This was a pretty good resort. I had a 2 day conference there, so I was there for 2 nights and 3 days. This resort is 2 1/2 hours north of Toronto. The rates were fine (got and on-line AAA rate, had missed the window for the conf. rate). One night's deposit and the second night was charged to my cc 7 days prior to arrival (if this wasn't for work, I wouldn't have like that kind of pay play...must be a weird cancellation policy. Arrival was smooth. I got a Jr. Suite. Very nice furnishings. Kichenette, balcony (with adirondack chairs)...but a view of the parking lot (no biggy). Living room with gas fireplace (real nice). Two queen beds which were very comfortable. The room was very clean. Very modern bathroom. A few items to note. There is only one mirror in the whole suite...above the sink in the bathroom. There was no full length mirror. I was in building #54 ...kind of dark walking at night. No security locks to get into the building. This resort is kind of out in the middle of nowhere, but I think the individual buildings should have some sort of lock to undo inorder to get inside...lots of common areas opened up for anyone to walk on it and wait to attach someone (being female, I always think of this). I didn't feel very safe. The conference rooms, food, and everything concerning the conference went fantastic (even the free wi-fi for the conf. room was seemlesss...grade A for that). The gift shop was very limited (and I picked up a bottle of water from their cooler to purchase...but my hand got all sticky from something dripping all over the water bottles (ended up going down to the center of town to a mini mart for some essentials). You need a car at this place. There is no on-site restaurant. There is one about a mile down the road and they may have shuttles, but I think they need something right at the resort site. This would be a fantastic summer resort (for the lake and activities offered). Outside pool was nothing special and the indoor one was just standard (not worth the mandatory "resort fee") during this in-between time...Fall (too cold for lake stuff and no snow for skiing. One other thing to note is that there are beautiful golf courses surrounding the resort (most rooms in the building I was near had them). However, there is also a huge population of Canadian Geese...and geese droppings everywhere. I had to skip almost like a game of hopscotch to get from my car to the stairs of my building to aviod stepping in these droppings (pretty gross). Overall, I probably won't return to this resort (unless it was for business) but it would probably be alright for a weekend getaway.
