it's cabin time™ in Elkhart Lake
Elkhart Lake resorts and cabin lodging can be found right here. If you’re looking for a little adrenaline rush during your Wisconsin vacation, an Elkhart Lake cabin rental places you right next door to Road America. This world-class, 4-mile race track utilizes the natural glacial Kettle Moraine area topography of rolling hills and steep ravines for a more than exciting challenge for even some of the world’s best car and motorcycle racers. Tom Cruise, David Letterman, Tim Allen and Paul Newman have all raced on this track and enjoyed the inherent natural beauty of the area. Road America’s Sunset Cruising option lets you drive your own vehicle on the track with three guided laps at lower speeds. For your own personal extreme sport adventure, try their 1200-foot twin zip line that reaches speeds of 50 mph. This is the Midwest’s fastest and tallest zip lines, so be prepared to fly.
The crystal clear, spring-fed waters of Elkhart Lake have been described as Mediterranean-like blue. Check out this amazing 120-foot deep lake while on the Captain Tom’s Elkhart Queen pontoon boat tour. You’ll learn all about the rich history of the lake and city and how the area’s first automobile racetrack once traversed through the city. In addition to affordable Elkhart Lake resorts, several businesses rent kayaks, canoes, SUPs, pontoon boats, and personal watercraft for your on-water enjoyment. The culinary scene in Elkhart Lake has just about everything you could imagine from casual to fine dining; some venues include spectacular lakeside views. You’ll be certain to take the short journey from your central Wisconsin cottage into the downtown area to sample the menus.
Located near the northern end of the Kettle Moraine State Park, a visit to the Wade House historical site allows you to step back in time and experience how people travelled by stagecoach along a wooden plank road to Sheboygan. Guided tours are available though the old stagecoach hotel and you can see what hotel accommodations were like in the “olden days” before electricity. The Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum at the site houses a large collection of horse and hand drawn vehicles used between 1870-1915. Today you can walk, ride your bike, in-line skate, and drive a moped along the 17-mile course of the Old Plank Trail. Just a short drive from your Sheboygan County vacation home, the Kettle Moraine State Park also has 132 miles of trails of all types for additional exploration. Plan your trip now to experience the amazing beauty of the fall colors; and it’s just a short drive over to see the magnificent Lake Michigan beaches.
