I suppose we all ask ourselves what our expectations are before booking a getaway. Ours was quiet time away from the city commotion of New Years celebrations for the first time. This was to be a healthy, peaceful, rewarding time away for me, the hubby, and our 2 dogs... and that it absolutely was.
Our expectation was to stay on the property and leave our vehicle in park mode the entire 4 nights - from Dec 29 to Jan 2, and this we did. We arrived with the appropriate food for the appliances available to us in Leopold, snowshoes, hiking gear, and our x-country skis. The ~60 acres was picturesque with all the snow that was dumped on the area, so needless to say, we took full advantage of the gear right here on the property with our 2 dogs off lease each day. Watching my 2 city dogs hop around in almost knee high snow like a couple of wild deer for hours was bliss.
When not outside breathing in the fresh air in the day, we got through 2 seasons of a tv show at night through our laptop, with some wine of course.... bliss again.
4 cabins on ~60 acres....you could get away with not seeing anyone if you really wanted to, but I suggest to share some stories with Karen & Christophe - they give out a great vibe and you'll feel their genuine desire for you to enjoy your stay.
I feel that Wellnesste can fulfill many different expectations. I thought the property snowed over was picture perfect, the summer pics look amazing. I'll definitely be back for another wonderful experience.
Oh ya, the bathroom being outside the cabin - it was exceptionally clean, it heated quickly, and it was close by. For all the pros this place had to offer, if this is the only con???.... I'll gladly take it! :)
