Bad-at-Romance-Filter: Chicagoland Weekend Away
August 26, 2009 9:05 AM   Subscribe

Gotta-Get-Away Filter: I'm trying to book a weekend away with my darling fiancée in late september or early october for our combination birthdays/two year anniversary.

We're looking at more of a spa/resort type of situation more than a B&B. We'd like to get a couple's massage, relax in a hottub, and generally lounge around a lake with a good book. We're trying to fit this into a regular weekend, so a max, 4-5 hour drive from Chicago. One of our friends recommended Heidel House, but the reviews seem to swing wildly, especially off-season.

American Club, Kohler, Wisconsin, 150 miles north. Done. Seriously. It's amazing. We got married there. Be sure and check the special packages page.

Oh, and if the American Club itself is too pricey, try the Inn at Woodlake, owned by the same folks, and just down the street. It's more modern than old-world, and no hot tubs AFAIK, but you can still get the spa experience. Plus, there are special rates through the end of September.

no, I don't work for them, but the personal service wrt my wedding was unbelievable. We're going back for our first anniversary next month (see you there, heh).

Response by poster: The Inn at Woodlake is a little closer to our price range, but thanks!

I just made reservations for the last weekend in September at Woodlake. I'd call NOW. I mean RIGHT NOW. They had nothing available on Saturday.
