Luxury, relaxation, AND gluten free food? Sign me up! Ste. Anne’s Spa is like no other. You are treated like royalty from the moment you walk into the breathtaking spa! I brought my amazing fiancé alongside me for a day of relaxation and of course, gluten free eats.
Upon arrival, the wonderful staff at Ste. Anne’s Spa welcomed us, and provided us with an itinerary for the day. First stop, the Spa Gem, Ste. Anne’s Signature Facial! My esthetician was outstanding, and used tons of formulas and special techniques to leave my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Following the treatment, we went to visit the pool for some rest, relaxation and swimming! This meant quiet time, with a book and sunshine for me!
The next stop, the “Fieldstone Grotto”. This facility is open year-round and features a hot tub, plunge pool for cooling down, and a lap pool. It’s excellent for your joints and muscles! Since I spin every day, this worked wonders for my muscles!
Lunch time! Ok – don’t even get me started here! The servers are absolutely fantastic! I walked into the restaurant, said my name and got a Celiac Food card. This made my experience much easier and showed me just how seriously they take food allergies. As a starter, I ordered Cucumber Wrapped Greens. This included mixed greens, frisée, candied pecans, heirloom tomatoes, edible flowers, and purple grapes wrapped in a cucumber with orange blossom vinaigrette. For my main entrée, I ordered the Strawberry & Almond Salad, which was swapped out from Strawberry to Peach, and included toasted almonds with cooked peaches, arugula and spinach. As you can tell, I was trying to save as much space as possible for the food to come later!
Following lunch, Jake and I went to sit in the Eucalyptus Steam Room, which was incredible! Because I have been getting over the flu, this room was the perfect cure for my cough. Now time for the Quiet Room! Filled with therapeutic massage chairs, puzzles, colouring books and more, this room is where I spent tons of quiet time, just sitting in a chair and closing my eyes.
Jake and I were so full from all of the food, so we decided to go for a nice walk before our bakery tour. Ste. Anne’s Bakery is truly one of a kind! They’re certified gluten-free, and provide tons of baked goods, breads, chocolate and a whole lot more! While we were visiting, we got to try their chocolates, ice creams (which are brand new and fabulous), as well as their cookies! This bakery is phenomenal, and I highly recommend trying their breads and other baked goods!
Before high tea, Jake and I continued to walk! How else could we keep on eating? Walking in the area, past the horse stables, visiting the other cottages nearby, and the fitness center was amazing. We truly felt like we had left busy Toronto for a fun country adventure, and had a beautiful, relaxing day! Of course, we made it back for Afternoon Tea, and we ordered the gluten free sampler, which included a Sandwich Plate, Cheese & Crackers and Sweets!
Jake and I had the most outstanding, fun-filled day at Ste. Anne’s Spa. They gave me the royal treatment (to say the least), and I was so glad I didn’t have to worry about my food and meal options throughout the day. It was an absolute treat, and I can’t wait to visit Ste. Anne’s Spa again soon!

Love to all xo,
Welcome to MCL World
I am currently in my 20's, working a full-time job in downtown Toronto, and enjoying the foods I have always dreamed of. I absolutely love to travel, and I am always excited to explore new gluten-free restaurants that I can feel comfortable at in a new city or country!
