According to industry research, a whopping 87% of travelers head to B&Bs for romance. We love that!

At any rate, check out the romance packages offering by Wisconsin B&Bs and see which offer the highest level of compatibility with your idea of a romantic spring getaway.

Holidays with the In-Laws…Not So Fast

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Sure, you may love your in-laws, but do you want to spend every waking hour of the holidays with them?  It’s OK to reply no. On the other hand, you may really like the comfy feeling you get staying at their home and the idea of a made-from-scratch breakfast.  Wisconsin B&Bs give you the best of both worlds – all the amenities with none of the drama.  Speaking of amenities, why not stay at a B&B with on-site spa services or its own gift shop or an indoor pool, just to up the escape factor?  There, problem solved and everyone is guaranteed good memories of the 2012 holiday season.

There just might be something as de-stressing as a dip in a pool …a massage! Innkeeper Loren (certified massage therapist) at Country Comfort provides on-site massage services. Here’s what one guest commented: “I highly recommend assisted stretching and massage on a consistent basis for any athlete. Loren’s services are truly great. He is a caring professional who strives to provide the best therapeutic care for his clients.” -Beth

What’s better than an indoor heated pool to de-stress and burn off a few calories? Ye Olde Manor House in Elkhorn invites you to do just that, whether the view to the outside is swirling snowflakes or blooming flowers.

Marathoners Make a Beeline to Wisconsin B&Bs

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Here’s a trend that’s coming on strong – amateur athletes choosing Wisconsin B&Bs when traveling for 5Ks, half-marathons, marathons, sprint triathlons, adventure races, well, you get the gist.  Makes sense when you consider B&Bs are in a rather unique position to customize just about anything a “weekend warrior” would need to be in peak condition for the competition.  In Door County, the Door County Lighthouse Inn offers to-go nourishment for the athlete and coffee cake for the athlete’s support team.  At the Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater, innkeeper Kathleen Fleming says the runners who participate in the Ice Age 50 and Kettle 100 may schedule a massage with the inn’s massage therapist, but most take ice baths in the inn’s huge tubs after the race!  If you’re heading to Oshkosh for the August 5 Olympic and Sprint Triathlon, the Brayton B&B has upscale bath amenities and beds to provide great comfort after the race.  

Could there possibly be a better way to unwind after a race? (we'll include the rat race too!) Innkeeper Kathleen at the Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater says it's your choice of whirlpool therapy - steaming soothing bubbles or tingling ice for sore muscles.

Are You Ruled by Your Heart or the Calendar?

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Sweetest Day is always the third Saturday of October.  Easy, right, especially when it comes to planning a romantic weekend getaway.  Not so for Valentine’s Day.  This year it falls on a Tuesday.  We asked our innkeepers if couples travel for Valentine’s Day even when it falls midweek.  The answer: Not so much.  Seems the weekend before and the weekend after are big with couples celebrating their love for each other.  Which is actually good news a) if you’re a traditionalist and think romance should be duly observed on February 14, no matter the day of the week; or b) if you’re able to sneak away midweek with the one you love.  Perhaps decide which region of the state you’d like to escort your sweetheart to, and then start researching inns for one that you’ll both love.

Here’s another option for those who like to hand a present to their partner – gift a Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association gift certificate as a token of how much you love traveling as a twosome.  Together you can choose a Romance Package that fits your mood and your schedule.  You must take a look at the romance offerings from Lazy Cloud B&B in Lake Geneva.  We’re intrigued by the “Enchanted Evening” romantic board game!  At the Door County Lighthouse Inn, the winery tour and cozy sleigh ride sound pretty wonderful.  The in-room massages included in the “Enhance the Romance Package” package from Westport B&B in Manitowoc would be especially relaxing for couples looking to slow down and reconnect.
