We have previously stayed at Heather Lodge but this was our first visit since Maria and James became owners. They are very warm and welcoming and we had a delightfully relaxing time. While maintaining the charming atmosphere of the lodge, they are doing some updating and making some lovely changes. James is an amazing chef and offers an excellent variety... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights (Aug 17-22/14) at Heather Lodge on 12 Mile Lake near Minden, Ontario, in a king, lakeview suite. The Lodge is absolutely charming - cozy and welcoming in an old-world sort of way, yet with all modern amenities and some very nice luxurious touches to make us feel pampered and special. The room...

We went with a family group for dinner and were very satisfied. For $40.00 a head we had a five course meal in a charming dining room, overlooking a lake. They are not licensed but you can bring your own bottle and there is no corkage fee. It is quiet, the food and service excellent - what more could you... More

My husband and I enjoyed our first multi-day vacation away from home and family at Heather Lodge. We enjoyed staying in the Deluxe suite. The room was immaculate and beautifully appointed. The soon-to-be-repaired stairs to our room were a little steep, and the beautiful bathtub will soon be enjoying better water pressure also. We loved the complementary use of the... More

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at this beautiful lodge. We needed to get away just to relax and enjoy doing nothing. There is a beautiful dock with chairs to lounge, canoes, kayak and a peddle boat. We had a lake view room on the ground floor as I am handicapped and it was lovely and comfortable. We... More

Heather Lodge is a casual haven of relaxation and delicious fare. We were looking for some R&R after our daughter’s wedding and booked based on price and great reviews. Our room had a balcony with a lakeside view, a king size bed and a fireplace. The innkeepers are gracious hosts, helpful, friendly, but not intrusive. Simple activities are offered: canoes,... More
