  • We Loved the Applewood Cottage

    "My husband and I stayed at the Applewood Cottage for three nights 8/2014. As a professional event planner, we are very picky and used to 5-Star accommodations. We couldn't have been happier with this cottage. The location is perfect, blocks from Hwy 42 in between Egg Harbor, Fish Creek and Bailey's Harbor. All this while still feeling remote. The grounds are georgous, surrounded by the main farmhouse, the apple & cherry orchards, and plenty of walking trails. Most notably, the cottage is immaculate inside. We were amazed at how perfectly clean everything was. From the complete set of appliances, dishes and pots & pans to the bathroom. Not one cobweb or hint of any musty smell, as one gets used to with cottages. The best part was that we got to stay here with our dog. One might worry that a cottage that allows dogs would have pet damage, hair or smells. This cottage had no evidence of previous dog presence, other than the lovely cabinet, designed to hold dog bowls, toys treats and blankets. What a nice touch. (I bet their Dyson vacuum helps with this!) Some highlights included: The extra comfy bed, the abundant spare bedding, 2 blow up twin mattresses, fluffy new bath & beach towels, portable beach chairs, a fancy Weber grill, an outdoor fire pit, wireless internet, and the flat screen with direct TV so that my husband could watch Premier League Soccer Saturday morning! Sharon was a wonderful host and called me the day prior to our visit. She asked me to text her upon our arrival so that she could make sure everything was to our liking. My only fear in writing this review is that too many people jam up the avaiilability calendar, as my husband and I plan to go back later this Autumn."

  • Carraig Mor is the BEST!

    "Carraig Mor is by far the most lovely house we have ever rented. The house lacks for nothing. It is beautifully furnished and immaculate. Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms upstairs and a half bath downstairs. The kitchen is truly amazing. It has everything you could ever need, and it is fabulous. There is a lovely living room with a picture window looking out on the garden. And there is a cozy sitting area off the dining area. But the highlight of the house is the wrap around porch which looks out on the stunning garden. Honestly, it is like your own personal arboretum. What a very special and almost sacred place. We were lucky to be there as July turned to August, as all the flowers were in bloom. We had two dinner parties with local friends, and our guests were in awe of the beauty and lushness of the garden. A special experience."

  • Perfect place for a guys weekend

    "Great place to enjoy a weekend with the guys. The main lodge has everything you need and the other cabins are extremely spacious and clean. I will be making reservations again there in the future. I have already recommended this place to all my friends and family. The only knock on it would be the turtles in the lake stealing my stringer of fish!"

  • Family with teens

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Scheer's. The cabin was very clean and nice. It was right next to a restaurant, ice cream shop, clothes shop and the lumberjack shows. We went to all and enjoyed them! It is on Hayward Lake, which is a small lake. We also went to Round Lake, which is not far away. It is perfect for a family of four, but more so for younger children. We have two teens, and the second bedroom was small with two twin beds. No air in the second bedroom either, so we bought a large fan for the room. Other than that, it worked well and was a very pleasant stay. It also didn't hurt that the weather was perfect the entire 6 days we were there!"

Wisconsin Travel Tips

No matter what type of adventures you’re looking for, Wisconsin is sure to give you what you want. Thanks to its varied terrain, outdoor and indoor adventures are plentiful here, and its combination of populous cities and charming small towns makes it a great place for those looking to get away or immerse themselves in a new city’s culture. If you can’t decide which Wisconsin destination to visit, look into these cities:

Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is found in the southern part of the state near the border with Illinois. There are several restaurants in this town to enjoy, including family eateries such as Margot’s Restaurant, Popeye’s on Lake Geneva, Pier 290 and Clausing Barn Resaurant. A family meal at Pier 290 will sit you along the shores of Geneva Lake where you can enjoy the rustling of the waters as you munch on a delicious meal of American cuisine. Before you stop and eat at Clausing Barn Restaurant, be sure to take a tour of the 19th-century museum and walk through the grounds of Old World Wisconsin, where you can learn more about the state’s early beginnings of rural and immigrant life. Art lovers should stop by the many galleries and exhibits in the city, including Geneva Art Pottery, Maple Park Antiques and Lake Geneva Antique and Art Bazaar. At these locations, you can purchase items and browse through the works of local talent. If you’re really itching to visit the big city while staying in Lake Geneva, Chicago is only an hour and a half away by car.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee may be best-known for its delicious taps from breweries large and small alike, but this beautiful city also sits along the shores of Lake Michigan and features many attractions for everyone. Children will enjoy the Milwaukee County Zoo as they pick out their favorite animals. They’ll also love the science and technology at their fingertips with a trip to Discovery World, which can be found along the water in downtown Milwaukee. Many festivals come to Milwaukee year-round, and present a great opportunity for visitors to get out and explore the city on a deeper level. For a night of sports, you can venture out to cheer on the Milwaukee Bucks during basketball season or watch the Brewers outscore their visiting opponents. Adults can enjoy the Harley Davidson Museum, Milwaukee Theatre or the Miller Brewery Visitor Center and the Girl in the Moon Brewery Shop. Shopping is all over town and includes boutiques, brand name designers, an adorable farmers market and some of your favorite retail stores. A trip to Milwaukee will not only be the escape to the city you never knew you needed, but also a prime chance to enjoy yourself with a relaxing trip.

Madison

Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and home to several historic sites as well as the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Despite being a small, college city, there’s much to do in Madison, including it’s downtown area known as State Street as well as great shopping and dining destinations in the bustling Capitol Square. Don’t forget to pencil in a trip to the 100-year-old state capitol which towers over the city thanks to its gilded bronze statue. Daily tours are offered to the building’s visitors, where they can get a more in-depth look at the history behind the state and how it got to where it is today. Down the street a couple of blocks is Monona Terrace, a center designed by the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. He once called nearby Taliesin home and his presence is still felt in Madison and its neighboring cities. You can take a tour of the home and stand in awe at the city and lake views from the rooftop garden, the perfect place for a picnic.

Wisconsin Dells

No matter the time of year, there’s always a water adventure to be had in Wisconsin Dells. The "water park capital of the world" has indoor and outdoor water thrills which are some of the best you'll find anywhere. There are five indoor and outdoor water park attractions open to guests during the year’s warmer and cooler months, including Chula Vista, Kalahari, Mt. Olympus, Noah’s Ark and Temple of the Black Pearl at Polynesian. Noah’s Ark is the only water park in Wisconsin Dells that is open during the summer months; however, with four others to choose from, there’s still plenty of fun to be had here. Kalahari is a safari-themed attraction that includes the uphill water rollercoaster called Master Blaster, and the family raft ride, Victoria Falls.
