Grail Springs has created such an experience. As an... 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

I happened to stumble on Grail Springs while I was searching for retreat places all over North and South America, little did I know there was this magical place right under my nose. I booked a 10 day detox and energize package because I wanted a fresh start for the spring. I can't stress enough that this is not just... More

My husband and I spent a night at Grail Springs while travelling in the fall. This is a health retreat with a wonderful alkaline eating menu. It is not a roadside hotel. It is a very serene and peaceful place set off the main roads in a forest on a lake. The accomodations were 5 star and the staff were... More
