Mommy Mentions

    Don’t let summer pass you by – visit the Wilderness Resort for the ultimate in family fun! This year marks the third time that we have had the opportunity to visit the Wilderness Resort, and each time brings our family new memories. This time we told our friends in the military, who were back in Wisconsin on leave from overseas, about our plans and they decided to join us by booking a room of their own.

    My family loves going on getaways for the weekend. It’s our chance to regroup and recharge our batteries for whatever lies ahead. We were planning a weekend trip with my siblings and parents and wanted to go to the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells. I was very happy when they agreed to a review of their resort. Since my family and I had already booked the room, the Wilderness Resort was kind enough to give us a complimentary breakfast and 3 Wild Fun Passes (the baby can’t use one of course).
