About It's Cabin Time® began as a simple, regional listing website for Wisconsin rental cabins in 2009. Over the past decade, we've been refining the process of matching vacationers with local homeowners and managers. We show our commitment to the #BookDirect movement by helping vacationers find the perfect rental, then providing the owner/manager's contact information so guests can plan and book cabins, cottages, lodges and homes directly. On major booking platforms, guests won't find the owner's contact information because those travel agencies do not want guests booking directly — for obvious reasons.

About Web Traffic

The regional websites under the It's Cabin Time® brand acquire renter traffic through what they refer to as DORSE (direct, organic, referral, social and email). Through smart SEO and DORSE, the sites have accumulated some impressive unpaid annual renter traffic, including 1.1 million sessions and 3.2 million page views! These numbers have caught the attention of large vacation rental property managers like Vacasa and VTrips, who list hundreds of their managed properties on our regional websites.

How Covid Affects Service

In an unexpected twist, regional restrictions on travel and tourism resulted in numbers above and beyond what was seen in previous years. As travelers turned to remote accommodations in drive-to locations, It's Cabin Time® took the opportunity to shine a brighter light on the growing book direct movement. In 2021, some of that mania has died down, but web traffic to and its regional listing sites is still well above what it was in 2018 and 2019.
