Wisconsin winters can be rough and you just never know what to expect weather wise. It could be 30 degrees and snowing one day, then sunny and 55 the next day. We’re sort of going through that this week as we’ve had spring-like temperatures since Friday but they’re predicting tomorrow will only be 44 degrees. The unpredictable weather certainly makes it a bit more difficult to make travel plans because we just never know what road conditions might be like. That’s why we like to plan things close to home and today I’ve partnered with Grand Geneva Resort to share some Wisconsin winter staycation ideas with you.
A staycation is an awesome idea during the winter and Grand Geneva Resort is conveniently located close enough to Milwaukee, Racine and Waukesha for a quick weekend getaway. It’s just a short distance from Madison, Sheboygan and the Illinois border too and offers luxurious and relaxing accommodations for travelers young and old alike.
Grand Geneva Resort ensures guests’ comfort by providing comfortable beds along with extra blankets and pillows in their over-sized guest suites. Your family will stay entertained with the flat screen television loaded with many channels and the ability to connect your Netflix account. If a nice soak in the tub is your idea of relaxing, they’ve got you covered in there too with a television screen built right into the mirror. Lil Man got a kick out of that!
Because movie time often means snack time, Grand Geneva Resort provides a basket full of tasty snacks to make your family movie night perfect, for an additional charge.
If you’re looking for more of a meal than a snack, you can dine right at the resort in one of the on-site restaurants. In fact, you never really have to leave if you prefer not to because there are multiple restaurants, bars and even a coffee shop right inside Grand Geneva Resort. You’ll even enjoy nightly entertainment right next to the lobby, in a cozy sitting area.
Your family can also soak up some fun in the swimming pool, unwind in the hot tub or play some table tennis. The WELL Spa & Salon is also on site to provide a bit of pampering and ultimate relaxation.
A peek out your patio door might offer a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding woods. It’s quite the sight to wake up to so be sure to reserve a Lakeview room if you’d like to take advantage of that view.
Perhaps your family is more of the outdoorsy type and that’s perfectly fine because there are plenty of things to keep you busy outside at Grand Geneva Resort in the winter time too. The Mountain top ski hill might be your idea of heaven and even if there isn’t actual snow, you’ll find some here thanks to their snow making machine!
Other outdoor activities might involve a walk through the trails on the property, guided trail ride by horseback or even a horse-drawn carriage ride. Nothing beats a cozy fire to end the evening right!
Grand Geneva Resort will feel like your home away from home during your entire stay at the property and you’ll likely be a bit sad when it’s time to go home after your fun or relaxing Wisconsin winter staycation adventure.
