We recently returned from another fabulous week a Rockwood Resort. Our family of five has been staying at Rockwood for the past twelve years. The location is absolutely gorgeous - a sheltered bay within a bay, on Georgian Bay with small (granite) islands peeking out of the water at various points. The views just cannot be surpassed! Every cottage has a fabulous vantage point (we have stayed in 6 different cottages on the property). There is a spacious sandy beach, docks to walk out to, turtles to seek out, a great foot bridge to walk across, plus a very spacious back beach on the other end of their property. We have enjoyed many campfires on the beach, shared with other renters. The cottages are spotless, and also, the grounds and gardens are beautifully and meticulously maintained. In the fall, the colours are spectacular and it is a photographer’s dream location. The cottages are very comfortable and cosy, with a rustic charm. We usually rent No. 2 on the beach, which has a wood-burning fireplace, which keeps us very cosy for our annual Thanksgiving weekends. Leslie, Reima and their daughter Ariel are always extremely helpful and pleasant to talk to. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Rockwood Resort. We invite you and your family to immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of the Georgian Bay Area. Our resort is situated on a five acre parcel of woodland surrounded by miles of crown land, making Rockwood a perfect place for a Georgian Bay, four-season recharge. We offer 1, 2 and 3 bedroom fully equipped housekeeping cottages, each with full kitchen, 3 or 4 piece bath, deck, propane or charcoal BBQ, and a few with a sunroom or screened in porch. Whether your escape is solo or with the entire family, Rockwood has something for everyone. Find refuge on one of our two sandy beaches (with a children's activity centre on the main beach), enjoy a meal outdoors on our picnic tables, hike through natural woodlands, bike along marked trails, enjoy a nightly bonfire on the beach, grab a fishing rod or laze around in sun or shade with a good book. We also rent boats, motors and canoes on site. Paddleboats, though a tad underpowered for an island excursion, are available for your enjoyment. ... more less
