A Summer Getaway to Remember in Kohler, WI

During our last post, we talked about some great events that were happening in Sheboygan, but there is still so much fun to be had in the surrounding areas! For example, Kohler, which is a mere ten minutes away from us here at Inn on Hillwind, has quite a few events lined up for the latter half of the month.  This would be the perfect time to take that little getaway that you’ve been talking about for the past few months.

If you consider yourself a foodie, or if you’re simply interested in taking in some of what makes Kohler such a great place to be, make your way out this way on Thursday July 25, 2013. The Wisconsin Room Farm-to-Table Series: BBQ on the Patio event will be held on this day, beginning at 6pm at The Wisconsin Room Restaurant. Here, you’ll be able to sit back and relax as they enjoy some local favorites fresh off the grill. You’ll even get a chance to speak with the chefs as they prepare mouth-watering dishes such as barbequed ribs, smoked chicken, house-made brat patty sliders, grilled pineapple and bacon wrapped asparagus. Don’t forget to try some of our favorite comfort foods, like baked cheddar ale mac and cheese and some delicious peach cobbler!

The price of the event runs at $38 per person plus tax and gratuity and guests are encouraged to wear their resort casual attire. Call The Wisconsin Room today to make your reservations!

After you’ve been well fed, gear up for a weekend of shopping! The Shops at Woodlake Kohler Summer Sidewalk Sale will be held from Friday July 26th to Sunday July 28th, where shoppers can expect to find savings of 25-75% on selection fashions, furnishings and more. The sales take place on Friday from 10am-6pm, Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-5pm so you ‘ll have plenty of time to browse and see what catches your eye. Check out all of the great deals from a variety of stores, such as Intentions, Kohler Golf Academy Winter Studio, Yoga on the Lake, Kohler Gardener, Wisconsin Trader and much more!

Because these events are both so close to the Inn on Hillwind, there’s no better place to rest your head between the fun. There are still rooms available but be sure to book your reservation soon, as space is bound to fill up quickly! We look forward to seeing you soon!



Summer Events to Look Forward to in Sheboygan, WI!

While there are of course a ton of great activities to enjoy during the cooler months here in Sheboygan, there’s something really special about spending time here during the summer. For one thing, there are always plenty of family-friendly events going on around town, so don’t think that just because the holiday celebrations end in a few days that the fun stops there. In fact, there are two amazing festivals coming up in just a little over a week on Saturday, July 13, 2013.

First off, we have the Mill Street Festival, known for being the largest festival in the historic town of Plymouth. Due to the celebration, you should make note that Mill Street will be closed to vehicles on Saturday from 9a.m. to 4p.m. as friends and family get together for live music and entertainment. However, seeing as the event is a mere six minute drive from the Inn on Hillwind, our guests should have no problem getting there early and finding parking somewhere nearby. Greeted with over 100 vendors and merchants with delicious local food and drinks for you to enjoy, as well as a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids, this is seriously one event you don’t want to miss out on!

Another event to consider during your stay here would be the Town of Sheboygan Lions Fest, which is also being held on Saturday, July 13th. Being held at the Lions Club, all proceeds for this festival go towards the development of the town Firehouse Park.  Come enjoy burgers, brats and beer as you listen to live performances from a few great bands, including Copper Box.

The 4th of July celebrations around town may be short lived as we all return to work on Friday, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the summer fun has to end. Give yourself something to look forward to in the near future; book a stay with us at the Inn on Hillwind and enjoy the Sheboygan summer festivities!
