The Deal

$199 for a bed-and-breakfast package for two ($299 value)

  • Five-course dinner on a moving train
  • Overnight stay in a two-bed room in a sleeper car
  • Complimentary hors d’oeuvres
  • Four drink tokens for the cash bar
  • Hot breakfast <p>

After arriving at the station between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., couples drop overnight gear in their two-bed, 1950s sleeper-car room and head to the private lounge to nibble hors d’oeuvres and sip a complimentary cocktail. Once all passengers are aboard, the train pulls away from the station, slipping into the beautiful solitude of the Northwoods for its three-hour circuit. While chugging along tracks laid down in the 19th century, guests dig into a five-course dinner, starting with a fresh salad and an appetizer of Wisconsin cheese. Soup warms stomachs before four entree options cater to vegetarians and carnivores alike, with rotating selections such as shrimp scampi, flatiron steak, and grilled salmon. After the main course, diners can tackle the dessert or temporarily defer the sugary finish for a before-bed treat. <p>

The 1918 dining car remains open after guests finish their feasts, encouraging long conversations. Farther down, a dance car lets hoofers show off their moves to classics from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s while the lounge serves up tasty cocktails. Hot breakfast the next morning tops off the excursions. <p>

Availability is limited for the remaining train rides for this year. The 2014 season has wider availability, and runs from April 3 until December 20, 2014

Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad

The Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad whisks passengers away on food-filled excursions through the scenic forests surrounding Spooner. A lineup of vintage train cars ensconces guests in antique luxury, starting with the dining car that plays host to elegant five-course dinners, leisurely brunches, and kid-friendly pizza feasts. Overnight guests sidle into the retro comfort of the 1950s sleeper car's double-decker single beds and individual climate controls. Those seeking deluxe accommodations can book a 1914 private car, complete with such railway luxuries as a full-size bed, private washrooms with showers, and emergency speakers set to play flapper-repelling waltzes. A lounge with a full bar accompanies most trips, lubricating pleasant conversation as each trip wends its way past quaint towns, shimmering streams, and towering trees.
