The Relaxing Wisconsin Farm Retreat That’s Just What You Need
Life is stressful. Days get busy, especially in the summer, and if can be easy to find time to relax and focus on yourself among the hustle and bustle of events. Lake Orchard Farm Retreat is a cozy, charming and wonderful bed and breakfast tucked along the Lake Michigan coast that offers the chance to settle in on a working farm for a few days and let all your stress melt away.
This historical, sixth-generation family farm right along the shores of Lake Michigan near Sheboygan is the absolute perfect place for a couple’s retreat, girls’ weekend or solo escape from your fast-paced, stressful day-to-day lives.
The first generation of the family to settle here did so in 1848 and their offspring have been farming the land ever since.
The barn was built by the second generation around 1900 and it's been serving them ever since. Newly renovated, it's now used as an event space, making the perfect backdrop for a wedding or other party. The bed and breakfast house was once the third generation's chicken hatchery. The family also grew apples in the orchard and still make cider today.
The farm is a sprawling complex that includes four guest rooms in the bed and breakfast along with a clubhouse game room and bar. There's also a separate cottage that can sleep 12 people in four bedrooms and has a basement rec room and bar.
It would be tough to ever grow sick of the stunning views here at the farm. It's worth setting an alarm and getting up early to enjoy the most peaceful sunrise you've ever experienced. Settle in the provided chairs and just wait for the world to light up around you.
The rooms here are exceptional and you'll find yourself never wanting to leave. They include whirlpool tubs, gas fireplace stoves, private balconies, and sleep number beds among the amenities. Reviews of the farm rave about the comforts, the cooking and the hospitality of the Wunsch family.
Depending on when you visit, there are a number of ways to get out and enjoy the gorgeous location of the farm. Enjoy walks in the woods, lake Michigan views, on site golf, farm tours or hayrides.
The clubhouse is a great place to relax and unwind. Watch a Packer game with other guests, sit down to some afternoon wine and cheese or shoot some pool. Outside, there's an on-site golf course, plenty of gorgeous nature to explore. In the summer, the farm has bikes for guests to use to explore and in the winter, there are snowshoes.
Guests rave about the food - you can head downstairs and enjoy breakfast in the company of others or have it delivered right to your room. One of the best perks of staying right on a farm - the fresh food. In the afternoon, in true Wisconsin fashion, enjoy some cheese and wine while taking in the gorgeous coast line.
This adults-only, smoke-free facility is simply the perfect place to spend a night or a week in the most peaceful, gorgeous and relaxing setting. And it's the perfect jumping off point to explore Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Kohler and more.
If you're looking for the perfect place to unwind, the Orchard Farm Lake Retreat is just waiting for you. You'll never forget the warm welcome, the spectacular hospitality and the breathtaking views.
