Our first visit to Pine Vista and everyone loved it ! The M.O. B. ( Matilda , Oliver & Beatrice) had so much fun participating in all the activities , the crafts, swimming in the lake & pool , canoeing, fishing , racing to the candy cart and most importantly, making new friends. Recommended by friends Pine Vista was still an unknown to us so we didn’t really know what to expect. It exceeded our expectations! Such a beautiful location , well maintained, clean & above all friendly! Needless to say we have re-booked for next year . Thank you everyone at Pine Vista for giving my family such a wonderful week! We can’t wait to return. N.B. Having been notified well ahead of time we brought our own beach towels & were well aware that due to Covid the laundry facilities were closed. NO PROBLEM!

We just returned from our first time at Pine Vista and we had a fabulous time! 4 adults and 3 children ages 5, 8 and 8. There were lots of activities, swimming (pool and the lake), fishing, crafts, canoe trip, triva, tie dye, basketball, tennis, badminton and the list goes on. The kids camp was run by friendly, fun and energetic staff that offered some really wonderful creative crafts and activities for all ages. There was an end of week celebration for the kids that included awards and personalized medallions. The cabins were very clean and the perfect amount of space. The kitchen was very well equipped. If we needed any clean sheets or towels at any point in the week the staff promptly provided them. All staff were expectionally friendly, helpful and ensure guests enjoy their stay. The grounds are beautifully kept. We can't wait to return next summer, so many special memories! Our kids were all sad to leave after having so much fun and making some great new friends! Thank you to all the staff at Pine Vista for such a fantastic week!

Resort was nice. But no laundry facilities onsite. That’s why rating it 1 For a weeklong trip it would have been convenient to have a coin Landry on-site The swim wear and beach towels needed a wash by day 4 so had to drive 25 mins away to laundromat and wait for 3 hours till laundry got done.

We are sorry that you found it inconvenient that our laundry facility was closed during your stay. As part of our COVID-19 protocol we have all indoor spaces closed in order to keep guests and staff safe. In order to reduce the need for guests to do laundry, we provide beach towels, bath towels, linens and blankets. We would have been happy to lend beach towels to you during your stay. It is always our goal to keep guests informed so that they are well prepared for their stay and for this reason we send out pre-arrival emails to all guests with all of the information about our amenities, our facilities, our COVID protocol and our recreation offerings. We care very much about our guests and want everyone to know in advance what we offer and what they need to bring to enjoy their vacation with us. Our friendly staff are also available daily and are happy to help our guests with anything they need. Other than the laundry facility closure, we hope that you had a wonderful holiday and were able to enjoy all that Pine Vista has to offer.

Our children had treated us for a weekend getaway in February 2020. We loved it so much and had mentioned that we would love to return with our grown children. Our children surprised us for a Christmas gift and came along for a weekend getaway this February. We had a wonderful time including our 3 year old granddaughter. We were able to skate, snowshoe, tobagon and cross country ski. We enjoyed having an outside firepit right at our cottage with endless supply of firewood. Fireplace inside was also very comfortable. Due to Covid we were not able to use the outdoor jacuzzi.

Thank you Kevin, Julie and the wonderful team at Pine Vista for an unprecedented week in an unprecedented year! Our family was counting down the days to our annual summer week at The Maples cottage and you didn’t disappoint. New safety protocols were explained and maintained making us feel secure without losing the amenities and activities that make your resort stays so memorable year after year! Cleanliness, service and genuine connection with your guests are always 5 star! The recreational team did an excellent job changing Kids Klub this year to ensure our girls had fun safely- the awesome Candy Cart was DEFINITELY a hit! Proud to be an ambassador for this slice of heaven on Stoney Lake and thank you for the care and thought you put into following the required protocols so we could have just as awesome a time as we do each year- impressed and grateful for this family time together!

We are 'long time' guests of this amazing resort (19 years & counting) & so we just knew that with Covid this year & all the restrictions that come with it, Pine Vista would still find a way to 'make it fun' for all & still keep everyone safe. Their new Candy Kart was a huge success with our Grandchildren this year & for Pine Vista to "jazz up one of their golf carts with a Caribbean theme...including a fake palm tree & music from Mowana" is just so them! Our entire family absolutely luv coming to this resort, as Pine Vista's friendly & caring attitude, along with their strong desire to ensure everyone has fun...we just know, we will always have a great time! Thank you Pine Vista & to all those that work there...for everything you do & for being the "best resort" ever! Our summers & now fall vacations, just wouldn't be the same without ya!

This will be our fourth year at Pine Vista and I have to say we love it! We've stayed at both Treetops and Homestead and, though not on the water, definitely prefer the spacious Homestead property. When I mentioned we're going back to my 11-year-old he said "best place ever!" The kids have made lifelong friends here and the Kids Club staff are amazing. I know it will be a little different this year, but I'm sure they'll do their best to make it a great experience regardless. If you're coming for great Wi-fi--stay home. This isn't a trip about computer time nor should it be. If you must connect, you're best to use the room off the main office. I read the last review which frankly makes me a little sad. First off, they tell everyone (or at least they told me) that pot smoking is not permitted on the property (I am not a person of colour). Secondly, my bi-racial family has always felt completely welcome here. Is there a ton of cultural diversity? No, but I think this has more to do with the reality of typical waspy "cottage culture" (it wasn't a tradition in my immigrant family that's for sure). The week we go always has 4-5 families who don't fit this "typical" mould and I'm pretty sure--though I don't begin to speak for other people--their return every year suggests that they feel included. Pine Vista isn't fancy, or pretentious. It's a lovely "homey" place with incredible people and an awesome lake. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed (but not party) atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.

Been going to Vista for 10 years now. My most recent visit has raised some concerns. Went and no facilities available - no discount provided. Was told to check in later than usual, assumed I would get to stay a little longer to compensate - I was wrong. Im not sure if it is recent events that are making me super sensitive to things, but noticed over my many years, no people of colour, nor in pictures either. And, I noticed I was the only person told directly, no marijuana smoking on property - I know this because I asked the people staying behind me if they had any issues. Being charged an extra amount because I forgot to take my garage to main trashcan - which is completely true, in my rush to leave, I must have left outside the cottage. Vista was recommended to me and I have gone out of my way to promote this place. I will no longer do so.

Thank you for giving us a 5 star rating for our rooms and cleanliness. We take great pride in keeping Pine Vista beautiful. For this reason, we are very transparent with all of our guests about our policies and provide written information in a pre-arrival email as well as a registration package. Within this written information is our non-smoking policy, our policy prohibiting marijuana and our policy regarding garbage removal. Every guest who books with us receives this information, and our staff re-iterate it at check-in. Our check-in and check-out times have remained the same for several years and I'm sorry you felt they were different. Our rates reflect our accommodations and property on spectacular Stoney Lake. We are thrilled to offer many activities and resources complimentary and are sorry you felt there were no facilities available. The only closures are mandated by the Ontario Government's Covid-19 guidelines and are not reflective of a lack of service on our part. We charged you an additional cleaning fee of $50 which was necessary for removal of marijuana odor in our cottage and garbage removal. These fees are clearly defined in our package that you received. We are devastated that you posted damaging comments about people of colour which have no place with anything associated with Pine Vista Resort. Our small family business has prided itself on welcoming guests of all race, culture, gender and abilities with our exceptional service since 1945. Every guest at Pine Vista is treated with respect and dignity. We are distraught that you have taken this stance as a result of us charging you fees for marijuana and garbage removal.
