Cabin Ridge is a 400 acre recreational facility located in Cadott, Wisconsin owned and operated by Mark and Tammy Gilles. We provide a variety of year around activities with our horse drawn vehicles. There are activities for groups of all sizes. The gas light retreat provides a great get away along scenic Paint Creek, on the edge of the Irish Settlement.
Small groups can enjoy a horse drawn ride in a 4 passenger carriage or 6 passenger sleigh ride. We have vehicles of varying sizes to accommodate any group.
In addition to wagon and sleigh rides groups of 16 or more can enjoy
bonfires, picnics and meals in the woods. Two pavilions allow groups to
sit around the bonfire to toast marshmallows and sip hot chocolate. If the
groups prefers they can roast hot dogs and munch on potato chips along with
the marshmallows and hot chocolate.

woods to cut their own Christmas tree. The Cabins get decked out in
Christmas finery. One has to be in a festive mood with the huge decorated
Christmas trees and roaring fireplaces. It is a busy season with Christmas
parties for businesses, organizations and families.
