My husband and I just had a 2-day stay, my 2nd time. The property has changed little in the past 20 years. That in itself should say a lot. On the plus side, the food is still as good ($$$) and staff are friendly. It was unfortunate that the Water spa was not operational due to a broken heater. The outside pool (like an infinity pool overlooking the lake!) is beautiful to look at, but alas it's not a heated one, and was bone-chilling, freezing cold! The lake was warmer! I'm sure if this pool was heated, people wouldn't just sit around sunbathing. If this resort could make improvements in and around the building, e.g. improve the landscape with pretty flowers, and make a walkway on the lawn, so one doesn't have to step on geese droppings everywhere, it would make the place look better and more comfortable for the guests. They could also provide orientation to what facilities and services were available and no, especially during these covid times, at check-in (we discovered the ping-pong, pool and shuffle, and the charming bartender, John, almost at the end of our stay), it would have made for a better experience for sure. So overall, for the price we paid for 2 nights, I think it falls short compared to other similar priced resorts. But I'll end on a good note. The lake is beautiful and the resort is quiet and peaceful. Perfect lake for canoeing and kayaking. The boat cruise was lovely. And the sound of the loons each morning and evening made my day.

FAR FROM A LUXYRY SPA! Where do I even start? As a SPA they failed to mention on the website that their spa was closed so imagine my surprise when I book a stay in a spa and after a 3 hour drive and taking time off work am told their spa is not even open; that's not even half of it. Their WiFi does not work it keeps going on and off, no air conditioning expect a fan that sounds like Jurassic Park is next door so forget about having a good night sleep, the rooms are in DESPERATE need of repair! stained floors and old scratched up furniture & oh did I mention they serve no lunch and the closest restaurants are 20 minutes away? dinner was available but the main course prices start at around 40$ ? Obnoxiously priced set menu & the food is not nearly good enough for that price point. The only open facility indoors was the bar which was the most depressing thing because half the lights were off and there was this annoying none stop buzzing sound from a broken light or something and it would take forever to pay with a card because their machines would not work properly so yeah long story short do yourself a favor and save your hard earned money and go somewhere else which does not trick you with false advertising.

Lovely place. Surprised the room didn't have air conditioning as July in ON can get pretty humid, but we spent the days outside anyhow, and the nights were comfortable. We had heavy rain one day, and there was a leak from the small transom window--probably because the shingles are well past their due date. But the room was fine. Staff was great. Indoor pool was still closed for the pandemic, but we thoroughly enjoyed the canoes & kayaks. Great hiking in the area.
