Cabin Ridge Rides near Cadott Wisconsin great for a Family Day, or a Major Event.cabin ridge rides

Nick generally covers most of the projects out of our Cadott office of Woodland Management Service but this week I will be working over here while he handles a few projects at our Stevens Point office.

So while I am here it may be a good thing to cover a few things that you always wanted to know about Cadott.

One little business that I have admired for a while is a local farmer and woodland owner who created a thriving business using a concept known as agrotourism, Cabin Ridge Rides.

Rusty Gilles started this in 1988, just about the time that we opened our office North of Cadott, and it has been thriving ever since then.

Rusty started out with a team of horses, giving people a unique experience taking a wagon ride through the woods along with a tasty meal over the camp fire.  

He then grew his business into a major event planning organization where people hold weddings and other large family and company events.


The company is now run by Rusty's son Mark, give him a call and get ready for a fun day or event in the woods of Cadott Wisconsin.

Bob, how did you know that I always wanted to know about Cadott? :)

That video is incredible - makes me want to be right there.  I would love to do something like that for our local sleigh ride.  Beautiful!

Congratulations to Rusty for growing such a successful operation that is a real crowd pleaser.

Good example of the horses wanting to get back to the barn, so they just picked up the pace. Love see family businesses, so thanks for sharing about this one.

Bob that is so inviting. You do a great presentation. Cold and snow is not on my mind but I have to say that Cadott looks like a fun experience.

I think an ActiveRain road trip to Cadott would be great fun.  There are so many cool things to see and do there and a really nice tree farm for sale.
