On Tuesday, the upscale cabin company formerly known as Candlewood Cabins announced they were changing their name to “Anaway Place,” a change that “marks the beginning of some new and exciting offerings” for the complex, according to the company’s Facebook post.
“With a little whimsy and wordplay, the name Anaway Place hints at the experience guests of our cabins have long loved and that we’ll continue to provide,” the announcement said.
With 26 years of offering a unique getaway experience under their belt, the company is seeking to elevate the experience of customers looking forward, while not changing the simple system that has worked for so long.
In a series of posts this past week, Anaway Place has listed other new additions to the cabin stay, including a “soon-to-launch” online store and new eco-friendly goods, sold both at the physical boutique and online.
Anaway’s cabins are billed above all else as a getaway; being founded before wifi and cellular data were even around, the emphasis on “unplugging” and “being present in the moment” reigned particularly true for the cabins, long before ideas like mindfulness and digital detoxes were in vogue.
The cabins in the Driftless Area of Richland County have long been a popular destination (frequently booked up to two years in advance) for Milwaukeeans in need of a getaway. Their boutique decorations, homey feel, and sense of a “getaway” from the rush of daily life have given them an undeniable appeal; one they hope to maintain amidst the rebranding.
The various retreats (of which there are seven total) offer a wide range of experiences, from the Glass and Woodland House cabins that are popular honeymoon destinations to the spacious Barn cabin that can comfortably house groups of 12.
Between each, differences in design, decoration, location and experiences (some offer a woodstove fireplace, some, a bluetooth speaker) create a truly singular experience that explains the vast popularity of the cabins.
So whether you’re a newlywed couple, a family looking for a woodsy retreat, or a Justin Vernon-like creative in search of a remote Wisconsin cabin to hone your craft, Anaway Place remains a long-loved, dependable option, just with a new name.
