I had been looking for a heLth and well being retreat where I could go for some quiet, learning, and healing. Although I was familiar with Grail Springs, I had thought it was more of an inn/spa. It really is a quiet place to retreat to when you want to truly focus on your own health and well being. I... More

I spent two nights at Grail Springs after a very busy and stressful month. I was not exactly sure what to expect, but as I entered the driveway I knew I was in the right place. The property is absolutely beautiful and kept immaculately. The hotel is steps away from the lake - which was beautiful clear water (I swam... More

Over the past few years, I've been going through various health issues and was looking for a wellness resort to help repair & rejuvenate me. Grail Springs was recommended to me by my RMT as he's had clients that raved about how Grail Springs was "life transforming" & "magical" (similar to some reviews I've read here on Tripadvisor). So my... More

I was told to visit Grail Springs, as I am the assistant of a business consultant who had nothing but amazing things to say, amongst the various services done. More importantly, my friend/colleague was asked to observe and give an overview of the property, services, staff, operations, functions, store, rooms,food service, and meal choices personally by Madeleine Marentette, the founder....

This was my second time going to Grail Springs, but this time I brought my husband with me. I loved the classes, yoga, saunas, guest speakers, meals and outdoor hikes. You get to meet wonderful and interesting people. The first time I went, I was alone and it was an amazing experience. I felt revitalized, calm and like I could... More

To start off with, I had a wonderful time at Grail Springs and definitely met my objective of disconnecting from the world, recharging, practicing mindfulness, and reconnecting with myself. The setting is lovely and I enjoyed what they had to offer, including speakers, films, canoeing on the lake, and yoga. HOWEVER, for a resort in this price range, there were... More
