“Relaxing and peaceful”
Reviewed 10 January 2010

As you can imagine, this resort was very quiet in the middle of winter. Our family enjoyed the fireplace and jacuzzi tub in the unit, and there was plenty of room for our four kids. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the pool was perfect for our kids--not too deep, and easy to get to from our unit.

We did not end up doing any of the waterparks, as we did not have any special discounts to make it somewhat affordable. So we settled for ice skating and sledding, of which there were abundant places to do the latter on the property.

It was a nice relaxing time for us though, and we're glad we went.

Stayed January 2010, travelled with family

I read some of the reviews before booking. Would I stay again? I would try it again. The condo was beautiful, yes did need some maintainance. Things that were wrong-- the shower downstairs didn't work, pictures missing off the walls, hair weaved in the covers (not just one cover but all of them) coffee maker screen was slit so we ended up with a pot of grounds. We pre-made most of our meal before coming, but should of made time to look in all the cabinets before, as we couldn't find a pan & had to use a pot to cook eggs.
Too cold for the outside activities. Wonderful indoor pool, outdated fitness room, we used the racquet ball room (had fun) Children's pool had a brown thing floating in it, so we stayed away. Extremely friendly staff, always willing to please you. Very large rooms with great views. Plenty of parking close to your Condo.

We stayed in a condo at the Tamarack Resort. We had two condos managed by the Sand County Service Company. The first thing we noticed upon entering the condo is that it had not been updated in YEARS! Dated decor, old kitchen cabinets, old appliances, old furniture, etc. Now we could have dealt w/ that IF the condos had been clean. They just had a dirty feel. The kitchen cabinets were sticky! The bed linens and bathroom towels were stained. Worst of all, their were ants everywhere! Ants were crawling all over the living room and dining room carpeted floors. There were ants in the kitchen! We weren't surprised because there are ants hills and colonies everywhere on the Tamarack Resort grounds. They were outside our front door and outside on the patio. We called Sand County and they said that they would send someone to spray the ants but they never did. So, these were the negatives on our stay.

With all that being said, the condos are large. The bedrooms and bathrooms are nice and big. There are grills for grilling out. Also, the outdoor and indoor pools were very nice. The outdoor pool had fun activites and games for the kids about every hour.

The location of the resort is great. It's right near Super Walmart and less than 5 min. from the Wisconsin Dells attractions.

We stayed here to come to a timeshare presentation at the Wilderness (owned by the same folks) and I love it! It's so serene...not noisy like most of the hotels and resorts at the Dells...kids were seen but not heard! Which was great for me as I teach everyday and needed a little getaway....I can't wait to go back to spend more time.

Reviewed 22 June 2006

We traveled June 18 - June 21, 2006. Our travel party consisted of four teenage boys (14-16), our 26 year old daughter, and us. We chose Tamarack Resort of the wisdells website. This was the most relaxing, satisfying, exciting experience we have ever had. The condo we had was a large two bedroom (unfortunately master bedroom was loft over living room, where boys stayed, so we changed rooms with our daughter), two full bathrooms, large kitchen, patio overlooking water, living room and dining room. Area is very quiet. This is one of the few places that doesn't have a water park, which worked for us because our boys are older. They do offer indoor and outdoor pool, racketball, basketball, tennis, fishing (poles included), bicycles, nature walks, peaceful waterfall area, paddleboats - ALL AT NO CHARGE!!!! Just give them your room number and they'll give you what you ask for!

Best part is you do not have to be an owner to rent a condo at this property. Rates more than reasonable. We would have paid twice as much if we had rented three hotel rooms, plus the added benefits of a kitchen. And Walmart is right around the corner from the property. The photos on the websites do not do this place justice. It is very modern and a huge complex.

Went to Mt. Olympus and then took the Jet Boat tour! Absolutely wonderful! We had a ball. We will definitely stay here again!!! Absolutely no complaints!
