  MsGinkgo:  Hey! FI and I were in the same boat and we ended up deciding to go to chicago and are taking the train from Port Huron.  We looked at a couple options and decided that they were all going to work out to be around the same price (we thought chicago was going to be too pricey and that we could find something in Ontario that would be cheaper – not the case haha).  We looked at (and know people who have been and loved) the Couples Resort in Whitney Ontario.  We also looked at Deerhurst.  They are both really nice.  The couples resort is all inclusive and apparently has AMAZING food.  But it is a bit pricey.  I have also heard good things about Mt. Tremblant.  Or there is always Montreal and Quebec City!  Good luck deciding – I hope I helped even a little!

MsGinkgo:  You could still go “south” and go to the Pelee Island Winery. It’s a beautiful island, with delicious wine, cute B&Bs, with a really lovely national park nearby. Its latitude is the same as northern California too, which always surprises people.

MsGinkgo:  I would suggest Niagara on the Lake. Very beautiful with  wine tours, cute shops but still close to home.

What are you interested in doing?  If you want something low key, look in to Langdon Hall in Cambridge.  It is fairly expensive, but the spa is wonderful and the restaurant is amazing.  They have a large amount of hiking trails as well but would not have a lot of activities.

MsGinkgo:  fair enough. Niagara on the Lake is not as close as Niagara Falls, and not like Niagara Falls at all (I can see why he would think Niagara Falls is cliche). When we went to Niagara on the Lake last year (just for the day), we loved it. We went on a horse and carriage ride through the little town..super cute!

MsGinkgo:  Their rooms are beautiful.  Don’t worry about it being in Cambridge, it’s kind of on the outskirts in a wooded area.  If you want to go elsewhere to eat though, not sure how far away it would be to get there.  My family is in London and we go to Langdon Hall for all our special event dinners (graduations, milestone birtdays etc).  If it’s in your budget I would consider it, sounds like what you are looking for.

MsGinkgo:  When are you getting married? If you want to do an early winter getaway, there is the ice hotel near Quebec City. There is also a smaller one near Montreal. That is definitely ALL about the room since they’re made yearly from ice.

If you want something in town, I can’t recommend anything in particular (since I live here, I never stay at hotels) but I would suggest you stay around the Old Port/Old Montreal. There are fireworks on Saturdays during the summer and it’s beautiful to walk around in. I’m sure there are some lovely hotels in that area if you do some quick googling.

The couples resort is awesome.  I have friends who go every year for an anniversary trip.  

I’d go skiing, but that’s what I do.  Mont Tremblant is lovely in the winter and summer.  And there are some great properties to choose from.  You could always rent a cottage or lake front property somewhere.  I love Killarney, its so gorgeous and peaceful.

Fairmont Chateau Montebello in Montebello, Quebec is supposed to be beautiful!  It would definitely meet your requirement of romantic and quiet as I know several couples who have honeymooned there.  The grounds are also supposed to be quite impressive.

DH and I didn’t really ‘honeymoon’, but we spent a couple nights at The Inn at Christie’s Mill in Port Severn. They have a spa on site (as well as a restaurant), but we still ventured elsewhere… like a boat cruise of the islands, etc., and the casino in Orillia. Nothing too exciting, but I wish we spent more time, lol.

If you head near Ottawa/Quebec, you could spend several days at the Nordik Spa — truly exceptional. Then you could also travel in Gatineau Park, which is absolutely gorgeous, spend time in downtown Ottawa sightseeing, anything you want!<br />http://www.lenordik.com/en/welcome/

Not sure how far you want to travel, but FH and I talked about doing a couple days on Manitoulin Island. Apparently its gorgeous in the fall, has some cute B&B’s, and there is a gold mine you can tour. <br />We’ve also talked about taking the via rail to Montreal or Quebec City, as the train trip will be nice and relaxing with great views. <br /><br />

All of the other ideas from PP’s sound great too. So many travel options within the province!
