For the second year in a row, three Wisconsin resorts have been named among the top 10 resort hotels in the Midwest by Travel + Leisure as part of the magazine’s 2021 World’s Best Awards. One Wisconsin-based tour company also rejoined the rankings this year.
The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin’s only AAA Five-Star and Forbes Five-Diamond resort, made the list for the third year in a row, ranking seventh. The Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake (No. 9) and Sundara Inn & Spa in Wisconsin Dells (No. 10) also made the list.
The Deer Path Inn in Lake Forest, Illinois, claimed the list’s top spot for the third year in a row.
Trek Travel, based in Madison, was ranked 10th among the world’s 15 best tour operators. The active tour company that specializes in bicycle tours also made the list in 2016 and 2018.
The awards are based on reader surveys conducted from Jan. 11 through May 10, as many travel destinations were lifting COVID-19 restrictions. The winners were published on the Travel + Leisure website on Sept. 8.
