I went to the Walker Lake Resort with my boyfriend who has been travelling the world for over 4 years. He's from England and he wanted to end his one year stay in Canada with something he'd never seen or done before. I found out about the cottages at Walker Lake from a buddy of mine who'd taken his fiance there a few months prior and raved about it. The owner or manager of the resort, Les, was really friendly and answered all of my questions with pleasure. When we booked, he even made reservatoins for us at his restaurant which was right there on the property. i so thrilled to say that I haven't had that much fun mixed with pleasure, relaxation, beauty, and romance in one weekend in all of my life. We stayed in "The Maple" cottage. It was roomy and cozy and had a real rustic feel to it. The kitchen was so elegant. It had a beautiful stove with cute wooden table and chairs. There was also an old fashioned gas stove/fireplace. My boyfriend and I sat in front of the fire playing cards all night long. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and we listened to music while relaxing in it after the most extraordinary French cuisine i have ever had. If you don't book a cottage, be sure to go to The Norsemen Restaurant. I couldn't have asked for anything better than sitting on a beautiful deck sipping wine while watching the lake as the sun went down. Not to mention feasting on the most succulent duck confit I have ever tasted. Over the weekend we cayaked, canoed, took the motorized dock into the middle of the lake and had a picnic, went on a hike, and roasted marshmallows over the fire pit in front of the lake. My boyfriend was eccstatic that he got to see a loon, and a deer. Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know how fabulous my experience was. I am arranging to go back in the winter for a little girls retreat.
