“Wonderful Surprise”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were expecting the place to be so so. It was very pleasant. the condo was extermely clean. Beds all above average. Kitchen well equipped. The kids enjoyed the activities. It was nice to be able to relax while in the Dells instead of having to be constantly doing the crazy activities. Cooked breakfast in the room each day. Cant wait to go back next year.

We attended a family reunion in August of this year and several of the families chose to stay at the Tamarack Resort and we were not disappointed. Of the families that stayed here, we were all in units right by each other which made it very convenient for all the get togethers we had. Having a unit with all the amenities we needed was a godsend. We could cook and entertain with no problems. The rates are very reasonable and we will stay here again. Even if you are not in the area for a family reunion this would be a great place to stay to enjoy all the other things there are to see and do in the Wisconsin Dells!!! Great place, great stay!!!

I was expecting less than a decent stay because of all the reviews I had read prior to leaving for our week long vacation at this resort. I had even called the week before our stay to make sure that they had their bed bug infestation resolved or that our units were not affected at all. They assured us that it was not an issue at all in our unit and that ours was updated and clean. We stayed in the community Oak and unit #4.

When we arrived with our family of 4 we were pleasantly surprised. The unit was a great size, updated and the decor was classy. It was clean and had all the essentials for our week long stay. A fully stocked kitchen so we could cook meals. They provided a clean pack and play and a highchair for our 1 year old and extra bedding for our four year old. The bed was comfortable and we slept well each night. We liked not being right in the heart of the Dells and a little off the beaten path. Perfect because it was quiet and private, backing up to a wooded area. Relaxing and wonderful for my two boys to run around in a backyard, walk to and around the lake. The highlight was the area ducks that visited us daily. We also grilled a couple nights as there is a grill right out the back of the unit.

I have two (small) complaints though. The grounds, they really need to be maintained better. So many dandelions in the grassy area it made it difficult to walk through or kick a ball which my boys loved to do. Also, when we arrived our TV did not work at all. We did call maintenance and they replaced it immediately.

Oh and I have to mention also the main check in area and building. They have a kids play room, the indoor pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, a big exercise room and an arcade room. So much fun and we spent almost an entire day there when it was raining. And they have a book filled with movies to rent.

I would definitely recommend Tamarack & Mirror Lake and would likely return.

Room Tip: Stay at or near the Oak community, these are updated 1 bedroom townhome-like suites.

We are happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Tamarack and Mirror Lake and your time in the area. We are glad your children enjoyed the amenities and property, and we will certainly look at doing something about the dandelions and making the ground easier to play on.

Me and a friend decided to stay an extended weekend in the Dells as a late summer relaxing get away. I was told about a Groupon deal of buy two nights get your third free here for a condo. When my friend called the number on the groupon page they said you could just come in to get the same deal and that their office closed at nine pm. Our gps stated nine o five we would reach the location. So I drove a little quicker to make it on time at they stated the office closed exactly at nine, and wouldn't stay any later. When we arrived on time they stated they don't take walk ins as told on the phone. We drove to the Dells over three hours and were left without a place to stay. I feel this is bad business and I wouldn't ever consider staying here again. Obviously whoever picks up that number on groupon's page should get their facts straight, and communicate with the front desk who was not accommodating. This isn't the way to run a business in a rough economy. Your trying to drum up business by providing deals, and doing nothing but upsetting people...counterproductive. Fail!!

We got 5 free nights from a friend who traded their Vegas ( really plush ) timeshare for a week at Tamarack. ... BAD TRADE !!!!!! This place is REALLY dated. Good points.... it was free for us , it was equipped for cooking.. pots, pans , dishes, full size fridge , stove , micro , toaster , blender , dishwasher. Couldn't hear any neighbors. Bad points.... Super small bathroom with NO counter space , well I guess you didn't need counter space cause you didn't get ANYTHING but soap. So when we went to put stuff under the sink .. we couldn't , because there was a filthy rodent trap down there. You did get some long black hairs at no charge , thanks .Other " No Charge " features included...a dirty Kleenex on the floor , plastic wrap from the paper towel roll , a dirty cleaning towel and earwigs on the kitchen counter and a broken screen on the patio door....sooo bugs could get in if you left the door open. Some other surprises were the dirty living room rug , No washer & dryer and only one packet of coffee for the whole week. The screen on our laptop was larger then the TV in the bedroom and the one in the living room wasn't much bigger. The small pool was always full of kids. The people were pleasant but that didn't overcome all of the negatives. We will Never come back ...even if it's free.
