“Great Place for Groups, Young Kids and Pets”
Reviewed March 7, 2010

We just spent the weekend at Bakers with a group of friends and had an excellent time. It is a quiet place off the strip in the Dells but still 5 mins from everything. Our rooms and bathrooms were clean, no problems. They are older, but the balcony was nice to have even in the winter and we found the suites to be great for our kids and friends to gather in. The staff went out of their way to put our group in rooms right next to each other and were willing to accomodate last minute add-ons in our group. The staff was helpful and friendly. They gave us great tips on activities appropriae to our kids' ages and places to eat that are off the beaten path and therefore not as crowded, which was very nice as every hotel in the area was booked the weekend that we were there. Our kids, 9, 6, 4, loved the pool. We found it to be safe, as it was a shallow pool (2'6" to 4'6"), and clean for them to play in. They liked it as much as the big waterparks as they had the pool to themselves for half the visit. It wasn't so overwhelming to them. Kids older then 10 might not enjoy it as much given the size. We enjoyed the crazy tourist waterparks, shopping and big arcade centers and had some quiet time with the lake, woods and stars all in 1 weekend. We would recommend Bakers and will plan to visit again. It was an old school dells vacation, for a good value and it's nice to support a family run business rather than a chain.

This place was brilliant. I went in October with my husband, 3 children, and their shih tzu puppy. The kids went straight for the beach sports like volley ball, ping pong, and many more sports. Th lake was stunningly beautiful. The camp fire in the evening felt calming. We didn't go to it. Butjust watching it from our balcony was peaceful. We heard people their laughing and enjoying their time. The place provided a land where pets are allowed. It was really convinient, and closeto our room. So when the kids had to take their dog out they could quickly take her. The room provides treats for your dog, and 2 bowls for it to drink and eat out of. Which was really good. At the outdoor area for pets their is bag to pick up your dogs messes. Which was also a good ideafor dog owners. The pool was great. It ha two slides. One was large and my one older daughter went onit and said it as wonderful and fun. The otherone was for smaller kids. Perfect for them. I do not recomend eating here, all they give out is doughnuts. Not good to eat here at all. Thats the only problem. Our family went out to a restaurant to eat. If you do that the restaurants are really close. Out of all this, its was a fun, never forgetting trip. Lake Delton was beautiful, and peaceful. I recomend this hotel toeveryone wth a big family.

My family and I have been visting the Dells area for almost 20 years, sometimes twice a year and have never been let down by Baker's Sunset Bay Resort. We always request the same suite in the front by the kiddie pool area. It's a quite place where you can relax after a noisy busy day. I had a birthday party for my husband there with friends and they were very accomadating with suppling discount rates and their party room for us. My children look to this place as their second home. We joke at they should place a plack outside the door with our names. I would always recommend this place to others as I have done in the past. We love this place.

My family and I chose this property based on a friend-of-a-friend recommendation, and we were terribly disappointed. The room was run down and not clean at all. There was mold on our shower curtain, and the towels were so thin they might as well have been napkins. On top of the bad smell, since most rooms/cabins face the parking lot, it is noisy and the only views are of cars. The indoor pool was dirty and freezing, and the continental breakfast was insulting - cheap mini donuts and nasty coffee.

We couldn't leave our rooms fast enough each morning. Honestly, there are so many inexpensive places to stay in the Dells, I think Sunset Bay either needs to re-examine their rates (which are not cheap at all) or seriously upgrade/update their property.

I am mystified by the recent positive reviews of the resort, and I'm wondering if there are a few nice, clean rooms or cabins that are tucked away. Seriouly, unless you have a fondness for really rustic, non-commercial properties that are totally bare bones and not particularly up-to-date or clean, this is not the place to stay in the Dells.

Hello and thankyou for reading my review about the Sunset bay resort in the dells.
I have been staying at this resort and have never been disappointed.
I tell all my family friends to stay in Wisconsin Dells BEST kept secret because its off the beaten path of all the hustle and bustle of the busiest waterpark in the world!!
Dawn and all Her employees make your stay a warm and wonderful experience each and every time.Even when the Lake was gone for the season we still stayed and enjoyed exploring the missing body of water that hurt the town in so many ways. That says alot about the resort when you still come their with the lake gone!!
The sunset bay really goes that extra mile to make your trip feel like it was planned just for you and the family without all the craziness of the busy Dells strip of hotels.
This resort is tucked away on beautiful Lake Delton and offers all the amenities of a full service resort . We enjoy bringing our waverunners and playing all day on the lake and then just docking them right in front on the sandy beach!!

Kudos to the whole gang at The Sunset Bay Resort in Wisconsin Dells!!

The resort is pretty run down for the price. Reminded me of a super 8. Super 8 is better though. The breakfast was all carbs, no fruit, no choices, coffee was good. Breakfast only offered from 8-10. The pool area was very run down and dirty. Hot tub was nice but looking out of windows in need of repair. Sauna was good. There was only like 5 parking spots. Bottom line: with all the resorts offered at the Dells this is NOT the one to choose.
