Your Own Lake House: 5 Cabins on Wisconsin Waters

Have you ever wished you had your very own Wisconsin lake house? Luckily, you can feel like you do with these Wisconsin cabins and cottages on the water!

There are plenty of cozy resorts and privately owned rental cabins that offer private shoreline, serene sunset views and plenty to do like swimming, fishing, boating and beyond. Read on to discover your own little slice of Wisconsin’s beautiful lakes to enjoy with your favorite people this summer.

Thunderbird Log Home – Hatfield

Though this village offers camping and a lodge, the authentic Thunderbird Log Home makes for the ideal Northwoods stay. This spacious 5-bedroom log cabin is the perfect mixture of classic charm and new amenities and sleeps up to 14 people, making it perfect for a family or friends' retreat.

While you can still enjoy the comforts of home with a large-screen TV and fully equipped kitchen, you’ll also be one with nature as you kayak or fish on beautiful Lake Arbutus and hike (or bike) on the numerous trails surrounding the area.

End the night around a crackling campfire amidst the trees bordering the Black River State Natural Area and embrace an unforgettable Northwoods getaway with your favorite people.

Crown Point Resort – Stoughton

You don’t have to travel to the Northwoods to enjoy a lake view—there’s everything you need at Crown Point Resort in Stoughton. Six cedar cottages nestled on a hillside offer an inviting atmosphere overlooking the serene Lake Kegonsa, just minutes from Wisconsin's capital city.

Charming downtown Stoughton and nearby attractions like Lake Kegonsa State Park and Eugster’s Farm Market and Petting Farm will keep your whole group entertained, while cabin views of the shimmering lake offer much-needed vacation relaxation.

DePerry’s on the Lake – Bayfield

Lake Superior has never looked better than from the deck of a Wisconsin cabin like DePerry’s on the Lake. With a breathtaking view of the water and the nearby Basswood Island, this is one of the best ways to experience northwestern Wisconsin with your favorite people.

Of course, you will enjoy the modern accommodations, sprawling yard and beach, but mostly you will enjoy the peace and seclusion that DePerry’s has to offer. The two suites each have a private deck with an incredible view.

If you’re up to journey beyond your little oasis, visit the nearby world-renowned music venue Big Top Chautauqaua, or take a trip to experience the natural wonders of the Apostle Islands.

A-Frame on the Bay – Sturgeon Bay

This stunning A-Frame on the Bay sits atop the limestone cliffs of the Niagra Escarpment overlooking sparkling Green Bay. Stay with your special someone and enjoy the waterfront views, take out the boats and bikes provided and create lasting memories that will stay with you for years to come.

Take the short drive to Potawatomi State Park and downtown Sturgeon Bay to explore more fun in the form of scenic hiking trails, tasty restaurants, unique shops and much more. There’s so much to enjoy in Door County and having this special spot as a home base will guarantee your trip is one to remember.

Serenity Bay Resort – St. Germain

Staying in a cabin at Serenity Bay Resort gives you and your crew access to 600 feet of shoreline on Little St. Germain Lake, stand-up paddle boards and kayaks and a private deck perfect for lounging. Bring the family along to enjoy the playground near the water and explore the area around the resort for go-cart racing, ice cream shops, water ski shows and everything that makes for a quintessential “Up North” Wisconsin summer.
