Whether you’re looking for a cozy change of scenery or an escape from the pre-holiday season hustle and bustle, we could all use a relaxing winter getaway. From soothing urban retreats that offer easy access to the city’s attractions to rustic lodges that are ideally located for outdoor activities like ice fishing and snowmobiling, these are some of the best accommodations in Sudbury for a winter vacation.
Parker House Suites offers three charming rooms within walking distance of downtown Sudbury’s dining and shopping. Dating back to the 1920s, Parker House is set in one of the oldest buildings in the city, making this accommodation a particularly wonderful choice for history buffs. The building’s century-old details are balanced by modern touches like keyless entry, Wi-Fi, and HD TV. Guests can stroll to Sudbury’s many excellent restaurants or those who prefer to stay in and avoid the wintery weather can cook in the well-equipped kitchenettes found in each suite. Opt for the Alder Suite, which includes a bathroom with jetted Jacuzzi tub, or the Studio Suite, which is decorated with a lovely fireplace.
Perched on picturesque Kukagami Lake, Sportsman’s Lodge Wilderness Resort offers a back-to-nature hideaway surrounded by over 5 acres of pine, birch, maple, and spruce trees. Guests can choose to stay in the main lodge, a three-story pine building with 13 guest rooms and a comfy common area; or step up the home-away-from-home ambiance in one of the private cottages, which feature living rooms and kitchens with fridges and stoves. The surrounding area offers prime conditions for days spent cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing, after which guests can warm up with a homestyle meal in the onsite dining room.
Set in the former home of notable local activist and politician Grace Hartman, Hartman House offers two cheerful rooms and daily house-made breakfasts. Rooms feature quaint antique furniture and his-and-hers bathrobes, with the George Room also including its own electric fireplace. Guests can also cozy up by the fireplace located in the comfortable shared common area, or bundle up for a scenic wintery walk along the nearby Bell Park Walkway overlooking Ramsay Lake.
Auberge du Village’s old-world-style suites are perfect for a romantic getaway in Sudbury. Guests are greeted with a free bottle of wine when checking in to one of the guesthouse’s two suites, both of which include cushy king-size beds and welcoming fireplaces. The Campagne Suite kicks the coziness up a notch with a bathroom that features a large soaking tub, along with a reading nook where guests can while away the afternoon. Fitness packages give guests access to the nearby YMCA Center For Life to enjoy the steam sauna or take a yoga class.
Experience a wintery lakeside getaway at family-owned Agnew Lake Lodge, which offers 15 cabins with full kitchens. Woodstoves and electric heat make these homey cabins ideal retreats for unwinding and admiring the snowy views of Agnew Lake. An 8-person outdoor hot tub onsite allows guests to warm up while still enjoying the fresh air and beautiful lakefront views. During the day, guests can take advantage of nearby snowmobiling trails and ice fishing opportunities or head to Boogie Mountain Ski Hill, which is located about a 20-minute drive away, for downhill skiing.
Located in Copper Cliff, less than a 10-minute drive from downtown Sudbury, Copper Kettle Guesthouse is an inviting destination for a winter getaway. The guesthouse offers one- and two-bedroom suites set in a turn-of-the-century building. Featuring hardwood floors, separate bedrooms and living areas, as well as full kitchens, Copper Kettle Guesthouse aims to offer all the comforts of home. Rooms also come with high-speed Wi-Fi and HD TV, plus laundry services are available onsite. It’s a convenient base for discovering Sudbury’s many winter activities, from gliding along the Ramsay Lake Skating Path to downhill skiing at Adanac Ski Hill.
Disconnect and get some much-needed offline time at Fox Lake Lodge, which offers intentionally “off-the-grid” cabins set amid the landscape of the Canadian Shield. The lodge’s eight peaceful cabins can accommodate between two to nine guests and feature pretty views of Fox Lake. TVs, phones, and Wi-Fi are purposefully absent to allow guests to better connect with the natural environment. Guests can curl up with a book, explore the scenic surroundings, or chill out in the onsite hot tub and sauna.
Escape to a Spanish-influenced refuge at the Hacienda Bed and Breakfast. Wooden beams, wrought iron accents, and colourful decor aim to recreate the feeling of a Spanish or Mexican hacienda transported to Ontario. Guests can choose from a double, queen, or king room, all of which come with smart TVs and fluffy bathrobes. Room rates include homemade breakfasts, which focus on fresh baked goods and local ingredients, including veggies and herbs sourced from the owner’s garden. The common areas offer numerous places to snuggle up and relax, from an onsite sauna to a large den with a fireplace.
No matter which Sudbury spot you choose, we know you'll have a cozy, memorable adventure!
