Rooms were recently updated and spacious, although you can tell the bones/layout are all 70's. Dining room has great views, and the service and food was mostly quite good. Bar staff was inconsistent. However, you're really there for the great golf course - a fun, challenging and beautiful course. Didn't get to do much else, but looked like there was... More

Our family have stayed at the Deerhurst Resort during the summer and during the winter seasons, I always look forward to our trips. It's in a secluded area surrounded by hills, trees and the lake.

Stayed just after Christmas through New Years in a two-bedroom Greens condo with my wife and 14-year old son. Was a great unit--even though very hard to find out about them online.

We stayed two nights arriving Dec 31 2011. The resort is beautiful and the people that work there can't do enough for you or your kids. The food I found delicious but pricey. Especially at the Eclipse Restaurant. But overall well worth it and would do it again.
