy sections. I... More

We booked our trip before reading the reviews...I was really nervous. We are a family of four. Yes, the lodging is dated, and the walls are thin. But, the skiing was great, no lines. Our kids had three days of lessons, taught by wonderful instructors. My family and I would definitely come back. Our next trip I would bring our... More

There was missing sections of the ceiling in the hallways and they were extremely dirty. The "suite" was OK for 1996 and we had a broken window with tape sealing it. I would suggest not staying in the hotel section of the resort. As for the ski hill, it's extremely flat. They have 3 decent runs and 2 are closed... More

A bunch of friends and I traveled for a golf weekend. The resort was dated, but clean. It was a rustic outdoors feel but it looked like nothing has been replaced since th 80's. The staff was very friendly, and the food was great.

I chose the site because it was hosting an event I wished to attend. When the event was canceled, I decided to keep the reservations and just make it a 3 day getaway with my wife. I was put off as we approached the entry doors by the dirtiness of the glass. I didn't see a clean window during our... More

We were visiting friends in the area and needed a room for the night, Devils Head Resort was the closest. The property is beautiful, but the rooms need to be brought up to date. The room we had was very clean but real basic for the price. The walls were painted concrete block, the bed and mattress were vintage hotel,... More

We had my daughter's wedding at Devil's Head, outside at the base of the Baraboo Bluffs. The site was perfect for pictures and no travel was needed. The indoor reception site was also very nice, food was good, staff were friendly and very accomodating to all of our needs. We stayed in one of the Condos which was newer, large... More

The hotel has not been updated since the early 80's. Rooms are tiny and smell funky, but appeared clean. Indoor pool was sketchy and the hot tubs hold 3 people. Staff was friendly, and the outdoor pool was very nice. We were there for a wedding and that was all very nice.
