let me start off by saying that this resort is in an absolutely gorgeous part of Ontario! it is breathtaking in the winter !!! as im sure it is in the summer as well!!
The resort is massive I couldnt believe how big it is! We stayed in the main building the first night, we expected a little more considering the price. There was no bar fridge in the room which surprised me because even smaller hotels have them. Anyways it was still a nice suite, until we realized the heat wasnt working. Because we didnt realize this until 1 in the morning we slept in hoodies and track pants. We called down the next morning and a guy came an looked at it and said there was nothing he could do and he would send another guy! So we asked to be moved from the suite. They upgraded us for free to a bigger room. It was in the buildings which have real suites, bar fridge, kithnette with stovetop, microwave etc, they dont have elevators in the buildings(heads up)
We had breakfast Saturday morning, it was a buffet, just basic stuff nothing that exciting and it was $20 each! When we asked about sunday brunch it was $31.50 each, at the eclipse. We also had dinner at the Maples, we each had a burger and fries which was delicious!! and great value! Definitely try the desserts we had the lava cake it was to die for!!!
They have lots of activites there as well! Skating , snowshoeing cross country skiing and snowmobiling just to name a few. We enjoyed snowmobiling for a few hours on Sunday. It was fun, thankfully my husband has driven 4wheers etc before because they dont give you a lesson. There are amazing trails up there and it is easy to get lost if you dont know where to go or you arent paying attention. If you get cold easily like me buy some toe and hand warmers at the store or bring some with you. My toes were freezing the whole time even though I had heavy boots. They provide you with all gear which is great! The helmets didnt take long to frost up though which is dangerous!
Overall it was ok. If you are planning a getaway to be outside and enjoy the winter this is the place ! But If you want to relax I would go with another resort. I did not think that it had a good value though. Rooms and food priced to high! Thanks
