Inn at a Glance: The Orchard Croft Boutique Retreat
The Orchard Croft Boutique Retreat charms its visitors with several homey, country-style features—it sits amid an idyllic orchard filled with peach trees, and it’s trimmed with antique furnishings. The smell of home-baked pastries fills the inn every morning during the complimentary three-course breakfast. When it’s warm, guests like to lounge on hammocks slung between two trees.
- Where you’ll stay: Elegant suites are named for popular wines and champagnes and are decorated in rich red and gold tones as a nod to the local vineyards. Free WiFi and an iPod docking station adds modern touches to the French Provincial-inspired decor.
- Added perks: This deal include one four-course dinner, as well as wine tasting cards to use at nearby wineries.
- Hungarian-style breakfast: The menu changes to accommodate dietary restrictions, but the items are always made with produce from local farms and seasonal herbs grown onsite.
Jordan Village, Ontario: Historical Farm Town near Niagara Falls
Just a half-hour outside Niagara Falls’ crashing waters, the unassuming hamlet of Jordan Village sits amid rolling hills dotted with farms and wineries. The village provides a peaceful contrast from the more tourist-centered Niagara Falls, but there are still plenty of attractions to keep you occupied. For one, you can venture out to tour the nearby wineries. In the nearby village of Niagara-on-the-Lake, take a peek at the tree-lined Main Street, where you’ll find antique shops and British-style teahouses serving crumpets and selling imported candies.
