We were bicycle touring before the official season and had hoped to stay at the Normaway because of all the good things we had read. We called and spoke to Dave, who said he could open a chalet for us and even offered to come pick us up! The setting is amazing, just a step back in time with incredible... More

The Good- Love finding good pet friendly options as I mostly travel with my dog. Property is set extremely far back from road with long beautiful tree lined driveway. We stayed in green cabin 35 which is a double bed/jacuzzi option and at the very end of the area with cabins. There were two very large fields and a path... More

The cabins are getting a bit long in the tooth but they are in an interesting location and have some good amenities. We enjoyed the very large whirlpool tub and the swinging bench in the "sun porch" as well as the fold down table. The cabins have BBQs, a common fire pit and a big area for walking / hiking....

This was my first visit to this establishment. We stayed with another couple in one of the two bedroom suites. It had a large sitting area with wood stove, two bedrooms and small bathroom but with a whirlpool tub. The breakfast was included with the stay and was delicious!!! They have homemade bread, fresh eggs, homemade pancakes, great coffee. It... More

The area is just wonderful and you have to see the Indian Summer here. The cabin we were in was run down a bit and many things did not work properly. The place needs to have renovation. Don´t book via booking.com, because information is misleading.

We stayed for 4 nights to go Salmon fishing in the area. We had booked a 2 bedroom cabin but were very pleased to be upgraded to a larger unit (No 18). This made our stay much more comfortable. Fire wood was provided in the unit so we lit the fire every night and it was a delight to enjoy... More

We stayed for three nights in cabin number 22 & 23. The cabin was clean and well equipped for our purposes (be aware there is no food prepping area). Shower worked well, also fridge and microwave. Plenty of firewood was provided for the stove and the communal firepit was great fun. Regular music on at the red barn with dancing.... More

We arrived in the dark for two nights at the Normaway (my husband had 3 different friends urge him to go!) so we had no idea what our surroundings looked like (I highly recommend you have a good understanding of where you are going when driving in this area at night). Our room was clean and modest with two double... More

On the positive side, the staff was very friendly. . .and the place has character associated with being an older inn. (No flat screen TV's here.) We had to change rooms immediately, as our originally assigned room had 50 or more flies all flying around (inside) the one window. After moving rooms, feelings went from disgust to just tolerating that... More

Arrived at Normaway with high expectations based on their website We were to stay off site at The Blue Barn near Dancing Goat Cafe. We arrived at the Barn and entered a dark uninviting converted barn. We had hoped to Cook but gave that up when we saw the poorly equipped kitchen We found 2 barely acceptable mattresses out of...
