“Not a bad place...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

The cottages are new, with flat screens and leather couches, the "muskoka room" (screened in porch) was amazing, sitting out there early in the morning or late at night was always relaxing. The grounds are pretty rough and tumble, the indoor pool was a nice touch for sure. The WIFI worked well too!

We would return.

We unfortunately picked one of the coldest weeks this year for a winter holiday. Fortunately we picked a resort than gave us a refuge from the cold. We enjoyed our fireplace, cosy beds, and well equipped kitchen. the view of the lake was stunning. Staff kept the road, rink and tubing hill in great condition despite the cold and snow. Cross country ski conditions were perfect in nearby Algonquin Park.

We had a wonderful week In the resort. The accommodations were excellent, the staff was very friendly and helpful and even in the off season the resort had lots of activities to do. I especially was grateful for the many extra's such as coffee filters, paper towels, dish washing soap and even Kleenex etc. You seldom find all those items supplied with the rental and often have to run out again to buy these. My husband has mobility problems, but the resort and cottage posed no difficulty for him at all.

My husband and I had a wonderful time enjoying the peak foliage season in Lake of Bays region. Our two bedroom cottage had all the amenities - up-to-date kitchen appliances and great Muskoka room. Two LCD tvs - one in master bedroom and one in the living room. Most of all, we loved kayaking (free for guests), playing tennis, and swimming in the indoor pool. Rustic views from our cottage - and lots of deer sightings outside our windows. A great place to visit - especially in the spring, summer, or fall.

Room Tip: Quiet, excellent mattresses, and great enclosed Muskoka room.

We enjoyed a week at bwa thus past August with our family (two under the age of 8) as well as two other families. All three families stayed in different styled cottages but when it came down to the overall experience, the actual accommodation played a small roll. The grounds, beach, dock, games room, pool, playground and hiking trail were ideal to distract the little ones so the adults could also relax. We look forward to returning.

If the weather is cool and damp, the old cottage is not a good place to be. The people are really nice and helpful as they can be and the area is spectacular. Lots to do when the weather is good. We were there for outdoor activities but the weather was not cooperating.

Room Tip: Insist on one of the newly built cottages.
