Beautiful traditional Inn resort with spectacular views. Quiet location and phenomenal food. Cheers to the top chef. Being able to book out the indoor pool is a nice touch. Grounds well maintain and an excellent way to relax, rejuvenate.

Setting and location is nice: Buckhorn is a large and beautiful lake; it’s serene and peaceful there. The resort is also located close to a grocery store and an LCBO; very convent for last minute supplies. They do offer kayaks, hydro bikes and other recreational equipment. Older but functional. Dinner was awesome. The chef knows what he is doing –... More

My girlfriend and I finally made it back up to Westwind Inn this past weekend to enjoy some fishing on Lower Buckhorn Lake, while enjoying the beauty and tranquility that this gem of a lake has to offer. As always the food was excellent, the staff were friendly and very accommodating, great weather and an overall awesome weekend. This was... More

Spent two nights at your establishment in the "Chalet" at $399.00/night - who are you kidding? It is just a room in an outbuilding. We booked thru Expedia and in doing so, we HAD to pay an extra 10% for use of the canoes, kayaks, etc. and the meals were not included! When we questioned this at the front desk,... More

Robert, you really should pay attention to detail and not blame us for your error. You viewed our website filled with information, terms, conditions, rates and you liked what you saw. However, you did not reserve with us. Instead you searched for a “cheapest prices” website and booked with them on line, not with a live person. You found a... More

First off, let me thank Inga, her family and staff for a truly enjoyable and relaxing weekend away. The reviews that state how warm and friendly they are at Westwinds are not exaggerated. From the minute we stepped through the front doors, we were greeted with a smile, and even "Happy Birthday" (for me) from Inga. This was, in fact,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely generous review. We appreciate your comments!!. Guests regularly mention our scenic interpretive boat tour as being the highlight of their stay ;) Sorry about the child.

I've been lucky enough in my life that I've had the opportunity to travel around the world and I've experienced many different interesting places and cool things. Having said that, I'm not always easily impressed...but with Westwind Inn, I feel connected to this special place and every time I get the opportunity to revisit I'm reminded why I love it... More

My husband and I have just enjoyed 3 very relaxing days and nights at the idyllic Westwind Inn at the end of a 2 week trip to Canada from the UK visiting relatives. We stayed in one of the 4 chalets a short walk away from the main inn and found our spacious accommodation to be perfectly charming. It was... More

A delightful family run all-inclusive resort nestled in the Kawartha Lakes. The accommodations were great and the food was amazing; compliments to their fabulous chief. This was a preparation run for a car club event that we are organizing for the fall. I am sure that all participating club members will love the place.

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Westwind Inn this weekend, and it was absolutely perfect in every way. We loved our chalet room with its beautiful lake-facing veranda, and spent a lovely hour before dinner sitting outside reading. The room itself was fantastic, the bed so comfortable and I loved the wood floors and ceiling. The spa bath... More

Our daughter set us up for a night at Westwind to get away from the renovations and construction at our house. My husband and I arrived and settled into our room overlooking the lake, after which we went for a walk around the resort.
