“This resort makes you feel at home, while you're on vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

I worked and stayed with the Oakwood resort for a group having their regional meetings. The staff was consistently helpful, knowledgable, and friendly. The resort itself is in a great location, just a few minutes from the downtown strip for shopping and nightlife. The resort has several features for families to enjoy including tennis courts, a golf course, pool and spa, and it's own private section of the beach ( this is made even better when you look just up the coast to the over crowded public area!). The rooms were comfortable with air conditioners and balconies and the housekeeping staff does very well keeping a lodge-style resort so clean! Overall I very much enjoyed my stay here and hope to host more clients here in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Very conveniently located about a 3minute drive just out of Grand Bend. My wife, 4yr old daughter and myself took the B&B package for 3 nights. Our deluxe room was very spacious with a balcony, king bed, pullout couch, fireplace, fridge, telephone and tv. The resort is very clean and the grounds are very well cared for. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The breakfast had a lot of choice - from scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage (on day 2), pancakes or waffles (on day 2), hash browns, french toast, a variety of cereals and yoghurt, about two types of muffins, assorted danishes and croissants) to beverages (milk, juice, tea, coffee and water). We had a great time at the private beach, children's play area and the indoor pool.
The resort's convenient location made it a great base from which we made several trips into Grand Bend to visit the newly renovated Main Street and great restaurants like the Schoolhouse restaurant, Grandpa Jimmy's Scottish Bakery and Aunt Gussy's restaurant. Would definitely stay here if we visit Grand Bend again.

On June 9, 2012 we celebrated our daughter's wedding. It was a great venue to host a wedding! The staff were wonderful...Diana Simpson is a gem! She was most accommodating with our every wish. She worked long hours to make it perfect for us. John Grouchy too is a great asset to Oakwood as well. He too made it a wonderful experience.
The food was delicious - kudos to the chef - it was also served "hot" to our guests who truly were impressed.
The Oakwood Resort is a beautiful place to have a destination wedding in Ontario. Our guests travelled from Austin, Texas, Orlando, Florida, Washington, DC, York, Pennsylvania, Edmonton, Alberta, Toronto and surrounding areas. They were all very impressed with the accommodations, food, friendly staff, beach and amazing sunsets on the beach.
Thank you Oakwood for helping make our daughter and new son-in-law's wedding dreams a reality!

Thanks Oakwood - you looked after our delegates coming from across Canada. We were always greeted with smiles and warmth from your great staff. Despite a very busy conference schedule most of our guests were able to enjoy walks on the beach, several bonfires, solid food in the Clubhouse and maybe even a few rounds of golf. Felt like it was an upscale summer camp for adults! Thanks for making every effort to look after our needs as a group as well as the needs of our individual delegates. I'll look forward to dropping back in to visit when I'm back in the neighbourhood!

Room Tip: The Executive cottage is great - nice little kitchen, great decks, and a great living room to either...

Stayed last year for a night in August and we were really impressed with our accomodations, we were in the Oak Lodge.New, clean and ,comfortable, it matched all my expectations. We also enjoyed the glassed in pool area, access to the private beach on Lake Huron, well kept and fantastic grounds and a great restaurant that offered a great variety and quality in both their lunch and dinner choices.Nearby tennis courts while not on par with the golf course are easy to get onto and offer another outing for the day. Only bit of a drawback was the front desk lady who wasn't particularily outgoing or friendly but everybody gets to have an off day. This year we are taking a 2 day stay with the all inclusive golf package,really looking forward to returning !

The Oakwood staff were nothing less than excellent during our conference. They were accommodating, helpful and warm. The rooms are modern and comfortable, the surroundings are beautiful. I would definitely go back for a family or personal trip.
