Right now, typical summer travel is looking a little different than before, with more people staying close to home and choosing smaller properties. We’re a small boutique hotel located in the small, yet charming town of Wausau. If you’re looking for one of the most romantic getaways in Wisconsin, you’ve found it. The ambiance of our luxury Inn is perfect for those romantic moments and special occasions you may have coming up, and Wausau offers a delightful change of pace and scenery.
Wausau is pretty easy to get to from most parts of Wisconsin, and even Minnesota. We’re about 4 hours from Chicago, 3 hours away from Milwaukee and Minneapolis/St. Paul, 2 hours from Madison, and just 90 minutes from Green Bay and Door County. One relatively short drive, and all of the incredible sights and sounds of Wausau, not to mention one of the most romantic getaways in Wisconsin, will be waiting for you.

What Makes us One of the Most Romantic Getaways in Wisconsin?
So, by now you might be asking yourself just what is it that makes Wausau, and the Stewart Inn, in particular, one of the best romantic getaways in Wisconsin? Well, we think the answer is pretty simple. We’re a small, historic Inn offering an incomparable lodging experience, and we’re hyper-focused on ensuring our guests have the best experience possible. Bed and Breakfasts are romantic by design, but few others offer the same excellent level of service and accommodations as The Stewart Inn.
Our boutique hotel is situated inside a beautifully restored 1906 Prairie-style home that was originally designed by George Maher, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. Once you step through our doors, you’ll be transported back in time through our dedication to the preservation of the Arts and Crafts style of this home. The romantic and historic ambiance of the interior space is accentuated by original chandeliers, sconces, decorative fireplaces, and stained glass windows.
Inside our luxuriously appointed guest rooms, you can expect to find the same – if not better – amenities as you’d find at a 5-star hotel. Set the mood with our Sonos sound systems in each room, curl up in front of the gas-lit fireplace, release the tension in our steam showers, order off our pillow menu, and let the romance of your surroundings sweep you off your feet. Combine all of this luxury and romantic ambiance with a gourmet, multi-course breakfast made from scratch in our kitchen daily, and you have quite possibly one of the most perfect romantic getaways in Wisconsin.
Location, Location, Location!
Though luxurious and romantic accommodations are important when considering various romantic getaways in Wisconsin, so too, is location. Though we understand the urge to curl up and tune out the world for a few days, you’re probably going to need someplace delicious to eat, at the very least. And you may even want a location that offers a few fun things to do, too. Fortunately, we offer both!
Our boutique hotel is situated in downtown Wausau’s vibrant river district. Everything you could possibly want or need, including some of the town’s best restaurants and top attractions, are within an easy 5-block walk from our Inn. The food scene in Wausau is surprising, and something you’d expect from a much larger city, along with some charming places to grab a cocktail and enjoy a traditional date night. It’s a vibrant arts city, with several incredible museums and a world-class theater, great shops to explore, great parks, and a beautiful historic district.
For the couple that loves to play and get adventurous, there’s plenty of that here, too. Wausau is home to Granite Peak Ski Area, the best ski resort in Wisconsin, an Olympic qualifying kayaking and canoeing course, has a class “B” biking rating, and offers plenty of opportunities for hiking and enjoying the scenic outdoors. Mostly, Wausau is a great place to get away from the daily grind, to relax, and to spend time connecting with the people you love.
