“Best place we have stayed in a long time...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

All the praise that this place has gotten is true. The room was super clean: I ran my fingers through the top surfaces of furniture, appliances, and decorations without picking up a trace of dust. The mirrors were spotless. The Premier Lodge room #18 was larger than it appeared on the 3D virtual tour, with a queen bed, and a queen-sized bunk-bed! It was beatiful, and the river view was spectacular on March 28, 2013. The bathtub was wonderful, and the faucets appeared new without any signs of rust. My wife, my 7 yr-old daughter and our two guests all loved this place the same! I also wanted to mention that one of the staff members waited 15 minutes after closing time for us to arrive, of which we are very grateful! We congratulate the Cedar Lodge administration for paying close attention to every detail! It made our single night stay truly memorable.

Room Tip: Room 18 was wonderfully well kept. We loved it.

Cedar Lodge staff is very friendly. They were very accomodating and extremely helpful showing us where all the touristy things to do were located. The cabin we stayed in (#27) was beautiful and clean. I highly recommend to everyone to stay at Cedar Lodge. We will make this a yearly trip and stay at Cedar Lodge. We have been raving about our stay to all of our friends and several are interested in joining us on our next adventure. Can't wait to be back in the cabins!

Cedar Lodge is a great place to stay in Wisconsin Dells. It minutes away from all the craziness WI Dells has to offer yet it feels like an isolated cabin in the woods! We have made this trip a annual tradition to celebrate our girl's birthdays. The cabin is spacious, warm, and inviting.

Thanks for taking the time to review Cedar lodge again;) We hope the girls enjoyed another round of birthdays. I think it’s great you treat your kids to a vacation in the Dells. The Dells is to kids what Vegas is to adults. I imagine it’s something they will remember for a long time to come. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year. Chris-

This was our first time at Cedar Lodge and definitely not least. We were so happy to stay by the river; it is a such a quiet place. We enjoyed the view from our balcony- it's amazing. The room was clean. Our two girls spend lot of time in the pool. This year we are planning to come back and take our friends with us.

Room Tip: We stayed in room # 18 . It was clean. Kids loved a bunk bed.

We stayed in an awesome chalet room right along the woods. We couldn't believe how spacious and immaculate this room was. It even had an electric fireplace that gave off plenty of heat! This was our first time staying here and will definitely be back. We hope to come back in the summer and visit the outdoor waterparks, which are all very convenient to Cedar Lodge. This is the perfect location and had the best ammenities..hands down...we will definitely return soon!

Thank you for the review. We're pleased to know you enjoyed the cleanliness of the unit and the location of the resort. The beginning of June is a great time to come up and go to the water parks. Accommodations are more affordable and the crowds are still a couple weeks away from filling the parks. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Chris-

Beautifully kept and decorated. Perfect views. We can't wait to return this summer! Close enough to hiking/ski trails, and Mirror Lake State Park. Large deck. Will definitely be a place we come to often!

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Cedar has a wonderful location- Close to everything, yet you feel so far away from the hustle and bustle. Since you plan on staying here often, remember to bring your past guest certificate. You’re going to love staying here in the summer. The nightly bonfire by the beach is a great way to unwind after a long day. We look forward to seeing you again in a couple months. Chris-

My husband and I brought our three small children to Cedar Lodge and had a wonderful weekend. First and foremost, the staff was wonderful. We were getting in late on Friday night, so Chris made arrangements for us to be able to get our keys and she even made sure the lights in the suite were on so we would be able to see what we were doing once we got to our room. Then the next day, the man working (I cannot for the life of me remember his name) was very helpful getting each of my family members our wristbands for the indoor water park and helping us change our check out date to Monday instead of Sunday.
We stayed in suite 8 which has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, a dinning area, and a family room with a couch that has a pull out bed. We had five, but the suite could easily accomodate seven to eight people very comfortably. Everything was perfect and very clean. The suite was gorgeous and the view onto the river was breathtaking. The glass doors opened to a large porched in area that had a picnic area and a grill. Had it been warmer we would have spent our time out there!

Thanks for taking the time to review Cedar Lodge. Glad you and your family had a wonderful time while you were here. We will share your comments with the rest of the staff. Housekeeping works hard year round to keep the log units clean and comfortable. Hopefully the next time you’re here the weather will be warmer. Then the kids can play on the courtyard down by the river. Again thanks for sharing your experience and we look forward to your next stay. Chris-
