Christmas Mountain Village
Ranked #31 of 75 Hotels in Wisconsin Dells
Reviewed 18 March 2012

We have stayed at Christmas Mountain at least 6 times through our BlueGreen timeshare plan. You really feel like you've gone away to "the cabin" without the pain of taking care of it. If you think of buying into BlueGreen here are my tips: Buy as few points as possible, because 45 days in advance you can stay at any property for between $79 to $109 night depending on the size of the unit. We've found it best to use our points during the week when it's much less points/unit, and then paying cash for the weekend nights. So it's best to buy if you live within driving distance of one of their many places so you can enjoy short trips. Take a look at the book of locations and see the number of points per weeknight and weekend and then make your buying decision for the number of points you like. Oh, and also never accept their first offer, you can expect to get at least 25% less or more if you counter-offer. Enjoy!

Room Tip: The "cottages" are very old, but the cabins, villas, timbers and townhouses are beautiful.

We stayed in a three bedroom - had both a two bedroom, 2 bath side and 1 bedroom 1 bath side. Mid-range for furnishings and kitchen amenities. The bedrooms had no room darkening shades so you get up with the sunrise. One major complaint - no shuttle service to the rooms from the main lodge. After a ride back to the resort from the local casino, I was told by the front desk that I would need to walk to my room - no problem, they said it was about six blocks. That wouldn't have been so bad, but it was dark and cold (8pm at night about 20 degrees) and the little map they provided was inaccurate. After wandering around for over half an hour, I finally find our room. I called them several times during my search for my room and they never offered to help me. There were no street signs or lights and many little hills and cul de sacs - not easy at all to find a room at night. Poor customer service.

We stayed in a 2 bed room log cabin. It’s cute from the outside but is small and really needs to be updated. It has a fireplace. We stayed in the summer so we did not use it. But it would be nice to have if we stayed in the winter. They have a few pools to use. They were lots of kids and it is a kid friendly place.

We stayed at Christmas Mountain in January of 2011 and attended a time share session to get free lift tickets. We decided to buy into the Bluegreen Sampler Package and used some of our points for our stay January 2012. We stayed in a 3 Bedroom Townhome for 5 nights. The townhome was very nice. Bluegreen is in the process of updating all of the units, but not at a very rapid pace. Only one of each unit type has been updated and those are used for tours for the timeshare. Our unit was cozy and roomy. The 3 bedroom is made up of the 1 bedroom side and the 2 bedroom side so there were 2 kitchens, 2 washer/dryers, 2 fireplaces, 2 entrances, 3 patios, 2 living rooms, 3 bathrooms - lots and lots of space.

We had family come up and join us. We were in unit 867 which is located up on top of a very steep hill. I was lucky our unit didn't have many stairs to climb as I have a bad knee and stairs are difficult for me. Some of the units had 25+ steps to climb up to get to the unit - luggage can be a workout! The view was beautiul! We had several days of snow, and getting up and down the hill by car was challenging. We were confined to our unit for almost an entire day due to the inability of cars to pass safely up and down. We watched many people park at the bottom of the hill and walk up to their unit. We enjoyed the day playing board games it was a blessing in disguise. With a unit that sleeps 10 and only parks 2 cars, parking was an issue. If we had more than 2 cars we had to overflow park at the main building which was not close. Also, daily garbage pickup would be nice. Garbage needed to be taken to the dumpster which also was not close.

There is a restaurant (Mulligans) and a snack shop on site, and several great restaruants in town as well. We went to Wal-Mart (5 minute drive) and stocked up on all the food we needed and made most of our meals in our unit. The unit has everything needed to make just about any meal!

Christmas Mountain VIllage is a beautiful property and we love staying there all seasons. I agree with other postings that the property is in need of updates, but as I overheard someone say, think of the outdatedness as rustic. There are just a few things that were bothersome. Lift tickets were pricy especially for staying 6 days. We received a discount on lift tickets because we were owners, but it still added up. Mt. Olympus Resort also in the Dells offers free lift tickets at Christmas Mountain to their guests along with the use of their indoor water and theme parks, but Christmas Mountain offers no recipricating offer. I found it offensive that guests of another resort were able to use the amminties at my resort for free while I had to pay. One night we booked a room at Mt. Olympus just for the lift tickets and use of the Mt.Olympus parks. Christmas Mountain does have a wonderful outdoor hot tub which is always fun in winter!

Ski and Snowboard Rentals were also very pricy. We came home and found skiis on ebay and purchased for next time, much cheaper. We had one pair of skiis we brought with us, but they would not rent only boots to us. Tubing was incredibly over priced. 16 dollars for 2 hours - and the lines were so long I think we got to go down 5 times in that time period. The hill was very busy on Saturday, but the only had one lift running. Not sure why, and the line for the single lift was also very very long.

Don't get me wrong, we had a wonderful trip, and will definately return. Hope the updates happen sooner than later.

Room Tip: Townhomes up on the hills have great views, but some have a lot of stairs to climb. Ask for a room...

We have visited the resort once a year for close to 20 years but as a family, this was our first winter visit. The biggest plus to staying at the resort is not getting caught up in all the commercialism of the Dells. You can go in and visit the sites for a couple hours but return to the tranquil resort where there is tremendous golfing in the summer. What we noticed on this visit was this - the accommodations are barely being kept up. I think this time we counted about 5 items worth noting to management...broken washing machine, broken out pain of glass on fireplace, a bathroom fan that could challenge the horn of a freight train, etc. Beyond our room, we found some big shortcuts too. On the resorts bunny hill was a contraption of some sort that was intended to be a tow rope. No child could use it to get up the hill (too difficult to hang onto) and we saw one adult get taken down by it. The gentleman, in his 20s and fit, thought he may have broke some ribs. Our two children learning to snowboard chose to have us carry them up the hill or walk up the hill themselves in place of using. As for the chalet, some major upgrades are needed to the press wood tables that saw their better day(s) several years ago. My husband and I commented upon leaving that we felt that the conditions at the resort also seemed to be drawing a different crowd. We aren't into social standings etc but when a majority of the skiiers etc were wearing street clothes to ski and tube, you felt like you might be a bad neighborhood. I think Christmas Mountain needs to work on their image a bit more and do some upgrades to a few of the areas that are way beyond general wear and tear.

Room Tip: The Timbers are the nicest for winter and summer. During the summer though, it is handy to choose a...
