My husband & I were looking for a dog-friendly resort in the Minden or Haliburton area, and I'm so glad we found the Red Umbrella Inn. We spent four nights in one of two brand new executive cottages (not yet listed on their website) and were quite pleased with the accommodation. The cabin, which sits about 15 feet from the... More

We were in Minden for a wedding and stayed here. Mike and Kirk were great hosts. The food was fantastic. There were 6 of us Friday and 8 of us on Saturday. Thanks for the great time, nice surroundings and great food.

The problems started before we ever arrived. I booked a lakeside cottage for the weekend for 199. Per night... Booked in April. Three days before our weekend I was sent an email quoting 350 per night. Contacted them to clear it up. I was told that the cottage was brand new and was worth more than 200 per night. He... More

My wife and I were here this weekend for a party a few miles away and we chose to stay at the inn. We have been here before in one of the cottages but this time were in room 2. Simple but nice, great bed, king sized. There was a wedding on the property Saturday night but it was very... More

We were quite shocked when we received our bill for 2 nights. When we questioned the increase by more than 30 % of what we expected we were told that prices were subject to change without notice. Had we known that the room was going to be that much we would have chosen to stay somewhere else.Our family who stayed... More

Nice spot, friendly enough staff, room was clean but dated. Surprise at check out. A friend made the booking for us. We were told it would be 250.00 per night. Upon check out the total was 325.00 per night + 16.50 x 2 for service fee plus 10.00 for BBQ. So for 775.00 I could have gone to Cuba for... More

Very friendly manager and staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed but very expensive for what you get, rooms are small and everything in it is old and outdated. A $200 per night room should feel luxurious not a poor man's country home with only a double bed for a couple. Needs renovations regardless if this is cottage style stay. However, the... More

We spent two nights here and Mike is a one of the nicest people. We could use his canoes for free to go on the lake. The room was big and clean. We had a fridge and a beautiful view. Every night we spend on his little dock to see the sun go down. It's also a perfect spot to... More
