“Impromtu Sept. getaway for wife and I”
My wife and I looked at the favorable weather forcast for this past wknd and quickly booked a stay and play at Cobble Beach. It is a two and a half hour drive for us, but the drive is very scenic and enjoyable. We did it for the first time last year , and enjoyed it so much, that we thought we should go back. Arrive Sunday, leave Monday.
Played golf in the afternoon, and then went to the beautiful patio overlooking Georgian Bay for cocktails. Back to room upstairs to freshen up, then down to dining room for dinner. Sunday was Prime Rib dinner special. Soup or salad, beef, and desert for $35.00. My wife chose the special. I had lamb. Loved the lamb, but my wife's prime rib was so great that I wished I had picked it too. Good news was that the portion was so large, that she couldn't eat it all, so I got to have both! Both entrees were cooked to perfection. We have dined in many upscale places with all the various prices. We found the pricing very reasonable for the quality of the food and the quality of the setting. Last year we went earlier in the season, so were able to dine outside. What a treat that was. In the morning we had breakfast there. Continental breakfast is included with your lodging. We both had the continental, but I supplemented mine with an additional breakfast entree. Again very reasonably priced, with ample quantity, great presentation, and great taste.
This is one of my wifes favorite places in the world. In fact, she says that while looking out over Georgian Bay, she feels like she is in Nova Scotia or P.E.I. or Vancouver area. We will definetely be going back. There are only ten rooms upstairs. Really nice setup. We are already thinking about who we can invite to join us next year. Would love to get four couples for golf and stay over.
P.S. golf course is outstanding!!!
