Outdoors: Couple winter getaways in Algoma

The perfect way for couples to relax and rejuvenate together

Sometimes we just need a break from the daily routines of our lives. Sure, a tropical holiday is always a nice rest, but it's not always easy to get away that far for that long. This region has super escapes made for the perfect three to four-day weekend sneak-away or mid-week refresher.

Many cottage resorts are open year round, offering warm and cozy cottages nestled in our beautiful winter wonderland.

We have many types of cottage resort experiences to have a relaxing, romantic getaway; housekeeping cabins where you can cook together, or a pampered environment and have the meals cooked for you in a main lodge.

Bring your cross country skis and snowshoes to explore the area and pick out animal tracks in the snow. Relax in hot tubs and saunas, then roll in the snow, and you bring your skates because some cottage resorts build skating rinks out on the lake!

Enjoy the solitude together on a peaceful remote lake in Algoma Country ice fishing for lake trout, walleye and northern pike.

Searchmont Resort offers an impressive 750-ft vertical drop and long runs (18 trails) which are perfect for partners looking for beginner, intermediate, or challenging skiing. Skiers who stay slope-side in one of the chalets will find meals served in the cafeteria, full service lounge, access to the hot tub and sauna.

Rentals are available for performance skis, helmets and snowshoes. You can also stay in Searchmont at Mountainview Lodge, Driftwood Valley Chalets and if you're looking for an urban setting there are a wide variety of hotels and motels in Sault Ste. Marie.
