We held out annual executive retreat at the Moulin Wakefield in the lovely town of Wakefield. Every part of the stay (3-1/2 days) was delightful. Rooms can be in the original mill building or the new Eco River Lodge. Both are excellent. In the old mill, half the rooms look over the waterfall. In the new Eco River Lodge, the rooms are larger. Both are modern with every amenity.
The food in the restaurant was generally superb -- creative dishes and beautifully presented. Dinner in a Quebec Inn is the evening's entertainment so be prepared for a 2-3 hour multi-course event. The servers were knowledgeable and saw that anyone's special needs were accommodated.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well maintained. It is pleasant to stroll along the river, enjoy the hot tub, or simply sit in the shade and read a book. There are two spas and an outdoor pool.
It is about a ten minute walk into town. The highlight is the Black Sheep Inn -- one of the premier music venues in the Ottawa area. Or, you can walk up the hill through an alpine meadow to the McLaren family (the original owners of the Mill in the 19th Century) cemetery. As you walk into the cemetery, you will see a rock in the ground with the name "Pearson" and an arrow pointing ahead. Following the arrows, you end up at the grave of Canada's Nobel-winning Prime Minister, Lester B. Pearson, standing in the midst of one of the most beautiful views in central Canada.
