A visit to The Red Umbrella Inn in Haliburtan,ON

We have been a few great adventures this summer and as the season wraps up, I’d love to share with you some of our favourite spots.  Nestled along Twelve Mile Lake in Haliburton, Ontario you will find a great family owned resort called Red Umbrella Inn. We had our own cottage that faced the beautiful sparkling lake.  I must admit, I was apprehensive at first…

Visiting Fern Resort? Here are some of our favourite things about Fern Resort

We recently visited Fern Resort, it was wonderful!  For four nights I didn’t have to cook or clean.  I got to relax! A short drive that’s about 90 minutes from the GTA is just outside Orillia. This is where you will find this 100+-year-old all year family resort.   I have a few favourite things to say but I’ll…

Severn Lodge ~ Where memories are made in the heart of the Trent Severn Waterway

We discovered our new favourite resort located in beautiful Muskoka.  Severn Lodge.  What can I say about Severn Lodge? Hmmm….well. Serenity is one.  It was like a breath of fresh air when I walked up to the main lodge to check in.  It had such a different vibe than our first spot which was at Blue Mountain.  I’ll be honest…

The All Seasons Experience at Blue Mountain Resort

We just got back from vacation.  What a great vacation it was as I was working with Ford Canada on reviewing their Ford Flex so we booked the week at two resorts to also celebrate my husband’s birthday.  One at Blue Mountain Resort and the other at Severn Lodge.  Two very different experiences-two very different vibes.  Today’s post will be all…

Merland Park Cottages- Our favourite place to cottage in Prince Edward County

If you’re looking for a cottage to rent this Summer and want to visit Prince Edward County, I highly recommend Merland Park Cottage.  We had a lovely one night stay there as we were driving back from Kingston.  I think it was the most relaxing day for all of us! We had just gotten off the Glenora Ferry and were driving around thinking we’d…

Take your kids to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra!

Did you see what we were up to over the weekend on my instragram? My son and I went to Roy Thomson Hall to see Peter and the Wolf.  It was everything I’d hope it would be.  It was highly entertaining and my son loved it.  He wishes it was longer and I am so happy that my son has a love for classical music…

Niagara Falls Hotels at the Courtyard Marriott #Niagara Falls

    What can I say about our experience at the Niagara Falls Hotels? As I reflect what comes to mind is when I first walked in I was greeted with smiles.  Do you know how refreshing that it? I wish all places greeted a guest like that.  Whether your walking into a boutique or restaurant.  It’s a lost art of customer service that is…
