Reviewed By Dragontail281 - Salem, Wisconsin

We recently had our wedding reception here. The venue has a great vintage vibe. It reminds us of the resort from the movie "Dirty Dancing". The entire event was great and our guest had a great time. The golf course is well maintained, and although it has some very challenging holes, anyone from beginner to pro can have a fun time playing.

Wilmot Mountain

Currently closed for Winter Operations. Please check out website for summer events. Since 1938, Wilmot Mountain has enchanted families as one of the Midwest’s premier Winter destinations for snowsport activities. Just a short drive away from Chicago and Milwaukee, they have made skiing, snowboarding, and tubing an easy, accessible, affordable and fun trip for the whole family. With the recent Vail Purchase, Wilmot Mountain is undergoing a $13.2 million renovation. This renovation includes new lifts, a base area transformation, an expanded state-of-the-art snowmaking system, a new kid's ski and snowboard school with an enhanced beginner's area, and a new terrain park with high speed rope tow. Having converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Wilmot Mountain is truly the place where Epic begins.

Good ski spot close to Chicago.

-Quick (about hour) drive from downtown Chicago.
-Ski runs are short, but fun and interesting. There are some good areas for jumps and tricks as well.
-Rental equipment was a bit old and could use an update. The rental process is also kind of weird. They just tell you to pick out your own boots and you leave them when you’re done—nobody confirms that they’re returned.
-The food at the cafeteria was surprisingly good—pizza was delicious.
-There are a couple bars and they had good live music while we were there.
-All the staff were friendly.

Will definitely go back next time I want a quick ski trip in the area.

Lester's Bison Farm

Reviewed By L M - Chicago, Illinois

I can't say enough about how wonderful Lester is to chat with and the meat is beyond imaginable! I'm not a huge red meat fan, but that all changed after finding Lester's on a bike ride training in southern wisconsin!!! My family and now extended family have been going since 2009/2010 and I even had my parents ship meat to me while living in AZ! Now I make everything with bison and it's much healthier and has amazing flavor all on it's own! It's great to drive out to the farm and see these amazing animals grazing free but also convenient that he travels to farmers markets around the area! Don't waste anymore time and go visit Lester's!!! :)

We went Sunday right at ten am to go apple picking. There was only five rows (each only approximately half picked already) and were able to pick two varieties of apples- honey crisp and gala. The honey crisp were extremely large but very tasty. The gala were reasonable size but not ripe yet. It took us ten minutes to fill our two bags (one small one large). It was rather disappointing for our "day at the orchard". We put the apples in the car and decided to check out the activities area, however we were very disappointed that it was 15$ per person, even adults who wouldn't be "riding" anything. It seemed extremely steep and we chose to just stay in the free area (fun teeter tatter) and have a lemonade and cheese curds (both very good!) We then headed to the market were we tried a few things. We found the zucchini bread to be very dry when we got home. I will choose other apple orchards in the future this did not deliver the apple picking experience we were looking for and the activities area was very expensive. We were also disappointed by the number of people who were smoking on the grounds after it being marked a smoke free environment.

I took my 4yr. Daughter here in March and it was a quite little park to walk around. It did have a little beach area and because it was march and a week day there wasn't really anyone at the park so we went to the beach and made a sandcastle. She had fun and I enjoyed the peace and view.
