“Another Great Week at the Beachwood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

This is our 2nd year at the Beachwood Resort, and it was a fantastic time. The Morgan Family is wonderful and welcoming, Andrew who drives the boats is awesome, and the chef - WOW - always out does himself. It is a great family resort, that offers daily tubing/waterskiing as part of the package. You can eat in the restaurant or at your cottage.

We have stayed in the Islandview/Treetop duplex each year. Our friends rent the upper unit and we rent the lower unit, it works out great. These units are the newest of all the cottages and are a little bit more modern. Bedding is provided and for an extra cost towels can be provided. Kayaks, canoes and a paddle boat are all at the guest diposal, along with the super cool water trampoline. Then there is also a salt water pool right beside the beach to also cool off in if needed.

I reccommend when going up to bring some big coffee cups, and plastic cups, as what is provided in the cottages tend to be quite small. No need to bring chairs or loungers all is provided. The town of Buckhorn is about 5 minutes away and it has an LCBO and a supermarket, so it is easy to shop once arriving.

It is a great lake, we spent all days at the beach soaking up the sun, eating, drinking and enjoying this great resort. I would highly reccommend it!

My gf and I, along with 6 of our friends, stayed at Beachwood Resort over the Canada Day long wknd. Our cottage was the Centennial(4bdrms). Right off the bat we were very happy with the accomodations; it was exactly what we hoped it would be. We weren't looking for granite counter tops or soaker tubs, we wanted a rustic cottage on the water and that's exactly what we got. There are 8 cottages on the water all with their own docks and yard area. We had all the privacy we needed and nobody seemed to notice or hear us. The grounds people we very friendly and helpful. Also, the owners were very polite and welcoming. There were lots of free things to do, ie: kayaking, waterskiing, tubing, pool, etc. All in all our long wknd could not have been better. Oh, and the unltd firewood was a huge bonus! It was made very easy for us to just enjoy the wknd and we will definitely be back!

It was our first time to the Beachwood Resort and I must say it was a wonderful experience and a beautiful wedding. Congratulations again to Tara and Matt and thank you for having us be part of your day.
The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful; we had a great 1 bedroom suite (Starboard1) with a view that was nothing less than 100%.
The Beachwood Staff put on a great wedding, kept the rain away, and made our stay quite comfortable.
Thank you to the Beachwood Resort staff and we will see you again.
David and Tracy :)

my partner and another couple stayed at beachwood in february 2010 for a weekend of winter activities. We were arriving after work from Toronto in a snowstorm and instructed to call the neighbour's cell when we were close (the family would be at their son's hockey game) so she could meet us and show us to our condo. What amazing community and family owned service. We stayed for the weekend, travelling to Silent Lake for some cross country skiing. The condo and grounds offered us serene privacy and clean, organized and cozy lodging. The same group is returning this year for a similar adventure. This type of resort would not be to my taste for a summer time rental (i like more privacy and less community) but for me and my group, perfect for the winter. I have no doubt that the service and familial atmosphere are the same all year 'round.

Booked by my father & step-mother, we went on the 2010 July long-weekend. My children and I shared a one bedroom condo. Other family members shared a three bedroom condo below us and another one bedroom condo beside us. Our rooms were spacious, with windowed/screened balcony/porch. Each of the condos we stayed in had a small living area and kitchen - bigger kitchen in the three bedroom unit. We had the breakfast/dinner meal plan, so we didn't do any cooking - except for marshmallows at the campfire pit.

We had a great time! This is a family run resort in rural Ontario - don't expect a posh, luxurious, 5 star snooty kind of place. The owners are very friendly, accommodating people who work hard to keep their guests happy in a down-to-earth, cottage like environment. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the service is great, I have no complaints whatsoever (the kids loved the food too).

The resort is on the shores of Buckhorn Lake where you can go swimming, bounce on the water trampolines, take a paddle boat out for a spin, or borrow one of the resort's canoes or kayaks (or even bring your own for that matter). The beach is small, but my kids certainly had enough sand to play with. The pool is nice if you don't want to swim in the lake. There's water skiing and tubing (which was awesome - everyone loved it), and plenty of life jackets available in all sizes. The kids had fun fishing off the docks with the new rods their granddad bought them. Overall, we had a great time and would love to go back in the future.

myself, my partner and two children came over to canada from england for a family reunion. My sister who I must say organises everything beautifully, booked 2 cottages and a room in the lodge for all of us. I will never forget my time at your resort from the lovely surrounding areas, the lake, the facilities, the company, and the great time we had spending time together. It was aholiday we will be talking about for years to come and we will be taking many found memories back to the uk with us. Thanks for a great holiday and see you in near future carol and mike williams and all the family.
