As some of you may know, I am a recent home owner of a beautiful condo in the neighborhood of Old Town in Chicago. As a new home owner the only mail you get are the bills and maybe one or two random spam mail. But today as I opened my mail I saw a big white envelope with my name on it and it said it was from the Inn on Woodlake in Kohler, Wisconsin. To my surprise, I have never heard of this town and two this is the first time I get a brochure to travel somewhere or more specifically to a local resort.
As I read through the one sheeter brochure, I noticed a lovely couple smiling and all I kept on thinking "oooh this would be a nice little local getaway for Marvin and I." The brochure states it is a peaceful getaway on the banks of Wood Lake. For those of you who don't know where Wood Lake is here is a map, it's about a 2 1/2 hour trip from my house and about one hour north of Milwaukee close to Sheboygan.
The brochure states that they are offering the following rates for the months of January until April from Sunday through Thursday: $135 per person in a standard guest room. It includes a two-night stay, daily continental breakfast, three-course dinner at The Horse & Plow , and 20% discount on services at Kohler Waters spa. Not that bad of a deal for someone who can really enjoy a vacation right about right now!
I did a quick search through their site and searched online for images of Kohler, WI and the resort and it looks gorgeous. Here is one that I found thanks to bldgblog.blogspot.com (see right).
I would in all honesty add this location to my list of visits. Probably not for this year since I am on budget but definitely in a year or two.
But if you, the reader, end up going or have been, I would love to hear from you and your experience at this resort and city.
