My family went to the Westwind Inn a week ago; and left feeling very disappointed. The reviews were glowing, now making me wonder if they were real or a plant. Dont get me wrong...the location is stunning, the facilities are rather dated, and the food was ok. It was the price charged and the relative use of "relatives" to service... More

Thank you for your comments. Our resort is not suitable for young children. We mentioned on the phone that we are a quiet resort for adults. Our website describes our guest room as comfortable for two although there is a sleeper sofa if required. There are numerous family resorts which offer kids programs and large cottages with multiple bedrooms for... More

This resort has the 70's written all over it. It must have been a beautiful place than. We rented a room in the newer, smaller building near the lake. The lake view from the balcony was spectacular and the room was very nice and large, with a double jacuzzi in the bathroom. The dining room is very large, but cozy,... More

Thank you for the nice review. The main lodge was built in 1986-7 entirely of western red cedar, by Viceroy Homes and is relatively new compared to the many over century old resorts in Ontario. We strived to have it look and feel like a rustic Rocky Mountain Adirondack Lodge, filled with antiques, art and memorabilia rather than a modern... More

What a fabulous time Karyn and I had this past weekend at Westwind Inn on Lower Buckhorn Lake. Despite some pretty sketchy wet and windy weather at times we managed to make the most of it and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves... and best of all we returned home feeling very relaxed. A big shout out to Kristi Jenson and her staff... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Chalet at Westwind Inn. The room was gorgeous, and we felt at home and relaxed right away. The resort is situated right on the lake on a picturesque and very well kept property. The staff was phenomenal and were always quite eager to assist us and ensure that... More

For several years I looked somewhat longingly at this location, but always felt it was more than we could afford. However,a gift of money from our children made it possible last fall. We were impressed with the beauty of the area and the meals were spectacular. Unfortunately, a number of little things left us with a less than favourable,warm impression.... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here for a small conference. We stayed in the main building on the second floor in a room with a balcony overlooking the beach area. Our king bed was comfy (actually 2 twins put together to make up a king), although I would have preferred down pillows and a duvet to the puffy... More

We stayed as a couple and really enjoyed our visit here. The location is lovely and the staff are great. The property is nice and goes for a classic rustic, olde world vibe, with plenty of wood, pictures and books. The site has a lot of space, fitting in a beach, pier, trail, putting green, pool. The restaurant has scenic... More
