Luxury B&B Ontario Resort Resonance

EDITORIAL NOTE ~ The Resonance, unfortunately, is no longer in business.The links at the end of this story for things to do in and around the area are all still active though.


A romantic weekend getaway made for you and your lover

Chain hotels are so 2008. Seriously. It's time you let your getaway take you somewhere completely private. Situated at the gateway to cottage country and an hour from Toronto, Resonance B & B has what you need. Anna and Bob are your hosts but you'll only see them as much (or as little) as you want. After all, you came here to escape, right?

Resonance - the cabin

There's only one room at this inn and it's in a quaint 1800's refurbished log cabin well away from the main Resonance, Ontario Bed and BreakfastResonance, Ontario Bed and Breakfasthouse. The exterior resembles a gingerbread house and the inside is equally charming. The king size bed is the focal point, but don't miss the fireplace or Jacuzzi in the ensuite.



This space was made for indulging with your lover.

During the day, the room fills with light from all theResonance - The CabinResonance - The Cabin windows. But don't worry about privacy - there's no one within 80 acres to see you frolicking textile-free. At night, leave the windows open and you'll hear bats flying overhead from the nearby barn.

Anna keeps the cabin well stocked with a smorgasbord of coffee, teas and candles and brings fresh treats every day - cookies, tarts, cakes. A small kitchenette complete with fridge, stove, microwave ensure that you'll have everything you need - should you choose to actually make dinner.

Step outside the backdoor of the cabin and you'll find my favorite amenity - an outdoor hot tub. I've visited Resonance in the summer and winter, and the hot tub is my kryptonite. Fill up the wine glasses, tiptoe across the snow and get ready for the lightshow of your life.

Resonance - the grounds

The true beauty of resonance is the land it lies on - 80 acres of chemical-free trails. You'll find beautiful Italian statues tucked into grottos and trickling streams where you might get lucky enough to spot a deer. By the way, the grottos are very private, so getting lucky might be the theme of your walk....

Resonance GroundsResonance GroundsAnna and Bob keep the trails maintained during the year, but they're best enjoyed in the summer and fall.





Resonance - the food

You might come to get away, to spend time with your lover, but let's be honest, it's the food that will dazzle you. Anna's breakfasts are nirvana on a plate - and she's happy to fashion that nirvana however your stomach desires.

You choose where you want to dine - the main house,Resonance - Gourmet Breakfast NookResonance - Gourmet Breakfast Nook the patio of your cabin, the dining table inside your cabin or in bed. Plan for at least 2 hours from start to finish - and pace yourself.

The fruit and bread courses are all handmade and prepared and will make you want to bring Anna home with you, but the main course will be your undoing. There's a little slice of heaven here for vegans, vegetarians and meat lovers - crepes, eggs Benedict, omelettes, fresh blueberry pancakes. 

Once you've stuffed yourself, soaked yourself and walked off the stress of your busy life, there's only one thing left to do at Resonance. And you can figure that out for yourself.

Rates vary, depending on season and day of the week.
