Hello, my friends. I hope you’re still enjoying a nice holiday break. We are in the middle of packing up our apartment, preparing to move for NYE! So, I think it goes without saying, I’m happy to relive our beautiful weekend in Kohler, Wisconsin.
My parents, husband and I stayed at the Sandhill Cabin which is owned by The American Club. However, it is five miles away from The American Club’s lodge. This was not a problem at all for us, since we had a car and the weather was mild.
The cabin itself is gorgeous. You arrive off of a county road and then take a scenic drive down a dirt road until you reach the parking area for the cabin. Even at this point, you can hardly see the cabin itself. A short walk up a path lit by lanterns, and the red-roofed cabin is your new home for a few days. Although it looks small, it can sleep up to six people, and one sweet yorkie-poo.
You walk in to a beautiful, rustic wood paneled entry opening up into the living and dining rooms, with the kitchen on the left side. The walk around porch makes you instantly feel welcome, too.
We spent most of our time camped out on the tufted leather couch, in front of the gas fireplace, with movies on the HD flatscreen, with DirecTV. While the cabin also came with wireless internet, we all limited our time spent online, and I didn’t open my laptop once, a Christmas miracle according to my husband. 😉
The kitchen had absolutely everything we could need, including tinfoil and dog bowls. It was perfect for chilling the champagne and fixing up appetizers.
Upstairs is a lofted bedroom with a king size bed, but no bathroom. The bathroom for this room is on the first floor and includes a gorgeous slate shower with a rain shower head (it’s Kohler, what else can you expect?)
The lower level is practically an apartment! It includes a full-size washer and dryer, a huge bathroom with a clawfoot tub and walk-in shower, a sitting area with a pull-out sleeper, and two double beds.
Outside is a pond, a fire pit, a porch swing, and an area to grill. You’re also surrounded by woods, so you can occasionally peep a wild turkey or stray cat roaming around. They were all to fast for me to capture on film though!
When we weren’t in the cabin, I didn’t take many pictures. On Christmas Eve we had a wonderful dinner at The Immigrant. They had a special tasting menu that was delicious. After opening presents on Christmas, we enjoyed brunch at The Wisconsin Room. We were all fans of the chocolate peppermint macarons and I was partial to the bottomless mimosas.
I almost forgot to tell you about this cute little house, right out front. Inside is a sauna, full bath, and round dining table. It was my husband’s go-to spot each morning.
Check-in and out was easy, as was travel between the cabin and the lodge. We signed the guestbook and are already dreaming about when we can return. I hope you had a great holiday weekend!
