First time in Wisconsin. We had a great time. Loved the place we stayed. It was HUGE!! Whole family seemed to have a great time.
Left home a little after 11am courtesy of a so called "limo service".... AKA a Buick, that because it's black, some how resembles a limo. Although, semantics aside, for a being a limo service the baggage handling left a little something to be desired, but the price was right. Thanks Rick and ...
... until 1851, when the La Crosse and Milwaukee Railroad was chartered, with Kilbourn as its president. The railroad made plans to bridge the Wisconsin River near the river's dells, and a boomtown named Newport sprang up at the expected site of the bridge in 1853. The population of this new city quickly swelled to over 2,000, but when the railroad finally ...
... motel was rated #4 in the Country on Trip Advisor for being great spot/value and it was. I commented on the card how great it was to see them hanging blankets and comforters out on a line-the owner said that's the way his mother did it and so they do it that way! It always creeps me out wondering how often motels launder the blankets and comforters. ...
... Wisconsin Dells and decided to make that the stop for the night.
On the way there, we still saw beautiful, big farms, but now we also were seeing dairy farms and cranberry bogs. Also very interesting is the fact that many of the fields have wind turbines in them. Crops grow right up to the base of the turbine and cows roam around them and don't seem to be bothered by them at all. Great way for the farmers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Glacier Canyon Lodge Wisconsin Dells
We spent five days in a three bedroom premium unit at Glacier Canyon lodge in early January. We found the room to be extremely nice. The furniture was extremely comfortable and the plasma tv was fantastic. We really like having a full kitchen because we prefer to eat in as a family for some nights rather than eating out all the time. There were a few things I would change about the room however. The fireplace is not a real fireplace. It is a simulated fireplace that has fake electric flames produced by lightbulbs and a little space heater on the top to give the illusion that it is heating the room. I do not understand why the did not just put in a gas log fireplace. It would really be a great addition. They also only put one pot and one pan in the kitchen. When you are trying to cook a meal for eight people, one small pot and a small pan are not enough. I am giving it four stars because it appears that they were on the right track, but stopped just short.
Mi esposo, sus padres y yo nos quedamos en el Glacier Canyon Lodge por un fin de semana. Es un lugar bellísimo. Tenemos ganas de volver en unos meses. Todo era perfecto y accesible. Las habitaciones eran perfectas, con una chimenea, un televisor de pantalla plana, lavaplatos, estufa. Un lugar impresionante. ¿A quién no le gustaría quedarse aquí?
Will be back soon!!
My husband and I took his parents out for a weekend. We stayed at the Glacier Canyon Lodge. What a beautiful place. We can't wait to come back., in a few months. Everything was so nice and handy. The rooms were perfect with the fireplace, and flat screen TV, dishwasher, stove/oven. What an awesome place. Who would't like it here.
Two families stayed next door to each other and had a 2-bdrm and a 3-bdrm. Our rooms/condos were great at a great price with everything you'd ever want. We requested units on the 2nd floor (skywalk level) as close to the skywalk as possible to limit the walking. This turned out to be a good move on our part because we had the first two units and didn't hear any noise from the hall. This was our first stay at the Wilderness complex and we we totally amazed at the friendly staff and good repair of everything (every game worked in the arcade!). The water parks were awesome and safe so we let our 8-17 yr olds run free. We can't wait to go back because we only stayed one night. Note call direct and check the rates they have so many new units coming on line I believe you can get a unit in Glacier Canyon for a great deal and less than the other Wilderness condos.
We have stayed at Wilderness properties lots of times during the last few years but this new hotel is by far the best so far. It was spotlessly clean. The granite countertops and sinks give the room a rich look. Check-In time wasn't until 3pm but we were allowed into our room at noon. Check-in was quick and efficent. Our room had plenty of linens including extra pillows. Even though it was the busy Thanksgiving weekend, our room was extremely quiet--we heard nothing at night after we went to bed. We were greeted each am with a newspaper. Staff was friendly and quick to each request. Kids had a great time riding horses at the stable across the parking lot and also at the new Tanger Outlet Mall located 5 minutes away. KFC and Dominos both delivered within 20 minutes of our order. The only downside was lots of walking in getting to the indoor waterpark but the heated skywalk made this more pleasant. And...bring a coffee cup as the cups they provide in the room aren't for hot beverages. I would go for a room not on the 2nd floor as this is the main walkway of the hotel and can get noisy. Otherwise, check it out. You will be glad you did.
Great stay at Glacier Canyon Lodge!!!!
We just got back from staying at the new Glacier Canyon Lodge located on the Wilderness property. The condo had a full kitchen, flat panel TVs, and access to all the indoor water parks located at the Wilderness. We will stay here again
My family of 3 (2 adults and 5 year old) stayed at Glacier Canyon Lodge September 12 - 14, 2006. The standard fall rate for the Double Queen Premium was $89, but we upgraded to the One Bedroom Premium for $130 per night. We were glad we upgraded - the One Bedroom condo was amazing. It had a full kitchen, one bedroom with king bed, 1.5 bathrooms, 2 tvs including a flat screen above the fireplace in the living room, dining area and breakfast bar, and a murphy bed in the living room (a bed that folds down from the wall).
In August 2006, we took our family to the new Glacier Canyon Lodge which is connected to the Wilderness Resort. We absolutely loved the accommodations. We stayed in the 3 bedroom condo which was very spacious and had that nice, new feeling to it. The room was gorgeous with a full kitchen that was stocked with everything we could ever need. The rooms and bathrooms were beautiful! Slate floors and flat screen tv's!!! The hotel was very quite and we did not experience the noise that was talked about in other reviews. The room was cleaned very well and we did not have any problems with the maid staff. The elevators were nice and large and were easily able to accommodate our family and all of our luggage.
We have been visiting the Wildneress for the past 7 years and have stayed almost at every property. So when a new one opened up we thought we would try it! Huge disappointment! These condos have paper thin walls!!! All night we heard water running, toilets flushing, people talking and music playing. Not very clean - bunk beds had someone else's hair clip under the cover making me think these sheets were not cleaned. Food on the floor in all corners of the condo. The shower would back up every time it was used.
Just came back from the Glacier Canyon Lodge at the Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells. We had a double queen suite on the 4th floor overlooking the Lost World outdoor waterpark. The view was great. Check in was at 4:00 p.m. but we were able to get our room at 2:30 p.m. The decor in the room was really nice. Towels fluffy (not typical hotel room towels) and the beds very comfy. There are elevators. The hallways in the building were extra wide - wider than the Wilderness. The place is constantly being cleaned - I saw lots of cleaning staff in the hallways, pool areas, etc. I agree with another post that the food is outrageously expensive at the Wilderness (think Disney World prices) and not worth the money. The clientele at this hotel was really nice - nobody really running up and down the halls yelling (ok - maybe my own kids but they were reprimanded!) The walk to the waterparks at the Wilderness was a hike - BUT really not bad at all if you took the outside footbridge. I recommend this walk as you walk over a little creek and the view of the creek is nice. Chlorine smell in the indoor waterparks is pretty strong. Wild Waterdome wasn't bad but it is new so the ventilation is good. Lots of construction going on here but it did not affect us at all, couldn't even hear it. Pools closed too early. I would have expected them to stay open later.
