Seek the Unique at TWO NEW INNS!

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

We’re delighted to tell you about 2 B&Bs that have just joined WBBA.

Door County Lighthouse Inn in Egg Harbor/Door County is a cozy lighthouse-styled B&B. Innkeepers Claire & Frank are your source for ‘everything lighthouse’ – including lighthouse tours by trolley packages. And, rather than choose which winery to visit, check out their Wine & Dine package: tour & taste at 4 wineries, dine, and leave the driving back to the inn to the trolley. Claire notes: “in May we expect the cherry and apple tree blossoms to show!”

Allyn Mansion B&B is one of those rare properties at which the term ‘elegant’ is appropriate – it was the grand prize winner nationally for historic restoration and is considered among Wisconsin’s 20 most remarkable homes – it’s in the book! But, relax … at Innkeeper Randy’s evening wine and craft beer reception, and therafter in your spacious suite furnished with a 32” flat screen tv (premium satellite access), WiFi w/a Samsung Galaxy 4 tablet and stereo system. And just so you know, your private bath is stocked with aromatherapy soaps and plus Turkish towels. The Allyn Mansion B&B is located in Delevan, in the Lake Geneva area.

Step back into the elegant past with all the amenities of today at the Allyn Mansion.

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.
