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!
