The Best Seasons of Fall

No doubt, autumn is a beautiful time for a getaway, but it encompasses a broad stretch of time that includes many micro-seasons. So when should you come for a getaway? Well that depends on what you want to see and do. Here's our breakdown...

Mid September: Great hiking weather, sometimes even swimming weather; no bugs; no crowds; fall colours are starting.

Late September: Fall colours are really going good and working up to peak (or hitting peak in the higher elevations); great time to hike the hardwood forests; hit the trails that take you to viewpoints looking out over the tops of trees; take lots of photos; stay up late and watch the stars.

Early to mid October: Colours peak (sooner in Algonquin Park, later in the rest of the region); hear the leaves swish around your feet as you walk the trails and look up as the colour moves lower in the understory; slow country drives to take it all in; Thanksgiving long weekend lets you get a longer break to really shake the city off.

Mid to late October: Maples have finished their show and the tamaracks are putting on the Golden Encore; invigorating walks; toasty fires.

November: discover the subtle beauty of the November forest; save more with Quiet Season rates in effect; no crowds; time to relax, catch up on reading, get away from it all; Girlfriends' Getaway weekend in Huntsville.


Most Dates in September and October:
$240 for a 2-night stay

Thanksgiving Long Weekend:
$280 for a 2-night stay OR $375 for a 3-night stay

$220 for a 2-night stay

Prices include breakfast and accommodation for two people in a Coach House Room. Add $10/night for the Homestead Room. Add 13% HST. 


Find available rooms in the Coach House here. If you don't find an available room for your dates, email us to find out if the Homestead Room is available.
