Where: Kohler, Wisc.

What it costs: $1,545-$1,870 per night

What’s inside: The French name for “Water of Life” is an apt moniker for Kohler’s best suite. Its 787 square feet houses an unforgettable bathroom that incorporates the latest bath and shower products from Kohler Co. The high-tech shower features a digital thermostatic valve and chromatherapy, a lighting system which the resort says "uses the soothing qualities of color to let your mind and body drift and dream as you relax into a warm bath." The suite is rose-themed, in honor of the courtship of Herbert V. Kohler’s parents, where Herbert’s father sent a dozen red roses to Ruth DeYoung for three consecutive months before his proposal. Other distinctive offerings include elegant Beau Monde custom mosaic tiling by Ann Sacks, delicate rose etchings, a handsome four-paneled glass fireplace adjacent to the bath, a private elevator, wet bar, and a spacious bedroom with king bed and two powder rooms.

What else you get: Resort guests can choose from four Pete Dye-designed championship courses, including Blackwolf Run, site of two U.S. Women’s Opens, and Whistling Straits, whose Straits course hosts its third PGA Championship in 2015. As you might expect from America’s water, faucet and plumbing experts, the Kohler Waters Spa is one of the nation’s finest. Gourmet dining is on offer at the Immigrant Room and, this being Wisconsin, the cheese selection is world class. Don’t miss more casual fare and tap beers at the Horse & Plow -- and splurge for the Beer-battered Gibbsville Cheese Curds, accompanied by country buttermilk ranch dressing. You can burn off the calories at the spa’s fitness center, by power shopping at the Shops at Woodlake, kayaking down the Sheboygan River at River Wildlife or hoofing it around the Straits.

The Straits Course at Whistling Straits has hosted three PGA Championships in the last 12 years.
