If you’re looking for a luxurious romantic getaway that will impress, or you’re looking for a cozy retreat, how does your own private retreat with a personal gourmet chef sound like?
Perhaps the most romantic destination in the province, Black River Retreat ensures complete privacy by accommodating only one couple at a time.
Black River Retreat is located halfway between Ottawa and Toronto, nestled among two acres of wooded hills with half a kilometer of riverfront privacy on the peaceful Black River in Tweed.
There is only one cabin on the property, but it has everything and more than one could ask for, adorned with the most extravagant decor everywhere you look.
The bedroom suite features a living room with a gas fireplace, kitchenette, coffee maker, king log bed, and opulent bathroom clad in travertine and stone. The private dining room is regal with a grand floor-to-ceiling stone gas fireplace and intricately carved throne chairs.
Enter the lavish great room with wraparound glass windows and more woodland decor, a cast iron stove and quirky western saloon fittings which you can admire from the loft above. The Wild West Loft is fully stocked with cards, dice, board games, movies and whiskey to really get you in the mood.
Included with the retreat is your personal chef who will prepare gourmet four-course dinners and breakfasts throughout your stay. Talk about luxury.
If you’re traveling with friends, the cabin also has a second private guest suite with a stone fireplace, living room, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom.
Outside the cabin is an inviting cedar hot tub surrounded by pine trees and illuminated by romantic fairy lights. Guests can snowshoe along the riverfront and then warm up by the outdoor fire pit.
Such an experience doesn’t come cheap, with prices starting at $550 per night. Special occasion dates like New Year’s and Valentine’s Day are more expensive, but this short break is guaranteed to be a memorable one.
