This is the second time we have stayed at this lodge. The room, 1A, we stayed in was clean and spacious. The toilet is in a separate area from the shower, and it was a bit small, and that was okay, however, if you are a larger person, you may find it a bit uncomfortable. However, the room is close...

We stayed in one of the rooms rather than a cottage as there were only the two of us. To our delight we had many amenities in our room that we weren't expecting. There was a mini fridge and coffee maker as well as a blow dryer. The room was nicely updated and was a very good size. Gorgeous view... More

We are winter warriors! Snow seekers if you will. Having traveled to Ontario many times for snowmobiling, Spectacle Lake Lodge is one of our favorite destinations. A place to call home base as you spend the days traveling in and around the eastern OFSC trail system. Sharon and her staff complete the experience with hospitality and great food. Owner operated...

We loved our stay in the charming, spotless cottage at the edge of beautiful Spectacle Lake. The fall colours were at their height, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting in which to enjoy them. Many thanks to Sharon for her kindness in upgrading us to a cottage! We appreciate Sharon and Lisa's warm welcome and all... More

Last June, we had made a reservation for 2 people and had asked for 2 beds but were told there were non availlable. That was disappointing,but we decided that as we were there for a wedding we would make do. Upon arrival we waited at the empty desk for 5 minutes for someone, and then went in search of someone...

We are local cottagers who have frequented Spectacle Lake restaurant at least 2 times per summer for years (usually for a birthday celebration). We mostly come for the view/atmosphere, as there are a few other places around where the food - in my opinion - is better. Nevertheless we're not sure if we'll be back. On our most recent visit,...

We stopped in this past Saturday on the bike for a nights stay in a cabin. We live not that far from Barrys' Bay and thought we would take our time on the bike and spend the night even though we could have easily went back home in the same day. SO GLAD WE DID! Very hospitable people working here,... More

Cabin was clean with all essentials needed. Sharon was unbelievably hospitable and accommodating ... she even packed us a to go breakfast and coffee since we left early. Food was very good quality and reasonable. Very relaxing place. We will be back next year.

Had a wonderful couple's experience for a snowmobiling weekend. Discovered the location while stopping for lunch the previous year. We are returning this summer. The rooms in the lodge are very comfortable. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel welcome. As for the food, the restaurant is to DIE for! I am French from France, and... More

Stopped in for breakfast on Thursday. The classiest, best breakfast we have eaten in Ontario. Beautiful presentation and great food. The french toast with real maple syrup is a must try. Clean, clean clean everywhere. Good service and a great view, on a very cold winter day. The washroom waste paper containers are a real novelty. They are open for... More
