Short-Term Rentals

The City is seeing a growing interest in the use of residential properties for short-term rental purposes that are advertised by Vrbo, Airbnb, FlipKey, or HomeAway, to name a few.  Since the regulations vary dramatically from one community to the next, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with Baraboo’s regulations to determine if a property is eligible for use as a Short-Term Rental Dwelling.  The zoning regulations are contained in the City’s Code of Ordinances in Chapter 17 – Zoning Code in Section 17.13A, Short Term Rentals. Click HERE for The Short-Term Rental License Application.
