In my previous review, management responded the Inn was not under new management until AFTER our visit in August 2019. Absolutely not true. It was under new management by late spring/early summer of 2019. The downward spiral began immediately. And their claim that their cancellation policy is like other lodging facilities in the area? Not true, either. Much nicer, upscale lodging...$25 fee to cancel up to a week in advance of your stay.

Once upon a time, this was a clean, customer friendly place to stay on the lake. Their policies were friendly, the manager was friendly, and the rooms were clean. The new manager is completely aloof and uncaring, the new policies seem put in place to deter regulars from coming back, and the last two times we stayed, the floors were so filthy you had to wear shoes all of the time. Oh, and I had to buy toilet bowl cleaner and a toilet brush to clean the toilet myself. Their reservation policy is now “no cancellations, period.” Weather, illness, death - it doesn’t matter - you reserved it, you’re stuck -non-refundable 50% deposit. Sad - been staying there for a number of years. Won’t be staying there anymore - nor recommending it to others.

Karen, we are sorry your experience in August was so bad. Since September, the Inn is under a new manager. Our owners have seen the need for updating the flooring, specifically the carpets in the rooms and we have just recently replaced the carpets in the lower rooms with vinyl plank flooring. We have plans to continue this update on the parking lot level rooms soon. To address your concerns on the cleanliness of our Inn, we are committed to making and keeping our Inn clean, welcoming and family friendly and to address any issues as they are brought to our attention. We do have a new reservation policy that does require a non-refundable deposit for peak season only. Many vacation rentals have this same policy in place. We are aware that catastrophic events, such as death or grave illness do require changing plans. If a reservation needs to be cancelled due to such an event, management has the authority to override the cancellation charge. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention.

We spent a couple nights at this odd little inn. It was quite dated, but very clean. Our room was spacious and had a full kitchen, which we appreciated and used. The grounds and waterfront were lovely. But a sign warning not to use the linens for cleaning fish sort of told us all we needed to know about the usual clientele...

I read reviews for this online and it had all 5 stars. I don't know how. Very dated decor. When we checked in the only thing clean were the sheets. Dirty sink, tub, refrigerator, coffee pot,even the ice bucket was dirty! The outdoor space beside the lake is pretty. But the bbq grill is filthy. Would not recommend unless they get the place cleaned up.

Our family came and stayed for a week at Halesford Harbour and had the absolute best vacation ever!!! We have stayed at two other hotels on SML and holy cow is this place so much better than anything else out the on the lake. The place is clean, the staff is amazing (the manager even printed our fishing licenses for us because we forgot to get them before coming) and the location can’t be beat! This is going to be our new vacation spot every year and we have already told our friends and family about it so they can stay there to. I see there have been a few mediocre reviews lately and all I can say is, some people really need to lighten up or stay home! This place is not the Marriott, and you are not paying Marriott prices. It is an incredible value (half of what we would have paid to go to the beach) and there are so many amenities. I really feel sorry for people like that can’t even be happy on vacation!
