This Top-Rated Midwest Vacation Destination Is Like Heaven For Nature-Loving Couples

If you're in the Midwest (or plan to be soon) and would love to enjoy a quick romantic getaway, consider renting a cabin at a couples-only resort in Indiana. Serenity Springs in La Porte is ideal for those who want to connect with nature and each other. La Porte is just a short drive from Michigan City, South Bend, Valparaiso, and Chicago in Northwestern Indiana. 

With more than 30 romantic cabins on 85 acres in the woods, this award-winning resort offers a peaceful escape from life's distractions. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, it features a private lake where guests can relax and feed the ducks. The cabins were designed with privacy and romance in mind, from soothing amenities to luxurious services to sweet and spicy add-on options. Whether you want to spend time together in nature or rekindle your relationship, this Midwest getaway could be what you've been looking for.

Romantic cabins with unique amenities

Different cabins are available, such as channel view, lakefront, and pond view. Each cabin is uniquely designed with special features catering to guests' preferences. You can stay in cabins with heart-shaped sunken tubs, massage chairs, lofts, or enclosed back porches. During winter, guests can opt for cabins with heated floors to make their stay even cozier. All cabins have a fireplace, a sunken whirlpool tub for two, and a signature "butler door" for private deliveries. You'll get juices, a snack basket, and a breakfast basket to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The establishment can even accommodate special dietary needs.

You can choose from romantic add-on packages to infuse extra romance into your stay. For instance, the Mimosa Wrap-up package includes two plush robes, a Yankee Jar Candle, a therapeutic heated neck wrap, a bottle of Mimosa, and orange chocolate. The Rose Petal Package includes champagne, gourmet chocolates, a scented bubble bath, silk rose petals, candles, and other surprises. These packages are a great way to personalize your experience and create lasting memories in this nature-infused retreat. One thing the cabins do not have is Wi-Fi. This is intentional, as the resort hopes to encourage couples to put devices away and focus on each other.

If you're looking for things to do, there are plenty of nearby attractions you can check out. You can visit the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, which has beautiful beaches, forests, and wetlands.
