This was a very disappointing stays. The location and grounds are beautiful but the rooms and service not at all. The room was not ready until 6pm. In the “new” building but old and uncomfortable furniture (bed was horribly uncomfortable). The room was not clean - there were hair and sand in the sink and beer cans under the bed. The staff was unhelpful - when asking how to get to the lodge from main reception, I was told rudely to check the map and the staff just left. No customer service at all - for example when asking if we could call a taxi, the rude person at the desk just said “call the taxi company”. This is not the quality or service one can expect when paying over $1000 for two nights. Finally, COVID restrictions are not maintained with guests - people are not wearing masks indoors and not distancing from those no in their households and the staff does not say anything. When pointed out to one of them they said it’s not their job. On top of everything this felt very unsafe and as if guest experience is not a priority at all.

We stayed two nights at the Tennis View building, which seems to be partly through a renovation. The room was spacious and clean, but very in need of updating. We were disappointed the balcony was only had an obstructed view of the grounds, but a full exposed view of the parking lot with all the noise and lights. Why design it that way? When I asked about this at the front desk I got shrugs from the teenage staff and "that's the room you booked and that's what you got". The grounds are nice, although in need of some upkeep and maintenance. The waterfront and pools in mid summer are very crowded. The Maple Pub was nice, but definitely avoid the Eclipse. We had one of the worst meals we've ever had with their "Endless Grill". The meat is poor quality and cooked badly. Go instead to the excellent 3 Guys and Stove 5 minutes away. In a nutshell, we expected a lot more for $500 a night. Its a 2 or 3 star resort charging 5 star prices and probably in need of better management.

Do not go. Outdated, unkempt, terrible food at Eclipse for dinner, breakfast was good. Overflowing waste baskets, no TV working first night, neither room keys as well. Took a long time to reach front desk for help in first night, second night was better. Beautiful surroundings though and friendly staff. It comes off as very tired without anyone at the helm. Won't return or recommend it and for $500 a night! A motel would be its equivalent.

I recently had lunch with a friend on the patio at the Maple Pub. We had fantastic service from a server named Bronwyn. She was energetic, polite and efficient. She also made some excellent meal recommendations for us.

This place is clearly 125 years old, despite paying over $700 for two nights we came to a room with these highlights: - a puddle on hallway - the source being a closet which was locked - the couch cushions have a huge hole and the stuffing is coming out - the walls have mud on them - the building stinks (literally) - a wet carpet by the back door - water damaged and water logged - a large portion of the carpet in the living room is always wet and damp - stained furniture - a view of the parking lot - crumbs all over the floor in the living room and on the couch. Clearly not vacuumed or cleaned before we arrived - a fireplace that doesn’t work - a random hole in the wall For a place that’s so expensive, it could afford to at least maintain its buildings. I have never stayed in such an outdated dirty place. Save your money and go to the best western. I also called the front desk to report the leaks and water damage and they sent someone to mop the floor up and that’s it. No new room. No one answers when you call. No help no customer service. We are unfortunately stuck here for the weekend. Please see my photos, there’s no excuse for this, and the resort refuses to address it or acknowledge it. Don’t stay here it’s a total tourist trap. The rooms are ancient and dirty. So disappointed 😔
