Top-of-the Line Retreats
Posted on: 12/13/2006
If you've been looking for the chance to enjoy a first-class getaway -- whether that means lounging in clay masks with friends or relaxing at a bed & breakfast with a certain someone -- stop putting it off and treat yourself to one of these top-of-the-line retreats.
By many accounts, this is the gold standard. The American Club, located just an hour north of Milwaukee, is the Midwest's only AAA Five Diamond Resort Hotel. A memorable experience awaits for a girlfriends-only getaway at the on-site Kohler Waters Spa, or a romantic getaway featuring world-class golf for him (at nearby Whistling Straits or Blackwolf Run) and equally exquisite shopping for you at the Shops at Woodlake. Sure, you'll brag about the amazing (and discounted) spa treatments, but the little touches like evening beverages and complimentary in-room movie are what make this a can't-miss destination that's well worth the price.
Gourmet meals and old-fashioned hospitality in a setting that's right out of the Victorian era. Perhaps the most well-known B&B in one of the most popular small-town vacation destinations in the Midwest, the Old Rittenhouse makes a great starting and ending point for each day of a long weekend reunion with friends.
What Sundara Spa lacks in history (it opened in 2003) it more than makes up for in service and an unsurpassed dedication to pampering your mind, body and soul. In their own words, "Sundara is more than merely beautiful structures. We are a haven where people reconnect with those most important in their lives. Where guests learn again how to slow down and relax. Where green practices are a way of life. Where healing takes place every day." Sold? We thought so.
Your room is waiting at the "new" Abbey Resort, Marina and Spa. After 40 years of attracting guests to their location along Lake Geneva (you know, Chicago's Playground), $40 million worth of redevelopment has ushered in a new era of relaxation and rejuvenation at the Resort and it's renowned Fontana Spa. Online specials are available for couples, friends, golfing pals and even entire families.
The brand-new CopperLeaf Boutique Hotel and Spa is making a name for itself among couples looking for an accessible -- yet memorable -- romantic getaway. The furnishings and amenities invoke images of a luxurious residence more than a typical hotel, and great service makes for a warm and inviting atmosphere. The Romantic Escape, Rendezvous for Two and Ultimate Romance packages are available in both Silver Whirlpool Suite and Platinum Fireplace Suite versions. Naturally, late check-out is included.This entry was posted in Places to Stay and tagged Features and Profiles
