Two Unique Accommodations: Magnolia Ranch B&B and A Floating Geodome

Original blog by Arienne of See You Soon Travel | Published on November 30 and December 2, 2021

Plan a stay close to home – and check out two unique accommodations through the eyes of Arienne from See You Soon Travel. While you plan your stay, don’t forget about the staycation tax credit: Ontario residents can claim 20% of your eligible 2022 accommodation expenses, for example, a stay at a hotel, cottage or campground, when filing your personal Income Tax for 2022. You can claim eligible expenses of up to $1,000 as an individual or $2,000 as a family.

Arienne’s first stop: take glamping to a whole new place in a floating geodome, nestled along our EPIC Wineries wine route! Enjoy a calming and relaxing stay with all the amenities of a five star hotel!

While you’re staying, don’t forget to head out and explore the local offerings – culinary delights, bold reds & crisp whites are all just a short drive (or bike) away, including:

  • check out Green Heart Kitchen for easy-to-prep in the dome food, or to-go bites that are pre-pared sandwiches and bites
  • learn more about the history of the region at John R. Park Homestead (you can see the grounds from your front deck!)
  • get around by the power of two wheels with Grove Bike Co. bike rentals
  • grab a pint or two (or a couple tall boys to go) from The Grove Brew House, or nestle up to the bar for a longer stay with their fantastic food options
  • try the bold reds and crisp whites at Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards, including some fantastic dining options inside the Vine’s Restaurant
  • Grab a slice of Windsor-style pizza at OGs Pizza
  • Enjoy the patio, wood burning fireplace and locally-sourced meals at Oxley Estate Winery

If relaxing and romantic is more your speed, you’ll want to see Arienne’s stay at The Magnolia Ranch Bed & Breakfast taking your bed and breakfast to a whole new level. Every room has a nod to the Victorian era but with totally modern updates, woodlands trails for hikes, fire pits and more. While you’re there make sure you explore more in the region, including:
