This week I stayed two nights at The Crestwood Inn, Port Carling, Muskoka, ON and would do so again, as my needs are simple. On booking by phone, I requested the least expensive room. It turned out to be the end double-room of the Belmont Terrace section, the only room in that wing with a true view. The small suite itself was absolutely spotless and fresh. The fridge chilled quicky, the tv system worked perfectly, the free wifi likewise, and all the linen supplied was bright-white clean and fluffy. There was one spare pillow (thus 5 good ones in all) and one blanket -- more available on request.
My neighbours, many of them staying to work construction at Port Carling's bridge area, were quiet, early to bed and early to rise. Complimentary breakfast was standard cereal, muffins, croissants and good coffee or tea, with prepackaged condiments. Here comes my only complaint: the fresh fruit on offer was pitiful -- one wrinkled apple and two overripe bananas. No excuse, even toward the end of the breakfast 4-hr timespan because there is a Foodland -- with a great produce section -- just one minute up the road.
The place was perfect for my requirements: unpretentious, immaculate and pleasant. The low-key and courteous owner/manager is unintrusive yet right there whenever needed. I recommend this spot to anyone else whose values and budget match my own: it fits the bill very nicely. In a way, I wish I could take the Crestwood Inn with me on my travels around North America!
