“Beautiful and Quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I'd never been to the Dells before and I read reviews on almost every hotel/resort in the area. We picked this one because of it's location and atmosphere. This is off the main drag, so it is very quiet and the owners keep it that way with enforcing quiet hours after 10:00 pm. We stayed in one of the villas facing the water, so it was really pretty sceanery. We had a balcony, grill, patio set, fireplace, just about everything to make you feel at home; we felt more like we were at a house vs. a hotel. They had EVERYTHING in that place, including the kitchen sink. There are dishes, pots & pans, an electric burner stove, fridge, microwave, etc. Now, you do have to clean up after yourselves so don't think you can dirty all the dishes and housekeeping takes care of it. :-) So, it's literally like going up to "your cottage". We loved and it and will stay again if we make it back there again!

Thanks for the great review. There are a lot of great places to choose from in the Dells area. We are so happy you chose Cedar Lodge as your vacation destination. Your right, the lodge feels more like a house than a motel. The lodge is made up of 19 units overlooking the river. Since the units are made out of log. You don't hear your neighbors and the units feel cozy, warm and comfortable. Quiet hours start at 10:00 PM, but even when we have no vacancies the property is peaceful and quiet. The river and the location have a relaxing, calming effect/atmosphere. This makes Cedar Lodge a unique place to stay in the Dells. We hope you make a return visit to the Dells again sometime. We would love to welcome you back. Thanks again for the review and your business. Chris-

this Lodge has very large units, all with a view of the water. During peak months the outdoor pool is open and the beach looks clean and well maintained. The mega water parks are but 5 minutes
away as well as many places to eat. Cedar Lodge rooms are immaculate when you check in and
are immaculate when you come back at the end of the day. No restaurant on site but many to
choose from within blocks of this resort. I can't say enough about the fantastic service we received from reservations to check in and checking out.

Room Tip: Go on-line and you can view every room before booking your choice. The chalet style cottages are no...

Thanks for taking the time to review Cedar Lodge. Your review is very descriptive and well written. I could visualize the property and the surrounding area with ease. We're glad you enjoyed your time here and found the property and your unit to be clean and immaculate. Housekeeping works very hard and wants every guest to relax and feel comfortable. Cedar Lodge's housekeeping staff is amazing. They care about every aspect of their duties and take pride in offering every guest great service. Great room tip too- every unit is displayed individually on the website, with pictures and virtual tours. This way guests can see exactly what the unit looks like before they arrive. They can also check the site map to view the location of the unit number. We look forward to welcoming you back again sometime soon. Take care, Chris-

Friendly staff that greeted us by name and gave some great recommendations on restuarants and spa services. Room was resonably priced, cozy, quiet, clean, and beds were confortable. Nice to have the soap dispensers in the tub to use. The Fresh towels daily were appreciated. Close to downtown, and surrounding areas, yet far away for a peacful stay. Due to season and weather, the beach and pool were not used. Great area for walking and/or running. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in Unit 1, it was plenty big for 4 adults.

Thank you for the review. We're glad you ladies had a good time while you were here. Thanks for the compliments of staff and unit. Your right when you write about the great places to walk/run nearby. The lake is only a couple hundred yards to the west and the resort is located right on the river. They recently put a new bike/walking path around the lake. Thanks for the room tip and we would love to have you stay again at Cedar Lodge. Chris-

We had another great weekend there. The manager, his wife and staff were all very, very, good to us. The cabin was more than I could ask for. It was neat, clean and very comfortable. The hot tub was big enough for 2 comfortably. We walked down by the river and were meet by some ducks. It was very relaxing. I will stay there again. The fridge was big enough to bring food and beverages. I would recommend this to all my friends and family. We had a good recommendation by Maria for take out the first night we were there and it was very good.

Thanks for another great review. Sounds like you have a great time every time you stay here. We're happy to know the cabin was more than enough. The ducks are great, we love having them here at the resort. We appreciate you spreading the word about Cedar Lodge. We'll let Maria know you enjoyed her suggestions for takeout. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Chris-

We stayed in cabin 27 and loved it! Super clean and close enough to the dells but also felt like we were in the secluded woods. Right on the wisconsin river. We loved it!!!!! Cannot say enough about how beautiful our cabin was. The people in the office are super nice and helpful.

we stayed here for three days in September. We had a room with one king bed, fridge and microwave. Room had a balcony. The room looked out over the river, was a great room and beautiful view. The staff was very friendly, the grounds were perfect, there was a pier and was a short walk to a park on the river. Also there is a restaurant within walking distance. Will definately go back

Found Cedar Lodge on trip adviser. It was rated very high. Was coming up to Wisconsin Dell area for the first time and wanted a peaceful place to stay. It was excellent. Property manager , Maria , was very good about explaining all the lodge had to over as well as things to do in the area. We stayed for 2 nights. Fun and relaxing.
