Nestled in the heart of the rolling Northumberland Hills is the 19th-century stone inn of Ste. Anne's Spa, which gazes down on 500 acres of rolling forested hills overlooking Lake Ontario. The destination and day spa offers extensive spa and wellness facilities, 28 luxuriously appointed CAA-approved Four-Diamond guest rooms, fine dining, and a comprehensive array of spa treatments from which to choose.
Since the spa is located on top of a natural mineral spring, its waters are the basis for the treatments, and services use Aveda skincare products. The spa's fitness center features a broad range of classes, and guests can enjoy nutritious cuisine led by executive chef Christopher Ennew C.C.C.
Located only 90 minutes east of Toronto, Ste. Anne's has earned international recognition as one of the top 10 destination spas in the world by British Vogue magazine and has been voted Favorite Spa in Canada, along with Favorite Spa Manager, in SpaFinder's 2010 Readers' Choice Awards. Guests may take advantage of the Stress Express service, including train transportation and chauffeured limousine service.

Offering guests CAA Four-Diamond accommodations, Ste. Anne's Spa has 28 rooms housed in both the main inn and in six unique spa cottages located within walking distance of all on-site facilities. Many rooms feature a fireplace, a private bath equipped with a whirlpool tub, and magnificent views of Lake Ontario. Natural spring water flows from every tap on the property and is used to fill the pools, hot tubs, saunas, and the eucalyptus steam room.

Dining at Ste. Anne's Spa is designed to be a delicate combination of pampering and moderation. Ste. Anne's Spa celebrates its country inn component experience by offering country fare prepared according to the principles of healthy eating. Guests can enjoy the "simple and fresh" creations of executive chef Christopher Ennew C.C.C., a culinary World Cup winner. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and light choices are available at every meal, and dishes incorporate locally raised beef and seasonal herbs and vegetables organically grown from the property's gardens. The inn also creates its own pasta, soup, baked goods, preserves, and salad dressings.

Overnight guests wishing to drink wine with their meals are welcome to bring their own wine, as Ste. Anne's Spa is not licensed.
