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

Thank you for the nice review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the food. The colors were spectacular and there was lots to do as the weather was nice. Sorry your room was not made up. We had several housekeepers on duty all 3 days. If they find that the room is occupied when they arrive, they leave... More

Not enough for the $800 2 night stay. Two towels, one small bar of soap, no phone, no TV to speak of, no mini-fridge, two twin beds for two elderly folks. Balcony door needed caretaker to open. Drawers in the single dresser so hard to open, unusable. No luggage rack, no end table. Were told at checkin there was no... More

Comfort Inn is definitely more suitable for your needs. Lots of tv channels to keep you entertained and a phone so you can keep in touch. .I am surprised you selected us. However a cookie cutter chain motel is not remotely similar to our lakefront inn. They are surrounded by cement and asphalt on a busy street with traffic speeding... More

My first impression of the resort is like a hide away, surrounded by lush greens, beautiful gardens, sitting on a lake. Resort booking included breakfast and dinner, and you can order from menu, for breakfast we had eggs bennedic, done just right, for dinner we chose steak both nights, mixed with a wonderful array of fresh veggies and potatoes, delicious!...

Stayed here with my boyfriend last weekend for my 23rd birthday and we had an amazing time. The property is absolutely beautiful, the surrounding town is very small but there is a surprisingly large number of things to do. There is a berry farm near by, the Kawartha winery as well as the Gallery on the Lake is next door.... More

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
