“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

took my parents there, stay was a success... really close to hidden valley ski resort. the lakeside suites are quite comfortable. would have liked more eating alternatives within the hotel. a few attractions for kids were available inside the hotel building (e.g. a serious climbing wall).

Room Tip: lakeside rooms are a good value for money

Sincere appreciation for posting a review. Glad you enjoyed the weekend away with your parents and our Lakeside Accommodation in the Bayshore Building, which will be receiving a full renovation this spring and reintroduced to our guests mid-May.

Deerhurst does have a number of delicious restaurants on site; Eclipse, Maple and the Lobby Bar which is located in the main building with Steamers, Pool Deck Patio & Grill open seasonally only a short walk away. We hope your travels will bring you back to our resort and recommend you check our website for packages, savings and best available rates online.

I've been here twice for business and most recently for pleasure for a weekend getaway. Staff were friendly and more than helpful to recommend any additional upgrades that might have been of interest. The property in the winter is absolutely beautiful with many indoor and outdoor activities and the rooms are kept very clean. We attended a comedy show on the Saturday evening which was spectacular. I can't wait to visit Deerhurst for a forth visit.

My husband and I recenly visited Deerhurst Resort for a WOW weekend and it was certainly just that - from the food, the drink, the entertainment, the outdoor activities, the hospitality, the staff - it was outstanding! We stayed in a Summit Suite which was warm and cozy with a spectular view of the property around us. Snowed all day but and couldn't have been more beautiful.

If you want to just hang around by the fire, walk around, or be adventurous, Deerhurst has it all. It was a WOW experience for sure and would do it again and again!

From the moment we arrived for a 3 day stay at Deerhurst resort in Huntsville, I was impressed with the genuinely friendly and helpful service at every turn. Whether chatting with dining room, cleaning, boutique, front desk or spa staff, it was evident that each and every staff member was keenly invested in providing quality customer service as a priority. Given that we were here attending a conference whose focus was on meeting our clients' needs with our excellent product, my "consumer" radar was fully operational and even more aware of each and every little extra touch that made our stay more enjoyable. I was not disappointed. Our room was spacious and well appointed with views of lovely wintery vistas from large windows. The food was wonderful and members of the serving staff were very knowledgeable and happy to share information about ingredients etc. Even though three conferences were simultaneously enjoying the hospitality at Deerhurst during our stay, it was most pleasing to see that attention to detail did not suffer in any way. No line ups for food, elevators or front desk service in our experience. Given another opportunity, we would happily return.

Room Tip: When all of the bathrooms receive an upgrade, I would suggest higher toilets and grab bars. We boome...

With only two easy hours and two turns from Toronto, many planners consider Deerhurst Resort the most complete Ontario meeting facility, especially with our refreshed facilities to include over 300 newly or partially renovated rooms by mid-May, newly created Legacy Hall function space at 11,000 sq. ft., and our new Executive Boardroom. Our team is here to assist whether it is a conference, tradeshow, special event or family getaway – we are an all in one, easy-access, lakeside location for everyone.

My family stayed at Deerhurst for a weekend getaway in Feb 2013. We found the property to be newly renovated and the staff was exceptional. Food service and quality of food was excellent.
We really enjoyed all the winter activities the property had to offer. The Decades show was outstanding! We found the accommodations to be very clean and well maintained with beautiful views. Definitely would go back

Glad you had a great stay and enjoyed snowmobiling. Our guests appreciated having Back Country Tours, our new official snowmobile provider on site this year and took advantage of the guided tours to learn more about the area and 2,000 km trail system. We are glad that you will consider returning. To get the best and exclusive deals we do recommend you sign up for Deerhurst’s E-Club, right from our home page on our website. Also recommend you reserve a Junior One Bedroom Suite which was fully renovated last year or Lakeside Room, which will be receiving a full renovation this spring and reintroduced to our guests mid-May.
