With winter rapidly approaching, you might find yourself looking for a change of scenery that will give your whole family something different to look forward to. We understand. Even those of us who are typically quite content staying at home are feeling a bit stir-crazy with all the COVID-19 quarantining we’ve been doing. Especially if you have a young family, that winter break from school is the perfect time to embrace all the fun Wisconsin winters have to offer! Edenwood Ranch and Preserve, a nature resort in Wautoma, WI, has something for everyone.


Cabins for a Cozy Wisconsin Getaway


One of the top amenities you should look for when researching cabin getaways in WI is comfortable, luxurious lodging. Don’t think that you need to sacrifice sleep quality when you book a nature escape. Edenwood has the best of both worlds – a winter wonderland outside AND gorgeous, rustic, 5-star accommodations inside. When you stay with us, you have exclusive access to:

  • 4 multi-bedroom cabins
  • A 7-person hot tub
  • Full kitchen in each cabin
  • Indoor fireplaces
  • Open concept kitchen/living room space to socialize
  • In-unit washer & dryer
  • Breathtaking views
  • And much, much more!

Check it out for yourself in our virtual property tours. You won’t believe your eyes! And the best part is that your family will have the whole place all to yourselves so you can bring Grandma, Grandpa and the cousins, too.


Family-Friendly Winter Activities


Some of the best memories your family will have from your time on vacation will be of the activities you do all together. To that end, we compiled a list of the top activities our staff and families enjoy doing together in the winter. Most of them require no previous experience or special skill set, just a good attitude and a bunch of people you love.


  • A card game tournament (Try Uno or Spoons if you have a variety of ages involved)
  • Cut out paper snowflakes to decorate the cabin with
  • Make hot cocoa and tell stories about past favorite holiday vacations
  • Hold a snow-sculpture competition
  • Have a snowball fight
  • Create your own snowy Northwoods Ninja Warrior course and time each other going through it
  • Bring along a beloved book series and have family story time each night in front of the fire


Outdoor Adventures in Nature


Of course, no winter wonderland vacation would be complete without some space to enjoy the great outdoors! Edenwood is situated on a 500-acre nature preserve that you will have full reign of while you stay with us. And we’ve got toys galore available for your family to enjoy using even if the snow doesn’t show. Some can’t-miss activities we highly recommend for your winter wonderland vacation include:
