Pre-Family Day Winter Getaway

For the second time in as many years, we stayed for a long weekend at Deerhurst Resort with our friends and their families. We were a total of 11 families, so you can just imagine how big our group was.

The charm of Deerhurst is that it has a lot to offer for the various needs and hobbies of each family. Couples love the fact that skiing is a few minutes away, down at Hidden Valley. While families with kids enjoy the activities that the resort offer for free.

Deerhurst Resort is located in Deerhurst Drive, Hunstville, Ontario. From where we live in Toronto, it was about two and a half hours drive without traffic via Highway 401 and Highway 400.

Here's how we spent the wonderful weekend.

We stayed in a 3-bedroom unit with the Zaragozas and the Ronquillos. Our room has a Queen bed and we just brought an airbed for Lucas. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is mighty convenient for each family. No waiting for your turn in the washroom :)

We travelled to Huntsville early on the first day so we could do some snowtubing before we check in at Deerhurst. Unluckily, the snow tubing activity was closed in Algonquin Park :( Good thing we discovered that we can go sledding in one of the side streets near our units. Problem solved!

Noah - shaking the pine tree for snow 

Noah loved this sled brought by Tita Cherrie's family. He said it went so fast 

Yup. This was done on the same day, at the same hotel ;) Kids also loved the indoor pool. Noah had fun practicing his starfish move with Daddy.

 Macky, Wacky, Marcus and Lucas - like a Nestea ad

 They sure didn't pass up the chance to play Pokemon Go and have raid battles.
