Relaxing at Deerhurst Resort
Over March Break, we spent a few nights at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario. We purchased the March Break Maple Sugar Package and stayed in a junior suite.
At over $450.00 for two nights, this was not a budget getaway.
With relaxation as our main objective, the resort filled the bill. The weather was beautiful and despite being off-season, the surroundings were still gorgeous. Summer, fall and winter would be breath-taking. We took full advantage of the views from Algonquin chairs on the pavilion deck.
Our suite was clean and well laid out, however the décor could benefit with some up-dating. The beds were blissfully comfortable, and I appreciated the crisp white sheets and duvet. The gas fireplace was also enjoyed as was the wireless internet.
The Sugar Bush tour included in the package was well done and my kids took full advantage of the unlimited apple cider, muffins and maple taffy offered at the end of the tour.
Activities were pricey.
The pool was large but often crowded as was the hot tub.
My boys enjoyed the large chess board set up in one of the halls. Ping pong tables and a play area, mostly geared to younger kids, were also available.
The spa was everything a spa is supposed to be; relaxing and pampering. My hand treatment and eyebrow shaping were skilfully done. Like the activities, spa services were also pricey.
At the end of the day, Deerhurst provided a relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting.
