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.
