Valhalla Hillside Inn blends in among 90 acres of pristine northern Wisconsin wilderness. The A-frame inn, designed to resemble a Norwegian bungalow, incorporates a rustic, lodge-style aesthetic, with a stone fireplace, wood-paneled walls, and TV antennae fashioned from deer antlers. In homey guest rooms, lodgers can slide into plush robes and slippers before sipping wine and noshing on a platter of cookies and brownies. Mornings are met with the savory smells of a buffet-style, homemade breakfast. After a restful day in the lodge or an afternoon spent building the Packers offensive line in the snow, gift cards may be redeemed for dinner at the nearby Wright Place Bar and Grill, where chefs prepare pizzas, fish fry, and homemade soups.
On the outdoor deck, a five-person hot tub overlooks 90 acres of Wisconsin wilderness, where bears, deer, and wild turkeys graze and complain about the cold. To experience the scenic setting more fully, Valhalla Hillside guests can hop on snowmobiles and zoom along a popular Shawano County trail adjacent to the inn (all guests receive a $20 voucher toward snowmobile tours). Visitors can hit the powdered slopes at Granite Peak ski resort, located less than 35 miles away or seek indoor entertainment at several nearby casinos, such as Mohican North Star Bingo and Casino, which is accessible via complimentary inn shuttle.
