I would give this place 3.5 stars. It's a nice resort, has activities during the week days, on the quieter side for the Dells, and the suites are VERY nice. But the staff is not very friendly. We checked in later in the evening, and the two woman at the front desk were not pleasant at all. Then, the next day we rented a movie from the front desk, and that woman must have not known what customer service was either.
I would definitely stay here again, I just wouldn't expect friendly service.

We stayed at Tamarack from 04/07-04/10 using a Groupon for $259 in a 2 bedroom unit. With taxes, it averaged out to less than $90 a night. You can't beat that.
That said, I was not expecting a whole lot. It is located right off of 90/94 and is about a half mile from a Walmart. The welcoming center was clean and nice and my daughter was enthusiastic to find that it had video games. The condo units look dated from the outside. It looks like they had recent renovations on the inside about 10 years ago.
My unit had a queen bed, fireplace, small flat screen TV, dresser, end table, DVD/VCR, and ceiling fan with an attached master bathroom. The master bedroom and bathroom were quite large and had a whirlpool. The second room had 2 double beds, ceiling fan, small flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, dresser, end table, and small closet. The living room has a 27ish inch TV with DVD/VCR, a sofa and love seat, coffee table, end table, lamp, sliding glass door to patio that has a grill, and some nice décor. There was a glass kitchen table, a 2nd bathroom with a shower, electric range, and a kitchen with dishwasher and full size fridge. The kitchen was decently stocked having pizza pan, casserole dish, knives, silverware, plates, cups, glasses, toaster, coffee maker, cutting board, and just about everything you would need. It even had dish soap and dishwasher soap. Everything was liveable and comfortable. We had two chief complaints. The first complaint was that the whirlpool did not have its jets cleaned properly and spewed out some mold. Gross, but have experience that quite a few times in places from the Westin to Budget Inns. I didn't even know my room had one so I was not to upset. The second complaint was that there were lady bugs and stink bugs in the on the windows. There were not a lot of them, maybe 15, but they were there and my wife and I dispatched them quickly. I don't consider that horrible, but there are others more demanding than myself that may find that a big problem.
On site, it has a coin laundry, linen exchange, and entertainment complex. The entertainment complex was nice. The pool was clean and nice, although it was not deep. The hot tub was filled with annoying teenagers. There was not enough deck chairs to go around, but it was still nice. There was also a kiddie pool that was less than a foot deep. The locker rooms were very nice, but a little cold. The racquet ball court was nice and they had racquets and balls and eye protection there. There was a kids room with a slide so it was nice for my toddler daughter. It had some books and games there. The tennis courts were nice, but were in use the entire time there. The half basketball court cannot be used when a tennis game is going. There was another set up video games here as well. The towel exchange was good. They also had recent DVDs to rent for $1.66 a night and my daughter go to watch Frozen for the first time.
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to come back. There is a lot of living space in the units, they are well-stocked and clean if you don't use the tub, and they actually help reduce the cost of your vacation by saving from eating out from all of the overpriced restaurants in the Dells. We stayed the last day in the Wilderness in order to add a water park experience. Needless to say, I kind of missed the space and lack of noise that there was at Tamarack when the water park fun was done. When you consider we paid two-thirds the price for one day at Wilderness than we paid for three nights at Wilderness, Tamarack turned out to be a great deal. PS, there were no bed bugs in our unit.

This was our second time returning to tamarak and my family enjoys all of the activites it has to offer . The lobby is beautiful with a large pool and kitty pool that my 2yr old loved .. There was a decent fitness area and a huge gym along with a play area for younger kids with books,toys,tv and more !
However, this will be our last time staying here. About a week after returning home i got bit with a bed bug .. Comes to find out i brought it back from the resort ... Sooo disgusted i spet 1,200$ on bed bug exterminator what a joke ! Ive never had bed bugs or even seen one a day in my life before staying here . Also the units themselves have many problems that need to be fixed .. The water from the shower leaked threw the wall to rhe kitchen and the water was never hot . Dont stay here !

Winter in WI can be cold--and that it is this December. -4 this morning. Brrr. However, our townhouse unit and the activities center give a warm place to enjoy the beauty of Wisconsin and the Dells area in the off season when we are not out exploring.
Our drive here from NE Iowa brought us through scenic SW WI past the Frank Lloyd Wright house and The House on the Rock--easy hour or so day trip away. We were very pleased with our accommodations. 2 BR (one has twin beds, one w/king bed--it's a townhouse they are upstairs), 2 bath, w/d, gas FP, and as an end unit in the building we have windows on 3 sides (nice). Unit Is in good repair, though carpets are worn, and it is nicely furnished and supplied with most kitchen necessities.
Activity center is warm and welcoming. Not as expansive or as deluxe as I have seen, but with a friendly and welcoming attendant, indoor racquet ball court, fitness room, indoor tennis and basketball hoop, pool, locker room, towels, hot tub, rec room, wi-fi, computers, it more than meets our needs.
In the week between Christmas and New Year, we are having a restful, relaxing and quiet (though COLD this week) trip away. I'd come back!

My family and I ended up staying here with a Groupon deal. We had the 3 nights in a one bedroom for $219 bargain. The place is well worth the bottom-dollar discount. My one sentence summary of the property: average Wisconsin Dells accommodations off the main strip, with a good service staff but dated units.
They also offer discounted tickets to Kalahari and local restaurants- a nice perk. This location is one exit north of the main Wisconsin Dells strip. I personally don't care much for the kitschy Wis Dells vibe, and all the tourist trap stuff turns me off. My kids, however, love water parks and everything Wisconsin Dells has to offer. This place was a nice middle ground for us. The staff at the front desk are so friendly- it's really pleasant to experience that Wisconsin hospitality. The proof they were genuinely nice? They remembered my kids the next day when we stopped in to buy discounted water park tickets. Condo unit was OK.
We had a fully furnished kitchen/one bedroom unit. The bedroom was decent, the sofa sleeper in the living room needs to be replaced. It was flat as a pancake and you could feel every wire in the mattress. The overall furnishings were pretty basic, but they served our purposes as a family with young kids just fine.
The property is pretty cool- there's a lakefront, playground, indoor and outdoor pools, and a workout room. Overall? I'd definitely recommend for anyone with a family if you want to get away from the Water Park scene at night. The condos are clean, well maintained, and comfortable, if a bit dated. I would certainly come and stay here again next time I am in the Dells

Home away from home!
We had planned a trip to the Dells but did NOT want to join the masses in town, so we stayed here and we were grateful that we did. From the grounds to the two-bedroom townhouse we were in, clean clean clean - not a thing out of place. Full kitchen/dining room and a full bath w/jacuzzi tub adjacent to the master bedroom upstairs. Second bedroom had two twin beds w/tv/dvd player w/large closet. Two fireplaces; one in living room and the other in the master bedroom. Tamarack is located in Lake Delton which is approximately 10 minutes from the strip and 5 minutes from Walmart Supercenter. Living in Chicago, it was a welcoming thing to hear the nature around us during the day or on the private patio at night. The price was perfect and NOT sharing our vacation with the masses at a hotel in town was simply divine! The outdoor pool area was well manicured & clean. Customer service was good and accommodating. Wifi was not so great but what the heck. We recommend this highly. Our unit had NO BEDBUGS.
