“Depends on What you are Looking For”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This Resort is, as many reviewers indicated, somewhat of a step into the past. The rooms, although extremely clean, have a "past ear" feel to them in design (Frank Lloyd Wright) and decoration. If you are looking for a place to watch TV and access the internet for work or games, this is not the place for you. The TV's are old and analog. The available internet is "spotty", with great coverage in some rooms, and absolutely none in others. Cell phone service throughout is very poor (Verizon) to non-existent (AT&T) depending on your carrier, as the Resort is somewhat remote, and sits in a valley. On the other hand, there are 27 holes of beautiful and well-maintained golf course, and the restaurant on site provides excellent, tasty and well prepared meals. There are two indoor pools -- one for lap swimming and one for just enjoying the water -- and a hot tub. Tennis courts are available. Lots of great walking paths, trails, and roads. The beds are comfortable (although the pillows are not), and it is exceptionally quiet for sleeping. Although we do not have any at this time in our lives, I do not think this would be a good place for younger children as there is very little to do in the immediate area. Spring Green is 10 minutes away, and, other than a few good restaurants, there is not much to do there. The Wisconsin River is close, however, and kayak and canoe rentals available. The staff is average to good in terms of being helpful and attentive. All in all a great place for a wedding, golf, or quiet couples stay, but if you are looking for a modern atmosphere, business meeting, or a working vacation, this is likely not the place. Normal rates are high for what you get, but there are many specials and "bargains" available for groups.

Room Tip: All rooms have beautiful golf course views and balconies. The room set-ups vary according to bed ty...

We had a business meeting with 45 people attending. Everyone was very pleased with the location and facility. The rooms were nice and we had beautiful views from our balconies. The resort is located in a very peaceful rural area - great opportunity to relax. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the wait staff was very attentive. The golf course was beautiful and we had an excellent day on the course.

This place was pricey for what it was. While the room was very clean and large, the bedding was old and pilled, there was no information in the room - not even a brochure explaining the amenities. The location was ideal for the American Players Theater and the shuttle was appreciated but the service was poor. The front desk people seemed less than thrilled with their jobs. The most annoying part though was the complete inavailability of anything to eat which we found odd because it is a resort and far removed from town. Upon returning from the play at 11:00 PM, we were told the kitchens had closed at 10:00, the gift shop had only a few candy bars and the vending machines were almost empty.

My husband and I stayed a Sunday and Monday night in September at the resort. It was the perfect, relaxing get-away that we were hoping. It was extremely peaceful and quiet. The pool and hot tub area was great, as was the spa, the view from the balcony, the friendly and helpful staff and the workout room. They have many miles of well-manicured hiking trails around the property that were terrific (it's hilly...so be prepared for a workout!). We enjoyed a meal at the main restaurant, as well as their pub food as we watched a game at the pub/bar the second night.

We went to the House on the Rock, and walked through two parts one day, and the third part the next day, which worked well (thanks to a prior reviewer who gave this suggestion). We also found a gem of a cave (Cave of the Mounds) nearby.

There were some reviewers who complained about the age of the hotel. It was not build or remodeled very recently, but that did not make it bad. It is very well-maintained and was well designed. We liked the large suit layout of the rooms, and especially appreciated the heavy (surely expensive) wood doors separating the bedroom from the bathroom from the sitting room. I could get up early and get ready in the bathroom with the TV on in the other room, and no noise could be heard in the bedroom to disturb my husband.

My husband likes to golf, although he didn't play while we were at the resort, but he thought the course looked terrific, too.

While the service was received was good, we were disappointed in the high price and lack of modernization. We could not get cell reception, and our room looked like it was fresh from the 70's.

The restaurant was nice, but we were disappointed that we could not bring in our own wine (the restaurant did not have any high end wines available) and just pay a corking fee. If you want couples to celebrate here, then you need to have the flexibility or fare to allow folks to splurge.

Stayed here with my daughter for 4 nights right after Labor Day weekend. As far as other reviews indicating the facilities are dated, I would say the most obvious thing in our room was the television sets need to be switched out for thin, flat panels. They are still the big boxy style. I would also agree with poor reviews of the bedding. The bedspreads desperately need updated to something more modern. Ours had several places where the stitching was coming unstitched. The pillows, while plentiful, are of poor quality. That said, the rooms are all suites. The mattress was comfortable. Our room was very clean and well equipped. The lobby and pool area seemed very clean also. The pool area is great - two large indoor pools and a large hot tub. The clerks at the desk, while not rude, were not overly friendly or helpful. There is no bell service at this hotel. We did not eat at the restaurant or use the spa facilities. The best thing about this hotel is its location - just down the road from Taliesin, and right next to American Players Theatre. About 5 miles from House on the Rock attraction.

This would be a great place to stay if it were not so over priced. We paid over $200 per night. I would totally agree with kaptravel, "The furniture is mid 80s and the carpet was worn and stained. The bathroom layout is straight out of a motel in the 70s. It desperately needs an update." and add that the blankets and pillows were of poor quality. We didn't try any of their other facilities

It has two things going for it- The view is spectacular and it is very close to American Players Theater, which is the primary reason for staying there
