Where to Stay: B&B’s in Wisconsin

There’s no better time to trek out to a cozy oasis than in the still of winter — especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Not only are Wisconsin’s bed and breakfasts less crowded this time of year, but there’s no better place to watch the snow fall as you sip on a steaming mug of hot cocoa or coffee and leave the rest of the world behind.

No matter what part of the state you’re headed to for a getaway, there are dozens of B&B’s to choose from in a variety of price ranges.

If you’re headed to Door County, visit Door County Lighthouse Inn.
Nestled between 300 miles of the Door County shore, this lighthouse-decorated B&B has five guest rooms and is within walking distance of downtown Egg Harbor. If you come before the end of March, take advantage of their special Sleigh Bells and Romance getaway. This includes a two weekend-night stay, activities, meals and more. Price: $401-$491/weekend

If you’re headed to Hayward, visit the McCormick House.
Upscale and elegant. Although this Victorian mansion was built in 1887, it has undergone extensive remodeling while maintaining the beauty of the time period. Each of the six guest rooms feature high definition televisions, DVD players and private bathrooms, all with under-floor heated marble. Another example of luxury at McCormick House? A daily a la carte breakfast is served on Wedgwood bone china. Price: $135-$199/night

If you’re headed to La Crosse, visit Rainbow Ridge Farms.
If you love animals, make your getaway unforgettable by staying at this beautiful southwestern Wisconsin farmhouse. Located on a 35-acre working hobby farm in Onalaska, you can help feed animals, milk goats and collect eggs. Each of their four guest rooms have private baths and comfortable beds. Awake to a wonderful country breakfast before antiquing, visiting Amish farmsteads or cross-county skiing. Price: $75-$165/night

If you’re headed to Lake Geneva, visit Seven Oaks.
Romance is in the air at Seven Oaks. With nine suites in seven one-floor buildings, this B&B offers privacy like no other.

If you’re headed to Milwaukee, visit Port Washington Inn.
Located just 25 miles north of Milwaukee in Port Washington, this inn is just as eco-friendly as it is elegant. They were even named one of the Top Ten Eco Elegant Inns of Wisconsin in 2010. Their locally sourced food is something guests constantly rave about. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, this five-room B&B has framed views of Lake Michigan from its perch on Sweetcake Hill. Only a few blocks away from Port Washington's historic district, restaurants, shops, parks, the lighthouse museum and more are only a few blocks away. Price: $159-$229/night

If you’re headed to Wisconsin Dells, visit White Rose Inns.
