This winter take the time to nestle-up together in your own winter paradise. We may be used to ‘travelling south’ as soon as the cold weather hits, but did you know you really don’t need to go far to truly get away? Here in New Brunswick we’ve got so many unique spots and activities that are just what you need to reconnect, warm up, and relax together.
Get cosy while being close to nature
There is no better way to get away from it all than staying in nature. Enjoy the many charming glamping offerings throughout the province, such as domes, yurts, oTENTiks, or rustic cabins. During your stay, stargaze at night, curl up with your favourite person, and enjoy a quiet night by the fire.
There are options galore, like famed Broadleaf Ranch. During your stay at Broadleaf, you and your loved one can cuddle-up on a sleigh ride to enjoy the stunning views of Albert Country Woodland and Shepody Marshland. Or, if you really want to dive into winter fun, try horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, skating, tobogganing, or even snowmobiling. Just make sure to bring your own equipment as rentals are not currently available.
Another fantastic spot to check out is Storeytown Cottages. One cottage, in particular, is just perfect for you – the Love Shack! It is the only cottage with a private hot tub and is prime for a quiet retreat. And to make your stay at Storeytown Cottages extra sweet, they’re offering a Frozen in Time Winter Romance Package - complete with bottle of sparkling wine, fruit & chocolate, luxury spa towels and a 15-minute couple’s photoshoot.
We really know how to do winter getaways in nature. Especially with our various glamping domes across the province. During your stay at Ridgeback Lodge, Cielo Glamping, or Creekside RnR, you will be one with nature and get the chance to enjoy all the wonders of winter – shiny stars, untouched snow, and peace and quiet.
