I planned a bachelorette party weekend at the Wilderness on the Lake for 9 girls from September 7th-9th. I called ahead for the reservation because I wanted to make sure I had exactly the room and anemities that I wanted. The booking agent was very nice and very helpful. She answered all of my questions. I also had to call back prior to the trip to add on more guests; the agent I spoke with then was also helpful and friendly. When we got there check-in was a breeze. 3 minutes tops and we were on the way to the room. We stayed in condo room 320: a 2 bedroom equipped for up to 9 people. It was amazing. 2 fireplaces, a hot tub that 4 of us fit comfortably in and enough sleeping space for everyone. The rollaway bed was already in the room and they also had extra bath and dish towels waiting. There was another party of 6 adults staying next door to us and neither party could hear the other through the walls....which is impressive because when you get 9 giggling girls together it is not quiet. Overall the room was a 10, perfectly clean dishes in the kitchen, super clean bathrooms, I can not find one thing to complain about in the room.
The infinity pool on the Wilderness on the Lake property is absolutely beautiful (see picture). We spent most of the day at Wilderness' water parks and then relaxed the afternoon away in the heated infinity pool with beautiful views of Lake Delton. There is an outdoor bar not 50 feet away and if you go inside a door there's a dining/concession area. Great convienence.
The water parks at the Wilderness are great. They have so much to do that it is not at all crowded. The lines for the slides were very short, we never waited over 5 minutes. We found that almost all of the water in the outdoor areas was very warm, probably heated. It was only between 75 and 80 with a breeze and it never felt cold in the outdoor pools and lazy rivers. I was also surprised of how few small kids were running around. Maybe it's because they were in school but we found that there were alot of young adults and teenagers enjoying time with their friends. Kids primarily stayed in the areas designated for them so if you are considering this for an adult get away, it really is a great time.
To get to the other side of the resort where the water parks were we took the water taxi. I really don't think most people knew about it. There was a huge group of people wating for the shuttle busses out front and one of the desk clerks suggested we take the water taxi. The dock is behind the resort down from the infinity pool. The pontoon boat was large enough for at least a dozen people and only took about 5 minutes. The view of the resort from the lake is great and made for some nice pictures. It took us right to the other side of the lake where a shuttle was waiting to give us a 2 minute ride to any water park we wanted.
We were really sad to leave but surprised to find that checking out took 30 seconds, literally. I gave the room number and keys and they said, thanks have a great day...that was it! Overall, I give Wilderness an A+ for customer service, quality and value. This was my first time at the Dells and I will definately be going back; and definately staying at Wilderness on the Lake!
