Kick Your Feet Up

What better way to relax than a day spent at the spa - head over to the Oakwood Resort in Grand Bend for a lush pampering experience. From mani pedi’s to game-changing facials, there will be a service that is sure to send you down the path towards utter relaxation. Who said you need to be a couple to get a couples massage?

Where to Sleep

If you’re dedicating your weekend to living life at the spa, you can book a tranquil room at the Oakwood Resort. But if you’re looking for something more in-town, book your stay at the Pine Dale Motor Inn in the heart of Grand Bend. Backing onto the Old Ausable River, the Pine Dale promises classic, modern accommodations with “a little bit extra” for a kick of flavor.

For some outdoorsy fun, take a glamping (glamorous camping) trip to Pinery Provincial Park and get settled in one of their exciting roofed accommodations – like a cute little yurt! It’s the perfect way to experience the outdoors without everything that comes along with “roughing it”. Did I mention these accommodations are fully furnished and have electricity? Bliss!

Get Your Drink On

Why settle for one tasting when you can have four?  Twin Pines Orchards and Cider House may not be your traditional spot, but their samples are an example of a perfectly crisp cider. Bring some home to share with your friends that missed out on the trip!

While you’re at it, head to the outskirts of Grand Bend and visit the grand Dark Horse Estate Winery. Closely resembling the iconic vineyards of the Niagara region, take the chance to expand your Ontario wine collection and impress everyone at your next party.
