There’s nothing like planning a romantic getaway in the middle of fall and winter. When we say “getaway”, we typically mean getting out of the city or our neighborhood and venturing to a secluded destination for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle this fall/winter, learn about some of the amazing things to do at Oakwood Resort on Lake Wawasee and start planning your romantic getaway in Indiana today!

See Nature at Its Best

As much as everyone loves Lake Wawasee for its cozy beaches and pristine waters, renting a cabin or a room on the lake can be just as much fun in the fall and winter. The entire area slows down as temperatures dip into the 40s and 50s. Stunning shades of red, yellow, and auburn come alive as acres of woodlands show off their colors. You and your partner can spend your days hiking or biking through the resort’s many trails and pathways as you soak up the local scenery. There’s even a firepit on the property. Just put on a few extra layers, grab some marshmallows, and relax as you gaze up at the stars.

Enjoy Seasonal Creations at the Pier and Back Porch Restaurant

As the outdoors become less hospitable, you can stay warm all season long by heading to the resort’s own Pier and Back Porch Restaurant. We’re serving up some of your favorite seasonal favorites including homemade smores, delicious soups including New England chowder and French Onion, or the indulgent lobster and scallop mac-n-cheese. With rich flavors and unique ingredients, nothing says fall and winter like the Pier and Back Porch Restaurant on Lake Wawasee.

Explore Rare Finds in Syracuse, IN

When going to the beach isn’t an option, you can always enjoy a scenic drive through the area’s rolling hills and historic villages. Syracuse is filled with quaint shops, surprising antique stores and plenty of Amish farms and culture. Whether you want to experience the famous Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury, IN or peruse through rare finds at one of the town’s signature antique shops, you’ll find plenty of fun things to do and see in this friendly lakeside town.
