A few of my friends and I went to this hotel for an overnight get away from the hectic Christmas schedule. Our room was perfect. It was clean and well appointed. Had all the amenities and you could see Lake Ontario from our big bright window. The staff are friendly and it is definitely a family run operation not a...

In November, my husband and I were visiting family in Fenelon Falls and making a trip to Port Hope the next day. I checked out hotels in the area and this one sounded interesting, being right on the lake. We like small, unique, non-chain hotels when possible. They also accepted our tiny dog and it was very reasonably-priced. Our room...

The Breakers is a charming older property located on the shore of Lake Ontario in the little City of Cobourg, Ontario. The location is very quiet, being somewhat removed from both the 401 and the main City streets. However, it an easy walk to the core of downtown Cobourg, which has many charming stores and restaurants, as well as some...

This was our second time at the Breakers for a family reunion and for some family members their 4th or 5th. While the resort is looking a little tired and worn around the edges, it is still a welcoming place in a great setting, particularly for those of "a certain age" ( 50 plus) The service was very good even...

We stayed here one night to break a journey. As two couples, we had two large and comfortable top floor rooms, both with small balconies. Every room has a kitchenette and there are lots of BBQs and comfortable lawn chairs to use. The lake and a sandy beach are literally a few feet away. There are good restaurants within walking...

I just recently spent two nights at the charming Breakers on the Lake Inn in quaint Cobourg. It has many old fashioned qualities such as beautiful rooms, great service and a waterfront view with a private beach, but also has modern rooms with essentials for today, such as wi-fi and is dog friendly (love it!). I spoke to guests who...

I recently stayed at the Breakers on the Lake and had a wonderful time with my family and my dogs. I was welcomed by the front desk staff as if I was one of the family and they could not do enough for me. Extra amenities were provided for my dog which was much appreciated with them romping on the...

My sister and I were here on August 21, 2013. The place is falling apart with junk littered all over. In fact, it looked like a flop house for new arrivals to Canada. Roof is composting into itself, and paint is flaking off the wall. The "private beach" is quite the misnomer as it is no more 500 square feet...

This place exceeded all my expectations, The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff outstanding. The grounds are charming so you think that you are in a private cottage. It does not have a motel feel about it at all. I had a ground floor room and the people above me walked like elephants,..no matter. We were cycling and...

Breakers is a paradise you will want to rebook a year ahead. This place is right on Lake Ontario adjacent to the Cobourg Beach. They have a private beach area as well and great lawn to chillax on. The staff is top notch. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They even have a self contained cottage with a kitchen if...
