Destination guide

You'll always feel at home in Cumberland

You might want to find a good realtor. Known as "The Island City," Cumberland is an idyllic lakeside city that may just make you want to move there. Once a prominent logging center, Cumberland's now one of Barron County's many close-knit farming communities and a popular vacation destination. What's more, its shimmering waters, lush maple forests, and meandering trails can be enjoyed all year round. When you book a Cumberland vacation rental, you may find that it's the best decision you'll ever make.

Things to do

Playing the pioneer in an old-timey village

If you're a history buff then you'll love the Pioneer Village Museum. Nestled among pine trees, this 40-building museum features an authentic 1880s village, complete with a jail, saloon, blacksmith shop, and railroad depot. Speaking of railroads, the heritage Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad is only a 35-minute drive away. And if you're a nature lover, you'll enjoy a visit to either McKenzie Creek State Wildlife Area or Loon Lake Wildlife Area, both of which are within a 30-minute drive from Cumberland.


You're never bored on (and off) the water

Cumberland was nicknamed "The Island City" because it's almost completely surrounded by the waters of Beaver Dam Lake. As you'd likely guess, there's lots to do on the lake, including fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and other water sports. If you'd rather keep your feet dry, then just lay back at picturesque Cumberland Lakeside Beach Park. And when the leaves turn and the snow falls, you can hop on a snowmobile and enjoy more than 250 miles of trails across Barron County.


Getting nice and toasty in July and August

Cumberland, like the rest of west Wisconsin, has a typical humid continental climate. If you come in summer, pack light. In July and August, it gets pretty toasty as the mercury pushes into the mid 80s. If you're in Cumberland in the winter, pack heavy. There's lots of snowfall from December to February, and temperatures often dip below zero at night. While it's rarely crowded, you can expect the most visitors from late June till August, so if you're looking for a good deal on Cumberland vacation rentals, try in April or May.

Natural features

Keep an eye out for them bears!

If you're in Cumberland, it's probably best if you leave your mountaineering gear behind. This part of Wisconsin is pretty flat, and consists of a lot of grass fields, lowland brush, pothole lakes, and maple and aspen forest. The area is rich in wildlife, including ducks, geese, deer, and ruffed grouse, in addition to gray squirrels and black bears. A great spot to see such animals in their natural habitats is the Loon Lake Wildlife Area, which is just a 10-minute drive south of Cumberland.
