5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2008

Have just returned from a fantastic stay at this beautiful inn.
It is situated in a wonderful location on the Niagara Escarpment. The walking and outdoor activities in the area are superb.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and you are made to feel very welcome. There were many extra special touches like coffee and cookies always available for guests, fridges in every room, an abundance of soft fresh towels by the hot tub and gym and by request they will even set you up to barbecue your own food in an evening, outside to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, with a different array of delights each morning. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Whether you're after a quiet, romantic retreat or a family holiday, this place has it all.
Highly recommend.

What a lovely and peaceful place! The Pretty River Inn is a great place for people looking for a relaxing country setting and great hospitality. I felt like a little kid again exploring the property, the trails and all the very social animal residents. We stayed in one of the suites which was very comfortable and had a lovely wood burning fireplace. You can enjoy your privacy if you like or chat with the great staff and hosts. As it was also so close to Collingwood we also had many options to go and explore different sites and restaurants - but I would have been just as content to stay at the inn. Looking forward to our next visist!

My parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary at a nearby farm and our extended family took over the three suites at the Pretty River Inn. The suites are fantastic with plenty of room and a separate common area. The kids enjoyed the salt water pool and the large selection of animals. Breakfast was good with some of the best (richest) French toast I have ever had. We had a family brunch that was very well received. The Pretty River Valley is a provincial treasure nestled in the Niagara escarpment. The Inn has several hiking trails and the valley is ringed by the Bruce Trail. There are also some fantastic restaurants nearby including Chez Michel in Creemore. My wife and I will definitely be going back (without the kids this time).

Our Christmas gift from our daughter was a gift certificate for a nights stay at Pretty River Valley Inn. As our anniversary is in August and happened to be the same weekend as the Wasaga Beach Corvette Cruise (we own a '73 Vette) we decided to extend our one night to a two night weekend get away.
We had a bit of concern when driving to the Inn, we took a 7.3 km gravel road to the Inn, not cohesive for a classic car. But upon our arrival all anxiety and intrepidation were forgotten. We were greeted with delicious homemade cookies and lemonade, a very warm welcome from the owners Paul and Linda. Paul reassured us there is a better and more scenic paved road to and from the Inn, which we traveled several times and never tired of the drive, it's lovely.
We had never stayed at an Inn or B&B prior to this so had no preconceived expectations, we certainly were not disappointed! The room was cosy with a fireplace, jucuzzi tub and chilled champagne, everything for the makings of a romantic get away. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with fresh fruit, homemade bread and blueberry scones, not to mention eggs benedict with smoked salmon.
Unfortunately we didn't bring our hiking boots so we didn't take advantage of the hiking opportunities on the property or the Bruce Trail but we did enjoy an afternoon lounging by the salt water pool with wine and cheese (we provided).
We had a wonderful weekend and we would definately return. Paul and Linda are very caring, attentive, soft spoken hosts.

We have just spent a wonderful weekend in a loft at Pretty River Valley Country Inn. From the warm friendly welcome on our arrival, the service throughout our stay was first class.
The suite was tastefully furnished and was equipped with a whirlpool which was very welcome after a day's hiking on the nearby beautiful trails. The Tempur-pedic bed insured a good night's sleep and then a good breakfast set us up for the following day.
The farm setting of the Inn complete with reindeer, horses and various rare fowl is delightful. It is situated in a very attractive river valley close to Georgian Bay, the Bruce Trail, the waterfalls of Grey County and Collingwood. The Inn is an ideal centre for exploring the many attractions in the area.
We hope to return soon to this quiet and peaceful resort and would highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed at Pretty River Inn for our 18th wedding anniversary in August. This place is fantastic. We actually stayed here for a weekend in February also but the weather (snow/freezing rain!) kept us mostly inside. Not a bad thing though...hot tub, jacuzzi, king size bed, wood fireplace. It was easy to justify not leaving the room. A summer stay offers all the beautiful scenerey of the escarpment, the Blue Mountain ski hills, and Georgian Bay. The Inn is very charming, warm and cozy, with just a bit of the old rustic flavor. Staff is very friendly and take great care to see that guests are comfortable. I would highly recommend the Inn to anyone who wants a nice quiet weekend away. My wife and I already planning to go back again next summer.
Thanks again Paul and Linda for making both our visits enjoyable and memorable.
