Great area, cottages were nice and some are updated but no a/c for the hot, humid days and nights in our 3 bedroom. Ceiling fan was undersized for the living/ding/kitchen area. No other ceiling fans in our unit. Fridge broke but was replaced within the hour and no food loss, the great staff replaced everything form one fridge to the...

My lovely wife and I just returned from a three night stay at Elmhirst Lodge. When we were checking in we were greeted by a great customer service representative, her name was Wilma. She made us feel welcome right away. Great job! We then went to our cottage which was a "Superior Cottage". It was small but cozy with 2...

My girlfriend and I spent this past weekend at Elmhirst Resort. It was an awesome time. We booked the Couch Potato package so that means we had Saturday breakfast and dinner and Sunday brunch included. Saturday the food was ok but the Sunday brunch was like no other! There was seafood, roast pork, prime rib, all your regular breakfast food...

I purchased a 3 night package for my husband's birthday so he could fish. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was rainy, cold and windy so the lake was choppy and we didn't rent a boat. The dock was visited by several Canada geese and it was very unpleasant fishing off the dock because of the poop everywhere which...

Got married here this past weekend. Steve, Wilma, Karen, and David were all such a pleasure to deal with and put up with my countless emails and requests. Steve (the owner) was super accommodating throughout the whole process and managed to save my rained-out wedding day with quickly moving everything from the outside area to inside, giving us great indoor...

Because members of our group live between Montreal and Stratford we find this is a central meeting place for the 27 members who can attend each year. The facilities are such that couples can share the cost of two and three bedroom units and they are well appointed if you want to cook for yourself or you can dine at...

What a disappointment . Pop and beer was flat. Never said sorry except "that's the way it is". Burgers were very dry. Never did get the water we asked for at the start of the meal. And the salad was delivered after the meal was completed. Never to return or recommend

What an awesome place. So many activities for our entire family! The spa was incredible, Martina was outstanding. The cottages were great, more than enough room for the entire family. The kids loved the tubing, horse back riding and both the indoor and outdoor pools.

My family and I came to stay at this resort for the first time for my cousins wedding. The cottage we were in had three bedrooms plus a pull out couch in the living room. My partner and I slept on the pull out which was fairly comfortable. However there was SO many houseflies in the cabin when we arrived....

Two of my kids, their four kids, and I just spent two nights at Elmhirst. We had a wonderful, five-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage with a kitchen and large eating area. We were able to barbecue our dinners and cook our other meals. A great place for kids. There are a number of canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards (no extra fees for...
