So we're roughly one week away from Valentine's Day and if you're in a relationship and haven't started planning yet, it's time to get on it. But no worries we've got your back with maybe one of the most romantic and exciting dates you can give your S/O. We're talking about a relaxing, luxurious, night under the stars with all the amenities you need and want to ensure that the night goes off without a hitch.
For those in Ontario, the Whispering Springs Wilderness Retreat located in Grafton, Ontario is the opportunity to do something other than dinner and a movie this year. Instead you can give your bae the ultimate couples getaway complete with bubble baths in the forest, champagne tent service, and romantic campfires beneath the nights sky.
Only about 90 minutes East of Toronto and 20 minutes from Lake Ontario, the bougie campgrounds offers couples a private safari-style tent adorned with a king or queen sized bed, luxury linens and robes, rustic-chic furniture and an ensuite bathroom with a soaker tub to set the mood and put you in the right state of mind for a perfect romantic weekend.
For added relaxation you can take part in couples yoga, book an hour long massage, or hang out together while you get a personalized consultation with a nutritionist - all for an additional cost that is.
And while they do provide breakfast right to your tent, all other food needs to be packed, cooked on the personal BBQ by your tent, or bought from neighbouring restaurants. So hopefully you know a recipe or two and that impress and woe your special someone.
The only drawback is that this Valentine's Day gift comes as a buy now try later type of excursion since Whispering Springs' camp site doesn't open up till May 18th this year. A good thing maybe, because nothing about -11°C weather screams romantic. However they do have gift cards for this romantic getaway so that you can pre-purchase your trip on their website and still have something to wrap up and give to bae this February 14th.
The cost of this glamping retreat varies depending on the package you'd like to select but the Deluxe Safari Tents for 2 people will run you anywhere from $295 to $349 a night. There is a 2 night minimum when you book online but if you call ahead you can inquire about one night stays. For more info check out their website here.
