I booked a pet friendly cottage to treat my parents for their anniversary. The cottages are beautifully appointed and decorated and have a cozy living area, full kitchen and 2 bedrooms (two bathrooms too). I didn't use the hot tub on the deck outside the master bedroom but it is a nice touch. All cottages are a short walk to the main lodge, and my parents, who are getting on in years, didn't have any problems walking throughout the resort or getting to the beach.
We ate breakfast in the great room. The view is SPECTACULAR. The fresh baked goods are a nice treat but I'd recommend considering a nice plate of meats and cheeses to accompany what is otherwise a carbo-load of a breakfast. I appreciate that you can order an eggs n' such meal at extra cost but I prefer the European middle-ground style breakfasts of pastry with protein.
The staff were very friendly and courteous. My parents felt pampered. The bottle of complimentary wine to celebrate their anniversary was also a nice touch. A special thanks to the swat-team-like efficiency of the room service staff. In the cottages, at least, a team of 5 or 6 cleaning staff showed up on a golf cart and transformed the cottage into clean state in mere moments - but this swat team was super friendly!
The location is perfect- a better beach than the Wikininnish and so private. Imagine sharing one of the largest beaches in Canada with less than a dozen people at any given time. I love coming to Long Beach and have now found the place I simply must return to on my next trip!
