We came here as an anniversary trip and we received great service. Everything is very close walking distance and access to the private beach in the summer is amazing. The room we stayed in was very nice and cozy and close to all of the amenities. We told the bartender that it was our anniversary and when we had dinner... More

We have stayed here before....about a month ago. We stayed before in a large suite....very costly....but nice and had a good time. This time we are staying in a regular "Deluxe room". The room is nice....but would not pay the in-season summer prices for it. The main complaint we have....is that we just booked the room the evening before we... More

Fun Relaxing Place to be in!!!!! Went with friends. Nice room views. Close the lake Huron and small town center. Good food. Rooms are so well maintained. Washrooms looks brand new. Loved the wood ceilings. Fireplace in rooms. The only thing missing was water and drinks in the cooler plus no safe for your valuables which are small upgrades that... More

I attended a conference here . It was very laid back and in a very lovely setting . The best feature is the staff who are very warm and welcoming. It is not particularly modern or trendy but very casual Lake Huron accommodations. Food is yummy!

We just returned from a 2 night mini get away at the Oakwood. We stay at the Oakwood at least twice a year, always for the seasonal dinner and wine tastings, and sometimes for golfing in the summer. This winter we were unable to go south for a vacation and decided to visit the Oakwood again. We always stay in... More

We stayed here with a group of our friends. We stay here annually with this same group. The hotel is beautiful, service is great. Only a few minor issues: The hot tub water is always far too hot, you can't sit in the tub. The other issues we had was they ran out of eggs, we had to eat scrambled... More

We stayed here in January with a hockey team and really enjoyed this resort. Although it was completely full it did not feel at all crowded. The swimming pool was busy but breakfast service was quick with lots of seating. The buffet was adequate and a good deal with a package. The food in the restaurant was very good. We... More

Overall a good choice for our business meeting with excellent service and meals. Somewhat dated rooms but with all the necessary amenities. Prices for drinks in the lounge were somewhat steep but, when you are a captive audience in the winter I shouldn't be surprised.

Oakwood resort is incapable to entertain couples. It caters to noisy families. Our recent stay was marred by the presence of some 12 kids who were banging on our bedroom doors, literally rattling our room as well as the whole floor of the resort and all this kept happening for nearly 2 hours. The management received several phone calls but... More
