Weekend Getaway in Rhinelander, WI

by Gabrielle Loomis

Before Labor Day weekend we drove to Rhinelander, WI for a quick weekend getaway. We had such a relaxing and fun time that I wanted to do a little recap about our trip.

We stayed at the Holiday Acres Resort. There you have the option to stay at a cottage or a lodge room. We stayed at a quaint cottage that had a fully equipped kitchen. We like staying in places that have full kitchens because it’s easier when you have children and want to store all of their snacks.

We loved that the resort property had a lot to offer: indoor heated pool, petting zoo, horseback riding, boat rentals, and an excellent restaurant with a delicious Sunday Brunch! We highly recommend the Sunday Brunch. It was only $15.99 per person, all you can eat!!

Our weekend getaway was just what we needed to end the summer on a high note. It was relaxing, fun, perfect to unplug, and experience nature.

Our cottage came with a small 8-foot boat that we used every day to go fishing and watch the sunset. The kids loved trying to catch fish from the boat, and Rapha now knows how to cast with his Ninja Turtles fishing pole :).

Our kids experienced new things on that trip. They went mini-golfing and horseback riding with us for the first time. We rode horses in the Holiday Acres property which is attached to the petting zoo. That was probably one of our favorite things we did. The kids loved being on a “horsey.”

Our resort wasn’t too far away from downtown Rhinelander, restaurants, and coffee shops. That enabled us to drive and explore the area with the kids.

Our trip lasted three days and two nights. I think that was the right amount of time to scape on a little getaway.

We loved staying at the Holiday Acres and would like to go back in the winter to go cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments if you have ever been there before!
