We spent two happy and fun nights here! We booked three rooms to attend a family wedding in nearby Barry's Bay. Check in seamless, rooms delightful, bed and linens comfortable, staff extremely helpful and accommodating!! Steps away from clean and groomed beach and lake is shallow and we were able to swim and play. This resort would be great for... More

Spent a week in cottage #1 and had a wonderful time. The cottage has everything you need and was clean. Just bring your food and beach towels!! The staff was welcoming and very helpful. The cottage is right on the beach. The water is shallow and warm great for the kids and adults too :) Had a campfire every night... More

Spent two nights here. Very friendly poeple and very welcoming. The room was very pretty, mostly white with soft blue colours. I imagine very tranquil for the spa users. Beds were comfortable with nice sheets and plenty of pillows. The food was surprisingly sophisticated. Was not expecting much, but really enjoyed two wonderful dinners, a regular breakfast, and their Father's... More

Stayed here with my husband to celebrate 5th wedding anniversary. The spa was beautiful and very high end and clean. I loved getting a pedicure with a view of the lake! My husband and I had massages and the RMT Bryan was fantastic (highly recommended booking with him). Our room (#15) seemed freshly renovated with new paint, flooring and furniture.... More

The staff there were all super friendly... More

We had a nice, large room (#17) on the upper level, with a view of the lake. The room looked like it had been repainted recently and was tastefully furnished. Our dinner and breakfast the next morning were excellent. It's the best place to stay along highway 60 between Pembroke and Algonquin Park.

Everyone loved the relaxing atmosphere and the food was very tasty with lots of choices. Owners Jeff and Jeff were overly accommodating to meet our every need and we can't... More
