Published: March 24, 2021

Looking for that home away from home in Vilas County–a place where you could enjoy the beauty of Northern Wisconsin more fully?

There are affordable and beautiful rental options that offer a complete Vilas County vacation experience, whether you’re looking to escape for a weekend, a week or longer. Here are three avenues to find a perfect getaway.

Old World Charm Bed & Breakfast

In Phelps, a stately 1922 home on North Twin Lake treats guests to spectacular sunsets and abundant recreational options. Old World Charm Bed & Breakfast has two beautiful suites for rent—a lake view suite and a shared suite.

This historic home is the ideal place to unwind. There are plenty of opportunities for recreation on North Twin Lake and in the surrounding forest, but you may want to simply enjoy this property, and its amazing lakeside scenery. Stroll down a flagstone path to the water’s edge or enjoy the view from a comfortable chair up on the porch. Inside the home, you’ll find plenty of character, including original antiques and a gorgeous dining room that serves breakfast daily—a formal breakfast is served on the weekends and a continental breakfast is served weekdays. Relax and recharge in this beautiful home!
