Looking for a cabin or suite near Madison.

What kind of cabin or suite hotel accommodations can we find within 30 miles of Waunakee, Wis., for a party of two couples the weekend of July 10, 2010? Suggestions, please. - Cheryl, St. Paul Since Waunakee is between Madison and the Wisconsin Dells, you have plenty of options. For July, now is the time to reserve.

First, go to the lodgings page at Travel Wisconsin. Choose Cabins & Cottages or Condos & Vacation Homes. Click the Directory tab.

Then make a search for the area you want. On the right, you can mark boxes for the amenities you want.

There are four options for Cabins & Cottages that are within 25 miles of Waunakee and have at least two bedrooms.

If you like paddling, the Wisconsin River Retreat looks nice (I was just considering it myself for a paddling trip). It has two-bedroom cottages right on the Wisconsin River near Mazomanie.

Look under Condos & Vacation Homes, and you'll see Lake Wisconsin Cottage on Lake Wisconsin, near Poynette.

If you check under Hotels & Motels and ask for a kitchenette, you'll see seven hotels with suites.

There are also all kinds of places to stay in the Wisconsin Dells.

You also could check VRBO and HomeAway for private rentals. On VRBO, there are 17 places listed in the Lake Wisconsin area.
