Let A Thermea Winnipeg Experience ReVitalize You #Giveaway #ExploreMB

PegCity born & raised, lifestyle blogger, and positivity enthusiast. I'm here to share about life – from hidden gems to healthy habits and build a community of authenticity.

I'm Natalie!

Winnipeg sure has come a long way in offering new events and attractions, how exciting to now add our very own Nordik Spa. Thermea Winnipeg is open for business! Their grand opening was January 15, 2015 and I had an opportunity for my very own personal tour with Account Executive/Spokesperson Marianne Trotier. Marianne is from Chelsea, Quebec, home to the original and largest Nordik Spa-Nature location in North America.

Thermea Winnipeg PR

My very first question – why Winnipeg?

I was pleasantly surprised by the story that Marianne relayed to me as we walked through various areas of Thermea. In 2010, a Winnipeg businessman travelled to Ottawa for a meeting, with his wife accompanying him. While he was at his meetings he took his wife to the Nordik Spa-Nature in Chelsea. At the end of the day when he went to pick her up she didn’t want to leave, so he decided to join her. He completely fell in love with the concept! Days later he met with the owner at the time Martin and told him “We need you in Winnipeg”! That man was Norman Dupas (thank you so much Norman). Norman and Martin took one and a half years to find some land in the outskirts of the city of Winnipeg. Finally, they landed on the Crescent Drive Golf Course site.  The land is rented, the Pro Shop has been rebuilt and now there’s a fabulous partnership between the golf course and the spa. What a match made in heaven! Finish up a great round of golf and then relax with a wonderful thermal experience.

Thermea Winnipeg

You can eat there too!

There is a full service restaurant on site which is reserved for folks using the spa only, it is not open to the general public. Therefore, anyone who is there that just had their thermal experience or a massage can head to the restaurant to have a bite to eat with your robe on, no makeup, messy hair and all! FYI that “look” is accepted throughout the whole facility, no judgment!

Thermea Winnipeg Restaurant

Welcome to Thermea Winnipeg

When you enter the building you will notice the decor is so calming and welcoming yet modern. I love that all of the amazing wooden pieces throughout the spa including the tables was visualized and created by a local Winnipeg artist! Once you check in, you will receive a wristband (looks like one of those fitness wristbands) and it allows you to open your locker where you will find two towels.  All you need to bring is a bathing suit, sandals and a robe or you could rent a robe for $11. They do recommend that you bring a water bottle and a toque for the winter months.

Upstairs on the second level of the spa there are 12 rooms for body treatments and massage. Thermea Winnipeg offers three types of massage: 1) hot stone, 2) classic relaxation and 3) Swedish.  For those of you that have benefits plans where massage therapy is covered, I highly suggest you book your appointments and get reimbursed! They offer body treatments as well: foot care, facials and body care such as mud wraps etc. but there are no beauty or aesthetics services available on-site.

Thermea Winnipeg Massage

There are two pretty massive change rooms, each with 175 lockers, large showers and even hairdryers are provided.

You are totally surrounded by nature when you walk out onto the grounds, all you can see are trees, it is amazing! The architecture consists primarily of wood and rock. And guess what? The concrete paths are heated!

Relax with a Thermal Experience

The thermal experience consists of three saunas  and three baths as described below:


    • This Finnish sauna is built with all wood. Typically you would sit in it for about 10 to 20 minutes. This is where you’re going to sweat it all out and get all those toxins of your body. As you enter the sauna there is a barrel of ice. As  you enter the sauna, grab some ice in your hands and bring it into the sauna because that will allow you to stay cool so you can stay longer in the sauna.  Every hour there are ice balls infused with essential oils like lavender, mint or orange thrown onto the hot stones that heat the sauna. As they melt, they create a mist and the “Saunameister” (an employee) rotates and spreads the air.
    • These steam saunas are very aromatic and you would also sit in them for about 10 to 15 minutes. The Eucalyptus sauna room also has an exfoliation ritual where you can use the Epsom salts provided on your whole body to exfoliate. Head into the sauna for another five minutes after exfoliating.


    • Essentially the hot tub on site, approx 39 degrees Celsius
    • Approx 21 degrees Celsius and is likened to body temperature
    • I don’t think I need to translate this one – it’s about 10 degrees Celsius and called the polar bear plunge!

To receive the full benefits and relaxation of this thermotherapy, you would follow this regimen while at the spa:

1. Warm up in the sauna or steam bath for 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Do a quick pass under the cold waterfall or take a dip in the cold or temperate pool for a few seconds.

3. Rest fifteen minutes in one of our relaxation areas, outside or inside.

4. Repeat this ritual three or four times, finally immersing yourself in our whirlpool for a moment of total relaxation.

It’s very well known that this is a process that is widely used in European countries.

Thermea Winnipeg Experience

Once you have completed the thermotherapy, you can hang our and relax in the FLAM cabin  – an enclosed fire pit with no roof. Just sit there wrapped up in a blanket looking up at the stars, so awesome!

There’s also the relaxing chalet called RELAXA where you can quench your thirst with water or have a nice cup of tea. In the chalet there are heated ceramic benches and heated stone beds. It was the one area where I was able to take pictures! There are also warming mattresses, headphones for music and of course ropes. Ropes to help pull yourself up because you will be so relaxed!

Thermea Winnipeg Relax

One thing I was curious about was how everything is sanitized. There is constant sanitation by employees around every 15 minutes. They also sand certain areas to make sure they’re not slippery because safety is first for the customer.  There are currently about 30 employees and within a year Thermea Winnipeg expects to grow to 100 employees!

I definitely look forward to summer because the spa is surrounded by forest trails and there will be hammocks in the trees, a patio for the restaurant and Adirondack chairs everywhere! T

Any rules to follow? Yep!

The spa has capacity for 225 people and you do not need a reservation for the thermal experience; however, you do need to be 16 years of age or older to attend. I have also seen some people posting pictures with their phones and they do state No Phones! Hence why I was only to grab a few pics on tour when there were no one in the various structures. If the staff do see phones they will advise folks to remove the phones and put them away in your lockers. It’s all about the relaxation and privacy of course!  So no phones, no TV’s, no loud socializing (which is tough for me haha) just a calming relaxing atmosphere.  No outside food allowed on site either because of course there’s a restaurant.

Thermea Winnipeg is open seven days a week from 9 AM to 10 PM, the only day that they are closed is December 25th, Christmas Day.

Biggest question of all?

What is the time limit? If I come for a thermal experience at 9 o’clock in the morning, go through it three times, end up having a little snooze and not wake up till 3 o’clock, will anyone kick me out? Nope! There are no time limits, no one is checking to see how long you are there as long as you leave by closing time!

Thermea Winnipeg is going to be a huge attraction for our city, I can feel it already! I can’t wait for my fiancé and I to go in the next couple of weeks, we are super pumped! I bet now that you’ve read this review, you’d like to go too right? Well, you know I don’t disappoint, I have a giveaway! Enter below to win a Thermea Winnipeg gift certificate!

  133. Michelle H says:

    I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from those who have tried this out. Who couldn’t use an awesome prize pack like this one? Thanks so much to Peg City Lovely & Thermea Winnipeg for this chance to win.

    Good luck everyone!

  134. Lindsay says:

    Can’t wait to try it out!

  135. Carol M (Lushka S) says:

    One more wonderful place to visit in Wpg.

  136. Soozle says:

    Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg as it’s completely unique and unlike ANYTHING we have here!

  137. Lisa H says:

    I think Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s something different you can do to pamper yourself. Hope to try it soon!

  138. lisa says:

    I would love do this before the wedding to distress.

  139. Natasha says:

    Can’t wait to check it out, hoping in March

  140. Candice says:

    Can’t wait to try out this beutiful spa on one of our many trips to Winnipeg!

  141. Stephen Gordon says:

    Anytime you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life this establishment will suit your nerds to relax.

  142. DavidS says:

    Congratulations on opening your gorgeous new spa.

  143. Lori Lewis says:

    Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg as it has opened up quite a few jobs (a masseuse friend of mine is now working at Thermea!) and it will surely bring US residents up north for a unique spa experience!

  144. Craig H says:

    Can’t wait to try this spa in a quiet little corner of Winnipeg. I would love to take my wife for her birthday (and just about every occasion!) Thanks for this chance to win!

  145. Michelle H says:

    Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s located within the city limits (~5 mins. walk from my house), plus it’s one more reason to love Winnipeg.

    Thanks so much for this chance to win! My husband and I took a quick tour recently and it looks absolutely amazing. I would love to be treated for my birthday in February… 😉

  146. KatM says:

    This would be an awesome “escape” and a luxurious way to beat those winter blues!

  147. Vivian says:

    This is a unique experience that is especially perfect for a winter getaway in our city.

  148. Paula R says:

    would be great to try this spa

  149. Kate Kroeker says:

    The best X-mas gift ever was the gift certificate to Thermea from my grandsons. As soon as you walk into the steamy outdoor area, it feels like being transported to another land. In the middle of the city, but no buildings in sight. My certificate included a beer and tapas. Loved sitting in our bathrobes, curled up on couches, in front of the fireplace and a beautiful view, with a frosty beer and appies. We thought 3 hours would be plenty. Not so! I could have easily stayed another 3. Only suggestion: bring something to identify your bathrobe!

  150. Kathy R says:

    Sounds like heaven! Would be a great way to release job stress!

  151. Raymond Au says:

    This is a great addition to all the other wonderful attractions that Winnipeg has to offer. It’s affordable and within reach wherever you live in the city. I’m looking forward to spending a relaxing day at Thermea with my wife. Thanks for the awesome and detailed review, Natalie!

  152. Carol M (Lushka S) says:

    Great destination for locals and travellers alike.

  153. Christina Heather says:

    There’s nothing I enjoy more than a day of relaxation and meditation while surrounded by nature. I am thrilled to have such a beautiful getaway spot so close to the city. I can’t wait to visit and to soak all my tensions away while breathing in the fresh aroma of the outdoors.

  154. Laurie says:

    I’ve visited Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa (Vancouver Island) a few times while visiting my parents and my sister (it’s a gorgeous Spa with an outdoor space located in a peaceful forest) and wished we could have an equivalent in Winnipeg. I haven’t been to Thermea yet, but with the baths and a great location (the neighbourhood I was raised in), this might be even better! I can’t wait to bring my Vancouver Island family to Thermea and return the favour when they come to visit this Spring! We don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like but who knows? It might convince them to come and visit more often 🙂

  155. Angie says:

    Thermea sounds like such a unique experience. It will be a great addition to Winnipeg.

  156. Soozle says:

    Thermea is a great addition as it is completely different than anything else in the city; Winnipeg deserves something hip and relaxing like this!

  157. Stephanie F. says:

    I think that Thermea is a great addition to our city. It brings a little slice of European culture to North America.

  158. Ramona says:

    Welcoming such a wonderful attributes to this great city Winnipeg! Looking forward to enjoying this tranquil peaceful earth minded spa, with the unique and beneficial Hydro therapy treatments .
    As a professional in this field and instructor that teaches body treatments and massage this makes me very excited to see our city able to enjoy such a treat.

  159. Lisa H says:

    I think it’s a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s a new way to treat yourself to some pampering in our fair city.

  160. Lori Bazan says:

    Thermea is such a fantastic way to spend a day out with gal pals, spouse or mom! I can not wait to try their restaurant!

  161. Jasmine Lozenski says:

    I can’t wait to spend the day here. Winning a gift certificate would be the best thing that ever happened! I have never had a professional massage in my life!!!

  162. Gail Harrison says:

    What a wonderful addition to our city often intolerable weather. It is an Oasis of Invigoration for our depressive winter moods. It is certainly the most uplifting and positive facility in our city to soothe body and soul. I am very thankful Winnipeg has this gem!

  163. Margaret K says:

    Because t’s a nice little oasis in the middle of the city.

  164. Jennifer Hibbard says:

    There comes a time where everyone needs to take a break from reality. A time to relax and be pampered. Thermea Spa looks like just the place!

  165. Donna L says:

    Finding calm outdoors in Winnipeg Winter is an amazing feat! Can not wait to experience Thermeaaaaa

  166. Toby says:

    It looks like such a wonderful get away, yet so close to home!

  167. Tim says:

    Thermea spa is a great activity to do year round. Looks especially relaxing in the winter. We need more activities to embrace winter. What a great addition to our city!

  168. Carla B says:

    This might be the first spa in Winnipeg that I could convince my BF to go with me!

  169. Caitlin Spencer says:

    Any business that adds to the health and wellness of Winnipeg’s residents (Thermea, Freshii, etc) is a BIG win imo!

  170. Joy says:

    This is an awesome experience for Winnipeg!

  171. 204 says:

    I’ve been to the one in Quebec and it’s amazing. Can’t wait to go so close to home!

  172. Lisa says:

    Wonderful to see a business partner with the city to help revitalize the golf course!! We live just down the street and can’t wait to try it out.

  173. Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard says:

    I think this is a great addition as I don’t know of any other location you can stay all day at

  174. Susan Wight says:

    I have been to the Chelsea spa twice and I have been looking forward to Thermea since they made their announcement. We are so lucky to have them here.

  175. Sarah deshane says:

    Thermea is a great new alternative for the people of Winnipeg looking to de-stress while surrounded by nature. I cannot wait to experience this totally new concept!

  176. Leighann says:

    It is something we have never had! Exciting!

  177. christy says:

    Thermea is situated in the perfect location, smelling the burning fire wood on your way in just sets the mood and makes you forget your within the city limits.

  178. Cheryle says:

    I’d love to win and bring a friend

  179. LaVerne says:

    Winnipeg deserves to have a place that is unique and affordable.

  180. jasmine says:

    Because we need an outdoor spa where it’s winter half the year!

  181. Grace says:

    Great article! I’ve been following the news about Thermea since they announced it was coming to Winnipeg and I’ve been really excited about it, so I’m glad to hear that people seem to be enjoying it. My friends and I plan on going there during reading week, and I can’t wait to try it out for myself!

  182. Amaris Nemez says:

    What an amazing place. Winnipeg just upped it’s game with the addition of Thermea Nordik Spa. The location is also fabulous. overlooking the river in Fort Garry. It is a mini getaway that you won’t regret spending 50$ on.

  183. Sabrina T says:

    Any new exciting business is great for Winnipeg. Even better when it allows us to enjoy winter and take away stress.

  184. Pam says:

    Sounds like a great way to get outside during the winter months!

  185. Steph D says:

    Thermea is an awesome addition to Winnipeg because you can never have enough new activities that are suited to our long cold winters, and feeling like you’re miles away from the city while you are still in it is a plus.

  186. andrea says:

    Winnipeg is booming!
    I say why not? It’s about time we got something like this, looking forward to trying the Thermea experience.

  187. Rachelle Baker says:

    This is an amazing addition to an area that doesn’t have much for locals as well as tourists to “escape” to. Fort Gary is such a beautiful area, close to the river and park. This will make an incredible addition to Winnipeg’s spa services! Best Wishes to management at Thermea!

  188. Nadia says:

    I love the idea of having a location and service such as this for those of us who enjoy the stay-cations here in Winnipeg. We don’t ways have someone to look after our kids and having an opportunity to have a day get away with your someone special can be such a treat, especially like this! Thanks for the chance to win I would definitely appreciate the experience!


  189. Deirdre Dowd says:

    Winnipeg needed a place like this to help us make it through the winter.

  190. Kelly G says:

    It will bring people together and a great addition to City Beautiful and Winnipeg Tourism

  191. Laura says:

    I have been looking forward to trying this place ever since I heard their concept! Thanks for the opportunity to win! 🙂

  192. Kathleen Williamson says:

    It looks amazing…we don’t have anything like this in Winnipeg so this is a great addition!

  193. Heidi T says:

    It’s a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s something to do during the long, cold winter. An escape without travelling!

  194. Mandy Whelan says:

    It would be amazing to experience this wonderful addition to Winnipeg. We can always use more places to enjoy winter and relax!

  195. Cheryl Andre says:

    It’s a perfect addition to the wonderful things Winnipeg has to offer. This it truly unique! Can’t wait to go with all my girlfriends for a day of relaxation!

  196. Celine Land says:

    Wow. What an amazing getaway right in Winnipeg. I would love to try this out to relax.

  197. Julie says:

    It will be a great addition to the city. (and hopefully will entice all our friends and family from out of town to come visit us and Thermea!!)

  198. Suzanne says:

    Another unique destination to put Winnipeg on the map. How wonderful to have a great experience for Winnipeggers, Manitobans, and tourists to enjoy!

    Great article! I can’t wait to try this place out. Sounds amazing.

    Our first anniversary is coming up! We’d love this prize!

  203. kalanie ritet says:

    Winnipeg needs a relaxing place for all its hard workers

  204. Lucas says:

    i have an arthritic condition and im sure this will be a perfect place to go unwind

  205. Trish says:

    Great addition for the city. It will certainly attract out of towners just like the original Nordik spa does for traveling to the Ottawa region!

  206. Melissa W says:

    Definately a unique winter experience!

  207. Cheryl says:

    What a great way to get a massage and then relax and enjoy a wonderful day with family or friends!! Thermea allows you to enjoy the outdoors while still being in the city What a great addition to Winnipeg!!

  208. Heather Arnould says:

    A unique experience that I will love to show off to my friends and family when they visit from other parts of Canada and the US. So much more than just a trip to a regular spa for a massage and/or facial as we usually indulge in. The setting is magical too.

  209. Jennifer says:

    With our winters being so cold and long we needed something like this to enjoy at any time of year. I cant wait to experience this amazing spa soon!

  210. Carol M (Lushka S) says:

    What wonderful additon to an already great city. Definitely will be a tourist attraction!

  211. Angeli says:

    Would love to take the hubby and get some relaxation time away from the kiddies!!

  213. Karen Delorme says:

    This is such a great thing for this city! Everyone needs to feel pampered without feeling intimidated. I think people can go here and feel welcomed. I can’t wait to try it!

  214. Paula says:

    We deal with the seasons in Winnipeg for the most part, with grace and strength despite how cold it can get. What an incredible way to actually benefit from the cold!!!! The perfect treat and get away for anyone!! So pumped about it. Hoping to visit before Spring!!

  215. Monique Whitehill says:

    Winnipeg needs destinations and events that encourage us to leave the cozy comfort of our homes and step out to enjoy all the wonderful experiences our city has to offer! Thermea will be a great addition — love the concept, the extended days/hours schedule, the focus on complete relaxation for both men and women. It’s sure to be a hit and I can’t wait to go with my husband 🙂

  216. Kim Amerongen says:

    I had a wonderful experience when I was there during their soft opening – can’t wait to go again!

  217. Marta Vodrey says:

    OH MY GOODNESS – this looks beyond AMAZING. Great review…and no time limit…seriously!? SO RAD. Winnipeg get’s more awesome month to month..yet another cool place the city has to offer. Would love to go with a few gal pals!


  218. gemma says:

    Planning a girls day out with my sister in laws. Can’t wait!

  219. Michelle Carkner says:

    I’ve been to a cyclical spa a little less extravagant in Toronto called Body Blitz, and I was so disappointed there wasn’t something similar here. This is such a great place to go with your girlfriends or significant other, a really awesome concept.

  220. Julie Epp says:

    Can’t wait to go visit this spa!

  221. Brigette says:

    What a great way to enjoy cold months

  222. Amanda kaat says:

    The reason is because there is no other to get this spa treatment in an outdoor environment

  223. Ashley Jade says:

    So Happy this has opened here in The Peg. Winnipeg had nothing like this until now. It is so beautiful there. Doesn’t even feel like you are in Winnipeg. I felt like i was in a gorgeous resort in a gorgeous place, not the peg. What an experience and would love love love to go back! PLEASE!!!!

  224. Tracey Tesch says:

    Great idea can’t wait !

  225. Tim says:

    how did i not know about this?! Im heading there this weekend

  226. sarah says:

    I absolutely love that there are no specific time limits. That’s very unique since most spas I’ve heard of have very structured times for everything.

  227. Kim says:

    Winnipeg so need this spa, just another get reason to get out in our winters.

  228. Kim says:

    Winnipeg so need this type of Spa, just another great thing for our city.

  229. Maya says:

    This is a one of a kind facility that’s a great addition to Winnipeg and can’t wait to try it out!

  230. Nicole H says:

    What an awesome new concept, can’t wait to try it!!

  231. diane geddes says:

    Winnipeg is a great city with lots of great things to do. Nice to add Thermea to the list.

  232. Soozle says:

    Its a great addition as it is completely unique!

  233. Lori Bazan says:

    I believe Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg as 1. It is affordable 2.For those who have company or private plan for massage-this is the way to go and 3. Wnnipegers’ needed an affordable spa experience. I have many friends with chronic pain and fibro and they have travelled to spas tht help them. Now they can just visit Thermea!

  234. Shirley says:

    Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg, not just for the locals but for tourists as well. It could be part of a conference package — business first at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, a round of golf at Crescent Park course one afternoon, then end the week with a thermal experience and massage at Thermea. For us Winnipegers, after a jog or cross-country skiing around the park or just anytime, why not treat ourselves at the spa at Thermea!

  235. Amanda says:

    This is a game changer for our city! What a great addition! Natalie, this was a great review! I’m really excited to go visit!

  236. Gail A. says:

    Your review was wonderful – it covered some things I was wondering about…the whole process sounds so very relaxing and rejuvenating! At last! Winnipeg can boast of something that our winter only accentuates! I would love to win your giveaway, Natalie – thank you!

  237. Allie says:

    Would love to try it !

  238. Kim says:

    We have nothing like this, it’s important to relax and rejuvenate and I don’t think a lot of people remember to take the time for themselves.

  239. Janice Cournoyer says:

    So excited to have this in Winnipeg. Cant wait for my first experience Jan 31

  240. angela says:

    Thermea looks so incredible. I want to visit weekly…I am so thankful to have a place to relax and feel like I’m getting away!

  241. angela says:

    what an incredible place!

  242. Lisa H says:

    I think it’s a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s a spa get-away that you don’t have to leave Winnipeg for. It’s right in our own backyard.

  243. Barb says:

    Love the pricing..no time limit. Wow. .. On site restaurant..and its in our neighbourhood. Looks amazing!

  244. Tracy Morin says:

    On occasion those of fame often have said there isn’t alot to do in Winnipeg. We can now knock their socks off with a world class spa.

  245. Sheryl says:

    This sounds like a perfect compliment to out Winnipeg winters.

  246. Sheryl says:

    This sounds like a perfect compliment to Winnipeg winters!

  247. Jenness M says:

    Thermea is a great addition as Winnipeg needs to be a leader in unique experiences. I see treating my mum to this in the future!

  248. Amanda says:

    This would be a great prize to win for a couple who financially have never been able to afford something like this. Thanks for the chance to win.

  249. Rebecca OKeefe says:

    Finally an affordable spa in winnipeg. Timeto get out and enjoy the weather, and relax at the same time.

  250. Lori Lewis says:

    Thermea sounds like such an amazing place to getaway, without an expensive plane ticket! As a BUSY Mom to 5, it’s so easy to put my needs on the back burner time & time again. But with Thermea within a 15 minute drive from home, the really are no excuses to NOT take a day for myself to relax & rejuvenate! Thanks for the chance to win Natalie!

  251. Trudi says:

    Great addition to Winnipeg! Often the city is viewed as lacking in unique attractions and experiences. Thermea shows that this city is interesting and a great place to have decadent experiences!

  252. Liz says:

    This is a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s unique and it seems like a great way to make use of Winter-peg’s ever lasting Winter.

  253. Melanie W says:

    A great new highlight for Winnipeg

  254. Lynette Beard says:

    Thermea is a great addition to Winnipeg because it’s one of a kind! There’s nothing like it here and it looks amazing.

  255. Brandi says:

    I am so excited about this new experience being offered in Winnipeg! I am born and raised a prairie girl but have lived all over in Alberta, Ontario and Montreal. I love living in Winnipeg and always end up back here but I miss the new and fun experiences you get living in a bigger city. It makes me so happy to see our beautiful city growing and changing!!

    • Natalie says:

      I seriously don’t know if I’ll be able to tear myself away when I go there, it’s just way too cool! Yep, Winnipeg is changing in a positive way!

  256. Heather says:

    Winnipeggers deserve a place like this to go and relax! We’re so far removed from other major cities that we need to have indulgences in our own backyard to encourage a very relaxing stay-cation during the winter! Think of it – no flying, just a short drive to the spa, and spend a night at one of our lovely city hotels or in your own bed (send the kids to a sleepover!!).

  257. GregT says:

    This looks and sounds like an awesome new place that Winnipeg needs.

  258. Rebecca says:

    I think this is going to be one of my go-to places when visitors come to town and I want to give them a memorable and out-of-the-box experience!

  259. Jennifer Arndt says:

    Can’t wait to try it out!!

  260. Patty C says:

    Getaways with friends make the winter seem shorter!

  261. Melissa says:

    Thanks for that great, detailed review!! Been wanting to check it out and now I have to for sure!!

  262. Steve says:

    i know some of my family members want to go and they are completely deserving.
