Loving This New Kind of Honeymoon If you’re one of those who said “yes” over the holidays or Valentine’s Day, we have some ideas for an adventure honeymoon, a trend that’s on the rise and that we happen to love. [caption id="attachment_1783" align="alignnone" width="300"] She Said Yes![/caption]
The mere mention of the term “bed and breakfast” often elicits thoughts of “romance and relaxation,” meaning ideal for proposals, elopements, small wedding ceremonies, anniversaries, and vow renewals. But for honeymoons, more and more couples are booking adventure getaways to celebrate this most happy moment in their lives. [caption id="attachment_1784" align="alignleft" width="300"] Justin Trails Resort Paul Bunyan Cabin[/caption] If you’re a twosome with your heart set on an active honeymoon, here are four Wisconsin inns we think you’ll fall in love with, starting with Justin Trails Resort in Sparta. This inn calls a 200-acre parcel of rolling hills home. You can play disc golf on their course, hike, bike the nearby Elroy-Sparta trail, and tour the farm. Oh, one more thing, they “upscaled” a barn into an elegant wedding venue, in case you’re still deciding where to say your “I do’s.” Canyon Road B&B in Turtle Lake is tucked back in the woods and sits on a sparkling little lake. Fish off the pier, help yourself to a canoe, and hike and golf in the area to your heart’s content. A nice handful of winery and brewery tours in the area could make for an enjoyable day itinerary too. [caption id="attachment_1785" align="alignright" width="300"] Canyon Road Inn Binoculars[/caption] Inn at Pinewood in Eagle River is that quintessential Wisconsin northwoods destination. This log cabin-style resort, originally built in the 1930s as a hunting and fishing lodge, is situated on a private lake so do a little kayaking, swimming, and, of course, fishing. Devote one day to hiking and biking the Nicolet National Forest, just two miles from inn. [caption id="attachment_1786" align="alignnone" width="300"] Inn at Pinewood in Eagle River, WI[/caption] Our fourth recommendation is Blacksmith Inn On the Shore on the Shore in Door County. [caption id="attachment_1789" align="alignright" width="300"] Blacksmith Inn On the Shore Breakfast on the Balcony[/caption] As the name states, it’s located right on the shore of Lake Michigan in a little burg known as Baileys Harbor. This area of the state is made for adventures, like hiking the Ridges Sanctuary nature preserve, biking the scenic trails, doing a little lighthouse sightseeing, and kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and sailing on the big lake.

Relaxation and romance allowed after that much adventure! The B&B's in the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association would love to help you create that unique experience. A great reason to plan a B&B getaway, where innkeepers are your ultimate concierge to all things local. Another important item to point out, WBBA members are licensed, inspected and insured. So rest assured, you will get a good night's sleep when you stay at a WBBA B&B, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated the next morning. Are you ready to Seek the Unique?
