Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hotel Review – Collingwood, ON Sept 2020

I stayed here with my daughter for a mini getaway Friday, September 25th – Sunday, September 27th, 2020, and had a pleasant stay! This hotel was brand spanking new and it totally showed it. Prior to choosing this hotel through my number one go-to booking site; Booking dot com, I searched for reviews as we all do to get the feel of the place, but there wasn’t any. Hmm, that was kinda weird I thought. I took a chance anyway as the price was pretty okay and reserved for the weekend. Upon arrival just outside parking my car, we were not disappointed. Outside of the hotel were construction workers completing last-minute touches here and there and people maintaining the parking lot giving it a final wash. Who cares, it was beautiful and new! Entering the lobby, the main entrance to check in was bright and the staff was very welcoming.

Explore Niagara Falls (Canada) – A weekend Getaway Summer 2020

Last month my husband and I and along with our daughter, went for a little weekend getaway to Niagara Falls. It’s not a far drive from Toronto, so off we went. The weather for the weekend was beautiful. Not too hot during the day with cool temperatures during the evening, which made going for strolls along the falls, beautiful under the starry night. I am a lover of Niagara Falls, I never tire of it. I never get bored of it, I have seen and been there a thousand times, but always love it. I can’t say the same for my husband, laughing to myself right now, thank you for his patience though! I love him for that… We stayed as per usual at my favorite hotel; Sheraton On The Falls Though I never seem to use their facilities because we are always out and about, so on this particular

A Weekend Getaway in Haliburton, Ontario – August 2020

As a family of 5 humans plus 2 monstrous rottweillers, we packed our bags and headed to cottage country, Haliburton. Haliburton is a 2 hours drive from Toronto and a scenic one at that. This is our second year going to Haliburton thanks to awesome friends who give us their keys to their cottage and everything else that goes along with it. I mean seriously, there are some decent people left out there and they are one of them! We are so grateful to be able to take advantage of their generosity. The cottage is located in Tory Hill area, at the very farthest tip of the forest and edge of the lake and so private. We have the lake all to ourselves practically because you would have to cross a creek to get onto our property. Just watch the video, there is a short clip of the pick-up truck
