Romantic Getaways in Driftless Wisconsin

December 2nd, 2010 by

We did Boris, but you weren’t interested in our advice, which for cats, natives, and visitors alike, is to find a warm blanket and curl up, preferably with your beloved (for Boris, that’s Riley, our golden retriever, but that’s another story).  Driftless Wisconsin has a wide selection of romantic packages, complete with romantic dinners, special amenities, and cozy lodging

The Inn at Lonesome Hollow in Soldiers Grove offers a “Be Romantic” package added to your room, suite, or cabin; which includes a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of wine or champagne served in your keepsake wine flutes, and box of top-of-the-line chocolates.  Their 2011 Valentine Package offers a one-night option or $25 discount on a two-night “Be Romantic” stay.  Pete and Nora will acquaint you with their secluded valley setting, a romantic backdrop worthy of further exploration.

The Westby House B&B in Westby offers a “Date Night Package” that includes a vase of fresh flowers, a bottle of house wine in keepsake Westby House etched wine glasses, a variety of fruits and cheese, and a chocolate bedtime snack.  The “Romance of Valentine Weekend Package” offers “fine accommodations and dinner in a Victorian atmosphere.”  Receive Cheese, Fruit and Chocolate Appetizer Trio when you book two nights and reserve a table for Saturday night dinner.  Tell Mike and Marie that I sent you.  

The AmericInn Lodge & Suites in Prairie du Chien features its “Roses and Candles” Package, which includes – surprise! – a dozen roses on your bed stand and candle-lit whirlpool.  Or try the “Really, Really Romantic” package that presents “pink petals, pillows and possibilities.”  Hmmm….  The AmericInn sits in downtown Prairie du Chien close to shopping and dining, next to Ft. Mulligan’s Grill, where you can start your romantic evening with dinner ($25 gift certificate included with “Roses and Candles”). 

In downtown Viroqua, the Seevers Room at the Viroqua Heritage Inn B&B features a plush queen bed, Jacuzzi for two, fireplace, private bath, and complimentary bottle of champagne or wine.  And for a more rustic take on romance, consider the Trillium B&B in LaFarge.  It’s located on a working organic farm and has country cabins complete with full kitchen and wood-burning fireplace to warm your affections.  

If you can see me starting to blush, you know it’s time to stop reading about romance and make a reservation.  The romantic experience begins when you cross the border into the magical settings of Driftless Wisconsin.  And remember to bring the cat in before you leave home.
