it's cabin time™ in La Crosse
La Crosse area cabins, cottages, lodges and homes offer the perfect Mississippi River vacation escape. In 1856, LaCrosse began to grow due to steamboat traffic, fur trading, lumber and brewing companies into what is now a bustling river city with arts, culture, outdoor recreation and fine dining and shopping. You get the best of both worlds here in La Crosse. Over 1 million visitors a year can tell you that. In and around La Crosse is a gentle rolling landscape with bluffs and spectacular views and parks along the Mississippi River.
Are you looking for things to do in La Crosse? In warmer seasons, cruise the Mississippi on the La Crosse Queen. Hop on board to experience all the different kinds of cruises they offer. Events in La Crosse are some of the best in the Midwest. Festivals include Prairie Dog Blues Festival, held every year on historic St. Feriole Island, Oktoberfest, the very famous craft beer festival held every year that attracts hundreds of thousands of people. This is why we suggest you book way in advance. Coon Creek Trout Festival, Butterfest, Bicycle Festival, Riverfest and Rotary Fest are just to name a few too.
Grill out on the cabin patio, or try dining in La Crosse. A wide variety of gastronomy options and breweries offer something for even the pickiest eater. If you feel like something ethnic, they have Italian, Creole and Cajun, Mexican, Chinese, traditional Irish, and Indian food. Our favorites in the area include the Waterfront Restaurant & Tavern which offers fine dining with beautiful views of the Mississippi, and Piggy’s in the historic Foundry building. There’s even an old fashioned drive in called Rudy’s where the waitresses wear smiles, skates and even 50’s skirts sometimes.
Outdoor recreation is everywhere around the cottage and the LaCrosse area. Whether your going to be cruising at high speeds down the river, hiking or biking the bluffs, fishing for dinner or playing a round of golf, you won’t be disappointed. Even during wintertime there are so many things to do. Go downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing & ice fishing. Our suggestion: Hike the Grandad Bluff, a must see if you’re in the area. The views are incredible, especially in the fall and you can see the scenic town and three states.
