We stayed here following a stay at one of the sister "resorts", Dundee, which really, anything could be better than. We stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages with our two small children. The kitchen was pretty good...full-sized fridge and we were pleasantly surprised to find a full range (oven/stove), big sink, nice microwave. They also had very nice cookware (a full set), dishes, cutley, etc. Much better than Dundee in that regard.
The bedrooms each had 2 double beds (so 4 doubles in total) that were comfy, as well as a tv on each side. There was no "living room" in these cottages, but the bedrooms provide enough space. The bathroom was at the back of the cottage and can be accessed by either bedroom by the door at either end. It was awful!!! It was very old, there were leaks from the toilet, bathtub, and sink. The floor was rotted under the linoleum in spots and very soft. The wall was bubbling by the tub from all the water damage. When my husband told the frontdesk they gave us a $25 discount for our remaining two nights (not sure why we didn't also recieve it for the first night).
The location itself is BEAUTIFUL! In front of the cottages there is a very large grassy area perfect for kids to play on. There were several swing sets with slides that our kids enjoyed as well. Nothing fancy, but kids don't notice. I felt the info on the website was a bit misleading regarding the beach. It is VERY rocky. We almost killed ourselves trying to get to the sandy parts. There is also a firepit which would be great once it gets warm enough. I can't comment on the pool as it wasn't open during our stay so we didn't even take a look.
I didn't try the restaurant at the resort as it seemed very pricy, but we did drive about 2 minutes up the road (heading right out of Glenghorm) called Coastal Restaurant and it was delicious and very affordable. They even had some play equipment outside for the kids to play on while we waited.
It was quite expensive when we stayed and that was off-season. They really need to make some necessary repairs to their cottages for them to be worth the money.
