Are you and your partner looking to get away and spend some quality time together -away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Plan a romantic getaway to Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Escape to our small town setting that’s full of entertainment, dining, and activities.
First and foremost, you’ll need a relaxing place to recharge. Here are a few of the many lodging options that are available:
Currier’s Lakeview is a year-round resort motel that sits along the east shores of Rice Lake. Its themed rooms have an atmosphere that’s reminiscent of a charming family cabin. The lodging is all-inclusive and each room has a view of the lake. There’s a private swimming area with paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and pontoon boats available.
Truly relax in the clean rooms at Best Western. They offer a hot tub and full continental breakfast for your enjoyment, as well as a smoke-free cocktail lounge. Book one of their suite rooms and experience why they’ve been rated 5-stars on TripAdvisor. The hotel is perfectly situated for easy access to all that Rice Lake has to offer.
Looking for a place that’s spacious and private? Red Cedar Narrows Hideaway is a recently renovated 3 bedroom lakehouse in Rice Lake. It has an outdoor fire pit, large private deck, and direct lake access. Fish off the dock or rent a pontoon and spend a day out on the lake.
Looking for another relaxing option by the lake? Check Paul Bunyan Resort out. They offer modern cabins that are cozy and clean. They are open year round and are located on the northern border of “downtown.” They also offer RV and camping spots and access to great fishing, ATV, and snowmobile trails.
We actually already covered the best restaurants in Rice Lake, so we won’t rehash that list, but instead we’ll point out a few for a couple extra upvotes. If burgers are your thing, then we recommend The Beer Cheese Bar and Grill. Looking for breakfast or fresh bakery? Then try out the Norske Nook Restaurant and Bakery. If you’re looking for dinner and entertainment then we’d recommend dining at Lehmans Supper Club.
Now that you’re in Rice Lake, how shall you spend your time? Here are a few great options to get you started as you and your partner enjoy the weekend away from home.
Let’s be honest, dinner and a movie is the classic date. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it right? Enjoy the latest Hollywood films with some of your favorite snacks. Whether you pick something that’s action packed or a scary thriller -you and your partner can have a good time critiquing the movie once you’re done watching.
Really want to throw it back and have some old school fun? Hit up Skate City for some good ‘ol fashioned roller skating. Bring out your inner child as you hit the skate floor. Show off your moves and even stay late for cosmic late skate.
Looking to put the two of yourselves to the test? Sign-up for one of the Tactical Escape 101 escape rooms. Beat the clock to uncover and solve the puzzles and challenges of a themed room you’re in, in order to escape it. You’ll have to put your brains together to find hidden clues and unlock room elements. Are the two of you up to the challenge?
Want to do something unique and different? Check out the Museum of Woodcarving. It is the largest collection of woodcarvings in the world created by one man – 100 life-sized carvings and 400 miniatures that depict religious scenes. For a time, the entire museum was actually an exhibit at the Disney World epicenter in Florida.
There’s nothing like unplugging and getting outside with your significant other. Back to the basics is what I like to think of it as. Rice Lake is perfectly situated in the Northwoods of Wisconsin for all the outdoor entertainment you could want. From fishing and golfing to ATVing, hiking, and much more, check out all that our wilderness areas have to offer.
Live theater is a great entertainment option, especially for a romantic getaway. Whether you opt for a musical, comedy show, or other performance, it’s hard to beat the live entertainment at Northern Star Theatre Company. The theatre offers a wide range of shows as well as bistro on-site. Check out what shows are on the calendar and purchase your tickets today.
Looking for a laid back place to sit. chat, and have a few? We recommend checking out Valkyrie Brewery. The Brewery has been around for more than 21 years and has over 38 different beers of their own plus a large number of contracted beers available. They offer tours of the Brewery every Saturday.
Tour through nearly 40 buildings and get a truly historical and educational experience at the Barron County Historical Society’s Pioneer Village Museum. Discover an antique toy shop, an early railraod depot, country school, historical dentist and doctor’s office, a jail, saloon, blacksmith shop, newspaper office, the Ebenezer Lutheran Church and more. Be sure to check out their gift shop and check out the upcoming class schedule for events.
