Labor Day Weekend Getaway In Baraboo

Labor Day weekend, Aug. 31 to Sept. 3, 2012, is four weeks away. As you enjoy this last month of summer, plan now for a relaxing Labor Day weekend retreat at the Inn at Wawanissee Point to celebrate the end of summer. We have vacancy.

Enjoy a quiet escape with us atop the Baraboo Bluffs:

  • read and snooze in the hammock
  • go birding along three miles of our cool, wooded trails
  • watch the humming birds stock up before they head south
  • see butterflies feeding on the late-summer prairie flowers

Gaze at the blue moon on Aug. 31, the second full moon of the month, from the privacy of our secluded prairie. A blue moon occurs every 2.7 years on average, so if you miss this opportunity, you’ll have to wait until July 2015 to see the next blue moon.

  • Order a s’mores kit to enjoy by the campfire as you watch the moon and stars, and the fire flies dance.

If you haven’t seen Circus World Museum’s 2012 summer performance yet, you still can through Labor Day weekend.
