Rib Mountain Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 Wausau B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Stayed at Rib Mountain Inn and was blown away at how nice it was. We had a 4 bedroom town house which was plenty of room for the 6 adults we had in our group. The beds were very comfortable and the house was immaculately clean. I will definitely stay here again if I am back in the Wassau area.

This was our first stay at the Rib Mountain Inn, and although they were in the middle of a remodeling project, we were very impressed. The room was large, clean, and had a wonderful view from the balcony. Although the Inn is close to town, it felt as though we were up north. We'll be back for sure!

Thanks for the stay. We are remodeling the facility, completing it in August 2014 and
take pride in being one of the cleanest hotels in the area. We appreciate the "up north" compliment to the hotel.

We stayed at this location to be close to Granite Peak. It was the closest hotel to the site but we still had to drive because the "path" was too far to walk with the equipment. The room was small, old and not particularly well kept. The common areas of the hotel were dirty and gross. To cover up the musty smell they had air freshener plug ins all over the place. Yuck! I would not recommend this hotel.

The walk to the Ski Hill is 700 ft and next year we are planning a snow ride service. We are new owners as of March 2014 and are doing a new remodel. Sorry your stay was not as expected and we will work to be one of the best stays in Wausau area in the near future.

we stayed to go skiing last weekend and there were many issues. hot breakfast ran out when we went down at 9:30 and an older from desk lady tammy I think was her name is the most rude person I have ever encountered. she does not belong working in customer service. I don't believe we will go back as long as she works there!

Great location, short walk to Granite Peak ski resort. which made it nice not hassling with the car after a long day of skiing.

Yes the rooms were dated but friendly staff at the front desk and during breakfast made our stay feel more like a mountain lodge than your typical hotel chain. New owner Mitch, shared his remodel and update planned for this spring.

Complimentary hot and cold breakfast was very convenient before hitting the slopes.

Look forward to next ski season at Rib MT Inn.

Rented Villa 7 with a group of friends last weekend! Although a bit pricey, we rented this due to it's close proximity to Granite Peak Ski Area. The Villa was a bit spartan, but immaculately clean. It was WAY MORE spacious than expected. Sleeps 8 comfortably, but lots of room for air matresses if needed. The master closet was bigger than the "bunk room." We LOVED having the end unit and loved the fireplace and full kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need. We only wish there was a gas grill outside for grilling, but otherwise it was perfect. This place is super close to the slopes (a short walk) and the outdoor hot tub near main lodge was fun as well. I'd say it's about an equal value to nearby hotels because you can cook all your own food. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be back!

Room Tip: Villa 7 is the end unit

We stayed here because we were visiting a family member living in a nearby assisted living home. Staying in a hotel with a toddler is a nightmare so it was extremely convenient to have all the comforts of home.

The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the room was very comfortable.

On one morning they served a hot breakfast and every other day there was a continental breakfast available.

We didn't ski and didn't take advantage of the hot tubs but this was a family visit... not a vacation.

We would definitely stay here again.
