Calling All Hardy Explorers

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Here in Wisconsin, we never let winter get in the way of a good outdoor event.   Stay at a Wisconsin B&B and you’ll always know you have a warm, cozy bed and warm, homemade breakfast to come back to.  So here are our picks for some terrific outdoor fests for each weekend in February, with links to B&Bs in the area, starting with the 24th annual Hot Air Affair in Hudson, February 1-3.  The weekend includes hot air balloon launches, a parade and geocaching.  The Snowflake Ski Jump Tournament will be held in Westby, February 1-2.  There’s the Sturgeon Stampede in Fond du Lac, February 8-10, with skating, broomball, ice bowling, and ice sailing.  The centerpiece of the Manawa Snodeo in Manawa, February 15-16, is the vintage snowmobile and motorcycle racing under the lights.  Rounding out the short month is the American Birkebeiner Cross-Country Ski Event in Hayward, February 21-23.  Also, feel free to take a gander at Travel Wisconsin’s Snow Conditions Report and click on your favorite activity to see what the conditions are like. Feeling hardy?  We hope so.

We’re Having a Heat Wave in Wisconsin

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

It seems summer temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s are now the norm for Wisconsin.  If you wilt without central air, rest assured there are plenty of cool and comfortable B&Bs in the state that fit the bill.  Another way to chill out is to book a waterfront B&B.  For B&Bs on lakes, try At the Lake House – Lake Geneva, Quiet Cottage on the Lake – Sturgeon Bay, Escape by the Lake – Hudson, Lake Orchard Farm – Sheboygan, Lake Ripley Lodge - Cambridge, and Lakeside B&B – Florence.  We suspect you’ve picked up on the theme!  Inns with river access include Mecan River House – Coloma, Riverside Manor – Marinette, and Riverview – Neshkoro.  Gee, we’re feeling cooler already!

Picture yourself cooled by Lake Michigan breezes while breakfasting at Quiet Cottage on the Lake in Sturgeon Bay (Door County). The French doors of the one private suite - yours - open to the deck and lakeshore. Bird-watching, shoreline stroll, s'mores, in-room massage ... just ask innkeeper Debby!
