Staying in a cabin is a great way for your family to experience Wisconsin’s natural beauty. But finding a place that welcomes dogs, not just allows them, can be tough. For a reasonable price, you want space for your dog to play without major restrictions. These five cabins fit the bill, prioritizing pups and their families.
Most of the cabin owners on this list are dog-owners themselves and love to host other friendly canines. Remember to pick up after your pet, and pack your dog’s crate and leash!
