Relaxing in a luxurious suite with a fireplace and a whirlpool tub for two may be incentive enough for you to book now at Castle in the Country for a magical winter getaway, but here’s some of our suggestions for romantic things to do in Michigan while visiting our Allegan Bed and Breakfast.
A favorite activity for guests when the snow starts to fall is to venture out into our Enchanted Forest and explore the three miles worth of trails. Don’t hesitate at the idea of walking through the freshly fallen snow since we’ll provide snowshoes to make your walk even more of an adventure! Even if you’ve never tried snowshoeing before, we’re positive you’ll get the hang of it in no time. We have a variety of sizes, making it easy for you to find the right fit to strap on over your own boots and once you do, the trails await! Now that the trees and bushes have shed their leaves for the winter, you’ll have no trouble spotting the deer, squirrels, and other wildlife that call our property home.
After exploring the trails, share a bottle of wine or a steaming mug of hot cocoa in front of our outdoor fireplace under the Iron Gazebo. Tucked up beside the Castle Keep to protect you from the wind, the outdoor fireplace will provide the perfect balance of warmth and ambiance to let you de-stress, unwind, and reconnect with each other.
When the snow starts to blanket our 65 acres let go of the “responsible working adult” that you arrived as and revisit the childhood activities you haven’t enjoyed in years. The best thing about “lake-effect” snow is that it makes great packing snow! Have a snowball fight with your special someone, or grab one of the sleds we’ll provide and take an exhilarating ride down the hill. For those with a creative bent, why not build your own snowman and snowwoman? This happy couple appeared one morning last winter and greeted our guests as they walked between the Castle and the Castle Keep.
Once you’ve worn yourselves out…or need to thaw out, head back up to your luxurious Whirlpool and Fireplace Suite at our Bed and Breakfast in Michigan and relax in front of your Flat Screen TV with a great DVD and a bag of popcorn, or treat yourselves to a dessert brought back from one of the Best of the Best local restaurants.
On your romantic Winter getaway the snow may be intimidating at first, but here at Castle in the Country, we know that it can provide some of the best ways to relax, have fun, stir-up romance, and escape the winter ordinary for an extraordinary, memory-filled getaway.
