“Lovely experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2007

We stayed at the Nordic Inn for two nights in September 2007.
Place is conveniently close to Algonquin park, has a very quiet surrounding, pet friendly and easily accessible from highway 35.
We found owners to be very friendly, motel room very clean and breakfast delicious. The place is situated across Dorset scenic tower – so we walked up there as well.
Will definitely recommend the place.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2006

Where to start ? First night there, one of owners told a man that she wouldn't serve him in the restaurant if he was wearing that "cologne" (she was extremely nasty.) Besides it was INSECT repellant. Which is a necessity in Muskoka.
Second morning, we were "rebuked" for 3 people sitting at a table for 5 (however, everyone in the inn was there from our party, so 2 more people sat with us. They have this policy where your meal (under $6) is included with the payment you make fro your room. HOWEVER, they have this INSANE policy that if you DO NOT eat all your food, then you are charged for it. The owners were actually yelling and arguing with guests regarding this, because 2 people couldn't eat all the food because they didn't like it. There is more....but i will let others tell it

  • Liked — absolutely NOTHING
  • Disliked — rude management, insane policies, bugs in room, filthy carpets (a crawling baby, who crawled on carpet got her knees and legs all black from dirt)
  • Tips/Secrets — AVOID this place like the plague
  • Stayed August 2006
