Fall is finally here and with real estate season going into high gear, it’s time to start thinking about getting away! You don’t have to book a flight to Paris or NYC to have a great time away from home – all you have to do is choose your destination, grab your partner and go! Here we’re going to talk about some of the top romantic getaways that are just around the corner, so let’s get started!
Helpful Tip: You’re aiming for luxury, not pretention. You’re looking for the entire package. Your destination needs to have the best meals, beautiful guestrooms, spa services and maybe even some activities (or lack thereof – if that’s what you’re going for!) that you’re interested in.
Taboo on Lake Muskoka is a beautiful place for couples to be close to the water all year long, go skiing and spend time together. It boasts a 5,000 square foot spa, a restaurant with multi-course tasting menus and even a culinary theatre where you can watch the chefs at work! While this isn’t a pretentious resort, you will have to dress up for dinner.
Here you’ll find the star treatment and the signature Old World beauty of Langdon Hall. Winner of numerous awards online and in prestigious publications, here you’ll be able to indulge yourself without the guilt! With King sized featherbeds, 1600 bottles of wine to choose from, haute cuisine that runs the gamut, free wine tastings on Saturday afternoons and even cooking demos on Sundays – there’s so many reasons to stay the whole weekend through.
One of the best vintage boutique hotels hands down, the Millcroft Inn offers a beautiful rustic experience year round. Best visited in the fall and winter, you’ll have your choice of distractions. Choose romantic, antiqued quarters or rustic chalets – but almost every room has wood burning fireplaces and some come equipped with their very own private, outdoor hot tubs. With a 9,000 square foot spa, executive chef, and a stunning 180° three quarter view of Shaw’s Creek Falls at the fantastic Headwaters Restaurant.
This is the perfect time of year to relax and reconnect with your partner – just make sure that the destination that you choose is the one that’s right for you! While some may relish an environment that shuns TV and mobile phones, it may not be the best for those of us who are workaholics and vice versa. Always do your research, explore your options and know what you’re getting into.
