This was my ninth trip to the dells, and my partner and I traveled with two friends of ours that have not been there. We shared a two room cabin with a full kitchen, deck and grill....for the price of $80 a night! Unheard of! As the icing on the cake, we always got to park right next to our cabin. There was always plenty of parking. Baker's Sunset Bay Resort is located on Canyon road, maybe 5 minutes from the downtown and "strip" area. So you don't have to deal with all of the noise and traffic like you do when you stay near one of these areas. Check in was easy...we arrived three hours before check in time, and there was no problem getting into our rental cabin. Upon arrival we received a Wisconsin Dells fun card (worth $10) being the deal finder that I am I already had one, but it will come in handy for our return trip late summer. As another bonus, each day you stay each person in your group gets a free pass to Riverview Waterworld...not the greatest waterpark in the area (lots of competition) but free passes worth $13.00 each none the less. We happened to be there during the first anniversary of the Lake Delton disaster, so they were hosting a number of events including a free cookout, and the tip that Tommy Bartlett's was doing a free show ($20 tickets)...they really go out of the way to make sure guests are informed, something I appreciate! Each day there was rainy weather (it happens early season) they would have a sheet of dry activity suggestions at the front desk along with directions, a very helpful gesture. The resort itself has so much to do right there that we probably wouldn't have needed to leave to have fun the whole time. There are several pools, both indoor and out...not to mention the lake. They offer free rowboats (life jackets to use too), a dock, and a HUGE, clean, and well maintained beach front area. On the beach is volleyball, ping pong tables, a playground, several dozen beach chairs, and the definite focal point...a large campfire area with lots of bench seating. One night at a late campfire we even encountered some curious wildlife! There is a free continental breakfast offered, and it is a nice gesture, but extremely limited so bring along some breakfast foods. This is the perfect place for an all ages, mellow, laid back vacation. All of this made it a "no brainer" for a return trip late summer. They offer a few coupons for their standard double queen rooms, making our next stay only $50 per night including tax! That is such an amazing deal! We cannot wait to return in a few months!
