Couples Love Our Luxury Wisconsin Cabin Rentals

One of the most scenic Wisconsin cabin rentals, nestled on a wooded piece of property outside Wausau

This year was a pretty mild winter in the Wausau area, but that means spring getaways have been even more enjoyable. Similarly, we’re looking forward to a fantastic summer and fall season filled with activities, romantic getaways, and new adventures. If new, upscale adventures are on your mind, consider booking a stay at Owl Ridge Cabin, one of the most luxurious Wisconsin cabin rentals

Owl Ridge Cabin, a gorgeous, modern cabin designed in a style reminiscent of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, is an unparalleled guest experience. From the exquisite architecture and high-end appointments to its secluded locations in the woods, we’ve been rated as one of the best Wisconsin cabin rentals for many reasons. Though you can easily enjoy all the top-rated things to do in Wausau while staying in our cabins, you’re equally welcome to turn the weekend into a restful, secluded getaway in the woods. We’ve designed it to be perfect for both! 

Our cabin rental is easy to get to as well. We’re just a few hours away from Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Chicago – plus a whole lot of cities in between. Whether you’re coming from far away or treating our Wisconsin cabin rentals as a local escape, you’ll be so glad you made the journey. And don’t forget, of course, the option to stay at one of our other exquisite sister properties in the Midwest: The elegant and historic Stewart Inn in Wausau and the charming Hotel Galena and Riverboat Suites in historic Galena, Illinois.

Luxury Wisconsin Cabin Rentals for Couples

Though there are plenty of Wisconsin cabin rentals to choose from – plus several in neighboring Midwest states as well – none of them hold a candle to the curated guest experience at the Owl Ridge Cabin. With an eye toward hospitality honed by years of welcoming guests to our sister property, The Stewart Inn, our luxury cabin was built with couples in mind. 

Our cabin rental holds the keys to a rejuvenating, unplugged weekend away with your sweetheart. It’s ideally situated on a 5-acre wooded parcel of land, set far enough from the road and away from all neighbors to ensure you have an experience as private and intimate as you need it to be. As you step across the threshold of our cabin, you’ll feel all the stress and tension wash away from your body, replaced by a sense of peace you can only find from such a luxurious and welcoming property. 

Unlike many Wisconsin cabin rentals, we offer everything you need from home—comfortable seating, a full and well-appointed kitchen, and a cozy bedroom. But the experience goes far beyond those standard amenities! Step into our luxurious, spa-like bathroom, and you’ll see exactly what we mean. The bathroom features a luxurious soaking tub which overlooks the scenic property outside. There’s also a steam shower, which is the perfect way to soothe those tired muscles and ease away the stress – it’s almost as if you’ve walked into your own private spa! 

We’ve outfitted our Wisconsin cabin rental with games for quiet evenings spent sharing laughs and creating memories. You’ll also have access to streaming services for a relaxed movie night. At the end of the day, retreat to the comfortable king-size bed, where you’ll enjoy the best night of sleep you’ll ever have away from home. You’ll find massive picture windows in each room overlooking the trees and wildlife. This connection with nature and each other is an experience you can’t find at other Wisconsin cabin rentals, not to mention large hotels and charming boutique Inns.

The Perfect Itinerary for Exploring Wausau

If you’re looking for fantastic Wisconsin cabin rentals that offer you a place to escape the busy city noise and focus on connection, the Owl Ridge Cabin is it. You don’t have to do much to enjoy your time here. Our cabin has everything you need for a fantastic weekend spent unplugged and away from the daily grind. We stock the cabin with board games, there’s a full kitchen for you to cook all your meals, should you want to do so, and there are various seating areas, including a firepit, outside for your seasonal enjoyment. As far as Wisconsin cabin rentals go, you’re hard-pressed to find an experience in all of the Midwest that compares to ours. 

However, there are just as many wonderful ways to foster connection and keep unplugged in the surrounding Wausau area. If you’re looking for more ideas on how to enjoy your time at our stunning Wisconsin cabin, we’ve put together a two-night itinerary for you.

Day One: Get Settled and Head into Downtown Wausau

Once you’ve settled into our cabin, head into downtown Wausau for some shopping. Downtown Wausau is filled with fantastic boutiques and art galleries and is a fun place to explore. We also recommend extending your walk from downtown to the River Walk in downtown Wausau. Oak or Fern Island Park is in the middle of the Wisconsin River and offers several trails around the island.

When you’re done shopping and looking around, grab a pre-dinner drink at the Timekeeper Distillery. It’s housed in Wausau’s historic Depot, and its cocktail list is exceptional, featuring classic staples and creative twists! Finally, end your evening with a romantic meal at one of Wausau’s finest restaurants. One of our favorites is Ciao Italian Restaurant. The food and ambiance are excellent, and the staff are exceptional! 

Day Two: Spend Some Time in Nature

As your first full day in Wausau, it’s an excellent opportunity to get out in the beautiful natural surroundings of our exciting city and enjoy a bit of a nature break. There are some great places to enjoy hiking in the area, including Rib Mountain State Park, home to Granite Peak Ski Area, The Big Eau Pleine ParkDells of the Eau Claire County Park, and Nine-Mile Country Forest Recreation Area. You could also take a scenic bike ride along the Mountain-Bay State Trail or enjoy some birdwatching or kayaking at Bluegill Bay Park.

On this night, we recommend dinner in the cozy comfort of your private cabin. One of the many things that makes us one of the most elevated Wisconsin cabin rentals is the experiences offered. One of those is our Culinary Experience. This upscale package includes a four-course gourmet dinner for two catered and served candlelit by a local chef. The dinner will be served alongside two bottles of wine that are hand-selected to match your custom seasonal menu. Our accomplished chef will provide a list of menu options several weeks in advance.

Day Three: A Little Art Before You Head Home

There’s little doubt that visiting the extraordinary Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum is one of the best things to do in Wausau. Whether you’re an avid art enthusiast or a casual observer, you’ll find much to love at this special place. It’s a year-round artistic treasure and, each fall, home to the popular Birds in Art Exhibit. If contemporary art is more your style, the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art won’t disappoint! 

Before you head home for the day, we recommend you head back into downtown Wausau for lunch. Popular favorites include Lemongrass Asian Fusion Cafe, Thrive Foodery, and Red Eye Brewing Company

As you can see, finding things to do in Wausau is easy. However, finding a space at one of the leading Wisconsin cabin rentals is not! Our cabin is a coveted getaway, and weekends and popular times of year are booked well in advance. Book your stay at our top-rated cabin rental in Wisconsin today!
