How to be Romantic in Winter | Resorts of Ontario

4 Jan

Super excited to be writing a second ‘Romance’ themed travel article for Resorts of Ontario Magazine. The Fella and I spent two nights in two different Ontario resorts that knocked our sexy socks off.

The article will come out soon, but in the meantime, I thought I would repost last year’s article…just in case you’re looking for a little inspiration on how to heat up your relationship when it’s too cold to move in Toronto.

My fella and I have been in a long distance relationship for a year and a half. I lived in Vancouver and he was in Chicago, so we were also international. If you ever get tired of having money in the bank or regular human contact, try a long distance relationship!

I’m an insomniac!)

We’ve spent so much brain power organizing the move that we’ve barely taken a breath to celebrate the success of finally living together. So what better way to bond with each other AND Ontario than a romantic night away?

I wanted to find a resort that would re-boot the romance-o-meter, and in my books that means cozy quarters near water. Killarney Lodge in Algonquin Park, Sir Sams in Haliburton and Irwin Inn on Stoney Lake looked to have it all. Cabins by a lake, nature and country dining. After much deliberations, I finally decided on The Millcroft Inn & Spa in Caledon. It was originally built in 1881 as a knitting mill and sits on the edge of the picturesque Mill Pond
