My husband and I had the great good fortune to stay at the Rockgarden Resort over the long July/August weekend 2016. From the warm welcome we received at 9pm, together with a home cooked meal, to the fond farewell with a beautifully cooked breakfast at 6.30am, there was not a moment that did not delight us. Our king sized bedroom... More

Splurge and stay on the upper level with a balcony and view of the lake. Its worth every penny. Angela and Ozzie were amazing hosts! I extended my stay because I loved it there so much! No its not cheap. If you want cheap, rent a basic cabin in a campground. This is a resort where you can do a... More

The cave was fascinating and worth the hike if you were staying at the resort, but not worth the drive and small fee to just do the cave hike. It's a very small cave and took 10 minutes to walk there and back. We were on a hiking vacation and visited many amazing sites across Manitoulin Island and Bruce Peninsula.... More

Our Cave Visits are never advertised as a “hiking experience“. Looking back at over 40 years of building our resort, I am most proud of the cleanup we did at the cave to show the natural beauty of the limestone formation. To provide the cave visits to the public is meant for the visitors enjoyment. So, is the cave “horrible“... More

What a perfect location for an anniversary gettaway! The property, waterfront view, rooms and dining were fantastic and the host (Angela) was fantastic!! This resort would have been a 5-star rating if the spa and pool were operational. Despite this, we had a wonderful stay.

We really enjoyed this very quiet resort with magnificent views from the hotel balcony, great food and hot wood fired sauna after long day on the bike. We came here as a base for 3 days of road cycling and we were not disappointed.
