Overview
More
As of 2017, a Glacial Lake Cranberries marsh tour is only available when you stay at The Stone Cottage at Glacial Lake Cranberries or at LeChateau Bed and Breakfast. Glacial Lake Cranberries has been producing cranberries for 140 years and is one of the oldest cranberry marshes in central Wisconsin. Harvest time is the most colorful time to take pleasure in a tour and appreciate the natural beauty of the cranberry wetlands. During a guided tour you will see cranberry harvest and view a cranberry production video, cranberry memorabilia, and cranberry collectibles. Harvest begins late September and continues through October. Please call to reserve The Stone Cottage. Although harvest time is the most popular time to visit because of the beautiful fall colors complimenting the seas of floating red cranberries, every season offers our guests something special and unique to see. Whether it's hiking, biking, or birding, a stay at The Stone Cottage is your unique country retreat.

We traveled almost eight hours to check seeing a cranberry harvest off our bucket list. This tour was better than we could have ever expected. We saw pretty much every step of the harvest. Do this! You will be glad you did.

The tour was great! We watched a video, heard some history on Glacial Lake Cranberry farm, tried some cranberries, and got a tour of the cranberry bogs in a bus during harvest. The owners did the tour & were very knowledgeable.
