There is more than snow in Northern Ontario during the winter season! Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa in Timmins is known for its impressive lodging and exquisite food. The 175 acre resort & spa boasts some of the best scenery in Timmins (I would have to agree), yet is located minutes from downtown Timmins. The resort & spa is made up of one main building (resort rooms, restaurant, spa, conference rooms, wedding facility, etc…) with an extension of 5 stunning chalets, and a nature park. Timmins’ first ever wellness spa Le Spa Grande Nature and rustic high class restaurant The Voyageur Dining Room makes Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa stand out and shine in Ontario’s Northern city.
The resort’s motto: “we want you to experience and feel nature the way it is intended to be” is bang on. Visiting Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa was an escape from the urban center. Being surrounded by nature, the tranquility on the property, and the nearby wild animals makes me think I am miles away from civilization. The country-feel of the location makes Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa a breath of fresh away and a home away from home. Whether I was enjoying my ride on a tractor drawn wagon through the nature park getting up close to elk, bison, moose, and deer, relaxing in the outdoor Nordic baths, or enjoying a delicious meal by the fireplace in the restaurant, Cedar Meadows Resort and Spa made me feel right at home. Cedar Meadows is the place to be because it has the amenities of a “resort & spa”, but with a more comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Rather than staying in the main lodge in one of the various types of rooms, opting to stay at one of the five quaint and cozy chalets provides guests an additional option (possibly a cheaper one too). The chalets have the amenities a home would have, a wrap-around porch, and a stunning view overlooking a pond in the “backyard”. It’s the perfect getaway retreat!
The one of a kind restaurant offers diners an experience of executive taste, while proving traditional dishes with the heritage and customs of Northern Ontario’s culture and legacy stirred in. The up-scale, cottage-like feel of the restaurant is relaxing and private. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
My meal was made to order with the most colourful and fresh ingredients. The freshly chopped herbs and spices topped the dishes off nicely. The restaurant staff were prompt, knowledgeable, and eager to make my dining experience enjoyable. Not once did I feel rushed throughout my meal, as I like to take my time to enjoy the food and converse with company.The hotel manager stopped by my table at the end of my meal to ensure everything was alright. Everything was perfect! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dining experiencing.
I can’t wait to go back to Cedar Meadows Resort & Spa to experience more of what the property has to offer.
