We were moving our things from MN to IL and needed a last minute place to stay. It was a Saturday night in the Dells - not easy to find a hotel that accepts dogs. We booked at this resort and noted "adult only" so we suspected it would be an interesting experience with my elderly parents. In fact the... More

Room was clean. Grounds are pretty. Staff very nice. Daily maid service on request only. There were bugs in the pool.Good value for the money. Needs painting. Dog friendly. Would recommend if the pool was cleaner.

I spent the weekend at the resort with a group that had rented out all of the cabins. Rainbow Valley is a vintage property that has got to date back at least sixty years. Located about a mile from the Dells strip, but nestled far from the road and very secluded. The resort has about twenty cabins and a main... More

It was our third visit to Rainbow Valley Resort. Gary & Andre have been busy making improvements with a new deck off the bar, building a new snack bar next to the pool, & most of the cabins have been repainted. They have plans for more improvements too in the near future. Only a mile from downtown Wisconsin Dells, it's... More

I spent a long weekend at Rainbow Valley and enjoyed every minute of it. The owners Gary and Andre made me feel very welcome from the time I arrived. The secluded wooded setting was a perfect escape to relax with just the guys. The bar and restaurant serve great food and drink without being fussy. My room was very comfortable... More

Did a weekend getaway and stayed overnight at Captain Dix. Tucked away on River Road, this is a rustic gay-oriented resort with cabins, and beautiful grounds. This is not a luxury resort, but it has a lot going for it. In particular, the resort has a great lounge, featuring some seriuosly attentive and gorgeous bartenders. The owner Gary, was extremely...

My partner and I stayed for a weekend in August. It was a great place to get away from our busy lives. Don't go in expecting the Ritz because you will be disappointed. However, if you want to relax, socialize with others a bit, take some long nature walks and enjoy the Dells, then stay here. The hospitality is great,... More
