We had a wonderful weekend at the Westwind Inn. The Inn was beautiful and rustic. The owners were helpful and accommodating. The grounds are stunningly beautiful and I look forward to seeing it in all seasons. The food was absolutely fabulous and filling. We will be back to this relaxing and beautiful Inn. Thank you to the Jensen's!

My husband and I spent the weekend of October 2 to 4 at Westwind Inn. I booked by phone on September 28, a lake view room in the main lodge building. The rate was $700.00 for the two of us for two nights, including two dinners and two breakfasts. Added to this rate was a 10% resort fee, plus taxes,... More

Thank you for the input Cindy. As a seasoned traveler and someone who worked In tourism for 40 years, your homework possibly led you to believe Westwind Inn was something different. We try to make the rooms comfortable and affordable. Its a hard balancing act to constantly upgrade keeping with the latest trends with 36 bathrooms. The room you chose... More

Just as they advertised, it was a quaint, quiet, rustic, scenic, couples resort, just what we were looking for and it didn't disappoint. Now granted the weather did not co-operate in that it was very cold so was not able to take advantage of their water amenities but it seemed like they had lots of different choices. Did walk on...

Once more I am inclined to sing the praises of Westwind Inn and this area of Ontario. Let me note that our weather was by no means optimal, and still we had a wonderful time. Westwind Inn is a blessing in and of itself but I think I have never fully remarked in it strategic location. It is so situated... More

Ontario Resorts alerted us to Westwind Inn Buckhorn that last minute rooms were being offered. No meals, just the room and access to both pools, canoes, kayaks etc. We had already shopped around and found something that suited us, so we had a price in mind. Inga matched that price and we booked two nights. The Inn is filled with... More

We've been going to Westwind since the mid nineties and always thoroughly enjoy our stay. Our most recent visit was late August 2015. It is so easy when there to breathe deeply, relax, receive and enjoy. The ambience is beautiful and very peaceful inside and outside the resort. The staff is warm, gracious, caring and eager to please. The rooms... More

Beautiful traditional Inn resort with spectacular views. Quiet location and phenomenal food. Cheers to the top chef. Being able to book out the indoor pool is a nice touch. Grounds well maintain and an excellent way to relax, rejuvenate.

Setting and location is nice: Buckhorn is a large and beautiful lake; it’s serene and peaceful there. The resort is also located close to a grocery store and an LCBO; very convent for last minute supplies. They do offer kayaks, hydro bikes and other recreational equipment. Older but functional. Dinner was awesome. The chef knows what he is doing –... More

Spent two nights at your establishment in the "Chalet" at $399.00/night - who are you kidding? It is just a room in an outbuilding. We booked thru Expedia and in doing so, we HAD to pay an extra 10% for use of the canoes, kayaks, etc. and the meals were not included! When we questioned this at the front desk,... More

Robert, you really should pay attention to detail and not blame us for your error. You viewed our website filled with information, terms, conditions, rates and you liked what you saw. However, you did not reserve with us. Instead you searched for a “cheapest prices” website and booked with them on line, not with a live person. You found a... More
