On October 18th 2014, my family decided to have a family gathering at Dunham's Bay to celebrate my grandparents' 70th wedding anniversary. It was crucial for my family and myself to find a location that had a chef that was educated on how to serve people with special dietary needs because I have Celiac Disease as well as a few... More

Dark, dingy room that had not been updated in many years. Requested months in advance a ground floor room due to physical limitations, but was left to struggle painfully up flights of stairs. Expensive, few amenities, musty smell, a complete ripoff...would not recommend.

Dear BostonMarlena, Sorry to hear your disappointment about your recent stay. Due to the age of our building it is always discussed with a guest about their room location. Built into a small incline the ground floor is truly not the main floor where the pool, restaurant and coffee service are located. Perhaps this was not communicated well enough when... More

Great place to get away with the family. Food was amazing and staff was wonderful. Plenty of space for larger groups. Cabins could use some updates but overall very comfertable and has everything you need. Close to the outlets, grocery stores and resturantes. property is across from the lake and beach access. I would highly recommend this place.

Stayed there with a large group so it was nice to have cabins in a semi-circle with plenty of open grassy area, playground for kids, and large fire pit area. Altho I didn't eat in the restaurant, others with our group did & enjoyed it. Also the gas grills were like brand new & the front porches very spacious. The... More

Jvspen, Glad to hear you and your group enjoyed the cabins and time together. Its always special when a group comes in and experiences the comfort of those cabins in the courtyard. The fire pit and porches on the cabins are always a nice addition. Regards, Matthew Taormino HGM, GM Dunham's Bay Resort More

Hotel rooms are clean but could use an upgrade. The restaurant however is excellent. The food there was better than all the places we ate in town. Our waitress Lara was wonderful and very helpful with directions, recommendations, etc.

Grandchildren loved the fire pit, nice sitting around at night and talking to new people. First time visit not disapointed us and geand kids looking forward to return visit

Although we had several issues with the resort, I will chalk it up to bad luck. I was very impressed with any encounter we had with staff...they were helpful in every way.
