In B.C. times, you might consider a romantic grownup getaway anywhere in the world.  We are not talking B.C. like before Christ, I am talking about a much more current B.C. times.  You know, just like a year ago, we are referring to “Before Covid”.  But today’s life is different.  Many of us have been cooped up in our homes, trying very hard to be good, stop the spread, wear our masks.  And we are itching for a bit of normalcy.  Remember when we would travel?  Remember a grownup getaway with that special someone?  Doesn’t that sound awesome right now?  Well, you can book that special getaway now.  Yes, that’s right.  We are talking about a romantic grownup getaway in Wisconsin Dells.  Let us tell you why a romantic grown up getaway in Wisconsin Dells is the perfect solution for your travel year long.

1. Romantic, rustic cabins to stay in

Don’t stay in a traditional hotel where you are sharing the hallways and elevators with strangers.  In today’s world, we want to travel and we want to stay safe.  By booking a romantic rustic cabin to stay in, as you come and go, you drive directly to your rented cabin and avoid the crowded lobbies with crowded elevators.  With the cabins having their own front doors, you can easily go right from car to front door without encountering anybody outside your family. 

At My Friends Cabin you can book a 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin that includes a full kitchen.  Whether you decide to take your meals in and cook in your very own kitchen (that comes equipped with cooking utensils, plates, glasses and pots and pans), or enjoy a local restaurant, it’s nice to know you don’t have to leave your very own cabin to grab a bite to eat.

5. Winter sports

Even though my idea of an ideal Winter day in Wisconsin Dells is to curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace with my favorite beverage, my significant other often wants to get up and going to do other things.  Outdoor, sport things.  And, once he convinces me to set down my book and go, I am always glad I listened to him.  Besides, I know when we stay at My Friends Cabin my book and that beautiful fireplace will be there to warm me when we return.  There is so much to do in Wisconsin Dells, year around!  From cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, tubing, ice fishing, hiking, and sledding you can find it all in Wisconsin Dells!

6. Gambling good time

No matter the time of year, we enjoy going to Ho-Chunk when we visit Wisconsin Dells.  During Covid, we have felt very safe here, as everyone is masked up and the employees do a good job of wiping down the machines after we have played.  It is always nice and warm inside Ho-Chunk Gaming!  A fun venue no matter what the weather is outside.

9. Swimming

Being the waterpark capital of the world, don’t forget to pack your swim suit!  And no, you don’t have to worry about swimming outdoors in Winter for your romantic grownup getaway.  There are indoor water parks sprinkled around Wisconsin Dells.

Indoor water parks in the area include Chula Vista, Great Wolf Lodge, Kalahari, Mount Olympus to name a few.

While staying at My Friends Cabin you can enjoy the indoor pool which includes slides and a basketball hoop.  The kids do not need to know you went down water slides during your stay!  In addition, your pool towels are included in your cabin stay!  Just pack your suit!  We have been pleasantly surprised whenever we stay at My Friends Cabin how quiet the pool is in the evenings.  The indoor pool is open until 11 PM and very often we are the only ones in it!  (I almost do not want to tell you this as it might start to get crowded!  Shhhh…..it’s our secret!)

10. Relaxation and one on one time away from the rest of the world!

Regardless of what relaxation looks like to you, you will find it in Wisconsin Dells.  Some of our favorite things to do in our Grownup getaway we have shared with you here. 

From bringing board games to play in our cabin in the evenings, to watching the sunset from our picture windows that overlook the golf course at My Friends Cabin, we find the small things are just as enjoyable as the big adventurous things to do in Wisconsin Dells.  We enjoy lunches at Mulligans while we watch the skiers come down the hill at Christmas Mountain Resort (My Friend’s cabin).  Snuggling up with my significant other in front of the fireplace with a cold beverage (for me that is Diet Pepsi), and watching a movie in front of the fire makes me return to the North Woods of Wisconsin dells time and  time again.

People sometimes ask why we return to Wisconsin Dells so frequently….and there are so many reasons listed right here!  However, for us, it is about an hour from home and yet we feel like we have traveled somewhere far away.  A quieter, gentler, easier way of life…..much changed from the demands of jobs and stress of home life.  It is good to get away.  To reconnect and come back recharged.
