As autumn steadily transforms into a snowy winter wonderland here in Northern Ontario, snowmobilers, skiers, and snowshoers flock to the Elk Lake area for peaceful, secluded, and exhilarating wintertime escapes. Elk Lake Wilderness Resort is one of the premier romantic Ontario winter getaways for many Canadian couples. Whether you care to admit it or not, winter takes a toll on many Northerners. That’s why it’s imperative to escape the city for an extended weekend or week-long stay in the serene Northern Ontario wilderness near the Montreal River with your best friend.
Rustic, Romantic Cabins
First and foremost, the family-owned Elk Lake Wilderness Resort’s dedicated staff prides themselves on providing modern, clean, and comfortable cabins. Part of what makes our wilderness resort so romantic is the rustic charm, peaceful seclusion, and onsite saunas and hot tub. Wake up each morning and brew a fresh pot of Tim Hortons. Whip together made-from-scratch omelets and bacon. Watch a cheesy romance and a favorite holiday flick on your satellite television. Boil a fresh batch of hot cocoa, throw on a jacket, and watch the sunset each evening from your private deck. All of our guests have the option to choose a homecooked dinner meal plans which are delivered right to your cottage! If there is one thing that always amazes our guests during romantic Ontario winter getaways, it’s the homecooked meals.
