Wisconsin Vacation Rentals

Travel to Wisconsin / Wisconsin Vacation Rentals

The Great Lakes, forests, small towns, microbrews, cheese, and a football team that isn’t owned individually…put these together, and you get Wisconsin. Your Wisconsin vacation rental might be quietly charming, or in the middle of all the action, but a great experience either way. The best part is the choice is yours! 

Wisconsin Breweries and Cheese Factories

Agri-tourism is a newer term for an old concept in Wisconsin – touring the multitude of breweries and cheese factories in Wisconsin. Wisconsin has gained fame in brewing with the names of Miller and Leinenkugel, but microbreweries are quite strong all over the state, exposing new and unique tastes. Wisconsin is the largest cheese producer in the United States, and is home to many family-run businesses that produce cheese of first-rate quality. Tours of the breweries and cheese factories give an inside look to the process of creation, and you might even get to tempt your palate with sampling!

Wisconsin Vacation Spots

Northern Wisconsin touches two of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, and the terrain of the Northwoods is that of pine forests. Superior has a deep-water harbor with great fishing and a sandbar known for excellent birdwatching. Bayfield is another port town off of Lake Superior with Victorian mansions, sailing, and charter fishing. The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore consists of 22 islands with attractions such as lighthouses, and sea caves. The beautiful Cable area sports its scenery through all four seasons, and is co-host with Hayward of the world-famous American Birkebeiner cross-country skiing event. Lac du Flambeau benefits from the Ojibwe (also known as Chippewa) culture. Eagle River is on a 28-freshwater lake chain teeming with fish, and exhibits a small town feel in its Main Street section with its candy shops and ice cream parlors. Lakewood has a strong lumberjack heritage and displays it at the restored Holt & Balcom Logging Camp. Wisconsin vacation rentals are commonly booked by outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers -- is it really a wonder why?

Central Wisconsin throws together small communities and busy centers of industry, all with a charming feel. Chippewa Falls’s downtown area presents architecture of interest and the family-owned Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, run since 1867. Menomonie is an antiques haven, and gaming and ATV riding is popular in the Black River Falls area. Wisconsin Rapids holds history relating to the paper and cranberry industries; tours are available at the Stora Enso North America complex and Glacial Lake Cranberries. The Mitchell Public Square-Main Street Historic District is comprised of over 60 buildings in Stevens Point. For a smaller area, Oshkosh certainly has attractions more like a metropolitan area; first-rate museums, performing arts, boat cruises, and top-level dining. Fond du Lac is home to Lakeside Park, where a historic lighthouse and carousel sit. Green Bay is the oldest settlement of French fur traders, and home to the only community-owned NFL team, the beloved Green Bay Packers. Green Bay also has a number of museums, performing arts shows, and for those who enjoy rolling dice, gaming. If you're looking for a lakeside vacation, don't overlook Door County vacation rentals, which provide easy access to both Green Bay and Lake Michigan.

Southern Wisconsin’s flavor is more of larger cities and primary resort areas. Wisconsin Dells attracts millions of visitors each year to its family-oriented vacation destination; consequently, Wisconsin Dells vacation rentals are practically designed with families in mind! Its nature consists of seven miles of the Wisconsin River, Cambrian sandstone cliffs, and various tall rock formations. Wisconsin Dells has a reputation of “America’s Waterpark Capital” and has a wealth of recreational activities. Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, has a state capitol building that mirrors the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. The Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center celebrates a design by the local Frank Lloyd Wright. Madison has been recognized in the outdoor community for both excellent paddling and cycling. The metropolitan area of Milwaukee celebrates diverse ethnicity through several festivals, and really exhibits a welcoming spirit. Visit the Quadracci Pavilion and Burke Brise Soleil at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The downtown Riverwalk is a line of unique shops, art displays, intriguing nightlife, and top quality restaurants and brewpubs. From Southern Wisconsin vacation cottages to townhomes, you'll have lots to choose from, and find it very easy to call one your home away from home.
