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.

Searching for a Wisconsin Vacation Rental?

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.

Cabin Time. What is it?

 

 

Cabin Time. It’s in our slogan and our Tweets – it’s on our website and our Blogs. We make a reference to Cabin Time whenever we can. What exactly is it? Cabin Time is a shared vacation experience when time seemingly slows down. It begins when your group steps out of the car, stretches, and takes a deep breath upon arriving at a Wisconsin vacation cabin, cottage, lodge or home.

Cabin Time FEELS different. Your pace slows down, your attention to sights and sounds are heightened, food tastes better, conversations are genuine. It’s amazing who you become when Cabin Time kicks in: Relationships are strengthened as you reconnect with family & friends. Storytelling is rampant, and reflections on past experiences suddenly surface. My parents turned into teachers during Cabin Time – that’s when I learned to read a compass, start a 9.9hp evinrude motor, swim, and X-country Ski. My grandmother taught me to put my ear on a hot sun-soaked rock to cure an earache. It works.

RentWisconsinCabins.com is here to help you find a little Cabin Time. Stop by our website and book a vacation rental that is right for you!

3 Tips For Planning Your WI Vacation

  1. Research many different properties.Many cabins and cottages throughout WI are very different. Before committing to renting the property, made sure the cottage offers everything you are looking for. There are twotools to help you
    • MAP: Compare properties based on location
    • Narrow-Your-Search tool: Let us filter through your criteria and create a list of properties. From here you can contact the owners with further questions and/or reservations.
  2. Longer is not always better.It’s all about letting go of your extra stress and having time to relax and do whatever makes you happy. Instead of taking a 2 week-long vacation, break that up and take a few shorter vacations. Sometimes even those weekend getaways are all you need to get back in the swing of things.
  3. Don’t be scared off by price when renting a cabin, cottage, lodge, and home. A single bedroom vacation cabin rental will cost about as much as a hotel room, so from a financial point of view the two options are equal. However, when considering the other benefits of cabin rentals, the hotel room suddenly looses a lot of its attractiveness. Many attractions such as hiking and water recreation are nearby to your rental and at very in costs. Even more money can be saved by buying and cooking your food instead of going out for lunch and dinner. We also have a specials pdf which includes our members current specials which can be found on our official website. Happy saving!
