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

I DONT KNOW HOW THEY GET OFF SAYING WHEELCHAIR ACCESS ON THE MAIN PAGE FOR OAKWOOD... I stayed here for a night because we had a corporate meeting the next day. I booked far enough in advance and was told I would be staying in a wheelchair accessible room. First off the building I stayed in did not have automatic... 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

Thank you for submitting your review, I apologize that you did not enjoy your stay due to the noisy children near your room. We did have some hockey teams staying with us that weekend and although we normally don't have any issues unfortunately one team was troublesome. We did approach the team and do involve parents when it is children... More

Our family has visited the Oakwood Resort for many years now & we always really enjoy our visits. During our most recent visit, we started out by taking a short walk to the beach & enjoyed a terrific sunset. We had a great meal at Dave's Pub & the kids enjoyed an evening swim in the indoor pool.

Fun place to grab a meal after work with friends or family. Wing night Thursday is back this year and is great as always. Even if you cant golf you will love Dave's pub. Stay for the weekend and enjoy the indoor pool and hot tub or sauna.

Beautiful location, rustic decor, very pleasant staff. Our stay was all good! We visited off season but it must be a wonderful spot in the summer -- close to the beach, golf course, many restaurants. Rooms were very comfortable and the complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent.
