There's something about winter that gives us an itch to escape with someone special. Curl up and get comfy in one of these snug Wisconsin cabins and cottages, complete with fireplaces and hot tubs ready to kill the chill of the season. Read on to find the perfect romantic winter destination that speaks to the two of you!

Walnut Ridge Log CabinPlatteville

Ever hot-tubbed and sat in front of a roaring fire at the same time? You’re in for a treat when you rent one of these two cabins, each with a two-person whirlpool just steps from a wood-burning fireplace. This welcoming atmosphere and simple charm will make you fall in love all over again.

Six acres of rural, private grounds north of Platteville make these rentals a perfectly quiet getaway for couples and small groups of friends.

The larger of the hand-crafted cabins, a historic 1800s log and stone structure, also has a sunroom. But choose the smaller cabin if you want breakfast delivered right to your door!

A Secret Cottage Oxford

You and your special someone can gaze out over your own private lake from the loft-level whirlpool in this delightfully secluded cottage on its own acreage. Bask in solitude away from the busy world.

The wood-burning stove in the living room below will drift through the open space to keep you warm in the upstairs bedroom, which includes a skylight for stargazing from bed!

You can have the perfect date without even setting foot out the door!

Sand County Vacation Rentals - Wisconsin Dells

Woodside Cottages Bayfield

Heading up north to see the Apostle Islands ice caves this winter? For the quintessential cabin experience, try one of these cozy, reasonably-priced cottages just a mile outside of Bayfield.

All of the rentals were built since 2000, and units three, four and five have gas fireplaces and Jacuzzis for two.

Is fat biking or snowshoeing the thing you like to do as a couple? The Brownstone Trail winds along Lake Superior to offer a 1.5 mile trek to the town of Bayfield. Frozen Lake Superior is a magical sight.

Coulee Junction Caboose De Soto

Looking for something a little different for this year's anniversary getaway? How about a 1954 caboose renovated into a two-bedroom cottage!

The fireplace and cupola seating area are the highlights inside, while the deck leads to a gazebo with a huge hot tub, all overlooking five acres.

Add a cave adventure to your stay or go ice climbing on one of the nearby waterfalls.
