If you prefer nippy Northern winters over scorching Southern temps, skip the snowbird mass migration and nest close to home with this week's Escape to The Audubon Inn in Mayville, Wisconsin.

Fly the coop for an overnight stay for two in a standard room, Sundays through Thursdays ($49) or Fridays and Saturdays ($59). Check in in the evening and be greeted to two handmade desserts at The Beaumont Restaurant. Then, wake up happier than a spring chicken in the morning with an included continental breakfast of make-your-own pancakes, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal, cereal, tea, breads, and fresh fruit.

Located halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, this unique B&B was built in 1896 and transports visitors back to a bygone era. It's a nationally recognized historical landmark with period features, hand-carved furniture, and distinctive décor, but also modern amenities.

Each room is equipped with an extra large double Jacuzzi tub, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a coffee maker—and each is elegantly appointed with a queen-size, four-poster canopy bed with handmade quilts, a private bath, and a writing desk and chair with Tiffany lamps for added charm and character.

Head out to Horicon Marsh, Wisconsin's largest wildlife preserve. Spend the day snowshoeing or cross-country skiing around the Horicon Marsh, visit the old-fashioned confectionery store, or grab a slice of cheddar at Widmer's Cheese Cellars—or just wing it: There's plenty to do in this historic hamlet.

Relax with a cocktail at the Beaumont Bar. Named Wisconsin's Most Beautiful Bar, it boasts gorgeous stained-glass windows, high ceilings, and a stained-glass ceiling depicting the migration of the Canadian geese. Then, dine in the award-winning Beaumont Restaurant, and try the roasted duck breast with Door County cherry-demi glace or the sweet potato gnocchi.

Visitors flock to this charming area for its avian-inspired ambiance, old-world charm, and friendly small-town feel. With this high-flying Escape, you can warm up this winter without ever having to leave Wisconsin.

  • "Right in the heart of downtown Mayville, [it] has an immediate elegant, historic feeling. The perfect place for a... couple looking for a spectacular stay at the gateway to one of the world’s top birding locations."
