We spent three very restful and happy days at Westwind Inn in March. It was peaceful, the rooms were clean, the showers hot and the food was excellent. It was restful to sit at the dining room window watching the ice start to breakup on the lake. There was a little mink playing on the shoreline. One evening we had... More

Thank you so much for the lovely review from such a lovely couple! It was caring and considerate of our family and staff’s feelings.

We received vouchers as a Christmas gift purchased off NCrowd there was 3 couples who went to this resort, everything seemed great reading the reviews and what we heard prior to our trip but it was total not what we were expecting.

Our usual guests are happy content people who know exactly what they want, do their research, know what to expect. They decide on a room and reserve selecting from 6 room types starting at the lowest cost main lodge garden view to the highest cost chalet suite with king size 4 poster bed and 2 person jet tub. They look... More

My beautiful wife and I stayed at the Inn this past Friday and Saturday night. (Valentine's Day) Right from the minute we walked in we felt the warmth and caring feeling that both the people and the Inn itself exuded. Our room was absolutely gorgeous and the views were breathtaking. We actually caught ourselves on many occasions just staring out... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn this past weekend. The entire place was charming and homey. We loved all the antique dressers and old paintings in each room and throughout the inn. The location was perfect on the water with many views. For winter there were lots of activities - private pool for 2, hot tub, ice skating,... More

I meant to write this review when I returned home in June. I was a guest here for a small weekend conference of approximately 50 people. It was a combination of work/pleasure. Everything was wonderful from the staff to the food to the rooms. Our group basically had the entire resort. It was clean, spacious, and beautiful. I don't know... More

We had a spectacular three-day mid-week stay (Oct. 21-23, 2014). Stunning location, great staff, fantastic food, and Sam their dog as a companion. This place is not for everyone as some of the reviews state...but what attracted us was what they so perfectly described. A bit pricey...but we got more that we expected. We will be back and would highly... More

Went for a quiet fall getaway to see the autumn colours. The Westwind Inn did not let us down when it came to a display of colour. The inn has a cottagey feel about it and that was fine. It was what we were expecting. It was quiet and relaxing. It was mainly couples. The rooms showed some wear and... More
