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. We ended up just having a peaceful sit out on the dock enjoying the quiet and... More

Last night, my wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Westwind Inn. We booked a lake-facing room. Because it was our 10th and the inn wasn't particularly busy, Inga, the owner, was nice enough to give us a free room upgrade (jet tub), which made my wife happy. We had originally planned to eat dinner somewhere else, but I decided... More

We live in Peterborough and were looking for a quick one night getaway where we could just relax and get away from the city and unwind. We loved the grounds being right on the lake and could tell that it would be a spot that you would love to come to in the summer to be by the water. You... More

The welcome here is felt in the personal care from Inga and staff, in the comfort of the charming bedrooms, and in the exceptional meals from Chef Bryan.

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
