Baker Creek Mountain Resort. What a hidden treasure it was.
In the middle of the woods this lovely resort has a number of cabins but there are rooms in the lodge as well. All of it well kept and looked after.
At the entrance of the complex there are some wooden red top buildings which are the reception, the bistro (a restaurant and a bar) and the lodges.
There is an ice skating rink too and of course the parking because you can’t park by the cabins but you can get there to unload your car.
The staff (that we wittnessed are mainly foreign but speak very good English) was good, quick and friendly. Not once we had to wait for the receptionist to appear from somewhere.
Snow shoes, ice skates, cross country ski’s and a guitar were available from the reception. From the premises you could follow some trails on snow shoes. Great fun!
The gym is unexpectedly large. Sauna and steamroom are very pleasant.
The cabin (No. 6) was rustic and well equipped, cosy and comfortable and with enough logs to keep the fire going. More wood could be bought.
Room 31 had a jacuzzi, shower, no bath. There was a small kitchenette with microwave and enough plates, cutlery etc. for 2 people. If you didn’t want to go out for dinner this would give you enough possibilities to prepare/heat up something in the room but I would suggest to at least eat once in the restaurant or the bar, we found it fantastic!.
