The location - on the shore of a quiet bay off Lake Joseph - is very attractive. The facilities for enjoying the water are great. The nearby golf course and associated clubhouse are eye catching. The food and views from the golf course restaurant were great. The wider grounds were extensive and by Armitshaw Lake very attractive.

But …..

The accommodation is dated, cramped and in need of serious renovation. We stayed in a 2 bedroom premium suite with a view over the lake. The ‘deck’ was probably no more than 30 sq ft, had (only 4) uncomfortable wrought iron chairs, and the view of the lake came only after overlooking the buildings in front.

To access our suite we had to walk up 2 flights of steep stairs. The dishwasher wouldn’t open, the kettle was the cheapest imaginable, and the hard furnishings were well passed their sell by date.

The dog in the next apartment continually barked, the revellers below us were noisy, the kids in the next suite played with a bouncing ball and the noise carried through thin walls.

Summary - not good value unless you come with lots of kids who make full time use of the water facilities. The accommodation needs some serious upgrading.

Stayed June 25-28th, The room was old an in desperate need of someTLC. The deck was so dirty we could not even sit on our deck. The table and chairs may have never been cleaned. Electrical problem in our bathroom. Other than the beautiful lake, it looks like the resort is being run down. Which is unfortunate due to the cost per night. ($400+/Night). Food was average.

Room tip: Bring cleaning supplies. Premium Lake view room does have a view of the lake.

We stayed over the May long weekend and just wanted to relax and sit by the water. We paid over $200 a night for the room and it was not like the pictures advertised at all. The room is “tired” to say the least and smells of dog. Everything here at this resort seems like it’s desperate need of a good cleaning. We ordered dinner from the lakeside restaurant and that was very good and the staff was very friendly. Check-in was advertised as “contactless” so we downloaded the app and did that. Upon check-in I still had to go in and sign 3 more papers and be exposed to a family that chose not to social distance. They still have quite a bit of work to do here before we will spend our travel dollars at this location again.

We are very sorry for your disappointment. All of our pictures were taken in the past couple of years.

You should not have been asked to sign anything else, other than showing your ID and be given your keys.

Came for a night in the fall, dinner was lackluster, resort is tired ...
Party central and staff were ineffectual. Air handling conveniently sucked all the marijuana into our room for our kids to breathe.
Spend your money elsewhere! I would do -3 stars if possible.

So hubby and I came to the resort to get away during COVID. We were only able to get a queen room with a tiny Kitchenette. They advertised contactless check in which after you downloaded the app it then sent you to the reception to show them your ID and get your key! Sigh! I have to say after taking to the front desk I was left feeling a little annoyed and not welcomed. We had two lovely meals at the patio and our server was awesome! And super friendly! What was disheartening was that even though I called 4 weeks prior to me stay I could not get a t time. I have posted pictures of our room, the room is not doubt outdated and for 300 plus a night not worth it.

We are proud of the cottage country feel in our rooms and the generous size on Lake Joseph. They definitely do not have a downtown Toronto feel. There is no doubt that access to golf was challenging with the demand this year and the amount of member play at our on-site private golf course.
