“Loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Lodge in the woods. My room was a good size, in a semi-detached cabin, with a renovated bathroom, comfortable queen bed, bar fridge, microwave, new air conditioner.

Great dining room with small bar area, and another bar (brand new and beautiful) on a new deck by the dock which overlooks a small beach, the marina and the bay and islands.

Staff were friendly and accommodating.

This was our 2nd time staying at Glenn Burney. Our first trip, we stayed in one of the main rooms off the lodge. We enjoyed that room, it had everything we needed and was cozy and clean. This time we had a cabin. I loved it! Beautiful, spacious, clean and it even had air conditioning!(cottage cheating I know, but it was hot!) The staff were friendly, the food was great and the entire place is just beautiful. We caught the sunset on their patio with our view of Georgian Bay. We'll be back next year! If not before then, if we make a fall trip up there :)

We stayed here for 3 nights and we enjoyed our stay. The lodge has worked hard to update the amenities and the rooms were nice and clean with a screened in balcony. The room had a fridge and microwave which was appreciated. The beds were comfortable. The fire pit in the evenings was a nice touch and the ability to walk down to the lake and enjoy the scenery was an added touch. The lodge is very secluded and the staff go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. A special call out to Zack. He delivered a glass of prosecco to us at our room when we checked in. This was so special and appreciated. We would recommend staying here.

What a great spot! Only a few minutes from downtown Parry Sound but but world's away!
My girlfriend and I booked a room here and found it very clean and comfortable and it had been recently renovated. There was also a private screened porch. The lodge itself is simply stunning with beautiful murals, carvings and even a totem pole in the main dining room. A beautiful collection of vintage guitars rounds out the room. For our dinner I had the scallops as an appetizer which were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. My girlfriend had the caesar salad with house smoked bacon which was also delicious. For the mains she opted for the very tasty fresh pickerel and I had rib-eye which was perfectly cocked and beautifully seasoned.
There's also a large patio on the water which has a very nice menu and is perfect for whiling away an afternoon.
Many thanks to the lovely staff and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had a very nice room but next time we may try one of the cabins. (If they're not sold out!)

My friend and I were recently recommended we stay at the Glenn Burney Lodge for a weekend getaway... Best decision made so far all summer. The location is fabulous, it's quiet and right on by the water and only 10 minute drive from town. The rooms are cozy and the staff are fantastic, they're super helpful and friendly!!
But, I'd have to say, my favorite part of it all was the food... It is to die for. We ate there every night. First of all the dining room is beautiful. we got to watch the sun set during dinner! the menu isn't overwhelmingly long making it a lot easier to read, the portion sizes are perfect, and the wine... Ahh the wine was very very nice.

Overall, we had an amazing expierence and can't wait to go back!!!!!

This was our second visit to Glenn-Burney Lodge in the last two years. We stayed in the main lodge building. Rooms are clean and well appointed with comfortable beds. The excellent restaurant looks out over a beautiful view of Georgian Bay. We also made use of the available canoes, which the lodge's offers for their guests use.

What a great place! Just spent a wonderful weekend here with my husband. Beautiful main lodge building has gorgeous interiour with stunning view of Georgian Bay. Loved the rustic decor and art, including a giant totem pole and large stone fireplace in the dining room. We had a room attached to main building- all very clean, with tv, small fridge, wi-fi and screened-in deck. Bedding was top-notch- which I'm usually fussy about but they had really comfortable beds with luxe linens. But best part had to be the meals. Everything from the french toast with fresh berries and fritatta with house-smoked bacon in the morning to the incredible fish platter at dinner was beyond all expectations. We've eaten at many well-known hi-end restaurants here and abroad and this place can definitely hold it's own. We have a cottage about an hour away and are already planning road trips next summer so we can come by for dinner. As for the staff- very friendly and any questions/requests we had were no problem. All in all, it was a great, relaxing weekend, and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had room attached to main lodge building which was convenient because it rained a lot while we we...
