“A little piece of Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

Our stay at the Birchcliff Resort was nothing short of amazing!
The cabins offered everything that was needed to provide a comfortable at home feel.
The woods, which was right out the back was amazing! Trails that led all over with the trees forming a canopy right over you. A path that led straight to a beautiful river right through the woods.
The pool was pristine clean and very large. The kids had so much fun playing ping pong and swimming.
Nightly camp fires were the best! It brought the opportunity to meet others on vacation and form new friendships.
We went to the Dells with the plans to go to Noahs Ark water park and some other amusement parks, , but we found ourselves not wanting to leave Birchcliff.
Brian and the other staff called us by name the entire stay and were always available to meet our needs.
We will most definitely be coming back here, only next time we'll be staying much longer!
I can't say enough positive about this little place in the woods!
It really is a little piece of heaven right here on earth!!!

We rented two cabins last week at Birchcliff. The resort was amazing and accommodations were fantastic. There was so much to do for my adult kids...volleyball, tennis, basketball, horseshoes, ping pong, pool, bean bags just to name a few. The staff was wonderful and knowledgeable of the area, providing excellent referrals to restaurants and shopping. What a great way to end the summer with family before heading off to college.

Room Tip: The cabins we stayed in slept 6 comfortably. All cabins are nicely spaced out on the resort so you...

Got the Groupon deal but have to pay extra because there's no more available rooms for the option I bought supposed to be the old time cabin.
Worked out pretty good because the duplex with loft turned out to be better for us.
The resorts son Brian was very accommodating reg my reservation. Other staff were also nice and courteous.
The place was secluded but just a few mins from downtown.
Just a little bit scary driving there at night, very dark no street lights at all.
The place looks like an old time resort which is just my type.
The cabin where we stayed is good size,clean but a little bit
Musty smelling.
TV needs upgrade,it's still the small box TV and only 5 channels.
There's no wifi which is fine for
Me as it gives my kids a break from iPads and vid games.but I have ATT and there's no signal on my fone either.no fone hook ups in the cabin so if you need something like extra pillows or blankets you have to walk to the main office.
Both times I went to the office there was nobody at the desk and there's a note instead to ring bell or to call a certain no.but I don't have signal on my fone so just waited there until somebody comes.
There's a recreation room but the stuff there are so old my kids was not able to play with it, when we get there the place was deserted and was so dusty, no wonder why. The building itself is in good shape just needs a little updating,probably new toys to play with?billiards? Foosball?air hockey table?
Hiking trail is very nice leading to a beach, you just have climb down the cliff to get to the beach.
It would also be nice if there's a divider in the front porch between units just for a little privacy.
Overall, it was a nice stay and will come back esp with a groupon deal, gets a little bit pricey without it.
Important thing is it
Is clean and the staff are
Nice.

Stayed at this location in late July 2014 for five nights with children. Great place for families.

The good: Great pool and activities for kids. Staff was very nice. Close enough to attractions without being close to ridiculous traffic. Very quiet area. Communal campfire at 8 pm gives an opportunity to get to know other resort guests. Great discounts for attractions and golf at Cold Water Canyon Golf course. Truly one of most beautiful courses I've played.

The not so good: No wifi at our cabin, only at main desk. TV was old CRT with two or so working channels. Beds were hard. Limited kitchen, two burner electric cook top, no oven. Our porch didn't have a railing or spindles around it to keep little ones from taking a wrong step. No phones. A few burnt out light bulbs.

The beach walk was a bit long and the end of the trail is definitely not for those with problems with a steep decent or, on return, a steep ascent. This walk was completely worth it however.

Overall this is a very nice place but for a few inconveniences. The setting reminded me of Disney's Fort Wilderness

Room Tip: Don't know if it matters but I had seen a few tv satellite dishes on different cabins so they ma...

We had the best time at Birchcliff. The place is secluded yet very close to everything. The staff is super friendly, and the place is perfect for families. The pool is very clean, and the grounds are beautiful. We stayed for four nights and wanted to stay longer but the place was booked (I was not surprised). We went to the beautiful little beach, played tennis, cooked out. I twas awesome!

This was a wonderful, quiet, and rustic experience. It was very close to the tourist attractions of the Dells, and included in the stay were free passes to Chula Vista resort. It was, however, secluded enough to enjoy some quiet time. The cabins were clean and private.
The biggest asset to this resort, however, was the friendly and helpful staff. We arrived very late and the staff was just closing the books for the day. They not only let us check in, but let us take care of payment the next morning, and then walked us to our cabin with a flashlight. On our last day they let us check out late, and then invited us to stay to cook out lunch on their grills and use their pool!

If had to use one word to sum up my stay at The Birchcliff, it would be REMARKABLE! Staying at a cabin near a wooded area or somewhere secluded has always on my family's Bucket List. I tend to think that The Birchcliff was a lucky find. The staff was able to accommodate our last minute reservation (we visited during Memorial Day weekend) and waited for us way beyond normal check-in hours. The cabin provided a level of comfort not found in some 5 star rating hotels. The resort's amenities were perfect for all ages -- and the free pass to the neighboring water park was a BONUS! We absolutely loved our stay here and will certainly be visiting again (and again) in the near future.
