Life can get rather hectic at times and when you juggle the house, the kids and work, it can get downright exhausting. Well there’s no better way to recharge than grabbing a good friend and taking a few days to unwind and that’s just what Maureen from Wisconsin Mommy and I did a few weeks ago when we enjoyed a relaxing and playful girls getaway at Island Resort & Casino. Though we were provided with accommodations and other perks, all opinions are my own.
The staff at Island Resort & Casino made sure that we felt like first class travelers; starting with the amazing accommodations. We had the a gorgeous view from the top floor, in the spacious and luxurious Presidential Suite.
That, my friends is not fall foilage. It’s the sunset bouncing off the trees. What a gorgeous view from up here! @islandresortandcasino @puremichigan @wisconsinmommy #ad #IslandGG #o3to1travels #puremichigan #travelmichigan #visitmichigan #travel #traveling #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #sunset #tree #nature
To say that this Presidential Suite is spacious is an understatement. It is huge – complete with a living room, dining room and full kitchen. As if that wasn’t enough, Maureen and I each had our own very large bedrooms with private bathrooms! Prepare to be awed when you check out this Facebook Live video tour of the Presidential Suite at Island Resort & Casino.
Island Resort & Casino offers travelers the perfect combination of relaxation and fun by offering a great selection of restaurants, a full service spa and a spacious casino, all under one roof.
The Drift Spa at Island Resort & Casino is the perfect place to start your girlfriends getaway off right. Relax and unwind in the tranquil environment, while enjoying one of many pampering spa treatments. I highly recommend the Sweetgrass Body Treatment (performed by Vannah), which is a full body scrub, followed by massage that allows you to “calm your nerves, sooth your emotions and balance your soul.” After your spa treatment, you are invited to enjoy the spa and pool areas for the duration of the day if you’d like.
When hunger starts to call your name, grab a bite to eat in one of the restaurants. There are quite a few to choose from with everything from your basic burger to delicious seafood and steak on the menu.
Once your belly is full, grab your favorite cocktail from the bar and pick your favorite slot machine or try your hand at one of the Blackjack or Poker tables. I’m not really a big gambler, so I really appreciate that Island Resort & Casino offers penny machines, along with their quarter and dollar machines. It was nice for beginners like Maureen and I because we still got to have fun and enjoy the experience!
Guests also have access to the Island Showroom, a 1,327 seat theater style showroom that offers entertainment and has also hosted some of the biggest names in entertainment!
Step just outside of the resort and the fun continues at Sweetgrass Golf Club, a nationally acclaimed 18-hole championship course.
Maureen and I had such a nice time during our relaxing and playful girls getaway at Island Resort & Casino, located in Michigan’s UP. A 4.5 hour drive from the Milwaukee area, it was the perfect destination for a fun road trip adventure. It’s located just outside of Escanaba too, so if you’re planning a trip to the area, definitely stop in at Island Resort & Casino to try your luck!
