Driftless Trout Cabin
The Driftless Region in Wisconsin is one of the most beautiful places to explore and stay, and it’s even better when you can bring your furry companion with you. Luckily, there are many rental vacation homes and cabins in the Driftless ready to welcome you and your pet during your stay. If you find yourself road tripping near the Hillsboro area, one pet friendly stay is the Driftless Trout Cabin, where pets can stay for no additional cost. Accommodating up to four guests, the location gives you access to the entire cabin and 5.6 acres of outdoor space. Driftless Trout Cabin is near kayak and canoe rentals, prime fishing locations, and hiking at Wildcat Mountain State Park and Kickapoo Valley Reserve, so there will be plenty of pet friendly outdoor recreation as well.
Where to begin? Start by checking out the Driftless Trout Cabin listing on AirBnB to see when the cabin is available for booking. Being located near a farm, be sure your pet is comfortable around cattle before booking, as you may see a cow from time to time grazing in the nearby pasture.

Towhee Cabin is another pet friendly stay in Vernon County. Located in Viroqua by Tainter and Mcgraw creeks only a 15 minute drive south of downtown Viroqua, the property is the perfect place to stay with your pet while exploring the area. The quiet, private cabin will welcome you and your pet each day you stay and offer plenty of space for exercising with private trails starting right in the backyard. Towhee Cabin can house up to 5 people comfortably and also offers guests an outdoor firepit and porch for sitting and enjoying the outdoors or a night of stargazing. With Viroqua being only a short drive away from the cabin, you can easily explore the charming Driftless city and the many great businesses and restaurants while still enjoying the remoteness and serenity of the property when you return.
Where to begin? Towhee Cabin has a two pet max, so be sure to keep this in mind when booking a stay. The on-site, private trails are perfect for walking a dog, and you can enjoy the nearby Class 1 trout streams if you bring along your fishing gear.
