(LADYSMITH, WI) — Rusk County Development, Zoning, and Public Health will be offering a one hour webinar on operating a Vacation Rental, on Tuesday, February 2 at noon.

In recent years Vacation Rental accommodations (Tourist Rooming Houses) have been growing at a tremendous rate, including in Rusk County. Vacation Rentals are generally privately-owned residential properties (houses, cabins, lake property) that are made available for short term rental. They can be entire properties, a cabin, or a room in a larger property. These properties are typically rented through a number of online websites. Existing accommodation providers are also utilizing these vacation rental channels to market and book their properties.

The webinar will discuss various aspects property owners should consider when choosing to operate a vacation rental, including annual licensing and the permitting process. Also, Rusk County Tourism will participate in the webinar to discuss rental marketing and provide additional assistance. Anybody considering a vacation rental or already operating a property is encouraged to participate.

Those interested in the topic can participate online or by phone. To sign-up call 715.532.2257 or email and log-in information will be provided.


“When I went to college in the cities, I lost all feeling of community. When I graduated, I knew I needed to get back home to a community that I trusted. Ladysmith is a town where you can bring your car in to Flambeau Auto or Jerry’s and not be worried about them taking advantage of your lack of car knowledge. You can go out to eat at Family Restaurant and the owner and all the waitresses know you by name, or walk into Cedar Lodge and have your favorite drink already set out for you. Being able to graduate college, move back to such a welcoming community that I trust, surrounded by family, while having a great job right out of college? That’s a no-brainer!”
