“A very nice place to stay...great view...”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

First of all, please try to book a room on the THIRD floor. I forgot this was a tripadvisor recommendation someone else made the year before when I investigated, and I ended up with a room on the second floor. It wasn't bad, but the view of Lake Delton from the third floor is much better. Nikki (front desk) was simply the best. She had one other room available and let us look at it to see if we liked it better. Very accommodating. Overall, I love WOTL. I have had two very positive experiences there 2 years in a row. The staff is very nice, the condos are very clean and I love that you can grill outside at your leisure. I wish there was more of a little walking path around so you could take a little after dinner stroll, but there really isn't much of one. As for the resort overall, some of the water play areas could use a little updating, they need a little makeover.

Room Tip: On the third floor, away from the main entrance to the floor...a little foot traffic therefore a lit...

The reviews were so luke warm, our expectations weren't high, but this was a REALLY nice vacation. The 2 bedroom condo was spacious, well laid out, well equipped and very cozy. We loved grilling and eating dinner out on the large shared patio with fun music and great views. The infinity pool was terrific & Cubby Cove was great for our 6 year old. Loved the "swirl pool" - shuttles & water taxis to the other Wilderness properties was friendly and efficient. Sitting in the hot tub on our lanai with a fire going was really relaxing. Maybe this hotel is under renovation because our room was definitely recently done. Very clean & comfortable. One note, there is NO service whatsoever on the rooms. They say they remove trash & replace towels each day, but that's not true. You're really on your own. Also, bring your own pan... the ones they have are very difficult to cook with. Overall, very comfortable & nice. Great stay.

I have been staying here for 6 years. It is beautiful being on the lake. We stay in sept. and May. I love having the full kitchen and we ALWAYS get a walk out. There are grills and fire pits with tables. It could use an updating, carpets are run down and the staff has never been to friendly.
They have shuttle service.
They have car service to Sundara.
Some units are owned
Right on the lake.

We rented the two bedroom condo. It was fabulous and overlooked Lake Delton and the outdoor waterpark.. Very spacious, with two bedrooms plus two sofa beds, it could easilty accomodate 2 famlies! The waterparks were amazing as well. The full kitchen is a geat beneifit as you save so much on shopping.

We wanted a waterpark vacation that was relaxing, too. The rooms are far enough from the main hotel to be loud and crowded yet close enough to take advantage of all the wilderness has to offer. Loved the infinity pool.

We usually stay at Great Wolf Lodge or Kalahari, but we booked a last minute trip to the Dells and decided to try something different.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo. Plenty of room for a family of 5 (including 3 teenagers). The full kitchen was nice and we also enjoyed the whirlpool tub on the 4 season porch. Gorgeous view of the lake.

Our check-in was the fastest that we've ever had in the Dells. And our room was ready 3 hours early. The waterpark at the resort was fairly small. There was an inside area that would be great for younger children. The outside pool was more for relaxing and enjoying the view.

You can either take the water taxi or a shuttle over to the main waterparks or resturaunts. We never waited more than 5 minutes.
The waterparks are spread out, but the maps are very helpful and easy to read. We had the best time in the wavepool. But I would NOT bring small children in the pool. It's very rough and easy to get hurt or worse.

Overall, it was a fun trip. I don't think that we would stay here or at the Wilderness during the winter time. But it's a great summer vacation. Plus, we left some things in our room and they mailed them back to us. AWESOME customer service.

Ten of my family members and I spent a weekend in May 2011 at Wilderness on the Lake in a 3-bedroom lake condo with loft. When we walked into the condo, I was a bit concerned that I hadn't done enough research and the condo would be too small for 10 of us. Turned out we all fit perfectly and comfortably! Phew.

It was a beautiful weekend, and we spent much of it relaxing by the fireplace on our all-season lanai overlooking Lake Delton. Everyone's beds were comfortable, and though having only 2 bathrooms was slightly challenging in the mornings, we were fine. Absolutely loved having the full kitchen; it was great to be able to cook dinner and make breakfast and still be able to interact with everyone.

We had a lot of stuff to haul up to the condo upon arrival, and even more stuff to haul out on checkout day, and the bellhop carts were readily available when we needed them. The wait for the elevator was a little long while everyone was checking out on Sunday, but that was to be expected.

I've stayed at other hotels in the Dells, and had a not-so-great experience at one, but I'll definitely return the Wilderness on the Lake. This was a really good value for a large group of people.
