Why we choose #WI #Cabins and Cottages for a Vacation over Hotels. A Biased View :)

We truly believe that Wisconsin Cabin Rentals offer some of the best memories ever made. Kids seem to enjoy the lakes and wide-open spaces and parents love giving the freedom to them while also experiencing a peaceful setting amongst nature. There is nothing like sitting outside for dinner on a picnic table with great food and a view of the lake or flowing river. Being able to roast marshmallows over the fire and catch fireflies under the stars are moments that last forever. We have compiled a list of reasons why we love renting cabins, cottages, lodges and homes.

  1. Hotels seem to force families or friends in separate living quarters, interrupting quality time and laughs created by spur of the moments that arise.
  2. Hotels have increasingly limited the number of guests in each room, only allowing 4-5 in a room, making you rent out several rooms, which can get expensive.
  3. Pets are part of the family and vacationers want them to come on vacation. Many cabins and cottages are accommodating towards your pets.
  4. Parking can be cumbersome when renting a hotel. Whether you park on the other side or 4 floors down, no one wants to mess with that.
  5. Don’t be suckered into going out to eat for all your meals. That can be costly. It can also mean taking time out of your day to make sure the family is presentable for dinner establishments and let’s face it, kids are always messy.
  6. It’s pretty hard to star gaze through a hotel window. With wide-open spaces and a yard to lay a blanket down, you can’t beat the star-gazing at a cabin.
  7. There’s no quiet hours. We’re not saying let’s get crazy but no one wants to have to whisper to their family down a hallway to get ice when they can talk normally on their way to the kitchen.
  8. Amenities in a cabin and a cottage can sometimes be pricey in a hotel. Take for instance fireplaces, boat rentals, Jacuzzis, full size kitchens, screen porches. Some cabins can be more rustic if back to nature suits you.
  9. When you return the next year, the hosts actually can remember you and your preferences.
  10. Cabins and Cottages are KID FRIENDLY. They let the kids run around, squeal with delight, chase after the dog, fish off the dock, swim at the beach, climb a tree and tell ghost stories around the fire.

Thinking About a #Northern #Wisconsin Getaway This Summer?

When you think UP NORTH, think Wisconsin. Wisconsin may be known for the beer and cheese but that isn’t all it’s famous for. The people are welcoming, the fish are biting, the sweet-smelling pines are whistling, and the wildlife peeking out from their burrows. Northern Wisconsin offers anything a person can ask for.

For the outdoor adventurer, there is nothing short of things to do in Wisconsin. The Cable area has been nationally ranked by CNN and the American Hiking Society as owning some of the best hiking trails in the nation. This could be because of the uninterrupted landscape of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. In some areas you can even see Lake Superior. These trails are also traveled by mountain bikers.

If the sound of waves and running water can instantly calm you, you’re in for a treat. Wisconsin boasts over 14,000 lakes and northern Wisconsin has some of the best beaches. Visit Lake Superior and you will never need to leave the state again for a vacation. You can go boating, fishing, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming, frolicking or really just about anything you want to do in the water, you can do it here.

Eagle River cabins (city is named appropriately due to the popular sightings of eagles), offers a great family vacation spot for summer months in the upper Midwest. Here they named it the “snowmobiling capital of the world” for its annual snowmobiling derby. This is widely popular here because of the well groomed miles of trails. A 4-season paradise.

Winter in Wisconsin will never be unmatched. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, and skiing are all wonderful activities to do. You don’t know winter until you’ve been there. Ice shanties scattered among the lakes, families enjoying their catch at the dinner table and follow up with roasting marshmallows around a fire.

Searching for a Wisconsin Vacation Rental?

Image

We believe your family vacation should start with the online Search. We’ve made it fun and easy. You’re on cabin time now!

1. One website that is entirely focused on Wisconsin cabins, cottages, lodges and homes.

2. A website that offers a large selection.

3. A website where you can CONNECT and BOOK directly with the owners. These days, it’s hard to find. Have you noticed that most vacation rental websites now make your book through their site? Third-party websites take a commission on every booking. That means you’d likely pay more for the same rental because rental owners raise their rates. Not at RentWisconsinCabins.com: You always book directly with the owners and Save – Besides, the owners are your best tour guides, not booking websites.

4. Finally, you need a website that offers easy Search Tools that narrow your search.

When it’s vacation time, it’s time to visit RentWisconsinCabins.com.

Light at the End of the Tunnel – Sparta WI

Here’s one bike trail that even non-bikers will love. Throughout the biking trail near Sparta Wisconsin, there are three man-made tunnels. Bikers jump off their bike, turn on their flashlight, and walk through the 3/4 mile long tunnel. Once you reach the center of the walk, take a minute to turn off your flashlight and observe the blackness. Keep walking and soon you’ll see a small dot of light. So the saying “the light at the end of the tunnel,” well that’s exactly how it feels.

My family and I were in the area, kayaking, and thought we would go check it out. So without our bikes, we took a walk along the path and one of the tunnels. It’s an experience that everyone should see, at least once. While you’re updating your bucket-list and planning your vacation – remember us. Let’s explore Wisconsin!
