A Perfect Little Mother's Day Getaway

This past weekend I went away for a little sister time, birthday celebration 
& an early Mother's Day all wrapped up in one.  
It. Was. Amazing. 

We went to Blue Mountain Village, ON and had a weekend full of relaxation, cafes, art galleries & house stalking...
To me, a perfect weekend.   

Our weekend started Friday afternoon at the Scandinave Spa....yes please!   It was sooooo relaxing.  We were only allowed to whisper (#shhhrelax)...which proved to be very hard for some people.  We quietly walked around, enjoying the hot baths, steam rooms & saunas.  We also lounged in the solarium rooms & outdoor hammocks & read books by the outdoor campfire. 

If you're thinking about going, you'll need to pack your bathing suit, water bottle, flip flops & a good book.  You can take your own housecoat, but they also provide them along with towels.   They do have a cafe for lunch & I strongly suggest the chicken salad sandwich & beef soup.

A few things I would recommend:  
1. Going during the week to avoid crowds;
2. Going in the Fall to experience the Fall color & cooler temps.  Each of their relaxing rooms overlooks the forest so the Fall color would be spectacular; and
3.  Going later in the day so you can go home and sleep right after. :)

I highly recommend this spa for or truly relax & refocus.    And any guys out there who are still wondering what to do for their wife on mother's day...the spa is perfect.

More of what I did on my getaway weekend in Collingwood, including my new favorite store, coming soon.

Have a great week!
