Travel + Leisure magazine listed big showers, little tubs as one of the hot travel trends a few years back. Wisconsin B&Bs that did this trend proud include Stewart Inn – Wausau with its huge double steam showers. Innkeeper Paul Welter notes “ Many of our guests are skiers, and they appreciate the soothing effects of steam on muscles and sinuses. You can enjoy aromatherapy along with your steam bath by placing essential oils in a small receptacle in the steam outlet.” Going beyond a room with a view, Canyon Road Inn’s 8’ long shower with multiple body sprays has a great view of the lake. You’ll indeed get the royal treatment in the Queen Bee Victorian room’s 4’ x 6’ shower at the Honeybee Inn – Horicon with a total of 9 heads & sprays.
This year, Budget Travel predicts travelers will demand more amenities, like free bottled water and Wi-Fi. Ha, the vast majority of Wisconsin B&Bs have been doing that all along! In fact, Inn at Wawanissee Point – WI Dells, and Arbor Inn – Prescott take it one step further and provide free wine and cheese tastings in the evening… Cold Spring Inn-Hubertus does this too, using the wines produced from their own vineyard. And here’s one travel trend for 2012 we especially like – TripAdvisor.compredicts more travelers will choose B&Bs this year than last.
