The grounds are beautiful, there's plenty to do if you want to socialise with the other guests, and water spa's not bad. But none of it compensates for the unexpectedly poor condition of the room.
Two nights of their cheapest accomodation cost us $600 (B&B package -- no dinners). The small, motel-like room was in serious need of a face lift -- the paint was scratched, carpets stained, tiny flatscreen tv gets only two channels, tiny loud bar fridge sits on the floor in the bathroom and there is no air conditioning or ceiling fan. We were on the ground floor of a two-story building and for safety reasons, did not keep the sliding door open all night. With only one window and the noisy floor fan to cool us we were stifling hot both nights. These are just a few of the issues we had with the room. When we retreated to the lovely parabola with two Muskoka chairs down by the lake, we found the chairs to be broken and unusable. Nothing about this room was worth the $600 or vacation time we spent. Just plain disappointing.
