Romantic Escape Sample Itinerary

Season: Fall
Day 1 - Friday

Arrive in the afternoon - check in begins at 3 p.m. Settle in your room and relax a bit.

Start your stay by unwinding with Evensong Spa’s signature Inner Journey Massage in our couples massage suite.

Prior to the massage you’ll change into comfortable robes and slippers and begin your spa experience in our relaxation room where you can sip a glass of wine in front of the fireplace.

When your massage is finished, take some time to walk the labyrinth and continue to allow yourself to unwind and be rejuvenated.

Take a short drive to Norton's restaurant, located lakeside on South Lawson Drive for cocktails and dinner. Steaks and seafood highlight the menu.

Finish off the night by taking a leisurely stroll around the lake. Sit on a bench, enjoying the view and each other's company.

Day 2 - Saturday

Head to the Little Corporal in downtown Green Lake for breakfast. This diner-style restaurant will fuel you up for a fun day ahead.

After breakfast take a stroll around Green Lake and visit some great shops, including Creative Soul, Endurance and Green Lake Mercantile. Next, take a short drive to Princeton and check out the famous Princeton Flea Market (through Oct. 12) and the shops of Water Street, which offer a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. Grab lunch at Once in a Blue Moon on Water Street in Princeton.

After lunch, take a short drive to Vines & Rushes Winery in Ripon. They offer a tasting room and tours of the vineyard.

Take some time to freshen up before dinner. Then walk over to Grey Rock restaurant (on-site) and find one of our comfortable red chairs in front of the fireplace in the Grey Rock Lounge to enjoy a one-of-a-kind martini or your favorite cocktail before dinner.

Indulge in the fine dining experience Grey Rock offers. Order a bottle of wine from our Wine Spectator award-winning wine list, share an appetizer and try one of our wonderful soups or salads before the main entree. Then, feast on our Elk Chop and the Filet Mignon, so you can sample each others. Finish the meal off with a decadent piece of dessert or a delicious ice cream drink. Up in the lounge after dinner, kick back and enjoy our live pianist.

Before turning in for the night, put on your bathing suits and take a dip in the indoor pool or soak in one of our two whirlpools during adult swim from 10 to 11 p.m.

Day 3 - Sunday

Sleep in and enjoy a leisurely morning. Share the highlights of your weekend together while enjoying the Sunroom's breakfast buffet (on site). It will leave you plenty of time to pack before check out at 11 a.m.
