Myself and my partner cannot say enough good things about the Red Umbrella. The room was clean and tidy, the bed was great. The staff met all of our requests cheerfully and quickly. The swimming is excellent as well. Most Importantly, THE FOOD! Every meal was high quality, with some great choices. Again, you cannot go wrong with this Inn!

We stayed at the Red Umbrella Inn for a fishing weekend last weekend. The resort was very comfortable and the food was great.

For fellow travellers: It was a rather odd experience. Firstly, I was called at approximately 8:00pm, enquiring if I was still going to check in. This has never happened to me before, since one usually can book into a hotel as late as 7:00am the next day. Secondly, my roof was ice cold. They had "upgraded" me to a motel... More

Thank you for taking the time to add to our Trip Advisor Page Noemi, I would like to start by apologizing for the issues you encountered and clarify a few things. We do call our guests when they haven't checked in for two reasons, firstly we are a smaller resort and for that reason we don't have front desk staff... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Inn (September 27 - 28) It is an older inn, however our accommodations were clean and comfortable. The view was awesome as well as the service! Obviously a slower time of the season, which meant less activity, however this suited us fine! We only had breakfast at the inn and wish we had... More

My wife is a trail runner and so we stay at the "dog friendly" Red Umbrella Inn for the annual Haliburton Forest Trail Run. This past weekend (September 6-8, 2013) was no exception.
