Little Bohemia in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin.
Cranberry cobbler martinis by a giant fireplace. Say no more.

Chateau De Pere in De Pere, Wisconsin.
The food, pumpkin martinis and live music are three good reasons to visit the Chateau De Pere Hotel. Oh yeah, the lobby fireplace is awesome.

Donny's Glidden Lodge Restaurant in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
The waterfront restaurant sits along Whitefish Bay and has a large wood-burning fireplace in the homey bar area.

The Charmant Hotel in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Brand spanking new, boasting fireplaces in the parlor and on a rooftop terrace. Oh yeah, a 24-hour Sweets Bar. Say it with me, "Road Trip".

The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
A great family destination with an elegant lobby and a massive Christmas tree which is great for pictures. Plus, a great view of Milwaukee from 20 stories up in the air. Oh yeah, the fireplace in the library-style Club Lounge.

This is It Bar in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This is where everyone knows your name with holiday themes that are unique and show tunes on Sundays.
