We have just come back from a very well rested, stress-free mini holiday. I had a wonderful time and I would suggest this destination to anyone who needs to get away for a bit.
I always find it difficult to pack for mini getaways. Do I need a dressier outfit? Will I be doing outdoorsy stuff? I wonder what the dress code is for dinner? Lots of questions. It's a good thing I had my travel coordinators on hand to assist:
The thing I enjoy most about driving north, is the total change in environment. It even smells different. I can't quite explain. As soon as you hit a certain point on the highway, you know you are northward bound. There is so much to see on the way up there.
We were a bit concerned about the weather.
As soon as we arrived in Bracebridge, our fears were gone.
This is where we stayed:
It was so cool. It's a side street with a lot of little houses. At the end is a more "hotel" looking building.
We stayed here, at The Gate House:
It was beautiful inside. Not at all what I was expecting:
There were a lot of wonderful restaurants to enjoy. We had breakfast here:
And this was our dinner:
I had linguine with prawns and scallops,
Husband had swordfish with crab cakes.
I loved the ambiance:
There were lots of things to explore in town:
This is just something I found terribly amusing.
We now know where Tony's target audience resides.
I am sure there is so much I could tell you, unfortunately, I cannot think of another thing for the moment. I hope you are all enjoying the week and I will check back soon. :D
