I surprised my husband with a weekend at the Baker House for his birthday. The house is amazing, as is the service of the staff. We stayed in the Champagne suite, which I chose because of the amazing shower in the bathroom. The room itself is very nicely appointed, although it would have been nice to have some more sitting areas besides the bed. We stayed during the Winter Festival weekend. Even though the house itself was busy, we always had a table ready in the restaurant and it never felt overly crowded. Also, the common areas for the hotel guests were really nice and comfortable-amazing views of the lake. If you can, stay over on a Saturday night. Their champagne brunch on Sundays is literally the most sumptuous brunch I have ever seen! Seriously, I wish I would have fasted the day before so I could have done justice to everything they offered.
Complimentary champagne when you check in, wonderful butler service and they helped us dig our car out when we left on Sunday morning in the middle of a blizzard-really wonderful! It is quite pricey so I'm not sure we will ever stay there again, but we might make the trip to Kenosha for brunch.
