Attention all mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends: it’s time for you to pack your bags and make some time for a well-deserved girls weekend getaway to Muskoka! There are countless things to do in Muskoka for the perfect girls’ weekend getaway, including wine tastings, spa retreats, and shopping in downtown Ontario. No matter your interests or budget, you’ll find Muskoka is one of the best girls trip destinations for you. Our staff here at Rawley Resort put together a list of our favourite activities for you and your girls to try out.
Girls Getaway to the Winery
Muskoka is home to some of the best wineries in Ontario. Kick-off your girls weekend getaway with a tasting at Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery. The wine tasting begins with craft wines made from quality, local fruit sourced from that region. French visitors and locals call this wine, terroir, meaning the taste of the place. The award-winning wines available for tasting range from dry to sweet, so you’ll likely find a wine you enjoy. After all, everything’s better when sipping fine wine!
Spa Retreat in Ontario
After wining down at Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery, indulge in a girls spa day at our on-site The Spa at Rawley. Our professional therapists use top of the line skin care products that are free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, and other commonly used harsh chemicals. Some of The Spa at Rawley’s most popular treatments include Aroma Massage, Mangosteen Resurfacing Facial, and body wraps. If you’ve allotted a large chunk of time for your spa retreat in Ontario, treat yourself to our LakeHouse Serenity Package. Your serene treatment will begin with a full body massage, followed by a custom organic facial, and finished with a manicure/pedicure duo. Be sure to make an appointment before your girls getaway since our treatments book quickly!
Muskoka Shopping Retreat
During the evening, head toward downtown Muskoka and walk along the picturesque storefronts. There are several charming shops, Instagram-worthy restaurants, and upscale art galleries to browse. Be sure to visit our favourite stores:
Arts at the Albion: Browse art created by nearly 20 artists, inside the exquisite, historic Albion Hotel. There are also art classes you can take with your girlfriends.
Muskoka Jewelry Design: This full-service jewelry store is the best shop to visit when searching for a unique piece of jewelry. There’s no better souvenir than finding matching pieces with your closest girls. Check out their sterling silver “X” ring; after all, X symbolizes infinity, and the love for girlfriends is timeless.
