“Planning our trip back for next year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed here with 4 other families. Our kids had a blast and the parents loved it as well. The location was QUIET, and less than 5 minutes from the main drag. We enjoyed fishing on the river, swimming in the pool, the bonfire and took advantage of the free Chula Vista waterpark passes. Two families split a 2 bedroom cabin with a full kitchen so we were able to make meals which was nice. Next year we plan to stay longer and take advantage of the boat rentals and grilling area more. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The location of it wasn't perfect like a couple of the other reviews had said. And the staff there wasn't pleasant to talk to. They seemed like they didn't want to be there. ( I do however understand that it is a job and not many people like theirs.) I am not sure if I will be returning because it was a bit more pricey than it was worth.

The service here was excellent and very friendly (which is often hard to find in the Dells)! We rented cabin #27, which is on the end and across from the main lodge. Very convenient to everything (only a 5 minute ride to downtown) but removed from the hectic traffic and noise. A little piece of quiet in the heart of the Dells. The cabins are great for families. It may seem a little expensive, but when your traveling with 4+ people, it's less expensive than renting a hotel room and here you have your own house! Very clean and very friendly staff!

Room Tip: Cabin #27 is best

We stayed here last year and loved it so we had to try it again. This trip we stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin which was beautiful. The staff, Chris, Angie and Maria (especially Maria) are wonderful people and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. They were a great help in finding fun things to do and steered us away from the "less popular" attractions. We had a few issues that were resolved in a professional manner and we couldn't have been happier. The beach and pool are nice. There is a resort right next door where we rented a pontoon from and loved that it was so close. They have a nightly bonfire. Everyone here makes you feel like family. We will be back next year and refer friends. If I had to say anything negative...the only thing I can think of is better lighting in the bedrooms. The benches/areas were we put our luggage were so poorly lit I had to keep moving the suitcase to the bed to find things. That is the ONLY thing. This is a highly recommended place to stay!!!

Room Tip: Choose a one or two bedroom cabin or the master villa.

We stayed at the Cedar Lodge last weekend during a youth baseball tournament in the Dells. We had 10 families all staying on-site. Our experience could not have been better. The staff, quality of rooms, pool and extra activities made this place an incredible find. From the moment we arrived, the kids played on the beach and swam in the river and pool. We played bags and bocce ball, basketball and Frisbee (all available in the office). Every night we built a campfire and relaxed in the large "backyard" of the Cedar Lodge. It was clean, well maintained and as I mentioned before, the staff was awesome. Passes to the water park were included with our stay and we did utilize them the day we checked out. If you are looking for a really, really nice place to stay away from the crowded water parks (where you can spread out and enjoy your vacation) I highly recommend the Cedar Lodge.

Thanks! Love the title too, "A vacation in a vacation". We're so glad you stayed with us and that your experience "could not have been better". We have had baseball teams here before. We've never met such nice and respectful kids. They were truly well behaved kids with good manners. You guys are welcome back anytime. Hope to see you again soon. Chris-

This was our first time visiting Wisconsin and we could not have chosen a better location or better accommodations. From the moment I first contacted Cedar Lodge I knew this would be a trip to remember. The staff was courteous and offered many tips for making our trip a great one. The accommodations were beautiful, clean, and all we needed. We stayed in one of the cabin #31 and it felt like a home away from home. We had peace and quiet and were able to relax. Our kids (9 & 13) enjoyed the playground and pool. The swings and bonfire made for a great evening of family fun. The water parks were also wonderful. We visited early June so not too busy. Our only regret is that we learned we missed a great home-cooking dining opportunity right up the street from the lodge. This will be a definite stop on our next visit to the Dells.

Room Tip: We have only stayed in the private lodges and this was an excellent choice, however I heard from oth...

Green Features: Our sheets were changed upon request but our towels were changed daily as needed. The clean ones were left for use and only the ones which we had gathered up for collection were taken.

Thanks for choosing Wisconsin as your vacation destination. The Dells is kind of like the Las Vegas for families. We just have water parks instead of casinos. Sounds like, everyone had a wonderful time and made some lasting memories here at Cedar Lodge. We're thankful you decided to stay with us.

Glad you found the cabin beautiful, clean and well equipped. Housekeeping cares about Cedar Lodge as much as we do. They see the comfort and joy their efforts produce on a daily basis and they want guests to know they care.

Early June is good/smart time to visit the Dells. Everything is open, less crowded and the rates are more affordable for lodging. Again thanks for visiting WI and writing us this wonderful review. Till next time, Chris-

Loved staying at the Cedar Lodge. We stayed in unit #19 - it was very spacious and very clean. Staff was great. Loved that it was on the River and only about 5 to 10 minutes away from the busy town. Pool was warm. Balaconies were huge - had a picnic table and room for our own "comfy chairs". Loved having the community campfire every night - met lots of great people and even had it to ourselves one night. We stayed 5 nights and I can't think of anything bad. Would definiately stay here again.

Thanks for the great review. We're really happy that you loved your stay here at Cedar Lodge. Sounds like, the premier lodge room was a perfect fit for you and your family. We will definitely share your review with the rest of the staff. They appreciate when their hard work is recognized. The nightly bonfire is a great way to unwind after a busy day in the Dells. There’s nothing like making S'mores next to the river as the sunsets. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Chris-
