The one thing that is for sure, the people and service here is great. We didn't meet a single person that wasn't nice
This place does lack a few things I would expect from a resort:
newspaper at my door
pool with a few
place with lounge chairs (there is no place on the water to sit)
When i go to a 'resort', I typically want one spot where I can go and spend the entire day and relax if I want...and ideally go for a swim. There is a pool, but without scenery, what is the point in going here? Muskoka is all about being on the lake.
Room are spacious, but the bathrooms are very cramped, and seem dated.
The hallways and rooms also have a musty type smell
It is a nice spot, but relative to most luxury resort spots we have visited, it doesn't compare. If you can get a deal, go. But I wouldn't spend top dollar.
