ONTARIO'S NATURAL SPACES † JUST A STONE'S THROW AWAY Ontario's resort properties are a perfect home base for exploring spectacular scenery and abundant recreational opportunities. Known for its natural beauty, the green hillsides, wilderness areas and small towns form the character of the province. There are hundreds of kilometres of trails to explore, hills to climb, lakes to fi sh and dozens of natural experiences that are unhurried, unspoiled and unassuming. The Westwind Inn is an all-inclusive country inn just 90 minutes from Toronto. It marries hospitality, privacy and comfort in a year-round couples/adult setting surrounded by the tranquil Kawartha Highlands. Located on a half-kilometre of picturesque waterfront, and surrounded by thousands of acres of parkland, Westwind's outdoor playground includes biking, hiking and boating opportunities at its front door. A stay includes the use of canoes, kayaks, non-motorized watercraft, bikes and, in winter, snowshoes ( ). Located in Ontario's Heartland, the romantic Elm Hurst Inn & Spa is close to walking trails or a stop to sample local fl avours at the nearby St. Jacobs Farmers' Market. After a day exploring the region, a massage or body treatment at the Inn's Aveda Spa is the ideal way to experience bliss. Seasonal spa packages and specials are tailor-made for couples and girlfriend getaways ( ). The four-season lakefront cottages at Walker Lake Resort are a convenient launching point for exploring the lakes, trails and wilderness of Algonquin and Arrowhead provincial parks (www. ).
