We use this as a getaway place which is only 1.5 hours north of Toronto. The service is great, the chef fantastic and a classy presentation. LOVED the menus, which changed every day. It's ideal for bringing children and grandchildren with lots of water sporting activities and trampoline on the lake. For couples I would recommend the cab is at...

The staff are wonderful, and the food was excellent. The time it took to order, and then to receive our dinners was very long, at times. We were in the dining room almost 2 hours many dinners, making us late for the evening entertainment. We waited almost 30 minutes one time for our dessert. Aside from that, we had a...

What a great place for a wedding or family gathering. However not so much for a couples retreat - it's too crowded and the accommodations don't lend well to "alone time". We made the most of it and had fun. The menu is very limited - especially for someone with food allergies or vegans. No pasta and very little attention...

Hi W2046QAclairep, Thank you for being our guests! I appreciate you taking the time to post your comments for the Trip Advisor community.
