Stayed at Marsh Ridge for a nice two night getaway August 5-6, 2013. My husband went to golf and have some drinks and relax and that is exactly what we did. The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived late for our tee time and were more than accommodating to get us out. The golf course was in great shape,...

My husband and I stayed at the resort for two days recently. The resort is stuck in the 1970's and REALLY needs to be updated. Our room was large, but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. The bathroom that I used after nine holes was the worst bathroom that I've ever been in (smelled, no...

You see that beautiful pool? It's an empty cement hole with no water. You see that beautiful room? It's dated and the 'new' mattresses should be returned. You see that big flat screen TV? You can't because it's way too small You see that toilet? you can from the bed, because a wooden partition separates the two. You see that...

We stayed 2 nights at MR on Feb. 15-16, 2013 for snowmobiling. This is a resort located on a golf course and they cater to golfers in the summer and skiers and snowmobilers in the winter. We found our rooms to be clean and tidy and had everything we wanted. Front desk staff was polite and very helpful and we...

Went snowmobiling - They advertise mid week discounts, check in on a Wednesday asked about discount, LARRY said that is on Tuesday's (I thought it would be Wednesday, shame on me!). The trail map they gave us had there ad on it saying "mid week discount". They only had the hot tub open for short hours during the day time....

We stayed in the Hart cottage in mid january. We were there for a weekend of snowmobiling and it was a great location. Food is pretty decent, staff is very friendly and helpful. Cottage was really nice and really made you feel like you were up north. Only thing was it wasn't as clean as we would have expected. The...

Stayed overnight and played two rounds. Purchased the group golfer package. This included 2 rounds, overnight stay, breakfast, lunch, dinner and one drink ticket. Kristine at the front desk was pleasant during booking and check in. Only choice for breakfast was the buffet. Just an OK breakfast. The only item available for lunch was hot dog and chips. We did...

We have visited Marsh Ridge on several occasions both in early summer and in early fall. We have enjoyed the lovely grounds that are kept immaculate and pleasing to the eye. The golf course is challenging enough for the weathered golfer and forgiving enough for the novice, surround by mature hardwoods that are majestic and colourful in the fall. Some...

We've stayed here before and enjoyed it, would not have gone back if we didn't. But while we liked the condo it needs some work...they advertise TVs in every room...there used to be as evidenced by the disconnected cables. The first floor bedroom absolutely needs a ceiling fan, there is one double window which brought in zero fresh air. And...

Our room was dated but nice enough. Very small TV, and our jacuzzi tub wouldn't hold water, which defeats the point of a jacuzzi tub. Front desk didn't seem to care. No towels at the pool, I had to get some at the restaurant as the front desk was closed. Hot tub cover was a chunk of foam board insulation....
