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.
