A winter in the woods getaway to Gateway Lodge in Cook Forest is like stepping into a snow-laden wonderland: crisp cold mornings, the crunch of snow in each step, and a stillness in the air.

Snuggle up in a Fireside Suite with a jetted hot tub and enjoy breakfast delivered every morning. Indulge in a three-course “Winter in the Woods” holiday dinner on Saturday, featuring award-winning wine pairings and live entertainment. Immerse yourself in the festive spirit with Christmas music performed by Sandi & Jerry Rectenwald on December 9th. If staying the following weekend, on December 16th, classical guitarist Robert Gardner will add enchanting melodies to your evening.

Outside, the evergreens are lit and inside Christmas trees are in every corner. Cozy up to a crackling fire in our stone hearth. And receive a Santa-worthy welcome with cookies and peppermint milk inside your room upon arrival.
