Weekend getaway suggestions for October

Any suggestions for a relaxing weekend get away for a couple in their 30's in October on a budget? Looking for a nice place to stay where we can relax and maybe do a little hiking or biking. It's for an anniversary trip. Would prefer to not be in a big city and focusing on south of highway 29. Would appreciate any suggestions!

If you went a little north of Hwy 29 you could be in Door County!

If you want biking I suggest Mauston or Tomah, north of the Dells. There are many great bike trails including the Elroy Sparta and I think October is cranberry harvesting time.

The Horicon Marsh area would be another possibility, either Horicon, Mayville or Waupun. Then there's the western part of the state, Mineral Point, New Glarus, Monroe, etc.

New Glarus and the surrounding communities would be perfect with the perfect mix of scenic beauty, tons of bike trails, great dining, and a nice quiet un city atmosphere. www.swisstown.com (Mount Horeb and Monroe are great nearby communities worth checking out too). For sights there's Cave of the Mounds and New Glarus Brewery and more.

I agree with hatchpal, New Glarus & the SW part of WI would be great that time of year.

Check out mineralpoint.com

For you I'd recommend any of these:

Cothren Cabin

Mineral Point Hotel

Brewery Creek Inn

All are exceptional & it is truly a beautiful town for walking. Has a couple of good restaurants as well. Biking/ATV trail through town. Be sure to check out Brewery Creek Pottery on the outskirts of town. I've spent months in this town for business and love it.
