Best Midwest Places to Get Snowed In
Wisconsin Dells: Right for romance
The real world can't get past the front gate of Sundara Inn and Spa. The resort, named for the Sanskrit word for "beautiful," hides among tall pines on a winding side road outside Wisconsin Dells. You'll be reminded how great a show sunlight, fire and grazing deer put on when you have nowhere else to be.
Float through a seamless series of hot tubs, steam rooms and heated towels. Flute music and earthy oil scents fill the halls. Fireplaces radiate from seemingly every corner, leaving no tension unmelted. Privacy is as complete as you want to make it. You can eat breakfast in the quiet atrium, but there's always room service in the 26 suites and 12 villas.
Couples can take massages in the candlelit "Spa Together" room, featuring two massage tables, two hydrotherapy tubs and yet another fireplace. Waiters carry champagne to couples at the poolside fire bowl. And while Sundara provides free chauffeur service to area entertainment, you might not choose to leave. From $269.
