If you’ve wandered onto this page, you probably either have a very large rabbit or a couple of smaller ones. Either way, more room is often better for these furballs. Even if you only have one smaller rabbit, getting them a larger hutch typically only makes them happier.
However, you want a larger hutch that is functional—not one that only has its larger size going for it. In this article, we’ll review the best rabbit hutches that are bigger than average. These do come in several different “big” sizes, so we’ve provided the exact specifications for you to check. Let’s dive in!

The 6 Best Big Rabbit Hutches
1. Aivituvin Indoor Rabbit Hutch – Best Overall
|Size:||40.6 x 26 x 37.3 inches|
Of all the rabbit hutches we reviewed, the Aivituvin Indoor Rabbit Hutch with Pull-Out Tray quickly became the winner. It’s the best overall big rabbit hutch available for a few different reasons.
It’s made of strong and sturdy wood. According to many of the reviewers, the wood provides a durable foundation that can withstand the test of time. The metal feeding tray is convenient and makes mealtime faster, as well as keeps the rabbit’s dining area cleaner.
One feature that stands out is the inclusion of non-slip ramps, ensuring that your bunny can move around the hutch safely and comfortably. Additionally, the waterproof roof adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring your pet stays dry during unexpected showers. However, this feature probably won’t be all that helpful for those who keep their rabbits inside. We like that the hutch has four wheels with brakes on two of them, allowing for quick transportation between rooms. The large door makes it easy to take the bunny (or bunnies) in and out. When you have a big bunny, you need a big door, too.
For the most part, this rabbit hutch checks all of the boxes we were looking for. However, there were a few complaints we discovered. Some users found the roof and doors challenging to open and close, while others had difficulties with the wheels, citing wobbliness and poor locking mechanisms.
2. Coziwow by Jaxpety Wood Rabbit Hutch – Best Value
|Size:||43 x 17.91 x 31.69 inches|
If you’re looking to save a bit of money, you may be interested in the Coziwow by Jaxpety 2-Tier Wood Rabbit Hutch. This rabbit hutch is pretty large while still being much less expensive than other options. Therefore, we consider it the best big rabbit hutch for the money.
This hutch is spacious and well-designed. It allows your rabbit to hop around unhindered with plenty of room. It’s made of solid pinewood, which is coated in an eco-friendly stain for a natural aesthetic. The hutch can be used both inside and outside.
One of our favorite features is the hinged asphalt roof. This roof provides easy access to the hutch for cleaning while also keeping your pet protected. The two-tier design was also nice, as it adds extra space for your bunny.
Many users found this hutch to be great. However, a few did find that there were some quality control issues—some people found that there were missing parts, for instance.
3. Frisco Wooden Rabbit Hutch – Premium Choice
|Size:||62 x 23 x 31 inches|
The Frisco Wooden Outdoor Rabbit Hutch is a big, beautiful rabbit hutch that we absolutely fell in love with. However, you’re paying for what you get, which means that the price is a bit higher than most. Many rabbit owners may find this price plenty worth it, though.
This hutch is designed to be used exclusively outside, so it is much larger than many of the others. It can easily hold one larger rabbit or several smaller ones. Its PVC waterproof roof provides excellent resistance and protection against outdoor elements, ensuring that your pets stay dry and safe, even on rainy days. Plus, the PVC construction is much more durable than other models out there.
The removable tray makes the hutch extremely easy to clean. It easily slides in and out, allowing you to clean efficiently. The wire mesh above the tray prevents your rabbits from escaping while the hutch is being cleaned. (However, wire mesh can absolutely hurt some rabbits’ feet.)
With that said, some rabbits like the two-tier system, while others don’t. Therefore, this hutch can be a hit-or-a-miss for some rabbits.
4. PawHut Rabbit Hutch
|Size:||48 x 24.75 x 36.25 inches|
The PawHut 2-Level Rabbit Hutch is not as large as some other hutches we’ve mentioned, so keep that in mind before purchasing it. However, if you only need a moderately large rabbit hutch, this model works perfectly well. This hutch is perfectly large enough for one rabbit or even a couple of small ones, though. As always, check the dimensions to see if it’s the size you’re looking for.
Constructed with solid fir wood and a metal frame, this hutch offers excellent durability and strength. Compared to traditional wooden frames, the combination of wood and metal enhances its sturdiness. It will stand up for a lot longer, thanks to the metal. The water-based paint and tilt asphalt roof also add an extra layer of durability.
Rabbits need a very clean space, and this hutch makes that easy to achieve. It includes a pull-out tray for quick cleaning and a raised bottom to prevent the hutch itself from getting wet. Therefore, your rabbit should have a dry space at all times.
Some users did complain about the door latches, which aren’t the most secure. You may want to reinforce them if predators are a problem in your area.
5. Aivituvin Indoor & Outdoor Rabbit Hutch
|Size:||47.2 x 19.7 x 42.1 inches|
The Aivituvin 42.1-in Two Story Indoor & Outdoor Rabbit Hutch is designed with premium materials to ensure it lasts a long time, even when used outside. It has stairs and a platform to allow your rabbit to access both the upper and lower areas, providing more room with a smaller footprint.
We like how mobile this hutch is. It includes four metal wheels (with two brakes), allowing you to move it around as necessary. You could move this hutch between the inside and outside of your home with the weather if you’d like. This hutch also includes two deep trays to make cleaning up easier. This feature simplifies the cleaning process. (If it’s easier to clean, you’re much more likely to clean it.)
It features a central window that provides visibility, allowing you to observe your furry friend’s activities with ease. Additionally, the four lockable front doors offer hassle-free access. Even for larger rabbits, the doors are a pretty decent size.
That said, this hutch is a significantly harder assembly than others. The holes aren’t always in the right position, and the instructions can be unclear. Furthermore, while this hutch is made for the outdoors, it doesn’t include some of the weatherproofing features that others have.
6. Merry Products Tudor Decorative Rabbit Hutch
|Size:||45.08 x 38.98 x 24.21 inches|
The Merry Products Tudor Decorative Rabbit Hutch is absolutely adorable. It’s undeniably charming with its pitched roof, embellished doorway, and exposed woodwork. Its aesthetics are probably why most people purchase it.
However, while it does look very nice, there were several negative reviews discussing the poor quality of the wood. While this hutch is made to be used inside or outside, the wood isn’t protected, nor is it the highest quality. We don’t expect that it could withstand much of the rigors of being outside.
Assembling the hutch is pretty straightforward. The instructions are clear, and this company doesn’t seem to have problems with missing pieces. However, there are no pre-made screws for holes, so we recommend using a drill.
This hutch may not be the safest. It includes staples, glue, and thin, plastic parts that could easily be consumed if they were chewed off. This downside is one of the big reasons this hutch landed so low on the list.
Buyer’s Guide: Choosing the Best Hutch for Your Rabbit
Sadly, there aren’t too many rabbit hutches available on the market, especially big ones. Therefore, your choices are narrow, which makes choosing which house to get even harder. You may not find the perfect hutch, as it probably doesn’t exist.
Therefore, choosing the right hutch becomes a question of what you need to prioritize. In this section, we’ll go through some of the major features you need to keep an eye on when shopping for a larger hutch.
First, you need to figure out what “big” actually means for you. Large rabbits need large hutches, yes. But many companies sell “big” hutches that wouldn’t actually fit these larger rabbits. Therefore, it’s important to have the actual dimensions figured out before you hit the internet to shop.
When in doubt, bigger is usually better. Rabbits need a considerable amount of room to hop around and stretch their legs. While you will need to exercise your bunny regularly, it’s also vital that they can get some exercise in their hutch when you can’t supervise them.
If you have more than one rabbit, be sure to make the hutch even larger. While you don’t necessarily need double the space, two rabbits do need more room than one.
Big hutches require more material than smaller hutches. Therefore, it isn’t odd for companies to try and use less-than-stellar materials for their massive hutches. However, big hutches are also expensive. You don’t want to end up needing to purchase a new hutch every couple of years.
For this reason, you absolutely must pay attention to the material the hutch is made out of. Wood and metal are preferable, but wood alone is okay, too. Of course, the type of wood matters.
Sometimes, the company will blatantly tell you what the hutch is made out of. Other times, the material listed is simply “wood” or something similar. In this case, it’s even more important to lean on the reviews, as they’ll let you know how durable the hutch is.
If you’re going to use the hutch outside, you also need to consider weather resistance. You’ll need a hutch with weatherproofing features, like sealed joints, treated wood, and asphalt roofs. Sadly, many hutches are sold for outdoor use that don’t have any of these things, which means that they often break down very quickly.
These features also help protect your bunny while they are in the hutch, so you can’t afford to skip on them.
Cleaning a rabbit hutch can be a huge task, especially if you have several rabbits. Choose a hutch that has several features to make cleaning easier, such as removable trays and pull-out doors. These features can make it much easier to keep the cage clean.
While practically all rabbit owners have the intention of keeping their cages very clean, many of us don’t do it as well as we should. By choosing a hutch that makes the job easier, you increase the odds of convincing yourself to clean it. Therefore, while this feature may seem like something that you can skip, we do consider it pretty important.
Rabbits need proper ventilation and airflow to survive. While every animal needs to breathe, rabbits are particularly sensitive to stagnant air. Therefore, you cannot get a cage that’s completely closed in. Otherwise, your bunny won’t get enough fresh air.
Usually, hutches with good ventilation use a lot of windows, doors, and mesh to achieve this. You’ll often find that hutches may have a small, closed-in portion and a larger portion that’s mostly covered in mesh. This sort of design is preferable. Be cautious if you see a hutch that is more than 50% enclosed in wood.
If you’re housing your rabbit outside, you have to protect them from predators. Your hutch needs fairly secure latches, doors, and locks. Any mechanism that helps prevent predators from breaking into the hutch should be considered a good thing. The more, the better.
You should also consider the type of mesh utilized. As previously discussed, mesh helps ensure airflow. However, your usual plastic mesh isn’t going to stop a fox. Therefore, it’s very important that the mesh utilized is hard and can withstand teeth.
There are very few large hutches available. However, our favorite is the Aivituvin Indoor Rabbit Hutch with Pull-Out Tray. It’s durable and has a pull-out tray to make cleaning easier. Plus, it’s also in the middle of the pack price-wise.
If you’re looking for a budget option, we can also recommend the Coziwow by Jaxpety 2-Tier Wood Rabbit Hutch. This hutch has many of the features we look for, like having a pull-out tray. However, it is cheaper than most on the market, making it a more affordable option.
Hopefully, one of the large hutches on this list will work for you and your bunny.
