“Great Escape”
Reviewed 16 October 2020 for a stay in October 2020

Hidden Retreat is perfectly located just outside of Huntsville and close to other lovely little towns like Dwight and Dorset and the well-known and beautiful Algonquin Park. The condo was comfortably furnished and has two balconies (and upper off the master and lower off the main living space) with views overlooking the lake (a great spot to read and relax). It was a nice "surprise" to find that towels and bedding were provided along with some of the "basics" (paper towel, dish soap, etc.). The master suite was large/spacious and offered and en-suite plus lots of storage (and a washer and dryer)! The second bedroom on the first floor is "cozy" and nicely appointed however there is no storage whatsoever (no closet or dresser). This wasn't an issue for us (just two of us), but it might be a "challenge" if the second bedroom was being used. The owner gets FIVE stars for communications (very responsive to messages and/or questions -- we had two during our stay, both concerning the TV/cable). While there are four VERY tight visitor parking spaces fairly near the unit, the only other "guest" parking is quite a hike up a very steep hill. We were given the option of using the lower level garage parking, but it is shared space and while we were there, the person parking next to us had angled their vehicle in such a way that we chose not to try and wedge ourselves into the garage. Also, you have to walk up a long flight of stairs (outside) to get from the garage level back up to the stairway leading up to the condo. The condo has great views because of it's location, but because of it's location, there are a lot of stairs! I had only three "disappointments"; the first was that it was clear upon arrival that the surfaces that one would expect to be "well cleaned" (kitchen counters, dining table and coffee table in the living room) were not clean. During these CoVid times, that should be the #1 most important thing along with my second "concern" which was that most of the cutlery looked as though it had (perhaps accidentally) been put away dirty as there were knives and forks with food debris stuck on them. My only other issue was the oven which, when I tried to use it just once, began smoking because (apparently) there was a large spill or accumulation of spills from other uses that had not been cleaned. I mentioned the cutlery and the oven to the owner as a courtesy (how can anyone know what's wrong if you don't tell them?), but never got a response to that particular message. Overall, it was a great rental and my only recommendation (having rented properties of my own), is to make sure the cleaning service/person is doing a more thorough job.

“Hidden Valley Chalet great location for family fun”
Reviewed 25 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

I was pleased to find this type of accommodation up in Huntsville. Good and clear instructions were sent to me (feel bad for printing too much...). We found all we need in the condo with the exception of the coffee grinder ( made a trip to Canadian Tire in Huntsville to buy one and have a stop to the famous Kawartha ice cream shop). I was nicely surprised to have the access to the resort's pool and sauna (within walking distance). The resort offers snow shoes to rent. The place has an indoor garage and also extra parking outside. The beds are comfy and clean. I found one annoying thing: the light switch in the bathrooms turn on the loud fan as well, waking up all the people in the night. Definitely, we will return if it's available.
