Breakfast and dinner we top notch meals several courses for each...never left hungry!!! Wonderful staff and terrific hostess. We were having difficulty getting from one of our sports venues... More

We had Valentine's Day dinner at Heather Lodge (we live locally, so weren't staying there). The food was good (the desserts - mostly a selection of cheesecakes - which are from a bakery in Toronto, were fabulous). The servers were attentive and pleasant. The surroundings were nice. However, there was a great amount of time between courses being served. I... More

My husband and I stayed at the Heather Lodge for a weekend in January to get away from the city and to take part in some wintery fun. The drive took us about 2.5-3 hours from downtown Toronto on a Friday afternoon. The lodge is just north of the town of Minden on Highway 35, making it really easy to... More

My Husband and I had spent our honeymoon here in 1988 and decided to return for a visit this past weekend. While it had changed owners I highly recommend Maria and James. Everything from the fireplace in the room, the view of the lake from the balcony in our room, the comfortable seating, the bathrobes supplied for you in the... More

Feel like a b&b cottage, on the 12 Milles Lake. Gorgeous lake view, very good cuisine, nice and friendly people. We were for Thanks Giving Dinner, excellent four course dinner, bring your wine, be happy dinner :-) Not a 5* hotel as per booking.com.

We were at the cottage with friends to look at the fall colours and wanted to have a nice dinner. We had seen Heather Lodge from the water and were impressed so we decided to give it a try. The moment we entered the lobby we were impressed with the warmth exuded by the log interior. Maria met us and... More

We have previously stayed at Heather Lodge but this was our first visit since Maria and James became owners. They are very warm and welcoming and we had a delightfully relaxing time. While maintaining the charming atmosphere of the lodge, they are doing some updating and making some lovely changes. James is an amazing chef and offers an excellent variety... More
