3 Reasons Why a Night at a B&B is the Perfect Valentine’s Gift for Your Guy

Happy Valentine's Day_canstockphoto521583

Happy Valentine’s Day

Are you having a difficult time choosing that perfect Valentine’s gift for your guy?  I’m here to tell you a night at a B&B is the perfect Valetine’s Gift for your guy.  Choosing a gift for the love of your life can be challenging sometimes.  If you’re like me you feel you want to get him something extra special to show how much he means to you and you appreciate all he does for you.  Somehow that stuffed animal just doesn’t send that message. And, I don’t know about your guy, but mine would not appreciate having flowers delivered to his office, that’s not how he rolls.  I would most certainly be in the dog house for that maneuver!  So why a night at a B&B?  Let me give you three reasons:

  1. A quiet place for you to spend some quality time together.  One of the first things you notice about a B&B is the quietness. Many B&B’s don’t accept young children, so you don’t have to worry about the hockey or basketball team running up and down the hall, slamming the doors as they come and go, which is what we are likely to find at a hotel during the month of February here in the Northwoods.  Your guy will love having you all to himself, with no interruptions.
  2. A new adventure.  If you’ve never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before, this will be the perfect time to explore one.  If you’ve already enjoyed staying at B&B, try to find a new one so you can have a different experience than what you’ve had in the past. Each Bed & Breakfast is unique, no two are created equally, just like their owners!  If you have a B&B the both of you absolutely love going to, then by all means, make that reservation.  I’m sure the innkeeper will be pleased as punch to have you as a repeat guest.  Creating memories just the two of you to share will make this Valentine’s gift one your guy will never forget.
  3. Breakfast in bed.  Who doesn’t enjoy having a lazy morning, lingering in bed a little too long, enjoying each other’s company?  Many B&B’s offer room service so you can have breakfast in your jammies just the two of you.  Again, your guy will feel pampered (in a guy sort of way) and be able to spend quality time with you.  Isn’t that what we all crave, just some intimate moments with the love of our life?

So why not mix things up a little bit this year for Valentine’s Day?  You can take the initiative to make the reservations and surprise your guy with one of the best Valentine’s gifts he’s ever received!

As usual, we hope to greet you soon as one of our guests here at Inn on Lake Wissota!  Happy Valentine’s Day!

5 reasons to hold your team building event in Chippewa Falls

Chippewa Falls, geographically speaking, is very blessed to sit on the banks of the Chippewa River.  The river has lent itself to a rich and varied history for the city.  The city was built amidst the logging industry followed by shoe factories, a woolen mill company, banking, supercomputing, and we can’t forget to mention a world renowned brewery!  All of these business required team work and helped create a vibrant community that has stood the test of time.  Natural resources abound as well.  All of these elements come together to help you develop a team building event your group will never forget.  A team building retreat in Chippewa Falls will help your teammates connect, develop new ways to communicate which helps foster creativity and productivity.

Team building activities

Consider taking a tour

Tours can offer interesting insights to a community, how it was built, the businesses and industries that contributed to it’s growth.  The Chippewa Falls Museum of Industry and Technology tells the stories the story of important, unique, and groundbreaking innovations in industry and technology that were developed in the Chippewa Valley.

The Cook-Rutledge Museum is a truly unique 1887 restored and furnished lumber baron’s home. It is one of the finest remaining examples of High Victorian Italianate architecture in Wisconsin. Visitors to the stately, red brick home will be awed by 19th century extravagance.

The Leinenkugel’s Brewery has been brewing beer in Chippewa Falls for more than 150 years.  A tour of the brewery offers visitors a chance to sample their beer, tour the brewery and shop at the Lodge.  We recommend taking the Family Tour.  The tour is delivered by one of the Leinenkugel family members! Leinie’s fans can join Dick, John, or Matt Leinenkugel as they guide them around the brewery, sip fantastic beer, partake in cheese pairings, and take home a gift.

Outdoor activities

Hiking and walking opportunities abound in Chippewa Falls.  The Lake Wissota State Park has more than 18 miles of hiking trails.  There are two, self-guided, scenic, nature trails.  Downtown Chippewa Falls has experienced some wonderful revitalization over the past several years, but is still maintains it’s historical vibe.  The Chippewa Falls Walking Tour gives visitors a chance to take a self-guided tour of downtown Chippewa Falls and learn about our history and see beautiful, historic homes and buildings.  The Old Abe State trail is located just 1/2 mile from Inn on Lake Wissota, a 19.5-mile abandoned railroad grade connecting two State Parks, from Chippewa Falls to Cornell, Wisconsin. The trail is flat and easy going.

Community Service

A small community service project can give your team an chance to connect on another level unavailable in the workplace.  When working towards a common altruistic cause co-workers are able to get to know one another outside the workplace.  This fosters a different kind of bond than that in the office.  Community service projects offer a win-win situation for both the employees and the organization benefiting from the volunteer work.  Employees feel good for contributing to a needy organization and the non-profit is able to continue serving it’s mission.  There are plenty of non-profits in Chippewa Falls who would be grateful for whatever time you are able to give.  From packing weekend backpack meals for school kids or serving a meal at Ruby’s pantry, just to mention a couple, there’s a volunteer project in the Chippewa Falls community to fit your team building event.

Lodging at a B&B

An overnight stay at a Bed & Breakfast can extend the team building experience for your group.  Usually there is a common area large enough for a small team of 4-10 members to gather, creating a relaxed atmosphere for further bonding and communication.  The team leader has another opportunity to build on developing company objectives and goals.  Encouraging employees to give their input on how to work towards those company objectives helps increase motivation and productivity in the workplace.

A team building event booked during our off-season (November through Mid-May) gives your team an opportunity for an earlier check-in and later check-out, as most B&B’s in Wisconsin are not as busy this time of year.  The personalized service you’ll receive and beautiful breakfast will help facilitate that special experience you’re trying to provide to your team mates to show them how important they are to the team and you appreciate all they do.

We hope to greet you and your team members soon at Inn on Lake Wissota.
