My girlfriend and I went lastnight for a little getaway and stayed in cabin #9 . We absolutely loved the water view of this cabin out all of the front facing windows and the large deck!!!. We saw swans, muskrats, and a bald eagle! The layout inside was great as well' very spacious and we LOVED the ambience/warmth of the electric fireplace which we needed because it was absolutely freezing outside. One of the only downsides was that the wifi did not work and theres no tv unless you have a DVD player. We cant wait to go back!

I came to Sunnylea Resort for the first time this month to spend some time with friends and family. I thought the cabins were very rustic and clean, and the property was perfect as it was located right on the water, had a really cool bon fire pit and the owners are even making a skating rink right on the lake ! I plan to come back and skate in January. The whole property is lit up at night with cool lights, and with the snow it made it a really cozy get away.

I really enjoyed the fire place in the cabin, it was cozy and cute. We watched movies from the resort and went on winter walks during the day. I highly recommend this place for a little out of city getaway and can't wait to come back when all the winter attractions are in full swing!

My boyfriend and I just started visiting Sunny Lea for the first time a couple months ago. We loved it so much that we have been four times now, in the last 2 months?. We brought my sister along for a getaway in the two bedroom cabin #2 and she loved it as well. We love the owners and how friendly they are , we love the water views and we enjoyed the Timhortons two minute drive around the corner! . The wifi didnt really work in some of cabins we stayed in so just be prepared for that and no TV in the one bedroom cabin #9 so you will need a DVD player or something if you wanna watch something inside. Other than that we have thoroughly enjoyed our new home-away-from-home and we look forward to going back🙂!!!!

We just stayed at Sunnylea resort for this past weekend. We were told that we were not allowed in the pool due to covid. Yet every other guest was in the pool on this scary hot weekend. Drinks are allowed to wander and be loud until 3am. Our cottage had no hot water for showers or dishes… when I asked for help I got told that showers could be had in the public washroom behind our cottage. Which was locked and had another group of 15 staying in the 2 bedroom cottage attached. So after paying over $600 for 2 nights, we left early because the owners didn’t care to fix anything. To also point out, the owners sister was allowed to wander stoned and drunk all weekend as well. And the ants in the cottages were really bad too.
Also be advised that you cannot swim at the beach here or off the dock. It is very reedy and has snapping turtles. Would never go back here.

Saw the owner leave a very rude message in response to my mother who wrote a detailed review.

A) At no point did anyone come to see the cabin during the issue. So very interesting that you should say there was no evidence. You never bothered to check. You never showed up to the cabin so we could show you what was happening.

B) at no point did anyone harass staff. Stop trying to create problems to cover your shortcomings. The only time we had contact with the staff was when I had to call 3 times for someone to pick up the phone because of the bugs in our cabin.

C) if you don’t like people leaving reviews, don’t have rooms with bugs. The principle is not that we got our room refunded, that was the least you could’ve done. It’s the fact that you’re angry that people might find out that there were bed bugs in Cabin #4

D) another point of “there’s no evidence” if you check the Google Review I left for you, there are pictures and videos of the bed bugs in the room. Same on the Facebook review. It’s very interesting that the only review that you responded that these were fake claims is the one that doesn’t have the pictures and videos. Very interesting indeed.

I find it absolutely ridiculous that the owner of this resort is so incompetent that they’ve tried to start a smear campaign against people who leave a bad review. If you don’t want bad reviews, don’t have a bad place to stay. It’s pretty simple.

You think we’re making this up? Do you really think we wanted to drive back to the city in the middle of the night with all of our stuff for clout? Get over yourself.

very disappointed with customer service. I had tried to book a Spa Special which required 2 nights at $209 per night as per their website. . There is no such price available as customer service indicates the price changes daily dependent on the demand for accommodation. Very unethical and misleading

Had a wonderful time at Sunnylea resort. Our plan was to have a quiet New Years Eve , go for an evening walk and hang out by the bonfire. To our surprise, one of the guests put on an amazing fire works display! The bonfire area is beautifully lit with lights and it looks like the skating rink will be ready to use any day now! Will be back with my skates.

Had a lovely weekend at Sunnylea Resort. Cabins were rustic but cozy and the fireplace was the perfect amenity to warm your toes after a day of skiing. Staff were friendly and polite. Would visit again due to the pleasant atmosphere and close proximity to ski hills!

We just recently rented a cabin at Sunnylea resort to visit muskoka area in the fall. I was told that the new owners are planning on renovating the property soon which is good as the cabins are a little older but we still enjoyed the rustic feel. The owners provided me with a lot of cool recommendations for things to do in the area and some neat places to see the fall colours. It was a shame that the water locks were closed for the season, but we found a lot to do around the resort instead. My family enjoyed having bon fires in the evenings and the free use of the canoes and kayak were an added bonus. All in all our family had a nice relaxing time.

Loved everything about my trip to Sunnylea!

So cozy in the cottage, there’s everything you need for a comfy stay and the office is only a few feet away for anything else you may need. We also stayed out till 11pm using the ice rink they made on the lake - very cool to be able to skate with a pretty view like Little Lake.

Snowmobile trails start literally across the road and we had a blast being able to hop on our sleds at the cottage and get right onto the trails. We were able to check out a ski hill too which was barely a 20 mins drive away from the resort and also went up to Bala the next day for their winter ice skating trail and cranberry wine tasting.

Sunnylea is a gem and is located in one of the best spots to explore so much of Muskoka. We will definitely be back up to check out Arrowhead Provincial Park and can’t wait to book with Sunnylea again.
