“Great place to relax, take in the view, eat good food, great hospitality from the staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

We wanted a fall get away ,in the tradtion of a family owned lodge (which is so diifficult to find today , we always went to Muskoka but all the family owned lodges are either now gone or owned by a chain and are costly for what they offer.)
Thank goodness we went to the Irwin Inn, its family owned by Dennis & Patty Irwin . If you want a lesson in how to treat customers then this is the place for you, great accomendations, the meals were tasty for both breakfast & dinner . Yummy .. and the menu had plenty to offer to all taste, the best part is the view from the dining room right on Stoney Lake and its worth the price of admission & priceless.
The property is beautiful , lots to do, horseback riding , golf, or simple checking out the falls colors from your private deck or gazing at the fireplace in your room. Who needs Muskoka branch out and vist the Irwin Inn @ Stoney Lake , for attentive service , good food and you will have a great vaction memory with your family, we can hardly wait to go back . Thank you for a new tradition Cheers Paula Prince

“a little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2009

We havent been to the Irwin in over 8 years, and was looking forward to the short getaway we had this past week July 2009. Like many years ago the hot tub and sauna were still NOT up and running! , also to our surprise the pool was out of service as well for a few days, no television with DVD in our Inn room, the very old boat was broken down not allowing for the sunset cruise that's offered. The restaurant staff were very accomendating and pleasant, but all and all we felt the Inn was in need of alot of updating, the park the rooms and especially the lawn cabins. We will not be returning any time soon unfortunately.
sorry.....

“Awesome family vacation spot for a multi-generational group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

Right on Stoney Lake... beautiful views, friendly and helpful staff, country inn style accomodations, fine dining. The people at Irwin Inn are like family. They truly want you to enjoy your stay at the Inn, and will go out of their way to make it happen. Lots of activities for every generation -- kids recreation, adult activities, great food, opportunity to meet people and build lasting relationships.

“Like a great weekend with amazing friends !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2008

The Irwin Inn experience is like none other I have ever had before !! It truly was like a weekend away with my best friends.. from the moment we arrived we were treated like family and provided with every amenity you could imagine !

The location, the food, the hospitality and the rooms are out of this world ! It is so rare in this fast paced impersonal world in which we live, to be greeted by the owners and taken care of like their own family.

We continue to return to The Irwin Inn every chance we get .. and each visit reveals something new and charming we did not discover previously.

We would highly recommend that you discover and revel in the joy that is so abundant at The Irwin Inn!!
