Maple Weekend in Muskoka

Maple syrup, liquid gold…whatever you’d like to call it, it’s delicious. We’re lucky to live in Canada, the land of maple syrup. Virtually all maple syrup is produced in Canada. There’s a few pockets in the USA that make syrup as well, but the vast majority is here. Right now, we’re in the heart of maple syrup season. Muskoka is celebrating with a Maple Syrup Festival that runs from now until April 20th. I spent the weekend exploring Muskoka and trying delicious maple products. Thanks for hosting, Muskoka Tourism.

We spent the weekend at the Lone Pine Inn. I stayed in a patio suite that had beautiful picture windows, a cozy living room, and a full kitchen. It was like staying in a cozy cottage. We were greeted in the best possible way, with a 6 pack of local beer from Sawdust City Brewing. (The owners of the inn actually own the brewery as well.) (more…)

Weekend Getaway: Winter in Grey County

Spring may be around the corner, but snow isn’t going anywhere, at least not for a little bit. Why not enjoy the crisp cold air and fluffy white snow? I spent a weekend exploring Grey County.

When people say that there’s nothing to do in the winter, it baffles me. There’s so much to do! Whether you stay in Toronto or go a bit further to neighboring regions, you can definitely find a way to enjoy the winter.

For me, one of my winter goals for the last few years has been to go on a sleigh ride. Last month, in Grey County, my sleigh ride dreams came true! (more…)

Weekend Getaway: Stratford, Ontario

A visit to Stratford in the fall has been on my list for quite some time. Whenever I visit Stratford, I’m always blown away by their amazing food offerings and charming downtown area. I always leave with a cooler full of delicious food! Thinking of planning your own trip to Stratford soon? Here’s what you should add to your list.

Where to Stay: Lofts at 99

Lofts at 99 is located above a bar, but don’t let that deter you. When we checked in, it was late at night and the bar was loud and filled with customers. However, when I walked up the flight of stairs and down the hallway to my room, it was silent. Despite the room being so close to the bar downstairs, we couldn’t hear a peep from the bar, which was great. (more…)
