This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Getaways for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Last weekend Chris and I got the itch to leave the city for the weekend so we packed an overnight bag and headed to a cute little resort we found on Groupon Getaways known as the Heidel House in Green Lake, Wisconsin.
We arrived late Friday night and the first thing I wanted to do was get a basket of cheese curds and a Spotted Cow beer- when in Rome, you know? So, we dropped off our bags in the room and headed right down to the hotel's restaurant, The Boathouse Pub. And I am not lying when I say this place had the best cheese curds I have ever tasted. I'm not sure what the batter was exactly, but it was amazing.
Besides the cheese curds, I also ordered an ahi tuna sandwich which was seasoned to perfection and seared just right. My mouth is watering just looking at these photos right now. I had no idea Green Lake, Wisconsin was such a culinary hot spot!
After stuffing our faces at dinner, both Chris and I fell into blissful food comas for the rest of the night. Although if I'm being truthful, I'll admit I snacked on a few of the chocolate dipped strawberries that room-service left for us before I went to bed.
Speaking of service at the hotel, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we had nothing but awesome experiences at the Heidel House. Everyone was super friendly and more than willing to help us out or answer any of our questions.
They also knew how to make a killer Bloody Mary, which we all know is important to me. When we woke up Saturday morning, we went to the Sun Room restaurant in the main area of the hotel for brunch. We snacked on eggs and bacon while we looked out onto the massive lake. It was pretty interesting to see all of the ice fisherman with their huts (is that what you call the little houses?) set up all over the lake. The people in Wisconsin don't mess around when it comes to ice fishing.
After breakfast, we decided to jump into the car explore the area of Green Lake. We found the cutest antique stores, great little bars, and my favorite thing of all- we found the Amish!
I can't explain my love/fascination for the Amish culture in just one post so I'm going to have to break this up into two posts- because yes, my love runs that deep.
I'm short on time so I'll wrap this up now, but don't you worry "Exploring Wisconsin part II #MyGrouponGetaway" is coming your way!
