Girlfriend Spa Getaway - HighFields Country Inn & Spa, Zephyr ,Ontario

Part 1 - A country spa with a Hollywood twist

How about this for a novel spa idea? An innkeeper who is also a qualified esthetician and offers specialty spa treatments and personally greets guests when they arrive?

HighFields Country Inn and SpaHighFields Country Inn and SpaNorma Daniel, HighFields owner, isn't interested in being the biggest or showiest spa in Ontario - but she is committed to offering her personal best to each and every guest. So getting away from your daily grind and checking into HighFields can feel more like staying with friends than it does an inn.

Spa Overview

The 10 treatment rooms at HighFields are spread overNorma Daniels, InnkeeperNorma Daniels, Innkeepertwo floors and the spa lounge is also the inn's entranceway. The lower floor of the spa houses another cozier lounge with a fireplace, but be sure to let Daniel know if you choose to wait there for your therapist. It may be a small inn, but therapists use the front desk as their central meeting space with guests. At first blush it feels disjointed, but the relaxed country atmosphere helps smooth over the rough edges.

If you choose a hydrotherapy body treatment, you'll be upstairs in the newly renovated wet room. Near the honeymoon suite, you'll find the pedicure room with massage chair and the infrared sauna is in another part of the inn beside the restaurant. The fitness room, sauna, showers and 6 additional treatments are all in the lower level.

You won't find traditional spa treatment rooms here - 3 of the rooms are oversized and have multiple beds to accommodate groups. Each therapist has her own room and while there is a common decorating theme throughout, you'll find a unique personality in each room. The manicure station overlooks the grounds in the lower level lounge.

The treatments offered here are as unique as the owner, running the gamut from high-tech facials favored by Hollywood royalty to EBR Cellular Cleanse to Zen massage therapy. Many of the treatments Daniel designs are cutting edge and unusual for spas outside the high-end realm. Hugh Grant, Geena Davis, Jim Carrey and Ray Romano are just a few actors who've shot films in the area and checked into Highfields for some of the innovation Daniel offers.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
