5 getaways in Ontario for the ultimate girls weekend

Girls weekend getaways in Ontario are the perfect way to escape the city for some quality time with your girl pals while getting to explore quaint towns, stunning architecture, and the natural beauty of the province.

From spa resorts to outdoorsy escapes, we have so many incredible destinations nearby for a fun weekend away to relax, explore, indulge, and unwind with your friends.

Here are some Ontario getaways for the ultimate girls' weekend.

Elora Mill Hotel & Spa

Get pampered with your best friends at the Elora Mill Hotel & Spa. The hotel is perched above the stunning Elora Gorge, featuring panoramic views, spa offerings, amazing dining, and more.

During your stay, you can go for a hike and explore the gorge, or take a dip in the Elora limestone quarry later in the season. Downtown Elora is a must as well, where you can stroll the quaint streets, try one of their many restaurants or cafes, and window shop the local boutiques. 

Inn on the Twenty

For a lesser-known hidden gem of a destination than Niagara-on-the-Lake, consider Jordan Village for your next girls getaway. Stay at Inn on the Twenty, which is surrounded by Niagara Wine Country's natural beauty and features an on-site wine cellar, spa and wellness center, and restaurant. 

Guests can opt for a cottage suite, a short walk away from the main inn, which is ideal for larger groups. Besides selecting from a variety of spa treatments and services you can also spend the day exploring the town that has welcoming shops, galleries, cozy cafes, and more.

Ste. Anne's Spa

With a wide range of spa treatments, gourmet food offerings, and beautiful grounds and facilities, Ste. Anne's Spa in Grafton offers all-inclusive packages which are perfect for prime relaxation and pampering with your girl friends.

Guests can stay in cozy cottages or suites, explore hiking trails on the property, partake in meditation classes, and enjoy afternoon tea and multi-course meals. Packages are a bit of a splurge, but as one of the consistently top-ranked spas in the country, it's worth it for a special occasion.

Picton, Ontario

For a weekend of wineries, amazing food, art trails, and picturesque landscapes, look no further than Picton in Prince Edward County. Rent bicycles and cycle to the various wineries, grab a gourmet meal at an incredible restaurant, or head to Sandbanks Provincial Park for an afternoon at the beach.

From the super-instagrammable June Motel to The Royal Hotel, which recently ranked one of the best new hotels in North America, there are no shortage of unique accommodations in Picton to rest your head and extend your stay.

Almonte

If you and your girl friends are rom-com fanatics, head to the small town of Almonte and re-create some of your favourite movie scenes. The charming community just outside of Ottawa has been the go-to filming destination for tons of Hallmark films, particularly holiday ones.

While in town, explore Mill Street, which has an almost-European feel and is full of cozy cafes, bakeries, art galleries, and local shops. Wander through the historic Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, or visit the picturesque Old Town Hall, which has been featured in various films.
