Canoe Bay
, Chetek:
Hmmmmmm……. Adults only? Secluded in Wisconsin’s North Woods? “Fresh flowers, baked goods and steaming coffee discreetly delivered each morning“? Canoe Bay/ Relais & Chateaux definitely earns the title of Fabulous!

Delafield Hotel, Delafield:
Located in charming Delafield, less than a half hour west of Milwaukee and only 50 minutes east of Madison, The Delafield Hotel‘s “luxury lodging provides a great base for a weekend getaway”.

Old Rittenhouse Inn, Bayfield:
When your travels take you to Wisconsin’s far north, be sure to check out the “luxurious rooms and suites with up-to-date amenities (minus TVs)” at the Old Rittenhouse Inn.

Sundara Inn & Spa, Wisconsin Dells:
The Midwest Living feature starts with these words: “The real world can’t get past the front gate of Sundara Inn and Spa.” Almost sounds like a challenge until you arrive on the Sundara property and discover the peace in their pine forest…

Also making headlines as a “Mountain Hideaway Right in the Midwest”, is the Percheron Paradise Romantic Hideaway near La Crosse. Describing their chalet  as “immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with a nearly complete wrap around deck and extras such as sparkling apple juice, wine glasses and a candle that were ours to keep“, the author also shares ideas on things to do in the area – if you can be tempted to leave the 200+ acres of quiet seclusion!  Click on over and read the full article here.
