How Does a Cozy Winter Cabin Sound Right About Now?

January 01, 2022

Winter cabin rentals are all the rage right now in Wisconsin, and that goes double in Wisconsin Dells, where brilliant snowy scenery complements easy-going togetherness. Take your pick of a cozy winter cabin based on occasion, group size, specific vacation vibe, or activity.

Personalized Search: Winter Cabin Rentals Wisconsin

Rather than just list all the winter cabin rentals in Wisconsin Dells, we thought it much more helpful to divvy up that list into categories with samplings of “best of” picks. We kick it off with cozy winter cabin rental choices and wrap up with incredibly spacious snow cabin rentals.

Nature at Your Doorstep

There’s a peaceful feeling that envelopes you when you stay in a cabin tucked in the woods or within view of the Wisconsin River. Take a winter stroll, watch for eagles, then retreat to your cabin lodging to warm up by the fireplace. 

River’s Edge ResortThere are seven units here that overlook the Wisconsin River, each with a fieldstone fireplace and kitchen area. The larger units accommodate up to six people, while the small one-bedrooms are ideal for couples’ getaways. There are also freestanding log cabins, cottages, and full homes, each with its own distinctive rustic charm.

Cedar Lodge and Settlement: There are log cabins to comfortably sleep six or eight people. Every cabin has a complete kitchen, oversized whirlpool tub, and gas fireplace. Round up your friends to reserve multiple cabins in a row, all within walking distance of the Wisconsin River. Photographers will love this setting.

Best for Celebrating Special Milestones

Do you have a big anniversary coming up? Perhaps a milestone birthday? A job promotion, graduation, or engagement? Then celebrate in style in Wisconsin Dells.

Sand County Vacation Rentals: There are so many offerings from Sand County Vacation Rentals that would serve as a wonderful spot for a special occasion. Choose from cottages, lodges, log cabins, vacation homes, and classic A-frames. There’s even a cottage designed by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright. If you’ll be celebrating with a larger group, consider the Bluff View or Tannenbaum Log Haus – each sleeps 12. For a most momentous occasion the Whitetail Ridge property is stunning and has room for 18 guests. 

A Place to Unplug and Unwind

Cozy up with a blanket and good book, go snowshoeing at Mirror Lake State Park, heck, take a nap if you like. This is your time to relax and recharge after a busy holiday season when you stay at a cozy winter cabin. 

Island Pointe Resort: The cabin rentals here have all the luxuries of home. Nestled on 15 acres of towering pines on Lake Delton, you’ll feel far from the real world. The Little Red Cabins, built more than a half century ago and accommodating groups of four or six, have been lovingly restored with cedar plank interiors and wood-burning fireplaces. Some have complete kitchens. The Large Cabins have “up north” style as well and sleep up to eight.

Lots to Do Nearby

Here’s a “best of both worlds” choice – stay in a freestanding cabin at a waterpark resort complex and take advantage of multiple indoor waterparks, indoor attractions, and lots of on-site dining options too. 

Wilderness Resort Cabins: The cabin choices are many, just like the amenities, when you choose the Wilderness Resort for your winter getaway. There are cabins that sleep 10, others that sleep 20. These freestanding units are richly appointed with full kitchens, family rooms, and fireplaces. The largest even have home theater rooms. These can be home base while you explore the waterparks, with waterpark access included with your stay for all registered guests. 


Here’s a terrific option for anyone looking for places to rent a cabin this winter that welcome pups. You can both frolic in the snow and then warm up at the outdoor firepit.

Spring Brook Vacation Home Resort: Lodges, chalets, cottages – you choose the layout that best suits your traveling group that includes Fido. The Northwoods Chalet, with room for six, has a distinctive A-frame architecture with vaulted knotty pine ceilings. Or choose Pepper’s Place, large enough for eight, with the main bedroom featuring a private bath with whirlpool tub. Bearclaw Cabin is especially roomy, with enough beds to sleep 14, a second-floor loft area, and a finished lower level with game room decked out with pool table and foosball. Guests of Spring Brook can take advantage of the indoor pools, fitness room, and beautiful walking paths.    

Great Choice for Larger Families

These winter cabins in Wisconsin have such a wonderful family-friendly feel that you’ll want to make that reservation for more than just a weekend.

Lake Delton Waterfront Villas: The sunsets alone make these log villas a definite yes for family gatherings. The cottages sleep up to 12 with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, and living room with fireplace. The chalet accommodates 18 with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and the waterfront retreat sleeps 20 plus it has a washer/dryer. Guests staying at these villas also receive complimentary admission to the waterparks at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions.
