Romantic Destinations for a Weekend Getaway
Last Updated: 2/27/2014
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, romance is hot on many people’s minds. But you don’t have to fly to Paris to put spice in your relationship. In fact, the spark you’re in search of may be closer than you think. Catch the love bug at one of our favorite romantic destinations for a Wisconsin weekend getaway.
If you’re looking for a romantic Wisconsin resort, look no further than The American Club in Kohler. Pamper yourself and your loved one with a massage at the Kohler Waters Spa, a Forbes Five-Star spa. Relax with new treatments like their Hammam Ritual, an 80-minute hydrotherapy treatment based on the traditions of Turkish Hammam bathhouses. For a unique massage experience, discover the new WaveMotion body treatment, which allows guests to feel weightless as the revolutionary table rocks, tilts and rotates 360 degrees.
If you’re heading to Kohler over Valentine’s Day weekend, you won’t want to miss their In Celebration of Chocolate Weekend. Reserve your seat for a special wine dinner, chocolate workshop, choc-tail mixing, or chocolate and coffee pairings class.
The American Club also has several romantic resort packages starting at $314 per couple. For reservations, please call 800.344.2838.
What’s more romantic than horseback riding though the snow? At Fantasy Hills Ranch in Delavan, frolic though a 70-acre winter wonderland or get cozy under the stars on a moonlit sleigh ride. After, head to the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa for pampering, a four-star dining experience, and luxury accommodations.
Grand Geneva is a AAA Four-Diamond resort that features 355 newly renovated guest rooms, three restaurants, two golf courses, and both indoor and outdoor waterparks. No matter which suite you pick (deluxe guests rooms or the executive suite), you’ll enjoy the luxury of tripled Egyptian cotton sheets, stunning views and bath amenities for their on-premises WELL Spa + Salon.
At Grand Geneva, outdoor beauty and activities are just as plentiful as what’s going on inside. Located on 1,300 acres, you can ski and snowboard to your heart’s content, or take in the views from a different angle — on horseback.
French for “clear water,” Eau Claire is a must-see destination in winter. Located just southeast of the city is Augusta, home to one of the area’s most tranquil retreats, Augusta Victorian Rose B&B.
This classic Victorian house was built in the early 1900s but renovated with all the modern amenities travelers need. Nestled between rolling hills, lakes, rivers, forests and charming open meadows, you’ll get all the quiet and relaxation you need.
For dinner, head to High Shores Supper Club in nearby Chippewa Falls. The intimate atmosphere is made even more romantic with sunning views of Lake Wissota. Roast duckling, filet mignon wrapped in bacon, steak, lobster, and shrimp scampi are just some of the decadent entrees couples enjoy ordering for a special night out.
End your night at Infinity Beverages, Eau Claire’s newest winery and only distillery. Enjoy samples, wines by the glass and specialty drinks in their new tasting lounge. Bonus: Everything they serve is produced on-site.Romance
