Ste. Anne’s Spa is an all-inclusive Ontario Spa Resort located in Grafton, Ontario, just a short drive from Toronto situated in a beautiful farm setting. If you are looking for a little pampering over the weekend, this is the place. My first time visiting the all-inclusive spa, but I had heard so many great things. Ste. Anne’s Spa gives its guests a grounding and relaxing experience away from the stressful 9-5 life. If you are looking to surround yourself with traditional cottages, beautiful farmscapes and have a spa weekend with great deals, this is the place.
You can casually walk around the premises wearing your robe, and in fact, you can even have your breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea wearing your robe! Most places I have been require you to dress back into your regular clothes, but not here. Comfort is what Ste. Anne’s Spa wants to promote and they do a great job making you feel right at home.
Ste Anne’s Spa has seven Spa Cottages to choose from when you are arranging your stay, depending on the size of your party and budget. We stayed in the Vista Lago cottage and it was the perfect set up for an amazing cottage spa getaway. Vista Lago is located 1.5 km from the Main Inn and sits on top a peak overlooking the breathtaking hills of Northumberland, and a beautiful sunrise view of Lake Ontario. The Vista Lago fits up to 8 people, so it was perfect for our group of 5.

Food – Our Private Chef Experience at our Cottage
The culinary experience at Ste. Anne’s Spa is what makes the stay unforgettable. On Friday night we were treated to the ultimate Private Chef Experience! A chef came to our cottage and prepared a delicious 4-course meal. The chef was able to accommodate all of our lengthy,dietary needs- a nut allergy and gluten sensitivity, a non-dairy as well as vegetarian diet. Upon booking our reservations we informed the spa of our food restrictions and the chef took care of the rest. Ste Anne’s Spa is an all-inclusive spa resort experience so we also got to enjoy breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Bonus tip: If you want to have extras, just ask the waiter and they will be some extra food over.
Spa Experience at Ste Anne’s All-Inclusive Spa Resort
I loved my spa experience. I chose the 1.5 hour Contouring mud wrap spa, and my skin felt so soft and refreshed after. First the therapist started with a hot stone massage, followed with the mud scrub and then I was wrapped with warm linens. While I was wrapped I was given a face and foot massage. What made the experience unique was being asked what kind of essential oils I wanted to be used for my treatment.
Before heading to my spa appointment, the girls and I visited the Fieldstone Grotto to take advantage of the water therapy treatment. This included taking a plunge in the hot pool and then a quick dip in the cold pool to ensure our pores close. It is important to do this in order so that your pores do not stay open. Another room worth visiting at Ste Anne’s Spa is the Eucalyptus steam room. Perfect way to distress and inhale the refreshing scent of Eucalyptus especially since Eucalyptus is a great remedy for colds.
I am so happy that the girls and I got to spend our weekend here and I am looking forward to coming back again. The facilities are not meant to be luxurious. This is a resort that aims to make you feel as if you are at on a weekend away at a casual country home.
Thank you to Ste. Anne’s All-Inclusive Spa Resort for hosting us with this amazing stay!
