BELLA VISTA SUITES
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
Park your car, and leave it: Restless mamas can easily walk to the lakeshore and the downtown from this charming hotel. In addition to the natural scenery, the historic mansions lining the lake will leave you gawking; this town is known as "The Newport of the West."
Can't stop thinking about nesting? You'll get a kick out of touring Black Point Estate, the former "cottage" of a beer baron. (Boy, did he have rooms to decorate!) Or pick up the paved path in front of the hotel; turn right and you'll catch a half mile of level terrain that will take you to 10-acre Library Park, perfect for meandering hand in hand or swimming at the beach. After a nap in your suite or some chill time at the spa, head to a festive dinner (and a different era) at The Baker House next door. Eat in one of the mansion's parlors while costumed entertainers recreate the Gilded Age. Fancy schmancy!
Details: The babymoon package offers one night in a Parkview Suite or a Lakeside Suite, an on-site couples massage, a bottle of sparkling cider, and continental breakfast delivered to your door. Package starts at $309 ($339 for a Lakeside Suite).
