This week Neal and I drove up north to get a little work-life balance. We were able to stay up at the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa to do a review, and then had a full day at Spa Rosseau where we enjoyed the amenities (hello, hot tub) and Neal got a therapeutic massage. So needed, especially before we enter one of our busiest seasons! It was the perfect balance of getting shoots done and an escape just to turn off and be present with one another and being in nature is sure to ground you. It helps you be more mindful and instantly relaxes you. The property is just gorgeous (some new renovations as well), and it’s located on beautiful Lake Rosseau around 2-ish hours outside of Toronto.

They have a great bundle called the Muskoka Escape package where you receive a dining credit, spa credit, breakfast for two and a bottle of wine for a great price! It’s an awesome deal, so if you’re thinking of doing a little trip with your girls or your special guy, you should definitely check it out. Here are more photos from our stay…

The JW Muskoka was all ready for fall, with pumpkins and decor at the entrance. It was so cozy!

The newly renovated gathering place where you can grab a bite (loved the chicken sandwich for lunch) and look out to the beautiful terrace views!

Hello handsome! Neal and I hanging out on the patio in our room.

There are two pools and two hot tubs on the property. The women’s locker room also had it’s own hot tub that I got to enjoy while Neal got a massage…

Beautiful lake views! // Outfit details: Sweater // Denim // Boots

Mornings on our balcony reading and taking in the crisp air and gorgeous foliage.

We did a boat cruise (which the hotel offers on their scheduled activity days) that was so lovely! We saw the most gorgeous cottages and this precious church.
