Girls Weekend Getaway at Blue Mountain Resort and Scandinave Spa

My friends and I decided to do a weekend getaway trip away from the city and to Blue Mountain this past weekend for some R+R. We got to enjoy the resort amenities like soaking in the hot tub and using the pool, wish the weather was warmer though! It's getting quite chilly lately. The hotel staff were exceptional at Blue and coming back here since my last visit 3 years ago brought back such good memories. 

Side Note: My husband actually proposed to me at Blue Mountain in April of 2011 and this resort will always have a special place in my heart. He rented one of the suites and surprised me by cooking and preparing all of my favorite meals and then proposed to me ... aww... we really should come back one year during April and bring our little furbaby I see so many people with dogs at the resort! I think that would be an amaizng treat :)

Anyways - I hope you guys enjoy the pictures below ...

Our bachelor suite was upgraded to a one bedroom - I forgot to take a picture of the king bed in the bedroom but it was super soft and comfortable with a TV and also had a kitchnette area if you wanted to bring your own food up and cook. 

We headed over to Magnone's Italian Kitchen for dinner - appetizer was alright, the calamari was a bit more batter than calamari. Bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was brought to the table which was great.

I had the Lamb Brasato ($26.95 pictured below) it was absolutely delicious - the portion was really generous and the picture just doesn't do it justice, the lamb was succulent and juicy and the pasta was cooked perfectly. It was great comfort food.

Below is the Salsiccia Pizza - my friend Nina liked the thin crust, generous toppings and the caramelized onions were done perfectly. It is a big portion for one person, so you can bring this home for a midnight snack after.

Below is the Penne Salsiccia ($19.95), Natasha really enjoyed this, there is a hint of Gorgonzola (Blue Cheese) so for those of you who don't enjoy the taste of Blue Cheese, you might want to avoid this. However, Tasha loves it so she gobbled it all up. Again, like my pasta it was a big portion that will leave you happy and full. 

When you walk out of Magnone's you get a nice view of the pond area - we took a brief walk around here to walk off the dinner and to work up some room for dessert.  The village area is lively and beautiful at night filled with families who are also taking their time outdoors. 

Look! An entire store dedicated to Christmas - I wanted everything in there it was so magical !

One of my favorite stores in the village is the Candy Shop below. I always have to visit it everytime, they have so many different flavors and types of candy you cant typically find elsewhere. I bought a bag of Green Tea Latte candies, which tasted like Green Tea icecream...mmm...

And, time for the best part... dessert.... Beaver Tails... mmm.. they have an actual Beaver Tails store front, not just a truck. 

We went to the Scandinave Spa on Sunday and was there right at opening to make sure we got a spot - this place is first come first serve, wait times can go up to 4 hours once it's full! Be sure to get there early if you want a spot! Their website is:

What we actually did was I booked our package on the Blue Mountain website and picked the Scandinave spa package, it includes a day pass to the spa with your room and it works out to be about $20-30 cheaper then if you were to book both things separately. The day pass to the spa is $50+taxes which allows you unlimited all day access to the hydrotherapy pools, eucalyptus steam rooms and sauna, meditation rooms.

All the pools are different temperatures varying from hot and cold - the basis of these pools are to relax your tense muscles by exposing them to different temperatures. One of the warm ones even have a waterfall so it feels amazing on your shoulders when you stand underneath. 

The two red roofed buildings are meditation rooms. The room off to the left with the brown roof is the sauna, and the metal circular building in the middle is the eucalyptus steam room - my favorite!! It clears all your sinuses and it's so calming. 

Around the spa, there are campfires, lots of muskoka chairs to relax on and hammocks. My girlfriends and I fell asleep on the hammock and took a very relaxing nap for about an hour. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone in need of some R+R away from the city. It's quiet and tucked away in the forest - it's about a 5-10 minutes drive from Blue Mountain Resort.

Until Next Time! - XO, M.
