We just came back from the Tamarack Saturday after a 7 day stay with Travel Advantage Network (TAN member since 1988) and I am very happy with the resort offerings. And just 2 short miles from Downtown Wisconsin Dells, but, its closer to all the water parks. It’s also a 5 minute drive rite to the Wilderness and the Great Wolf, you can drive by and make fun of all the people who just overpaid for their stay in the Dells... If you like wooded out of the way areas with open space, peace and quiet this is the place for you. The ducks (not the boats) come by your place and will wait to see if you are willing to feed them and then move on. As I was packing to leave, a mama duck stopped by with all her babies, hung around for a bit and it was a very welcome treat for my two kids who came out to enjoy the company before they moved on to the next condo unit and before we departed to go back home.

We stayed in the Birch condo unit which is in the middle of everything on the property and puts you walking distance between the recreation center (Very impressive) with the indoor pool, game room, exercise room, racquet ball and more, the outdoor pool by the kids play ground, tennis and volley ball courts, the laundry facilities, the maintenance facilities and the fully stocked Hummingbird lake with plenty of active fish for your kids or adults. And at this point I will not give away any fishing secrets here, this is something you have to experience for yourself. All you have to do at this place in the morning is wake up, make breakfast and head out after you have planed your days activities at the Tamarack or in the Dells. Oh and DON’T forget to plan one evening at the Big Sky Drive in, it’s only 20 minutes away. Also, the best activity for the cost to get in, is to take your family to Circus World in Baraboo. It was very cool, I was just amazed. Be sure to pick up a Dells Coupon book, it will give you many great saving , including 2 for 1 to Noah’s Ark for the day.

To this day I have not been disappointed with the TAN Property offerings. With TAN or without TAN this is a great bargain to stay in the Dells, you will leave exhausted and happy.

The ONLY con, which is tiny little blip is the GPS puts you at the very beginning of Xanadu Road in some residential section. I’ve seen that complaint on other reviews. But if you keep driving past the express way towards the Walmart sign (Rt23) on Xanadu Road as soon as you pass up the hill, you are home for the week.

This was a great family trip and an even better place to stay… I Can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: Birch is in the center of the property

This was our first time to stay here and loved it! Beats the heck out of staying in hotels. Nice amenities with indoor and outdoor pools and tennis courts, the indoor courts are in much better shape than outdoor ones. The walks were so pretty with pond, ducks, rock waterfall and well-kept grounds. Lots to do here. Didnt even have to go into the Dells unless we wanted to. Everything has been remodeled...activity center, offices, rooms, etc. very clean and modest. We had a 2 bedroom (one of which was a loft), 2 full-sized bathrooms, full kitchen, dining area, den with fold-out couch. All beds were comfortable queens. Kitchen was well equipped with utensils, dishes, etc. *Could've used a non-stick pan for frying breakfast tho Went to Wal-Mart close by & bought one*. Very convenient resort location and out of the way of the tourist congestion. That part was very nice. Check-in process was a tad tedious, but service was excellent and friendly. Value was great also. 6 of us stayed comfortably...2 adults, 2 nineteen yr olds and 2 sixteen yr olds. We had a great time. We would definitely stay here again!!!!

Weekend stay for family with 2 younger kids. They loved the pool, check out bikes, paddle boats, kids playroom, and raquetball court. Wish we had more time to try out the tennis courts, activity sessions, horse shoe pits, and resort campfires. They are family friendly and welcoming. Only negative was the size of the complex, and hills made the walking/biking between the activity center and the unit a bit of a work out.

The resort is located right in between Mirror Lake State park and all the hustle and bustle of the downtown Dells. The Condos are roomy and comfortable. Some could use updating so if things like flat screen tv's are important to you, you should request an updated condo. Some aren't. Overall we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the resort amenities. One indoor pool, one out. Great indoor tennis courts, workout room and racket ball. Even a nice little arcade for the kids. The resort offers complimentary peddle boats as well. Plenty of space to relax and our own patio area with a charcole grill. We did have an issue with a flooded toilet and the resort maitenance and manager resolved the issue as quickly as they could. Good customer service and it was appreciated. If your looking for a nice roomy place with all the comforts of home this would suffice quite well. We enjoyed out get away very much.

Room Tip: You can request an updated room if available but all the condos are very comfortable. Views of towering pines, pool, pond and waterfall. Really just depends on what you may like. We loved the evergreen area in back by the pines. Very quiet and very pretty.

We stayed here for 5 days having swapped our Timeshare week. The weather was cold, but we arrived to find the heater had been put on prior to our arrival, so it was lovely and warm. Everything we needed was in the apartment, however it could do with a refurbishment. the bedroom would fit a king-size bed, and could be re-arranged so the closest door does not hit the bedside table when it is opened. Also, the lounge could be re-configured for more comfort.

Room Tip: WE stayed in Evergreen 29, which was quiet although a bit far from the Guest Laundry (we drove to it).
