Top 6 Wisconsin Events in 2018 …and the cabins nearby

Wisconsin rental cabins offer vacationers a great basecamp when it comes to local events. After a day of participating in one of these local events, your group will love the sunsets & privacy only found in a cabin, cottage, lodge or home. From the two of you to your extended family, we have romantic WI cabins and plenty of large group vacation rentals.

For this blog, we gathered a nice selection of WI vacation rentals closest to each event. Because we have hundreds, we could not list them all. But you’ll find town links too.

Dockside picnic? No need to go inside on such beautiful days

This area was once the hiding ground for  Dillinger Gang when he eluded the FBI in a hail of gunfire in a shootout. Hence why Johnny Depp’s movie Public Enemies filmed scenes from Little Bohemia nearby. There is also a water ski show, a casino, and a nature preserve nearby.

Just read what one guest had to say about this resort:

‘Hillcrest Resort is a great place to vacation. I love being on the river and yet centrally located on the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes so it is easy to get to all the lakes on the Chain. All the cabins are 2-bedroom, they are charming and all the cabins are close to the water. There are 2 places to swim and docks for every cabin as well as a rowboat included in the rental. The firepit is very nice, as well as the playground, the basketball hoop, the paddleboat, the canoe and the snowmobile trail is within 1/8 mile of the cabins and is great in the summertime for hiking and biking. Across the highway is Starr Beach with grills, picnic tables and a sandy walk-in beach. The resort is located within a mile of Little Bohemia Restaurant featured in the recent Johnny Depp film PUBLIC ENEMIES as well as other nice restaurants and a Trigs food store within 2 miles. All all-around fun cabin experience with lots of cabin amenities. I love the time that I have spent at Hillcrest Resort. Caroline Mitchell —5 star’
