I am still enjoying the relaxed feeling that I instantly had upon entering the front lobby of Samuels hotel, located just outside of Goderich, for the Snowflake Getaway with my husband this past weekend. As parents to three busy kiddos we always say to each other that we need the chance to get away and spend some time without the kids but rarely do that. This package from Samuels provided just what we needed to relax and enjoy some “us” time with out being called “mom and dad” for a bit. The package included accommodation with a welcome gift, $50 voucher towards our dinner from the bistro menu and breakfast. I have enjoyed cooking classes and dinners out at Samuels but I never had the opportunity to stay overnight. The owners, Hugh and Kim Burgsma, have created a beautiful 13 room (plus the school house suite) boutique hotel that one would expect in a big city and made it available to visitors to Ontario’s West Coast.

We were greeted by the friendly front of house staff member, Sarah, and felt very welcomed. The large Jacuzzi room was nicely furnished and very clean. The view from the terrace was of the beautiful Maitland River and provided a wonderful sunset as we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in our room. As the weather was cooler, we took advantage of the fireplace in our room to add to the relaxing atmosphere.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal from the Bistro menu along side other guests by the stone fireplace in the dining room. We started with the baked Brie with berry port compote and French Onion soup, which was the perfect start to our dining experience. Our mains included a smoked pulled-pork wrap (a favourite of my husband’s) and coconut curry prawns with basmati rice, which was beautifully scented.  And, the servings were very large! We decided we could not turn down dessert and shared a mouth-watering brandy baklava that was served with warm crème Anglaise. YUM!

On our way back to our room we stopped to pick up a DVD from the collection available to guests to watch back in our room. It was nice to be able to have access to a wide variety of titles, along with several books that are free to borrow.  A variety of snacks and beverages are also available for guests to purchase.

I took advantage of the beautifully large Jacuzzi tub and enjoyed a nice long soak with some wonderfully scented bath salts that were provided in the room. Afterwards we cozied up on our bed to watch the movie. It is so nice to have a DVD player in each room.

After an amazing long sleep in the comfy bed, we ventured out into the dining area for our breakfast, which included a continental buffet of cereals, fruit, yogurt, breads and pastries, juice and coffee as well as an item off the hot breakfast menu. My husband enjoyed the Caramapple crepes (so good) and I had the Belgium waffle with fresh berries. Service was, again, excellent – as was the food.

I would highly recommend the Snowflake Getaway package at Samuels. They really understand hospitality and treated us like valued guests. It is in a great location for exploring all that Goderich and area has to offer this winter – from snowshoeing and cross-country skiing on the trails to shopping at the many excellent shops in the downtown square! Why not book yourself some time with friends or your partner and enjoy all that Samuels and Ontario’s West Coast has to offer?!

A Girls Getaway Photo Shoot

20 Mar

This week was a catch up week and I needed a “Girls Getaway” photo for an ad. Kaylie and I had planned a meeting in Bayfield, so I invited Brittany Fry and Monica Walker-Bolton to come with me. I don’t know how many times a month I am looking for models for photo shoots, but this time everything worked out perfectly! We ended up finding another friend while in Bayfield, so it made for a great day and perfect photo shoot!
