Call now, this romantic winter retreat is sure to be sold out because VD is on a Saturday this year.

Less than an hour Northwest of Downtown Toronto, the historic Millcroft Inn & Spa is a refreshing blend of rural serenity and sophisticated hospitality. This former wool knitting mill is one of the most congenial getaways in southern Ontario, thanks to its historic ambiance, rural setting and dining room (under chef Roberto Fracchioni). There are 12 kilometres of trails winding through 100 acres of wooded grounds, millponds and gardens. The two-storey croft suites feature wood-burning fireplaces and patios. The ample spa offers 17 treatment areas, including the Ofuro room, with its Japanese soaking tub, and a couple’s room with a double tub.  An indoor pool, whirlpool, and cross country skis, snowshoes are all available as well.

Valentine’s Package:
To accommodate busy schedules, the inn offers two Valentine’s week getaway packages, one for a single night (available February 11 to 15), the other for two nights (February 9 to 18). Both packages offer a Valentine’s tasting menu in the main room—featuring seared sea scallops, port-poached beef tenderloin, and mascarpone and cherry empanadas—as well as a bottle of bubbly, breakfast the next morning and a $200 spa credit. One-night package starts at $337.50 per person; two nights from $238 per person, per night.
