Check-in was early, our room was great, food at the pub outside was very good. The wedding started at 4 and was movie-like in its setting and the supper was superb. After 2 1/2 weeks of travelling...

We arrived at WINDERMERE HOUSE HOTEL marveling at the setting, the colours of the surrounding trees, the busy terrace giving an altogether charming ambiance of a 1st class Hotel. The Bar Menu at Lunch time was quite small but just what we wanted for a light lunch. Our rooms were lovely, and as we were only to be in them... More

We stayed in the cottage adjacent the resort. Clean, comfortable with all you needed. If it was missing something the staff brought it quickly. Pool was great. Food at all the restaurants good. We were able to eat on the verandah two nights. Resort is not waterfront but very close to a public beach that had no one there but... More

We stayed for four nights for a wedding. The hotel has a fabulous location and we had a balcony room overlooking the lake which offered plenty to see. The young staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable and beautifully arranged with lots of pillows. The saltwater pool was lovely especially as we always had it completely... More

This was our third visit to Windermere House and I have to say it was as enjoyable as ever. It is definitely worth the extra money to pay for a second floor room with balcony. Beautiful views of the lake and a great place to sit and relax and soak up the Muskoka air. On this visit the pool was... More
