(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 thinking about coming back to Ladysmith after going away to college, I thought I could make a difference and make the younger generation appreciate this wonderful place that I grew up in. I wanted to give something back to the community that gave so much to me while growing up here. I love the small town feel of Ladysmith 🙂  I have a different attitude toward Ladysmith now that I am an adult …””
