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

I was a bit reluctant to stay at the Rainbow Valley Resort based on some of the negative reviews on this site. So I only booked a weeknight stay (Wed. night). I camped at the nearby Devil's Lake State Park Thursday through Sunday, which was a mistake since it was rainy and cold. I actually found the resort to be... More

This place was not clean and they wouldn't let us get our money back even though there were crumbs and dirt on the floor and the bedding.
