Editor’s Review of Baker’s Sunset Bay

In an area known for vintage motels and modern mega-resorts jockeying for big wows with themes and thrill rides, Baker's Sunset Bay offers a rarity: a resort on a real beach where you can dig toes into the sand and splash into Lake Delton.

On summer days, families gather around the outdoor pool with its beach and lake view or paddle onto Lake Delton in kayaks and rowboats. Some cook out on resort grills and picnic tables or have an easy meal on the balconies and patios before gravitating to the campfire pit at night. Campfire Kevin, who has led singing on select evenings for 20 years, gets kids and parents to chime in as he strums the guitar, the flames crackle and marshmallows roast.

Sunset Bay has been bordering the
... more lake for close to half a century. Barry and Jo Baker bought it in 1980, and their daughter, Dawn, is now at the helm and continuing the family's mission to keep the resort fresh. Improvements include condo units, added in 2011 and ideal for larger families (they sleep up to 12 when two are adjoined) and an indoor pool that's now a saline system, requiring fewer chemicals.

The resort includes five buildings with a total of 82 units, 21 of which are available year-round and take advantage of lake views that change with each season. Summer clearly rules as the favorite time to visit, but spring guests can get a jump on scenic area hikes, fishing and paddling, while fall visitors can soak up colors and head to the indoor pool during chilly days. Morning mist lifts off the lake as weather cools and winter eventually arrives.

Guests can take advantage of weatherproof fun with Kalahari indoor amusement park passes that are included with each stay. The Kalahari park blends the thrill of a ropes course, go-karts and laser tag with the bling of an arcade (for additional fees). less
