“Quite Get Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Stayed here three days and two nights with my boyfriend. The weather sucked but the view from our suite was amazing. The room had everything!! from a radio to kitchen utensils, even coasters! The employees there were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back but in the summer of course. I recommend this place it was great. Plus you get a coupon book for events and attractions nearby, even restaurants that deliver!! Thanks the employees for being great! Loved Cedar Lodge. They even gave us a coupon if we return.

Room Tip: Ask what is exactly available in the suite/lodge you are booking

We stayed two nights here and loved it! The room far exceeded my expectations being both comfortable and charming decoration wise. The location of cedar lodge was ideal for us being close to the downtown area but just far enough away that when you looked out over the balcony and saw the WI River it seemed you were on a rustic retreat.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and this past weekend for his birthday. The first time we got a whirlpool suit and the view was spectacular even in the midst of winter! This past weekend in October we stayed in a one bedroom cabin "27", and this place is so charming. My husband and I walked in and both said "WOW" we could not believe how gorgeous it was and so warm and friendly. The whole experience from getting your keys from the front desk to the moment you step through the door to begin your well deserved vacation. We will keep coming back because you just can't find places like this anymore...this time were bringing the kids :)

Thank you for the review. Glad you and your husband enjoyed both of your visits here at Cedar Lodge. The winter is an amazing time to view the river. Cabin #27 is a beautiful cabin, perfect for couples or a small family. We say "wow" too when we walk in to that cabin. Thanks for the kind words. We really look forward to your next stay with the kids. Chris-

Oh my goodness, where to even begin?! My husband and I stayed in Unit 12 for three nights to celebrate our first Anniversary. This place was way better than what we had expected. The front office staff was extremely friendly and made us feel welcome when we arrived. We opened our unit to find a complimentary bottle of wine and small box of chocolates on the table to celebrate our Anniversary. What a special touch!

We were blown away by the cleanliness of the unit, how cozy it felt, but at the same time, how spacious it was. The carpeting was clean and plush, not your typical hotel carpeting. The bed was comfortable. The shower got HOT and had good water pressure. We were surprised to discover that not only did our unit have a mini fridge/freezer (perfect for storing our wedding cake until Anniversary night!), but it also had a microwave, coffee pot, and toaster. It was nice to be able to do a little grocery shopping and prepare breakfast in the room each morning. They even have dishes and silverware for you to use!

We were pleasantly surprised that even though we only stayed for three nights, we got fresh towels every day and they even vacuumed! We could see the vacuum lines in the carpet, and it was comforting to know that they take such good care of the unit.

We loved the log cabin feel. It felt like we were miles away from anything in a peaceful secluded area, but the reality is that all of the attractions are only 5-10 minutes away! It was the most perfect location. We were so sad to leave, and can guarantee that we will be returning some day soon. We simply LOVED this place!! Thank you, Cedar Lodge, for helping make our Anniversary getaway so special!

Room Tip: When you book, be sure to request a specific unit, as they are all different. Take the virtual tour...

Your welcome, thanks for the nice review. We know how special anniversaries can be, especially your first. Glad you enjoyed the wine and chocolates. Unit #12 is a very nice unit with great decorations and lighting. The housekeeping staff is top notch and they appreciate your observations. It's important to have really clean units. Cleanliness is something we can control and way for us to protect the owners investment. Really happy to read you "loved" Cedar Lodge. We loved having you stay and thanks again for choosing us for your 1st anniversary destination. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Chris-

Stayed one night at cedar lodge with my mom and my baby. We were in unit 24 which had a nice view of the river, a separate bedroom and a great kitchenette and fireplace. Loved that this place was a few miles away from the craziness of the dells. I would highly recommend the location and the place. The river is gorgeous and we were sad to not have the chance to pitch a canoe into the waters.

We stayed in unit 28 , "The Rats". This cabin is fully loaded. It had 4 queen beds, one in each of the two bedrooms and two in the sleeping loft. There were two full bathrooms and an eat in kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, oven, pots and pans the works. Just bring your food! The living room has a large comfortable couch with a large TV and a fireplace. The sleeping loft, which my kids just loved, also had a TV and plenty of room to play! The cabin had a large porch were you can have meals and a BBQ for grilling. It was located in a quite area that was just beautiful and within walking distance (2 minute walk) to a lake. There were many things nearby including several indoor water parks (I recommend the Chula Vista indoor park if you have little ones). We were traveling with our family of four (2 adults and 2 kids) and another couple. We had more than enough space. This cabin would be great for a family with multiple kids or extended family but would also be the perfect place for a romantic getaway. It is finished nicely inside, with wood beams and region themed accessories that add charm. One of the most enjoyable and relaxing destinations I have been to in a long time. Can't wait to go back! I should note that we went in the off season and found plenty to do.

Room Tip: Not all Cabins are the same. They have different ammenities. #28 is tops!

Thanks for the nice detailed review. Glad to know cabin #28 had all the amenities and space to make your family comfortable. The resort is peaceful and relaxing during all seasons of the year. The Dells is becoming a year round place of activities. Your right there is plenty of things to do in the off season and Chula Vista’s water park is perfect for the little ones. We can’t wait for you to come back too. Chris-

This is the second stay we had at Cedar Lodge....once was 11 years ago, most recent was this past weekend! We were pleasantly surprised with the friendly staff, our cabin was nicely refreshed and very clean and you cannot beat the location! We have been visiting the Dells for over 30 years, and this location is close enough to the "action", but far enough away to feel as though you are in a secluded area of the Wisconsin woods. Our 3 children enjoyed walking to the local dock for fishing (we caught many sunfish and bass), the s'mores bonfire every evening and watching the Wisconsin Ducks drive right past our cabin numerous times throughout our stay! We highly recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: We stayed in cabin #30, it was well worth missing out on the lake view...this kids loved the upstair...
