snow angels and snuggling

So, Dad, I planned out our whole day. First we'll make snow angels for two hours, and then we'll go ice skating, and then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we'll snuggle. ~ Buddy The Elf

Doesn’t Buddy The Elf have the absolutely perfect winter plan? Doesn’t it sound like a great way to spend a cold winter’s day with a loved one? It sure does to me, and although Buddy The Elf is from a Christmas movie and all about Christmas cheer and the north pole, I have a sneaky suspicion with his interests and agenda he might also really enjoy a winter break in rural Manitoba. I know the perfect place for Buddy to make snow angels, go ice skating, eat sweet treats and snuggle. It’s Lakeview Hecla Resort in Hecla Provincial Park which is located approximately 200 km north of Winnipeg.

I first discovered Lakeview Hecla Resort in August 2013. You can read all about my amazing Hecla summer vacation by clicking here, but the short version is I loved my summer experience at Lakeview Hecla Resort and I knew I wanted to return. I was absolutely thrilled when I was invited to attend a Travel Manitoba media trip with some bloggers and writers to discover Lakeview Hecla Resort in the winter. I had an amazing time and I fully recommend Lakeview Hecla Resort for a great Manitoba getaway. The entire experience from start to finish was relaxing, refreshing and I left feeling energized. It was just what my soul needed for a winter pick-me-up.

 

During my trip it became very clear to me that winter possibilities at Lakeview Hecla Resort are endless, and there is something for everyone. Outdoor activities such as ice skating, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and fun times around a bonfire, all offer hours of family fun and are a great way to connect with nature and loved ones. Rentals for equipment such as snowshoes, cross country skis and toboggans are available onsite. If you prefer indoor activities you can play board games (lots to choose from at the front desk!), hang out at the vast array of indoor pools and hot tubs, and snuggle up and watch free movies in your beautiful room. If food is your thing, check out Seagull’s Restaurant, the onsite full service restaurant, and its delicious menu filled with great options (try the pickerel tacos they are awesome!), or grab a stool at the bar and order up a few Caesars to help numb the winter cold.

With very affordable prices (take a look at the current Cabin Fever package - it includes so many things and starts at $89 per night!), and being only two hours from Winnipeg, it is a fantastic option for a Manitoba winter getaway. The entire resort is updated with beautiful modern rooms and common areas with an Icelandic flare, and it is one of my absolute favorite spots to stay so far in all of Manitoba. This is a resort I will return to again and again and again.

So if you are looking for a great local Manitoba winter experience that won’t break the bank - stop looking - Lakeview Hecla Resort is it. It is the ultimate spot to enjoy Manitoba in the winter. While you are there, remember Buddy The Elf’s perfect winter agenda and be sure to make a few snow angels and take time to snuggle. You won’t be disapointed.

A huge thank to you Travel Manitoba for my great winter experience. For more information on Travel Manitoba please visit http://www.travelmanitoba.com/.
