The snow is falling, the fire is crackling. You’re cozied up in a warm log cabin, warm mug in hand, alone with your special someone in the midst of quiet woods. You have nowhere to be but right here.


This is winter in Wisconsin – the chance to escape the everyday, slow the pace of life and enjoy everything that makes the season so special, in a place where getting snowed in is… exactly what you want to happen.


Retreat to these Wisconsin cabins for a winter weekend made just for two.

Walnut Ridge Log Cabin – Platteville

Ever hot-tubbed in front of a cozy fire? It’s winter luxury that’s yours to experience when you rent one of these two cabins, each with a two-person whirlpool just steps from a wood-burning fireplace. The 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

Do you and your person like fat biking or snowshoeing together? 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 turned 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 of forest.
