I just joined TripAdvisor, so i'm posting this review a couple years after we stayed there. It was a really nice, large, beautiful place, with log construction (must have cost a mint to build), in a great nature setting, and off the main "strip" of the Dells but still close
enough to everything.
The pools are great, there is an indoor kids pool which our kids loved (but it was cold when we were there), a large outdoor kids pool
with fountains, and a large outdoor adult pool, all fenced in. There's also an arcade, and there were nightly bonfires and they provided everything we need to make s'mores, for free.
I noticed some complaints in other reviews about the owner, Bill. I found him to be a nice old man who cares about the place and his guests, so I was really surprised to read those comments. Every day we were there, he was working hard all day around the place, and even planted hundreds of flowers. He could have been having a bad day, or had to deal with rude people the same way as he was being treated? I have no idea. He lives in the Chicago area, and owns the place with a couple partners. He drives back and forth to Chicagoland, 4 hours each way, and has been doing it for years and years. He definitely cares about the place, and it shows.
We really liked the place and would stay again. I would probably phone first and make sure the pools are nicely heated, though, before we arrived.
I can, however, understand why some people thought the staff were not very nice. I do remember the staff being that way. I just assumed
they didn't like their job. But it didn't affect our vacation, nothing was wrong with our reservations or room rate. But who knows, those people may not even work there anymore, we stayed there 2 years
So if you plan to check in, use your room to sleep, use the pools, see the Dells attractions, and have a nice family vacation, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here. But if you expect everything to be absolutely perfect, and want $400 Hilton service for $70 a night and plan to complain about everything, then don't stay here.
