You can find that information on the following page http://hotel1647.openhotel.com/rooms.cfm . We hope your experience in... More

Visited Captain Dix bar and hotel during a weekend in October. Hardly any other people around. Buildings and hotel rooms are decent and relatively clean, even if a little bit old and worn out. During the summer and with more people they can surely be nice. Two negative sides: the surrounding fields and areas untidy and not taken care of.... More

This resort is set in a beautiful Valley. The owners are completely hands on and attentive to guests. It is an ideal getaway. Rooms are clean and roomy. The facility is older but well maintained and comfortable. Great bar with weekend themes, events, and entertainment. The real treasure is the dining room! In a vacation area known for fast, mediocre... More

From the first moment we stepped in, as complete strangers, we felt very welcome. Not just by the staff (who are wonderful!!) but also by the other guests and visitors. I have been back many times and always try to bring new people so that word can get out to a larger audience.

My 8 year old and I were visiting my parents in Madison, but a rainy day took us on a drive to the Dells area cottage hunting. Anyway, hunger took over and we saw a run down sign that said "Restaurant" and "Open" at the same time so we decided to give the long drive a shot, vowing to leave... More

My girlfriend and I just went this past week and had the best time. Loved everything about the place from the owner and his great sense of humor to their delicious food and very clean rooms and comfy bed.

My Chicago friends Harold and Alan took me to Captain Dix two years ago in late October 2012 and we stayed there 2 nights. When I visit from Europe we always go to Saugatuck, Michigan but this time we decided to go to Wisconsin instead. We had come here a couple of years before and we had a good time.... More

Very well-kept grounds and friendly staff. The bar crowd is interesting. My partner and I will going back to stay in a cabin….with a great view of the bar- very cool. Peaceful place with a really nice pool and poolside company. The food is delicious.

LGBT resort, a former artist's commune, and a huge well kept secret in the Wisconsin Dells, this is the place for a gay honeymoon. Our cabin had a Jacuzzi that we, my husband and I, are still tlking about. Outdoor fireplaces, a pool that is cold in August, a restaurant that is surprising good, and a bar with former clowns...
