Great Food/Wine/Room for Honeymoon

The Boss Aug 17, 2006 12:07 AM

I know the question is broad but...Any recommendation for a honeymoon getaway with great food and accommodation. If you know of any unique idea that would be great.
Thanks in advance

      Just a reminder that Chowhound is focused on food, and a request that your replies focus on food, as well. Accommodations are off topic for these boards, so replies that focus on them instead of the food and drink will be removed.

        A great place to go would be Inn on the Twenty in Jordan(very close to Niagara on the Lake). They are partnered with Cave Springs wine and Inn on the Twenty restaurant. It is a quaint little area with the winery and restaurant next to the hotel. Lots to do, including wine tours, great local cheese shops and some new restaurants have opened up in the area recently that are getting good reviews (check out this month's edition on Toronto Life). Another option would be to head to Muskoka and stay at Taboo. They have a good restaurant and a decent wine list. Hope this helps!

          Check into the Four Seasons and order room service.

            The Domain of Killien has a good reputation. It's website notes
            "We create a different five-course menu every night, offering classics of French cuisine as well as lighter fare infused with seasonal and regional flavours.

            We only use the freshest ingredients, along with organically grown herbs from our own gardens. Duck and salmon are smoked on-site. To complement your meal an imaginative wine list offers you a great choice of savoury “vins de pays” and fine vintages from Bordeaux and Burgundy.'

              I've heard that the food at the Bear Trail Inn (Whitney, ON) has improved VASTLY over the last while - this is where we honeymooned 7 years ago -- wasn't superb then but several people we have spoken with say that have really upped that.

              Also, Irwin Inn on Stoney Lake has just acquired a new chef (formerly of Bymark in TO) and he is doing new and good things there...

                I second Bear Trails Couples resort in Whitney. Dinner is served in a beautiful dining room and there is a dress code. Or you can have the food brought to your room or cabin. ;)

                We enjoyed the food a lot, the steak was delicious and the best part was dessert, an amazing flourless chocolate cake that I still dream about.

                  Was this recent?

                  My husband and I are going back there for our anniversary and this was our only concern about going ... the food I remember includes blueberry pie that clearly came from IGA.... UGH

                    We went two years ago. The dessert definitely did not taste like it came from IGA, it was delicious!

                    Hopefully they still have it on the menu when you go! They even listed it as a specialty of the resort. And they go fast too, one night I got the very last piece.

                Niagara on the Lake is a great honeymoon spot! We just recently stayed at "The Shaw Club Hotel" and it was amazing! We ate at their restaurant,"Zee's," and it was good but I've had better. They had an excellent wine list, but lousy service. I would suggest staying at the Shaw Club, but eating elsewhere. I keep hearing great reviews about The Stone Road Grille...we're going to try that next time we visit!

                  It's just outside of Ontario but Hotel Lac Carling had really great food when we were there for a long weekend, and the hotel's staff obviously really cared about giving great service. It was excellent. It was two years ago so maybe someone else has a more recent review though.
