It doesn't take an experienced sailor to know that sometimes you need to anchor down to avoid sinking the ship.

If it looks like there's a squall on life's horizon, put some wind in your sail to escape to the Cove of Lake Geneva. Cut and run for a one- ($110) or two-night ($215) stay for two in the Anchor Suite, featuring a fully equipped kitchen, whirlpool tub, gas fireplace, flat-screen TV and patio. You'll be greeted with wine and cheese upon docking at the lakeside resort in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

"The Cove of Lake Geneva resort offers all the ingredients for an exceptional stay," said Discover Wisconsin. "Steps from the lakefront, the beautiful all-suite accommodations are a decadent retreat. Swim in the heated indoor and outdoor pools, or take a walk to downtown's shops, restaurants, and lake cruises."

Rent a jet ski to cruise the 21-mile-wide lake, or take a boat out to hook some bluegill, trout, or bass for dinner. And if that doesn't get your rudder turning, float like a buoy over to Geneva National Golf Club, a 54-hole course designed by pros Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino.

Afterward, hit the deck at Sprecher's Restaurant and Pub, and use your $30 dining credit toward casual cuisine like the Cheesehead burger or specialty beer-braised short ribs, along with local brews. Then, watch the sun set over the water while you drift into a state of pure relaxation.

You'll want to hop aboard for an escape that will have you cruising.
