We purchased a Buytopia coupon for 2 week-end nights for the price of one.
When we arrived, we were greeted by Nicole at the Front Desk. Throughout our stay, her attentiveness and effort to make our stay special...made our stay special. Always very friendly and accommodating.
The room was cozy and warm (It was still around 8 during the day and around 0 at night). The Lodge was made of wood and had that wonderful country "wood" smell when you walk down the hallway towards your room.
Nicole gave us a tour of the Chalet. It was very nice with lots of space for 4 couples
(4 Bedrooms) and a pull-out bed.
The Dinner in the restaurant (Saturday & Sunday), in our opinion was of 4-Diamond (CAA) claibre. Our Server, Alana was professional, friendly and attentive. Her recommendations were perfect. The food was definitely a 5 out of 5, We shared the Ribs on one night and Pork loin the other, along with many of the appetizers-all delicious.
Breakfast in the restaurant was prepared by Nicole. I highly recommend the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal and the "Build your own Omlette" (Portabello Mushrooms, Onions and Fetta for me-Yeah baby!).Very delicious and great value.
I can imagine how much fun this resort will be in the Summer time when the activities (Canoeing etc.) are available. We chose to drive around for a few hours and come back by 7pm for Dinner each evening. We found a Bowling Alley open just a few minutes south of Bancroft, just like a scene out of a 1950's movie (Country fun at it's finest). Had a blast!
We stayed from Friday evening to Monday Morning. We extended our stay by an extra evening for only $50.00, great deal.
The area around is very magical and grounding at this time of year. The smell of the wilderness, the quiet evenings on the balcony, listening to the wind blow through the many trees as they sway, gently knocking into each other.
We will be back and highly recommend this place for anyone wanting nice romantic getaway.
