Wisconsin Cabins for a Romantic Winter Getaway
Wisconsin winters are the perfect excuse to snuggle up in front of the fireplace with your special someone and let your worries melt away. Why not make a weekend—or a week—out of it? Here are some ideal spots for you and yours to escape this winter.
If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, plan a stay in the Cabin at The Cothren House. Built in the 1830s, this historic log cabin located near downtown Mineral Point has been restored to allow for modern amenities while preserving its rustic charm. Cozy up in plush bathrobes in front of the nine-foot fireplace and you and your partner will be transported to pure relaxation.
Take in more of the community’s history by enjoying a meal at the Commerce Street Brewery & Hotel, located in a historic former warehouse and dry goods store. Try the wine-pickled herring here or opt for the hearty Shepherd’s Pie.
Another dining option is The Walker House, where you can choose from 11 flavors of Cornish pasties while dining inside of an original mining cave. Be sure to call ahead, as meals are by reservation only.
With each cottage featuring fireplaces and whirlpool tubs and some boasting saunas and heated floors, these spaces make for a toasty time together in winter. The Elise and Elena – semi-underground cottages embedded into the side of a hill overlooking a farmscape—feature floor-to-ceiling windows revealing breathtaking panoramas. Both provide the perfect setting for a cozy couple’s getaway.
Be sure to stop by Door County Coffee & Tea Co. before heading home. With more than 60 coffees and teas to choose from, you’ll be sure to thaw any winter chill.
Experience the serene beauty of winter like never before from the comfort of Anaway Place. Building on the concept of their popular Glass House, the newest cabin offers modern décor, a full kitchen, a full bath with double-sized shower and a wood stove fireplace. The 360 degrees of floor-to-ceiling windows reveal striking panoramas of the Driftless Region, providing a breathtaking backdrop for a romantic retreat.
Stop by Wild Hills Winery for a tasting while you’re in the area. With home-grown flavors like Apple Cranberry and Driftless Sunset, you can raise a glass to delicious sips and quality time spent together.
