“great place, wonderful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went for a quick weekend getaway and since they didn't have a hotel room for us for both nights of our stay they gave us a kitchenette right on the beach with two bedrooms. It was perfect. We loved the view of the lake, fed the ducks and enjoyed a campfire with the other guests. Our 13 year old son had fun in the pool and game room. The staff was very kind and accomodating. We'll be back!

Room Tip: were always all about a water view and this is on a beautiful cove

The property has a relaxing environment. The staff was very courteous. The grounds are clean and well maintained. We loved the fact we could bring our dog. Unit G or 510 is a great unit to rent since it has a full kitchen and two separate bathrooms and bedrooms. We are definitely planning on returning.

I'm not sure why other reviews are negative. Obviously this is not a brand new resort, but it is well maintained and we had a wonderful stay. I will suggest it to my family and friends.

Disappointed. I was not expecting a luxory resort, but i did expect the minimum of amenties. The towels are very small and most of them you can see through. If you could not see through them, then they had previous customer's hair on them. Pulled back the sheets on both of my beds, that were in the room and both beds had someone elses hair in them. Many stains on the floor that I can only asume were made from pet that stayed in the room. The room smelled of old wet dog. I went to the store to buy an air freshener and it barely took care of the smell.

I'm sorry your stay was not satisfactory and I apologise. If only you had made us aware of the problems you had, we would have done everything in our power to make you more comfortable. We would have gladly moved you to a different room, upgraded you, changed your sheets, etc. As far as the towels go, we do use a very nice quality towel and I've not had complaints about the size of our towels.
Again, I am sorry we were not able to meet your expectations.
Sincerely,
Dawn Baker
Owner / General Manager

My mom and I, along with two cousins, stayed for three nights at the resort. We had standard double queen rooms with a private patio. The rooms were nice, beds were very comfortable and clean. The resort itself is a great place for those who want to get away from the traffic of the Dells. It has a private beach, with volleyball, kids play area, picnic tables and grills. There are boats and kayaks for the guests use, and a place to have a fire in the evenings. There are indoor and outdoor pools, and a spa and hot tub indoors. Property is well maintained and clean, very close to all major attractions, but you would never know given how quiet it was. We went the weekend after Labor Day, and it was wonderful. The deck is a great place to have coffee in the morning. Our only issue was that housekeeping didn't replenish our coffee/sugar on the second day, and seemed a little lax with their cleaning. A short trip to the office solved the coffee problem. I will definitely return. It is great if you like a little nature and quiet when you vacation!

Room Tip: We will definitely choose a lake view room next time, well worth the extra money!

It is not as nice as the pictures. We had 4 rooms on the lower level(beachfront). Location was nice but the rooms smelled musty, Bad musty! Carpets were stained. We complained about the musty smell and we finally got to talk to the manager the morning we checked out. She did nothing just told us we should have asked for a dehumidifier. The one room already had one and it still smelled. The bathroom was clean but the toilet was not bolted to the floor??? so it moved when you sat on it. We did check other beach front resorts while we were there. Much nicer and cheaper. Oh ya... we paid extra to have beach front rooms and they stunk! The beds are comfortable.

This was our fourth stay at Sunset Bay and once again, it was great. We stayed in the two bedroom/one bath duplex unit and while it was not lakeside, the extra space was appreciated. We were able to park our truck and boat trailer close to our unit which made unloading and loading super easy. The unit itself was nicely decorated and included a full kitchen and a private deck. The grounds are well maintained and the boat dock allowed us to keep our boat in the water during our stay. I booked my reservation online but at check-in, staff was very professional and offered coupons for local attractions. I'm already checking my calendar for next years stay!

My family and I really enjoyed the resort. There was so much to do at the resort. Even after going to explore the Dells the kids still had things to get into back at the resort. The private beach with canoeing, volley ball, the pool and splash pad, the grills. I mean it had the works. The room was clean and we did not end up cooking but there was a small kitchen space. The people were really nice and it was very family friendly. The only thing that I did not like was the pull out couch. That thing was so uncomfortable it took about a week to get my back in order. But the actual beds were comfortable. Our 1 BR slept 5 of us (but because I was left on the sofabed in the living room I cannot say comfortably). But everyone else reported they had a great night.
They also had a snack bar. The resort was off to the side but still close enough to everything (a few minutes away)
