Stayed at the Oakwood Resort Friday Aug 8th. The room was awesome and the beds were out of this world. Our kids loved the pool and the resort. Were going to stay Sat night also but something came up with my work so had to head home Sat am. Staff were great on the front desk with letting us cancel... More

First time here, stayed during the week and booked a deluxe room with buffet. Food was fabulous especially the dinner buffet. Best cheese cake I ever had! Good variety of food and the convenience of having breakfast and dinner at your resort was nice. <5 min. Walk To sandy beach down a private, wooded road with beautiful homes. That was... More

Had a great experience! The staff was so helpful and friendly. The hotel is very modern but still everything you are looking for from a resort in "cottage" country. The food was out of this world. The views were breath taking. I would recommed this resort!

The Oakwood Inn is such a lovely setting but it is getting very tired looking. We paid $300 for a suite - nothing wonderful. The cement patio looked like it had never been cleaned this season. There were cobwebs all over the railing and the soffit above was a "yucky" looking. For the price it was quite disappointing. On the... More

We came here from Toronto with another couple for two nights for some R and R . We ate dinner at the restaurant patio overlooking the golf course. service and food were excellent and prices were reasonable. Rooms were large and well equipped with a fridge.

21 July 2014 Stayed at the Resort July 15-18th Tues-Fri. We have been coming to Oakwood for many years, first with children and now grandchildren. The resort is better than ever before, they have grown and matured with great elegance. Still has the "old woodsy resort feel" with all the modern conveniences. Loved the salt water pool, one morning we... More

We stayed at the Oakwood Resort for the weekend of July 11-13, 2014 and I would say that it was worth the money spent on the resort itself. The $5.00 breakfast daily is excellent complete with all what you need in a buffet breakfast. The resort has an 18 hole golf course which I would consider challenging and worth the... More

We had a suite with the best (and biggest) jacuzzi we've ever seen anywhere, a huge bathroom with loads and loads of towels, a comfortable bed, and a separate sitting area with a small bar/frig setup. For sleeping, the suite was dark and quiet, which for a couple of stressed out GTAers is like a gift from on high. The... More
