Great Reasons to Choose Lake Wisconsin Vacation Rentals
Lake Wisconsin is in the southeast area of the state of Wisconsin, approximately 20 miles north of Madison. The area is known for its outstanding natural beauty with pine-covered mountain slopes reflected in the still lake waters. The lake has many small bays, coves and inlets which are perfect for exploring by boat or kayak and the bass fishing in the lake is renowned.
Lake Wisconsin is close to Devil’s Lake State Park with its many trails and wildlife attractions. Parfrey’s Glen State Natural Area is also home to many animals and birds including wild turkeys, pileated woodpecker, sandhill cranes, bald eagles and other wildlife. White-tailed deer, beaver and muskrat also call this beautiful area “home.”
There are many beautiful vacation homes in this desirable area so you are sure to find one that is ideal to suit your family’s needs. Many have forest or lakefront locations and some have their own pier and boat too. Fully equipped kitchens allow you to prepare the food you like, or dine out in one of the nearby communities. Nothing tastes better than freshly caught fish, blackened on the grill while watching the sunset across the lake!
Lake cottages are ideal for those with children as there is plenty of space for them to play games; they could also paddle at the edge of the lake. Some cabins include their own hot tub, log-burning fireplace, barbecue grill, bicycles or canoes. Surrounded by unspoiled scenery and the sounds of birds in the trees, Lake Wisconsin is the perfect place to enjoy a wonderful outdoor vacation at your own pace.
Things to Do at Lake Wisconsin Cabins
Lake Wisconsin offers a range of activities, depending upon the season. During the winter, it is an excellent center for snowsports including groomed snowmobile trails across the frozen bay, where ice fishing is the main activity. The nearby mountain areas of Cascade Mountain and Devil’s Lake offer downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing fun.
During the summer, there is plenty to do, both on and off the lake. Hire a boat, go fishing for bass and perch, enjoy swimming on the nearby sandy beach, rent jet skis or go kayaking and canoeing around the calm bays. The area has some beautiful scenery and is perfect for driving trips, hiking, mountain biking and nature-spotting in the wooded areas.
