A couple of weeks ago, my friend and I headed to Ste. Anne’s Spa for a Day Spa Getaway! We were so excited for a day of pampering and relaxation, or relaxing kid-free! It’s always nice to have some girl time once in a while, and what better way to do that than at a spa!
Ste. Anne’s Spa is a little gem located just 1.5 hours outside of Toronto. Once we arrived, we were just in awe with how gorgeous the property was. It’s situated on over 400 acres, with views of Lake Ontario, and rolling hills. It felt like we were miles away from everything, nestled in an old little town in the Country Side. It was so private, quiet, and scenic.
Our Day Spa Getaway included so much for the price. We got a 3-course lunch, afternoon tea, $120 spa & wellness allowance, use of all the facilities, and use of a signature Ste. Anne’s robe for the day. When booking our services, they were so accommodating to our needs. They arranged our services to be at the same times, so we weren’t waiting for each other throughout out the day. We also asked for specific times to have our lunch, and afternoon tea, and they made that happen for us as well. They even called a couple of days before to confirm everything, and asked if we had any questions!
As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly staff, and given a cute bag that included our itinerary for the day, and a robe. Check- in is 8:30am, so make sure you arrive on time. You have a little bit of paperwork to fill out, and they also take you on a tour of the facility. They show you where to wait for your upcoming services, where all the facilities are located, where the dinning room is, where the change rooms are located, and how to use the lockers to store your personal belongings.
We couldn’t of had a more perfect day! There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, all sunshine. It was probably one of the hottest days of the summer! So, the first thing we did before we got into our robes, and before it got any hotter, was go for a hike. They had 3 hiking trails to choose from, which consisted of 3 different distances. It was such a nice hike, so quiet, and beautiful scenery. Once we finished our hike, we got our bathing suits on, and went to the pool to cool off!
The outdoor pool was amazing! It was huge! It was heated as well. We swam in the pool for a bit, and then laid and relaxed on their comfy lounge chairs. It was so peaceful! The views were gorgeous all around. Laying by the pool we were looking at the gorgeous spa, if we turned around, behind us was nothing but beautiful rolling hills.
Here is the room where we waited for our spa services. We made sure we were here 10 mins before our appointments. They have lemon and lime water to sip on, granola, and mini biscotti’s to eat while we waited for our names to be called. The 2 services I got were the Coconut Breeze, and the Swedish Massage. They were both amazing, and I would definitely get them again!
In between our spa services, we definitely loved using the Eucalyptus Steam room, and the Fieldstone Grotto. The grotto area had a hot tub, a plunge pool, and a lap pool.
I just couldn’t get over how stunning the grounds were! Gorgeous flowers everywhere, a beautiful fountain, gazebos, hammocks, and Muskoka chairs everywhere to sit and relax, and enjoy the views of the rolling hills.
The food was fantastic! Lunch consisted of a 3 course meal. You had a ton of options to choose from, and it also included unlimited juice drinks.
Afternoon tea was fabulous! We each got an assortment of mini sandwiches, fruit, and pastries. It was so good!
Once our Spa Day was complete, we decided to stay for dinner before heading home. It wasn’t included in our Day Spa Package, but we really didn’t want to leave, lol! We loved staying in our robes all day long, being pampered, and relaxing.
Our dinner consisted of a 3-course meal as well. For all of our meals, the presentation was on point!! Everything was so fresh and cooked perfectly!
If you haven’t been to Ste. Anne’s Spa, I definitely recommend visiting in the near future. They even offer overnight packages as well, if you wanted to stay for a couple of days. It’s perfect for a girls days, or a romantic getaway!

I would love a Ste. Anne’s Spa Getaway with my husband. We just celebrated out 30th
wedding anniversary on August 15th and this would be a real treat. We are both busy with
our day jobs as well as running a small farm, so don’t usually get away till all the hay and
crops are in. Would love the relaxation and amazing food.
I would love a spa day with my mom, who is my best friend. I have an active busy toddler who just had surgery and it’s definitely been a trying few weeks. My mom is the most selfless, hardworking person I know who never takes any time for herself – she deserves this ❤️
Tania mcewan says
I would love this please! I have 2 very busy little ones 3 and 18 months. Definitely overdo for a vacation! I would take my mom as she has been such a great help and support!! She deserves this so much too!!
I have always wanted to go to St. Anne’s I have heard it is so worth it ! I would take my husband for a much needed getaway . We have never been away together since having our twins 11 years ago and we are long over do for some “us” time . I would love to see him relax and be pampered for just a little while and destress. Xo
Patti Lebold says
I have never been to anything like this beautiful place before! I would love some down time, as my work (group home for individuals with behavioural issues) pretty much drains me.. I would love to take my Hubby as he would love to experience something new as well!!
I would love this spa getaway, as a full time single mom working full time nights as a Nurse in the NICU I don’t get any “me” time, so these two days would be soooo amazing! Good luck everyone!
Ashley Flannery says
I would love to win the getaway for me and my good friend. We were both teen parents who worked our butts off owning our own successful businesses both of us rarely take any time off from being mom’s and business women a weekend of rest and relaxation would do us both a wonder of good and we would appreciate it so much!
I would love to be able to treat my mother to a spa day. She is recently separated from my father and has been left to take care of my 3 younger siblings, the house, the bills etc all on her own. She has watched my son (now 16 months) from the day he was born twice a week to allow me to keep my job as my husband and I need the money. She does everything for everyone and also puts herself last. She needs to be pampered and have a relaxing day all about her!
Nikki Fisher says
I would love to win this for myself but more importantly so I can bring my best friend along who has had the weight of the world on her shoulders caring for two young children and two aging and sick parents. Being everything to everyone can be so hard and everyone needs an escape even if only for a few hours!
I would love to visit Ste Anne’s Spa with my husband. We are very busy parents to 3 wonderful children (ages 5,3,1) as well as working our full time jobs outside of the house. Our 7 year wedding anniversary was on August 7th but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances and a really difficult string of bad luck, we have not been able to celebrate. This would be a dream come true 🙂
Claire Noseworthy says
We would love to have a spa experience…I have heard so much about St. Anne’s spa and have yet to go. Our anniversary is coming up …13 years Sept 4… How great would this be to surprise my husband.
Leeann Bennett says
this mama needs a getaway and some relaxing, plus i’d love to get away with my husband (our anniversary is in two weeks and we need more date nights).
I would love to win this! My husband and I just welcomed our 2nd baby on Monday and he was so great with me in the hospital that I would love to spend some quality “us” time together!
Tracy Fournier says
I need a spa day because.. well who doesn’t? Life is busy between working full time, two kids, family activities etc. I think everyone needs a break some time to relax – and it is definitely not high on the priority list for most people when planning out their time. I would bring my sister in law with me 🙂
Thanks for the opportunity – was great to read your experience there.
Would love to win a spa day and take my fiance with me. I just had my son December 29th our first child and with my fiance and I just getting a house it’s been a stressful 8 months financially and physically on both of us..from my working 7 days a week every week to support our family to me having to go back to work early from mat leave. A nice little get away for us would be GREATLY appreciated we have been through soo much this past year !
Would love to win a day spa trip for my mother and myself! She will be celebrating two years of sobriety this September and I think it would be the perfect gift for her to show her how proud I am of her and how amazing of a mother and grandmother she has been!
I’d take my friend because we are both hard working moms and deserve a break!
Samantha Ring says
This looks and sounds so amazing !!!! My sons turning 2 shortly and he’s a busy guywhich keeps me a busy gal ! I’ve been saying lately that I’ve never had a massage or spa day or anything like that before in my life but boy how I could use one right about now. If love some almond time with the hubby where we could relax and really appreciate each other and all the hard work we put into making our amazing little family. ❤
Samantha Ring says
Edit – I’d love some alone time *** thats what happens when trying to comment with a toddler pulling on you legs lol
Amanda James says
Ste Anne’s spa has been on my bucket list since I was 19 years old.
Unfortunately due to finances and life happenings, I have never been able to afford it on my own and never had the gall to ask anyone else to gift this experience to me.
I recently suffered a huge medical emergency which landed me in the hospital and away from my 2 beautiful children for 3 days. Due to putting everyone else’s needs first, I neglected my own and now have something called HCM which stands for Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It means the thickening of the muscles around my heart due to severe high blood pressure.
Going to the spa would kill two birds with one stone. Complete an item off my bucket list and provide me and my best friend Erin Taylor much needed kid free and relaxation time
Thank you for this great chance to win
Daniella Jennings says
I would love a spa day to share with my mom. She does so much for us, and she totally deserves it! Plus I’m rxcpecting my second baby in November, so I’m in definitive need of some pampering and alone time!
Thanks for this great opportunity!
I would love to win a spa trip! I have just had baby #2 18 days ago and its been exhausting and stressful adjusting to two children all while running my household while ny husband is at work. I have family members who have been numerous times to your location and have heard AMAZING things about your location and services! I would love to win and surprise my husband with a relaxing day for us to share together. It has been well over 4 years since we have had a date just the two of us 🙂
Thank you for this oppourtunity!
I would absolutely love a spa getaway with my hubby! We have two kids 1 and 3 years old that keep us busy! We also work full time and commute everyday. Our baby sitting situation is close to nonexistant which makes it hard for us to get out and unwind. Your pictures look amazing!!!
I can totally use a getaway – I’m a busy working mom of 3 active toddlers – Triplets!! Juggling between a demanding managerial job and 3 kids it would be nice to get some time to pamper myself 🙂 I would love to bring my mom with me, as a token of appreciation for how much she is helping me with the kids on weekends. Don’t think I could’ve keep myself sane without her help!
Shauna Robinson says
I would be so grateful for St. Anne’s Spa Getaway with my oldest friend, Sharyn. I’m a single mom of three and breaks come very sparingly these days, I barely find time to have a 10 min shower, nevermind, anything else. Its very challenging having 3 little girls so young, but I wouldn’t change if for anything. Sharyn will be soon married to the love of her life and could definitely use some relaxation before the big day on Sept 23. We would both be amazed and relieved to have some down time to just be pampered!
Would love a spa day for me and my hubby because we haven’t been away together since before baby was born 17 months ago. It would be lovely to relax and reconnect 🙂
Laura B says
I would love to win a Spa Day Getaway for myself and my mother. She has never been to St. Anne’s Spa and a spa day would be a perfect way to celebrate both my 30th birthday coming up in September and her 60th birthday later on this year. I’m also currently 19 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and could really use a great massage!
As a busy Mom of three young boys under six years old, and with a busy career in health care, I would love to win this spa retreat, to go with my Mom. My husband recently lost his job, so I can’t imagine a spa day will be in my near future sadly! Winning this would be AMAZING! thank you 🙂
Monique Nelson says
I would love a spa getaway with my sister to have some time to Relax without the kids. We rarely get time for ourselves so this would be great.
I’d love to go for a spa day with my mom! She works so hard and helps out so much with my little guys (3 and 1), I’d love to be able to treat her to a well-deserved break and some pampering—and I would certainly appreciate a little pampering for myself as well!
Sarah C Smith says
I’m 28 weeks pregnant with my second child. I had back surgery last year, and from that it’s made a very rough pregnancy. Would love to have some pampering done to help relieve the pains and stress! Would be a great babymoon for my husband and I ♡
I would love to treat a great friend to a spa day. She has had a difficult year and could really use the break. We both have young kids and a day away without any cares in the world would be amazing!
I am recently separated with my husband after only 7 months of marriage. He decided he didn’t love me anymore and wants a divorce. Since then I’ve had to sell my besutoful home and move in with my parents with my 20 month son. I bought a new house and just when I thought things were looking up, the bank tried to take it away from me. Luckily I was able to figure it out and after 2 days of being in my new home, I had a sewage flood. It happened 3 times and it’s been a never ending nightmare. I could REALLY uses get away to de stress and I would bring my mom because she has helped me SO much emotionally and financially and is always there when I’ve needed her.
This is so kind of you to do ? I would love the chance to win so my husband and I can share some fine together. He is working to jobs and we just had out second little one 3 weeks ago. I am home most days alone with a new born and 3 year old. Would love to reconnect with my hubby ?
Renata Davies says
I would love a St Anne’s getaway! I would take hubby, because as much as I need a getaway, he needs it too. In fact he deserves it. I had a stroke last year and this man of mine has stepped up to the plate, mr Mom, Doctor and overall a great husband. I would love for us to really have some us time. Good luck to everyone.
I would love a getaway to Ste. Anne’s Spa to be able to sit back and relax in peace away from crazy daily ‘life’. I would bring my Mom along with me as she’s always on the go and never has time to sit back and relax. Between working 12-14 hour days, for weeks on end, she could definitely use a well deserved day away. Every parent deserves a little time to regenerate and as a mother myself, I couldn’t think of a better place to do this than beautiful Ste. Anne’s.
Thanks for the opportunity to enter 🙂
I am fulltime nursing student in my 30’s and a sole guardian to my 12 yr old Son.
Exhaustion is an under statement but in the end it will be worth it.
My Mom is my main support and my best friend, without her in my corner I wouldn’t be who I am today or able to achieve my dreams of becoming a nurse.
She watches my Son constantly while I’m in classes or at a study group.
We both could use this amazing day of relaxation and pampering ❤
Brandy Westerdyk says
I could really use a spa day! I am a busy working mom of two young girls. I would love to take my husband, but I think I would take my best friend who is almost due with her first baby. She’s going to need a getaway soon as well and we’ve been talking about what we could do for a getaway together sometime in the near future. This sounds PERFECT for us!
Elle Primeau says
This last year has been a total rollercoaster for me. As of November 2016 I am now a single mom of 3, working 3 jobs to keep my head above water and continue to give my children the life they deserve.
I work hard, and I work a lot. What time I do get off is spent being a full time mother. I don’t spend money on myself because it always makes me feel guilty that I am taking away from my kids. Meaning something like St Anne’s is not something I could do for myself.
I would never have gotten through this last year without the support of my amazing big sister.
I would love an opportunity to treat her to a day of pampering. We both deserve it.
Thank you for giving this chance, I have heard amazing things about St Anne’s.
Great blog! I would love to win this spa day and I would take my mom! I just recently became a single mom and it’s been a major adjustment. I would love this day to relax and rejuvinate. Thanks for the opportunity!
I’d love a spa getaway!
Being a mom of two small kiddies makes it hard to squeeze in some much needed couple time with my husband.
Dying to get away with him to have some romantic time away.
Julia Irwin says
Would love, love , love to take my sister in law for this getaway! She has had a difficult year and could use the treat! I would also love a break from my 3 kids at the end of a busy summer, before starting another new year as a Kindergarten teacher! September has lots of tears in my job so going in relaxed would be a bonus! ?
Lisa Crompton says
I’dobe a spa day because I’m almost 35 weeks pregnant and I’m going to need one after the baby is born! Pregnancy is exhausting lol ? (And I know newborns aren’t any less exhausting!)
Ste. Anne’s Spa is my happy place. I haven’t been for quite some time though, as life has gotten busy with wedding planning, a 15-month old, a full-time job as a kindergarten Montessori teacher and taking online courses to become and RECE! Life is busy!! How I would love to visit the spa and escape the made world for a short time!
We would love a getaway! With 5 kids running around (2,4,6,8,10) we don’t get a chance to enjoy each other and relax! I’ve always wanted to go to St. Anne’s!
Mary Da Silva says
I would absolutely love to treat my mom to this wonderful experience. She is the most generous and loving lady. She watches my 2 little boys while I work and never asks for anything in return. She does everything for everyone else and I would love to do this for her.
A spa day would be amazing for this over stressed Momma! Both kids starting new schools,financially trying to keep my family afloat and dealing with kidney desiese has left me strapped in every way possible! Id bring my girlfriend who is running her own business with four kids under 10 in toe. She is soo deserving of some time to recoop and relax before her busy season starts. Shes been there for me and Id love to return the favour!
i would love this for my husband and myself. we are celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary on august 26. it would be a nice break from 4 kids and his very stressful contracting job. i have been looking into a spa getaway but can never afford to do it. this would be the best gift anyone can give. thank you for the opportunity!!!
Jenn Tesluk says
I need this! I am committed to my job at a national children’s charity and have an 18 month old son who I absolutely ADORE. My husband works shift work so he’s not home usually when we are, so there’s a lot of solo parenting. None of our family live very close by (2+ hours for my inlaws) and my mother has been my grandmother’s caregiver since 2012 after a severe stroke.
I have not even gotten my nails done since well before I had my son. He doesn’t sleep through the night so I manage on about 5 hours of sleep a night, work 9 hours a day (just so I can have a day off to myself every few weeks), and have my son to myself all weekend, every weekend.
I would bring my mom who hasn’t had a break since my grandmother moved in with her. She needs pampering desperately!
Nicola Wade says
I would love to win this spa getaway !! Me and my hubby are celebrating our 10 yr anniversary in a few weeks and this would be an amazing getaway to celebrate kid-less ! Thank you for the opportunity !
I would love a getaway with my Mom. She’s our backbone in this crazy stage of parenting and I’d love to show her our appreciation. As a Mom of 4 kids under 9years, I could use a mini getaway to recharge too!
Sounds like an amazing day. I would definitely go with my Sister. We both could use a ‘moms day off’.
Samantha Silver-Rohrer says
Get up, get myself and my 3 and 5 year old boys ready for school/daycare, go to work, run errands at lunch, come home to spend some time with my family and work some more to get ready for the next day – collapse into bed and repeat… I would take my fellow hard working mom with me! Would love this chance as much as any of these other deserving people 🙂
Andrea Arkell says
This year has been a stressful one. After years of saving we finally were ready to buy a house right at the moment the market went crazy, after lots of lost bids and sleepless nights we found our home but outside of the area we wanted. SO we are in a bit of a period of readjusting to life, renos and a longer commute. My hubby works downtown and has to travel 1.5 hours each way to work meaning he is gone before we wake up and for a late dinner. I have a pretty hectic work schedule and have to ensure to make daycare pickup and do all the morning and evening running around. Would love to have a night/day to just relax and spend time with eachother 🙂
michelle tremblett says
Wow this is a incredible prize, My best friend and I both work in Health care (Long term care) and we are always aching and exhausted haha. We often put others before ourselves and this would be such an amazing getaway just to catch a breather and relax a little bit. I’ve came across Ste. Annes a few times but have never been, it looks so incredible. Good luck everyone 🙂
Eileen O'Brien says
Three kids under 5 and a full time job make for one busy, tired Mom. I would love to relax and energize with my husband. He’s the glue in our family and would love a day of switching off, not cutting up tiny people’s meals, cleaning up after said tiny people, or being their human gym!
Wow this is so Amazing of you to do this for a lucky someone.
I would love to Take my husband here. Since we have had our 3rd daughter on Dec27th 2015 we have not had a date or time to ourselves. would love to take him here so he can get pampered and we can relax together. He is an amazing husband and father he never has a break I would love to surprise him with some like this because he deserves it.
I would love a spa getaway with my husband. Since having our baby boy 10 months ago, we have been very busy with running our new business with very little time to ourselves. This trip would be such a welcome break from the busy-ness of the fall season starts up again.
Dana stevens says
I would love to enjoy this experience with my Mom. This spa day would mean the world to me, a nice reprieve from the busy life of a newly single mom who works full time. It would be nice to have this to look forward to as I was supposed to be married this September.
I have been a stay at home mom for 4 years I am with my kids 24/7 hubby works late. I have no time for myself. I would take my friend who works really hard too.
While I have been to the spa before, if I win I would love to take my husband. He is a hard working man who always takes time out for his kids. He is always making time to take the kids to and from school and be involved in all of their after school activities.
He’s always pushing me to go take care of myself but never does the same for himself.
He deserves a nice massage at Ste Anne’s and I know the only way he will go is if he wins it!
Thanks for sharing this opportunity with us.
Daniella Freeman says
I would love to take my husband! We have two little daughters (1 and 3.5) and I haven’t slept through the night since our oldest was born! 🙂
Thanks for the opportunity!
Melissa Cammack says
If I were to win the spa package I would absolutely bring my mother, as a small thank you for the tremendous support she’s given me over the last 2 years in particular. I had my daughter in February of 2016 and like a lot of new moms I had a hard time adjusting, especially since my husband works 10 hour days and commutes 2 hours each way. If it wasn’t for my mom coming over during the mornings to help me with my newborn daughter and allow me to shower, eat and sleep there is absolutely no way I would have been able to adjust so well. Now that my daughter is a year and a half I know the reason I’m a good mom is because of her example and her help in those early days. Like any mom I could use a day of relaxation and I’m sure my own mom, who still has 3 daughters living at home, could use a break as well!
I would love to visit Ste. Anne’s with my older sister. She is a nurse and spends most of her time helping other people and little time on herself. She often works with people when they are at their worst and about to pass away. She recently had some kids that she worked with pass away and it was really hard on her. She also has always been very protective of me and is my best friend. I think she deserves some time for herself because I know that she has been feeling very worn out lately. It would be great to surprise her with some spa time (she loves facials).
Myself, my husband, and two children are currently moving from my husband’s childhood home (not by choice). An emotional roller coaster, to say the least. We are in between two homes – my husband’s childhood home and a rental. Next week, we move our daughter an hour away for her first year at University (I need therapy and a spa day for this reason alone!).
My son was bullied terribly two years ago (punched, kicked, bloody nose, skinned knees and hands, cyber bullying, etc.) and we moved him last year to a great school. We now have to move him again. His anxiety level is through the roof.
We decided to rent, as the real estate market has been scary, but we recently fell upon a house for sale that we couldn’t ignore. So, we bought it and are supposed to move early Fall.
We’re juggling 5 jobs (my husband has 3, my daughter and I each have 1), my son’s sports and supporting him with the moves, transitioning my daughter to live on her own, 4 places to live (childhood home, family rental, student rental, and purchased home). It’s a lot to take in and manage.
This spa day would be perfect for my husband and I. He’s not one who would jump at the chance to spend a day at the spa, but I’m positive that he wouldn’t regret it if he did it. I have never pampered myself aside from a once a month pedicure that is 2 months overdue.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to enter.
Jennifer Fahey says
I would love this spa getaway!! Ive been going through a rough separation for the past 10 months, and rather than getting better things are just getting worse. I have two young kids who are in my care most of the time so I don’t get many breaks or time for myself. This would be an amazing stress reliever!! I’d like to take my sister-in-law to give us some girl time together as she lives 4 hours away!
Laura Ryan says
I just had a baby 6 weeks ago and I have been dying for a spa day since befor my little lady was born. My husband wanted to gift me one but unfortunately we got the news that our rescue dog had cancer a week after we brought our little lady home from from the hospital. After multiple tests and trips to the vet to try save our boy a spa day is far from our budget. Would love to treat my hubby to this as he has been working long hrs hours to get us back on our feet. Our 5 year anniversary is in two months so this would be perfect!
Lindsay Graham says
I would love to win the St. Anne’s spa package for my Mom and I! My mom is always doing things for others and could really use some time to be pampered herself! I think she would really enjoy this! I would really enjoy this as well as I haven’t had any time away from my daughter since she was born 2 years ago! She is my world but a little bit of me time would be so beneficial in so many ways! I have heard such wonderful things about this spa and really need to check it out! Thank you so much for the giveaway!
I’d love to win a spa getaway for my husband and I! We have a one year old and haven’t had a night out alone since she was born! He works his butt off at work and I’d love to be able to treat him to a nice relaxing getaway!!!! We are celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary in September (14 years together!)
Fawn Skinner says
I would love to bring my mom. She has had a rough year between surgery to remove part of her lung for cancer, chemo and now she is about to start a clinical trial as the cancer has not gone away. She is currently stable and it would be a great surprise to treat her with this before we start the trial. We have never been to a spa together or even a place that sounds as nice as this.
Antonella Cappello says
I would love a spa day because I’m a stay at home mama of two boys (3.5 and 14 months) who needs a break! I know this sounds so typical but I also work from home so I feel like I never get out. I would love a day to myself to just relax and recollect. I would bring my best friend who works her butt off to provide for her two babes. Sometimes us mamas forget to make time for ourselves and our well being and I feel this would be perfect for me ❤️
Thank you for this opportunity this is something so wonderful! Good luck to everyone
I would be so grateful for a spa day with my husband. We recently moved across the country to come back to my family and where I grew up. He’d never even set foot on Ontario soil until he moved here. We brought our 4 children (6, 20 month old twins and 3.5 months). My two oldest boys (14 & 16) excitedly welcomed us home. My husband has left everything and every one he knows to come here and give our kids the best life possible. It’s been a long hard road to get here and he stood by me every step of the way. We have both led very difficult lives at the hands of emotional abusers but somehow we manage to always be strong for one another…. this cross country move has challenged us both yet strengthened our bond. Our anniversary is on Sept 1 and it would be lovely for the two of us to get away and get the pampering we both deserve!!
Wow! Thanks for doing this. My second child is due August 27th and I couldn’t think of a better way to relax with my husband after carrying this baby for 9 months. 🙂
Cassandra Dawson says
I would love to have a spa day because I currently have a 2 and a half year old boy and am almost 9 months pregnant with our 2nd. I love my life but it is very busy and hectic and I know it is only going to get more crazier, so it would be nice to have a little getaway and be pampered. I would totally bring my Mom because she does so much for us and never takes the time to pamper herself.
I would love to win this package as I have not been on a spa day in 6 years!!! Being a busy working mom, I haven’t been able to get away. I would take my bestie as her birthday is coming up.
I would love to win this day! My 9 yr old and I are both sexual abuse Survivor’s and this would be the best “Therapy” fpr us together!
Kim Tanti says
I beat cancer just over 2yrs ago. 6 months ago my hubby had his foot crushed at work. Last month some guy fell asleep at the wheel on the Hwy. Causing my hubby to spin out and flipp a couple times across the Hwy. to a ditch. He had to be cut out. Now I am going threw testing again which looks like another battle might be in my future. We could sure use a time out from life for a day. LOL

I would love a chance to go and have a day with my daughter before (or just after) she goes away to college. Give us a chance to spend some quality time!
I would absolutely go to heaven in this beautiful relaxing place! My fiancé and I have had quite a busy year moving twice and just buying our beautiful forever century home for our 2 young children to enjoy growing up in! We move in October and on top of that we are planning our July 2018 wedding! My birthday is in October along with our anniversary that just passed and we haven’t been able to find the time to celebrate these big life moments we’ve been having! This would be a perfect little getaway to enjoy a romantic day together and slow down and enjoy the moment! Thanks for the opportunity! ❤️
This is so wonderful of you! Thank you so much for this opportunity! I would absolutely love to win this for my husband. This September will be our 5 year anniversary and we would love this getaway to celebrate!
Good luck everyone! ❤️
My super awesome hubby! This fall we will celebrate 10 years of marriage (marry-ing as our priest called it). It would be a wonderful way to relax, rejuvenate, and reminisce.
Jessica Harper says
I would looooovvveee to win this spa day and take my hubby to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary!
Now – here are my reasons why…
first of all my husband and I never took a honeymoon! In fact – we haven’t been away , alone since before our babies were born. Every year we kept saying we will go away , even just for the weekend or a few days – but life kept getting in the way! And time sure does fly. So 5 years later and we are still saying we’ll try and take a honeymoon some day haha.
Secondly – we have 2 kids. Enough said! Our first born will be 3 in a couple weeks and our second was born in May of this year and will be 3 months next week! We are super busy and exhausted to say the least!
This spa day getaway would be put to good use and greatly appreciated by us – a time to reconnect and rejuvenate – not to mention a fabulous way to celebrate 5 years married! Thank you for this opportunity! ??
I would love to win this for my husband and I! We recently moved here from Alberta (where I am from) to be closer to his family here in Durham (where he is from). Us and our 2 year old son have been living with his parents (my in-laws) for the past 6 months until we got settled in our jobs and could purchase a home. We recently just purchased a home and are excitedly waiting our posession date 🙂 we are also celebrating as I am currently 6 months pregnant with our daughter! So we have alot to be thankful for right now and would love an opportunity to celebrate together in a way we would otherwise not be able to afford to!
Shannon Belmore says
I would take my husband. We desperately need a quiet day without the kids and he loves pampering even more then I do. What a gift this would be!
Robyn White says
I could so make wonderful use of this spa gift. I have an incredibly stressful job as a 911 operator and I’m also a wedding photographer and a Mom of 3 amazing kids but I have been burning the candle at both ends. It would be so amazing to be able to take my sister to this spa with me.
Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity.
I NEED this package! I am a stay at home mom who lives in the country and my husband works long hours in the city. Every hour of my day is spent with my children and I have never been away on my own without them! When I do get a weekend away without one of my children I am with the other one at girl’s camp being a leader to a ton of other parents’ children.
I would love to treat one of my bestfriend’s who is trying for a baby and could use the stress relief and pampering before starting the next crazy chapter of her life!
Thank you for writing the review and offering this to 2 lucky people!
I would love to win a spa package to use as a baby moon before we have our second baby in December. Some relaxation and pampering before the sleepless nights begin again would be just what the doctor ordered. 🙂 This would also be my first visit to St Anne’s.
Hayley LePage says
I would love to win this spa package for my husband and I. We recently had our first baby! She is now three months old. We have yet to have a relaxing get away alone. We would really love to win & relax for one day!
Oh god mother of 2 working 60+hours a week my daughter starts school my husband lost his job I’m drowning in stress and I would take my best friend she deserves a break as well
As a single mother of 2 I have limited time to myself as I also work a full time job. I keep my children as active and involved as possible as a suggestion to keep my sins ADHD manageable. U would bring my mom with me as she is my biggest support system. She deserves this even more than I so for being such an amazing role model
Just reading through this post my body is aching for a day of relaxation and an incredible massage!
I would love to win this opportunity to spend the day with my best friend. She has just had a double mastectomy done a few months ago and I am sure a day of relaxing before she goes through her second exchange surgery would be just what the doctor would order for her 🙂
Looks like lots of us Momma’s / ladies would all be deserving of this great offer!
Maeghan Rohwer says
Let me begin by saying thank you for offering this! How kind of you to give to others so selfishly.
I wanted to take my mom here but was unable to afford it, winning this would be a dream for us both.
My mom and I have come through life changing health issues the last 10 years and having this weekend would be a wonderful rejuvenation.
I was diagnosed with a benign pituitary tumor, Celiac Disease, precancerous breast tumor and (after a life changing injury at work) I now walk with a leg brace and cane.
My mom was diagnosed with Graves disease and a huge brain tumor that was wrapped around her brain stem and cochlear (inner ear, which has left her deaf).
We have most recently cared for our loved ones until we had to say goodbye and to be honest we we’re blessed but are tired.
We have been blessed with the love and support of our family and friends as we’ve gone through sugerys, treatments and loads of therapy. Because of them we’ve been able to get through with a positive outlook and love in our hearts. …..but we are tired and we’ve been praying for a chance like this to happen.
Reading through these posts there are so many deserving. Thank you again for helping out a stranger.
All our appreciation even to just be considered.
Christie Bartram says
I need a spa getaway because I have a 4yr old toddler and 8 week old baby. And I am set to return to work full time in 4 weeks time! Would go with my hubby.
Charnelle Scorgie says
I would LOVE this trip!! I’m a 27 year old mother if 2, and I have had some traumatic pregnancies and birth experiences. I have decided to have no more children, as I don’t want to experience this again. I am a stay at hom mom (I know there’s a lot of us), but I feel like (and have been told many times) I give and give and give, and it would be nice to have something just for me, and not for my kids (whom I love to pieces). I would take my dear friend Katie Enns, as she has been nothing but loving and supportive to me throughout our entire friendship, and I would love to show her how much she means to me (love you girl).
Thank you for the opportunity to win this dream spa trip!
Nancy T says
I would love to visit Ste. Anne’s Spa with my husband! We’ll be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary September 7th and before the hustle and bustle of school and the skating season begins, I’d love to celebrate that with him! #nokidsallowed #steannesspa
Suzanne Quinn says
Now that our kids are a bit older (13 & 10) my husband and I have started to enjoy more frequent date nights and it feels great to reconnect away from being
“parents” and I feel like a weekend away at a spa with my main man sounds like per-fection!
I need this So much. As a Esthetician, makeup artist and reiki practitioner pampering and healing my amazing clients it would be nice to be pampered. As a single mom without her dad in the picture makes life hard to juggle sometimes. Also trying to run a few businesses. I lost my dad 6 years ago And my mom has been diagnosed with dementia. I am her full time care giver. I have a big heart and I am always taking care of others so yes I do deserve this spa day. I would take my mom ????????
I would love a day at Ste. Anne’s spa! It would be a hard decision on who I would take. My husband or best friend? Either are very deserving and we would have such a nice relaxing day. Between taking care of 2 little kids and trying to keep my sanity, this would be the best. Pick me lol!
Cheryl Rossi says
I would LOVE a day at the spa! As a brand new mom, it’s been an adjustment having less time for me. It really is the best job, but a little me time never hurt, and would let me to be better able to take care of my mini me! I’d take my hubby, as he is in the same boat, and we need a little time for us.
Would love to win this , I need a spa getaway!!
I’m turning 30 in September and want a fresh break away from three little kids (all 4 and under)
Would love to bring my best friend Ang! She’s a hardworking momma of 3 – an older daughter and twins. She would love this!
This sounds amazing! Exactly what the doctor ordered 🙂 I would love to surprise my mom with a lovely girls getaway. We’ve recently been going through a harder time (unexpectedly & suddenly losing my father) and this could provide that much needed relaxation! And some overdue mother daughter time alone ❤️
Whomever wins this lovely getaway will be very lucky and have a wonderful getaway. Thank you for the lovely opportunity, very kind of you! 🙂
Ahh this looks amazing! I would love to win this and take my
Mom with me. Since I had my son almost 14 months ago I haven’t ever been away from him for longer than a few hours or had any ‘me time’ at all. My mom works hard to care for those around her and is always helping others. She loves massages more than anyone I’ve ever met but she is no longer covered for them now that she is retired. This would be such a nice break and treat for both of us! Thank you for sharing 🙂
I would love a daily getaway at St. Anne’s Spa. It would be so nice to be pampered after having a new baby. I would take my husband because he deserves some downtime and pampering too.
Mimi Goh says
I’d love to take my husband, as we never ever have any date nights or time to ourselves together!
Our anniversary is coming up mid-Sept and this would be a perfect weekend getaway!
Sounds amazing! I would love to take my wonderful husband! He works so hard for our family and even though he would never admit he was excited for a day at the spa, I know he would love every minute of it! Thanks for the opportunity!
I have always wanted to go away here but it’s just too pricey! I have two toddlers and would love to have a mama break and relax for a bit! I would bring my hubby for some alone time. What an awesome giveaway! 🙂
What a great looking place. I’ve heard of it, but have never been. I would love the opportunity to have a day away from my 3 littles and relax. If I won, I would bring my mom! It would give us a great chance to catch up and have some mother-daughter time (we live in separate cities). Thanks for this opportunity ?
Alex Chicoine says
I would love a spa getaway with my mom. I understand how important it is as a mother to take care of myself so I can be my best version of me for my child. I am expecting my second to arrive around November, and I will be a mom of 2 under the age of 2!
Ashley Reynolds says
This would make my summer to be able to have mini getaway with my dear husband as we celebrate our 4th anniversary this month.
6 weeks ago, just 3 weeks after welcoming our second son into the world, I was hit from behind by 2 dogs playing. The hit, sent my flying and broke my ankle.
Putting me in a cast (still in it) and on crutches, not being allowed to bear weight on my leg, I haven’t been able to walk with my infant, play and do day to day activities with my toddler or do normal day life things, resulting in my husband having to step up and care for all 3 of us and our dog while still trying to work.
We have had to cancel all of our summer activities as I cannot participate and its too much for him to handle all of us.
I’d love to be able to repay him with a relaxing getaway to de-stress and be pampered for once instead of having to care for all of us!
I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy Ste. Anne’s on all girl spa days but have yet to take my husband!
Thank you for the chance to win!
I have an incredible single Mom friend that has proven to me that you are never too old to find a bestie. We work together, live near one another and our kids are at he same daycare. She has not been alone, i.e. sans children, for nearly 13 years and, now that we have 2 and 5 year olds, the likelihood of affording time away is pretty slim. It would mean everything to be able to gift this type an experience to her. She so deserves it.

I would LOVE some me time! I’m a mother of a 1 year old and a 2.5 year old. Needless to say I don’t get time to myself! If I were to be picked, I’d love to bring my girlfriend who also has two young kids. We don’t get to see each other very much with being so busy with our kids and day to day lives. So it would be so nice to spend a day together catching up and eating HOT FOOD 😉 Congratulations to whoever wins and enjoy!
Samantha Briley says
I would love to take my mother on this spa day. She just turned 60 his year and works so hard. She always talks about how much she would love to have a spa day, even just a facial but it’s not easy to afford on a tight budget. So thus would be great for her. A wonderful mother daughter day away from all the stress of everyday busy life.
Cheryl H says
I’d love to go to Ste Anne’s spa! I’d take my amazing husband. We desperately need a night away to relax and be pampered. We didn’t even have a honeymoon so this could be like a honeymoon we never had
My hubby and I could totally use this as a mini vacation! Being busy with 2 kiddos and just moving into our first home we have not had much time to have some time to just us. This would be lovely. 🙂
This would be a dream come true! I have literally dreamt and talked about wanting to do this for a few years now but with having 2 babies in less than 2 years it hasn’t been feisable. I need a break more than I could express in a short message. I’m tired, beyond stressed and overworked with having 2 littles and helping run my husband’s business. I also have an autoimmune disease that constantly flares from all the stress I endure daily.
I would bring my best friend who has had a tough year with going through a miserable divorce and trying to figure out how to navigate through life as a single mom and splitting time with her child.
We need this so much, it would brighten our spirits that’s for sure!
Thanks for the chance:)
Dana Christian says
I would love to take some time for myself. I teach parents at work that they need to make time for themselves but find it extremely hard with my husbands schedule to make the same time for myself. I would take my two girls friends who have become my supports as we all have kids the same age and shift working husbands. I have never been to a spa and think this would be a wonderful experience to relax.
Sabrina Diljohn says
I would love to win this getaway!! Would be a great way to celebrate with my hubby for our anniversary that is on the 22nd! I’ve always wanted to go to this spa…I really enjoyed reading about your day there made me even more anxious to visit!
I would love the opportunity to be entered in a contest that involves me and a friend to get away! The reason I feel as if I deserve such a generous opportunity is that I’m a mom of six little ones and I can not recall a time I was completely kid free. I have moments I’m Less a few children, however never alone. I would take along with my a very close friend of mine who is also a very busy of mom of four I think it would be a great day to reconnect kid free!
I would love to take my mum for a spa day. With the sudden passing of my dad earlier this year she would love to have a get away and relax . She has been my rock my entire life and now she is broken. I would to be able to get away from all the hectic and have her relax
I would love a st Anne’s day. It’s a little slice of heaven. I would be thrilled to go with my hubby. He is my love, best friend, and hero. He supports me in every way and I can’t imagine what my life was like before I had him. He is an incredible father to our 18 month old as well. Having a little getaway to ourselves would be so appreciated.
Natasha Hasham says
I would love to win this so that I could take my husband! It’s our 10 year anniversary coming up and it would be so great to have some alone time for just the two of us. He is such a wonderful man that works so hard for our family and I really want to do something to show him how much I love and appreciate him!
Ruth dunbar says
I would love to take my mom. She has had a stressful past year caring for my grandparents and still working part time as the best nurse anyone could ever have. She doesn’t take time for herself. My mom is the most selfless caring person I know and she deserves the world.
Your review sounds heavenly! I’ve been wanting to try St. Anne’s Spa for a long time now but with a growing family and two dogs, the price tag is a luxury I just can’t afford. I would love to take my husband with me as he deserves some pampering. He works very hard for our family both at work and at home. To be honest, we’ve just been stuck in a rut. This little getaway would hopefully bring some balance (and some magic!) back into our lives.
Thanks for the lovely read!
Sarah Underhill says
I would love to have this opportunity! I am a mother of a 2 year old boy. My husband has been laid off for 6 months. I am a PSW in a long term care facility and spend my days and nights caring for those who can no longer care for themselves, as well as care for my family. I have never been to a spa and would love to enjoy this spa adventure with one of my best friends, who is always working hard and helps me whenever she can. She always goes above and beyond for me and I would love to treat her to a special day!
Stephanie Horwood says
I would love a spa day to take my Mom. She has been taking care of my now disabled brother every day for the past 2.5 years all on her own. She had to retire early and hasn’t been able to go on a spa day since before my brothers accident due to the combined costs of a spa day and a PSW to stay with my brother for the day. I would love to win and be able to take my Mom on a long overdue mother-daughter day to relax.
Thank you for the chance! I have heard amazing things about Ste.Anne’s Spa and would love to be there for a Day Spa with my husband. We both work full time and have two kids so we rarely have time to spend together as a couple. It would be terrific if we won. Our 8th wedding Anniversary is on Aug 29! It would be the perfect way to celebrate.
A spa getaway is exactly what my husband and I need! He works so hard and I’m always busy at home with our two little ones. We just moved this year to a new town so it has been a little chaotic. Being pampered would be a real treat for us to enjoy our alone time together because ☺
Need it, because who doesn’t?! I would love to take my sissy-boo ?
Corena Cole says
I would love to have a St. Anne’s spa for me and my best friend, we are both labor and delivery nurses and give so much of our selves to others, working long shifts and overtime. A retreat at St.Anne’s would allow us the time needed for us to relax, rejuvenate and recharge ourselves so we are able to return to work ready and able provide the top notch care to our patients during the one important times of their lives
Hello! You are so generous. I would love a trip to this spa. I have always dreamed of going here. My mom is my best friend, she was a single mom who struggled for years and gave me everything she could. I would love to repay her. With having a young child myself this would be the best thing to happen to me, ever! I truly hope whomever you choose has an amazing time that they deserve. Thank you for the chance, fingers crossed!
I would love to win this for my mom…and see if we could pay for a 3rd person so my sister could come. I have had a rough year losing twins through a miscarriage (happy sending as I was able to have a daughter) and also celebrate my mom being cancer free. We all live apart and this binding experience would be so great after all the hard and celebrate what we have now.
My husband and I just finished renovating the house. It took us a full year of hard work.
We definitely need some pampering now 🙂
I would love to go to the spa with one of my best friends Elizabeth. She is the mom of four young kids and neither of us have been to any sort of spa before or get pampered. I would love to take her away and we can.both let our husbands take the kids 😉
Ange G says
I would love to experience St Anne’s spa. It is definitely on my bucket list! I have 3 young children and a 4th on the way, so a day of pampering would be amazing for me right now. If I won I would take my best friend with me. She also has young kids and just lost her 3rd baby late into her pregnancy. She could definitely use the escape to relax and recharge.
I would love to win this! This has been a really busy summer, and I would love some time to relax with a friend. Between work and family obligations, I don’t get to see my friends as often as I would like, and rarely without a child constantly interrupting. I would love to take one of my friends with me <3
My bestie at work and I are in NEED of a spa day to get away from work worries and to have some quiet kid-free time!
Sherene Peckford says
I would love to win the spa giveaway! I have 3 boys and just had my little girl 4 months ago. So let’s just say my life is busy. I would take one of my best friends who also has 3 boys. She’s been dealing with a lot since her husband broke his foot, plus they sold their house and moved.. and all this within 3 months.
Michele Reid says
I am heading back to work early from maternity leave (landed my dream job!), so a little rest and relaxation would go along way in getting me ready for this transition. My husband has never had a true spa experience and this would be a great place for him to see what a real spa is like!!
Diana Cerovich says
As a mother of 3 with the oldest being 9 and youngest 9 months, I’m always on the go. My super hero cape is always on.
But it wouldn’t be for me.
My best friend is always doing things for others. She has literally given people the shirt off her back and will do so much just to see someone else smile. She’s a mother of 2 herself and doesn’t have a whole lot for herself. She really deserves a chance to be pampered and I would love the opportunity for us to get away and just have some grown up time. Thanks for the opportunity!
Katy Pfautsch says
I would love to win this for myself and my mom. As a mother of 3 children aged 6, 3 and 1, my full time dream job working with people with developmental disabilities I rarely find anytime for myself as my time is spent caring for everyone. I would love to take my mother who cares for my children while I work and has never had a spa day in her life as she always put all of her kids needs before her own and still does aswell as her grandkids. I would love to be able to share a beautiful relaxing day with someone that is not only my mother but my best friend. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to everyone!
Laurie Pereira says
Hi! I would love to share my spa day with my husband. We are so busy with work, our 3 children & would love the opportunity to spend quality time with my best friend. He loves & supports me always. We have much to celebrate this fall! I’m 4 years cancer free & it’s our 9 year wedding anniversary! Would be a great way to show my appreciation & how much we love each other. Thank you!!
Sarah Brunton says
I would absolutely love to win this and be able to take my best friend who has been through a rough past year and still fighting her way through it all!
A relaxing day without my 3 kids (6, 4 & 1) would be fantastic for myself to enjoy as well ?
Good luck to everyone!
Jennifer Sloan says
My hubby and I just finished our graduate degrees. He graduated in June, and I will graduate in November. When we moved from Oshawa to Kingston 3 years ago to attend Queen’s, we had a 9 month old daughter. We had two more beautiful children right smack in the middle of it all. Our children are currently 3, 2, and 1. We have been through some TOUGH times. We thank the Lord for getting us through. We are VERY tired. I told my hubby I want to put in for early retirement. He said no ?. Pick us please!!!!!
Sarah Binder says
I’m about to return to work after my maternity leave. I now have 2 boys and am a very busy lady. After a year of putting myself last (some days not showering or even brushing my teeth, wearing clothes covered in snot, spit, vomit, pee or poo, and missing out on a lot of my beauty sleep lol), it would be great to pamper myself….and my mom…I’m still in awe that she did all this as a single mom and with 3 of us!
Ashley Bourguignon says
Wow! What a beautiful spa! I would love the opportunity to come here with my boyfriend. He is such an amazing man. He’s a single father who is such a hard worker. He deserves a chance to get pampered. This would be the absolute most perfect couples retreat. Thank you so much for this opportunity! Good luck everyone!
Jennifer L says
This spa prize would be the perfect opportunity for my hubby and I to relax and just spend some quality time together. We’re crazy busy at home with our 3 kids and him working long hours, wouldn’t hurt to take some time off!! And I really couldn’t picture going with anyone else… Thanks for setting up this very cool contest, good luck to all (hope we get chosen though ^_^ )
I would love the opportunity to go for a spa day. I am a busy full time working mom of two boys and could really use some me time. I would bring my husband who also needs a break.
I would love a spa day!!! I would love to go with my husband. We have been so busy with our girls and working, he works nights and I works days. We have not had a “date night” in probably 7 years!! This would be a great gift to surprise him with to have a date night!!
Shelley Rogers says
I would love to win this to bring a mom friend who could use the ‘me time’ as much as I do.
Stacey Horning says
I would love to win this giveaway.
I am a single mom to a crazy toddler. We are in the middle of developmental delay and autism testing and would love some time away to recharge.
I would beingy best friend. She is pregnant for the 2nd time (first pregnancy was a loss) and know she could go for some good pampering
This sounds amazing and I have always wanted to go. Being almost 5 months and having to relax (I’m high risk and have complications) this would be the perfect getaway. I would definitely take my sister because I feel like she would appreciate it the most. I also think she needs to get away for a day and relax!!
We(my best friend) need a spa day because. My best friend has been through so much in the last few years she lost her younger sister in an accident 3 days after the birth of her daughter. She has suffered a miscarriage and is now 6 more the pregnant with her beautiful baby and I want this experience to be wonderful it’s well deserved for this hard working beautiful mom. I lost my mom 2 more the after my son was born , lost my business and now back working full time. We need a break and some relaxation. For 2 hard working mom’s that no doubt need a bit of a breather and some relaxation.
I would love to take my twin sister, it will be our 39th birthday in October, and we have never been away together. It will be an extra sweet getaway together since it will be the last time in our 30s!!! Lol. She’s amazing and my best friend!
Lisa DeWitt says
I would love to take my twin sister for our 39th Birthday, we have never had the opportunity to go anywhere together alone.
Jessica M says
I would LOVE a spa day at Ste. Anne’s!! A girlfriend of mine goes frequently and just raves about it. I am a hard working mama who loves my little guy very much. Everything I do is for him. But this mama hasn’t had a facial or any type of personal pampering in YEARS!! It would be a dream come true 🙂
Christa Temple says
I would love this to spend a day with my mom. Do I need this for me, not really. I mean, don’t get m wrong, is love to go, who doesn’t like feeling pampered, and no life’s not perfect, there are stresses etc, but overall, life’s not too bad. But my mom deserves this. She’s amazing. She constantly gives of herself. To her kids, to her grandkids, to her family, to her friends, and even to random strangers who become new friends in no time. She’s loving, caring, strong, sets an amazing example, she never gives up, and rarely ever puts herself first. So to have a day just to spend with my mom with nothing to fix or clean or kids interrupting, would be amazing.
I would love this for my mom and I. We’ve both been through alot in the past few months and some time to relax is needed. Since the beginning of the year, mom’s pap came back with cancerous cells (4th time since original cancer was removed) and had to get them removed, we got t-boned right at my mom’s door causing her to get a complete tear in her rotator cuff and now has frozen shoulder, she’s been off work since. I fell and broke my ankle. I was on bed rest for almost 2 months, so my poor mother had to take care of my highly spirited 4 year old son while she had 1 good arm. My grandma (her mother) got diagnosed with lung cancer, her surgery is approaching. Finally, my father is recovering from his first heart attack. I know life is full of ups and downs, as someone with borderline personality disorder, the changes life brings has a devastating effect on my mind and body even if minor. I am truly looking forward to when things start getting better.
Dana Austin says
Thank you for the opportunity. This would be an amazing time to relax and enjoy with someone special. It would be exactly what is needed to level me out.
Katrina Frenza says
I would love to be able to take my Mom who has her last Chemo session today! We have been through so much together over the past year that we both need a mental and physical break from it all.
I think it would be the perfect way to not only relax but celebrate her cancer survival and the end of her treatments.
Elisa Woodrow says
I would so love to win this spa day! I am a busy Mom of three little ones (2,4 and 6) and would love the chance for me and my husband to have a real day of R & R. We’ve always wanted to go to Ste Anne’s. It looks gorgeous! This would be amazing!
Jenna Johnstone says
I would love to win. I recently had a baby and would love some relaxation and pampering. I would bring my mom with me as we rarely get to have time for the just the 2 of us.
Lindsay Threlkeld says
I need a spa day after a busy summer staying home with my 2 girls. I’d love to be to take my husband with me for a chance to reconnect & relax! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
Genie Kiriakou says
This was such a great blog! I have heard of St. Anne’s before but reading and seeing the pictures brought it to a new light for me. I would love to go with my beautiful mom. She should of retired years ago and still works like crazy and helps my brother and myself out with her five grandkids. Plus, we have never had a mother and daughter getaway. It would be an amazing blessing if we won! Thanks so much!
I would LOVE to win a spa trip and take my mother. I could say I’d take my husband, as he does deserve one just as much, but you see, for the last year and a bit we’ve had some struggles financially. My husband went through a court battle with a former employer that wasn’t paying him and due to the legal issues, he was unable to work in that time (as per lawyers orders). I made some money, but with 3 kids and our youngest is now just 2, funds were beyond tight. My mother helped out out as much as she could. She helped ensure we kept our home, our lights on, etc. I would like to take her to thank her for everything she has done for us. On top of her helping us, she works for the TTC as a driver. She wakes up some days at 3am to be at work on time, can’t take days off, some days she works extra routes because others have called in or they don’t have enough drivers to cover a busy route that’s delayed. She goes to bed exhausted and wakes up just as exhausted. She gets 2 days off each week and usually 1 of them is spent picking up my grandfather and taking him to one of his many doctors appointments, hospital visits, grocery runs, etc etc. Even though she has 2 brothers, she’s the only one that cares for my grandfather. Her and my dad also support not only my youngest sister (who is in her 20’s) but also my brother, his girlfriend and my 2 nephews. My mother deserves to be treated like the queen she is and I would love to be able to take her for a spa visit.
I think everyone needs a spa day – especially one that looks as amazing as above! I constantly feel overwhelmed between my two boys, hubby, working full time and owning my own small business on the side. I forget to take time out for me and always put myself last. I would love to take my sister with me.
I would love this with my husband. And the reason we deserve it is just kids. No further explanation required ?
Chantel Cook says
I would love to win this for my mom and I. I know she needs it more then anything right now, and we always say we are going to do a spa day but we never get around to it. Life gets busy with kids and running a local business 🙂
Kate wilenski says
Would love a getaway with my hubby! I really want to walk up to their chapel and renew our vows. It would be so romantic. Thanks for a wonderful contest
I would love the opportunity to visit St. Annes Spa with my mom. My 2 little ones keep me busy, so my mom and I haven’t had the time to hang out, just the 2 of us in SO long. Neither one of us pampers ourselves, so this would be the ultimate treat and to experience it together would be amazing!
Rebecca Tomback says
This would be the perfect and much needed getaway for my husband and I. Our anniversary is coming up and we haven’t been away the two of us in quite a while. I’ve wanted to visit St. Anne’s as long as I can remember.
Robyn Bellefleur says
We have four daughters and four dogs, wouldn’t you say that deserves a spa day? I would love to take my husband for some much needed relaxation and pampering.
Robynne Richards says
I would love to visit St. Annes spa and could use a little break from my 3 busy kids! I would take my sister in law with me because she could use a break too and I love spending time together. 🙂
I’d love to win this because I rarely get time away without kids, and I’d love to spend a day relaxing and pampering myself. I’d take my best friend who also deserves a day off
Anna Amatangelo says
I would love to treat my daughter and myself to a spa vacation. We have been talking about a spa weekend for years. She is now 17 and I am so proud of her for all her hard work in school and overcoming many obstacles emotionally. She is the world to me and I would love to show her with a weekend at St. Anne’s Spa. 22 years ago, I lost my mom suddenly to a heart attack 8 days before my wedding. It was an extremely difficult time, and among other problems, including infertility, I had an inner strength and got through it. Four years later I gave birth to my beautiful daughter – I honestly think she saved me. I feel that everyone does deserve a spa vacation once in their lifetime and would be ecstatic if I won. Best of luck to everyone !! You are all very deserving of this prize.
Andrew and I would LOVE a day spa getaway at Ste. Anne’s to celebrate our anniversary. Can you believe it’s been 9 years?! We haven’t had any time just the two of us, with my Dad’s heart attack and the craziness of summer. This would be a wonderful treat!
Ashley Rozanski says
I’m 24 weeks pregnant with baby #2! I would live a little pampering before she comes! I’m not sure of I’d bring my hubby or my best friend ?
Amanda Biggar says
I love your blog! I’ve never been to Ste. Anne’s but would love to go especially after reading your visit there. I’d take my husband. We both work full time (I’m a Special Education teacher) and we have two young boys. It would be nice to have a little time away together. ?
Heather Anderson says
I want to take my best friend to the spa for the day. I work full time (50hrs plus) and have a toddler at home. she has two kids under 5 (and one on the way) and runs her own wedding business, jewlery business and part time for an events management company. The two of us could use a day away to be stress free!
Cheryl Weir says
This would be a fantastic way to end a very busy summer. I would bring my friend Angie for this wonderful afternoon. She and I are both mother’s of 2 and 3 children respectively. We both work very hard at our jobs and volunteer nearly every free moment that we have to helping children realize their full potential in sports, in their relationship with God, their families and their friends and just in life in general.
I have always wanted to visit St. Anne’s spa and would love to go with my husband. With his busy work schedule, I haven’t spent much time with him this summer, so this would allow us to spend some quality time together without the hustle and bustle!
April Patch says
I have never been! I think I need this as I need to relax and unwind and take better care of pampering me, rather than those around me all the time. If I won, it would be a toss up between taking my son’s great nana, great aunt or a friend also in nerd of pampering. Might be a nice way to spend the day with my mom too. Too many choices! Thank you for the opportunity.
Jessica Mancuso says
I need a day at a spa because in 15 weeks I am going to be a mother to 4 glorious children. But this mama & her hubby could use a mini staycation before life becomes too hectic!
I would love to have a spa day – being a busy mom of three who works twelve hour shifts – a spa getaway is a much needed break. I would take my mom in law because she has never been to a spa 🙂
Shannon taggart says
I would definitely bring my sister. We are both new moms, her a bit newer than me and we have gotten so much closer as we navigate motherhood together. We both could definitely use a nice sister’s day out!
This would be a dream come true! As most moms we put ourselves last and I feel I’m at the point I need a break, my shoulders ache and feel they are on fire most evenings from stress and tension.
I’m a full-time working mom of two my daughter is two and my son is four. My son was diagnosed with autism two years ago and was non verbal. Today he has some vocabulary and uses an iPad to talk to us, he goes about 16 hours a week of therapy as well as social activities like horse back and gymnastics, my daughter is also in dance classes. Between keeping track of everyone’s schedule and appointments I am also supporting my husband now. My husband has also been taken off work with severe depression. This would be an amazing break I would take my best friend on with me as a mini getaway just for a day
I would love to win a day spa at Ste Anne’s Spa! Being a busy woman (home, kids, work, activities), I feel it is important to have a rest day, to recharge and reconnect with nature, and to have some quiet time for inner reflection. And most days I don’t make the time for that. I would love to bring my husband with me as well, because, while I don’t always make time for this, neither does he (much less so than I do).
Thank you for the contest!
Sharilyn Rathee says
I would love to visit Ste. Anne’s with my husband for a stress free night without the kids and no technology. My favourite place!
Heather McIntosh says
Looks amazing!!! I’d love to win a spa day. I’d bring my husband. We’d love a relaxing, kid-free day now that he’s recovered from a broken foot all summer.
I would love to share a spa day with a very good friend who has stuck by me since we were 11 years old and we are now 45!
