Last Day And Living At Fox Harb’r Resort

Date: July 22, 2016 Last day of the trip and it started off early at 4:44 a.m. In the peak hours of the morning, I went to go to the top of the 16th hole with a group to take pictures of the sunrise at 5:30 a.m.. It was a beautiful sight to see. The sunrise bathed the whole golf course and water ahead of us. It was simply stunning. One of the best sunrises I’ve seen.

Date: July 21, 2016 Good morning from Fox Harb’r Resort! After a wonderful night’s sleep, a jacuzzi bath and a shower, I was ready for the morning ahead.

A Jet Makes A Better Entrance Than Me At Fox Harb’r Resort

Woke up this morning, excited. I realized something. I was heading to the east coast today. This is somewhat a rare occurrence for Canadian luxury. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of luxury out on the east coast. The views are stunning and there are plenty of beautiful experiences you can have that are both rich and fulfilling. Yet, people tend to look west for stories like this. City centres with a big hotelier names. Or something more ‘in town’. However these (the story I am about to tell you) are the stories we love. People trying to bring light to[Read More]

A Niagara-On-The-Lake Weekend At The Woodbourne Inn

Niagara-on-the-lake is a popular destination for a weekend getaway. Especially for those who like wine. But, where to stay? You could be 20, if not 40 minutes from some wineries with hotels around the Niagara Falls. But, then you remove yourself from the community and don’t immerse in the rich food and beverage culture. We suggest the Woodbourne Inn. We checked in on the Friday after a relatively short trip from Toronto, passing shopping complexes and expansive vineyards on the way to Canadian wine country. Enter The Woodbourne Inn FRIDAY Once you get out of the congestion of Toronto, the[Read More]

Day Two At Cobble Beach

After a relaxing day one, we had a wonderful hint of what the rest of the snow and sun-filled days were going to be like. The morning of Day 2 started with a wonderful breakfast, french toast, but it wasn’t your usual french toast, it had caramelized bananas, Nutella, and plenty of deliciousness to start your day in the right way. Oh, and yes, we said Nutella. If you love Nutella, you will love what Chef Tim has in store for you. Then it was time for the spa. Like many Torontonians, I was hunched over a laptop. I went[Read More]

Day One At Cobble Beach
