Ste. Anne's Country Inn & Spa

Grafton, Ontario, Canada

A genteel, Old World atmosphere permeates Ste. Anne's, set in the scenic, rolling Ontario countryside. The charming guest rooms—each with a distinct décor—are located either in the main inn or in small cottages dotting the property's 500 acres and within easy reach of the spa. There, guests' tailor-made regimes include treatments using natural ingredients like shitake mushrooms and golden mud, and visits to the outdoor fieldstone grotto with plunge and lap pools. The spa's attention to environmental concerns extends to the dining room, where organic ingredients are used in the gourmet fare. Antiquing in the village and eating picnic lunches at a nearby winery are among readers' favorite excursions.
