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. I loved the balcony looking over the woods and waters. My stay was delightful from start to finish. I was there on a conference and the staff took great care of all... More

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

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
