BUYER BEWARE! This facility is not entirely accurate to what is advertised on their website. The website shows the exact same interior pictures for all cottages, which is inaccurate. Cottage 14 interior was not the size suggested by the pictures. Other surprises with this cottage were, 2 of 3 interior doors would not close completely as they were not hung properly, including the bathroom! One bedroom door had no knob. The well water has a strong smell of sulphur. The first night we were visited by two mice. We found holes in the baseboards which we plugged. When booking through the website, they claimed to take a 25% deposit. When I booked, they took 100% of the cost.
They charge a 5% “resort fee” and do offer kayaks and accessories. Upon departure the manager took note of the concerns and said they would be addressed.
The positive was the restaurant, where the menu was excellent and the staff were friendly.

Beautiful island resort on the french river. Stayed for 3 night and was not disappointed. Staff were extremely friendly and professional and the cabins were just rustic enough with new appliances, comfy beds and a screened in porch to keep away the bugs and night. Will definitely be returning. It is also pet friendly resort. I highly recommend.

We booked a 3 bedroom cottage to attend a family member’s birthday celebration. Very pleasantly surprised with the newly renovated cottage. Everything needed for a pleasant stay. Restaurant prepared a buffet dinner to accommodate our large group. Great pizzas were prepared for a late evening snack. Restaurant open early for a hearty breakfast before returning home. I would definitely recommend this destination

This was the first time staying here, to my surprise based on their website after being charged a $150.00 a night..
Upon arrival, the representive was not welcoming. her first question was I need your visa, to charge the room, unlike most places you pay when you leave. she gave me a key to room 22 and pointed to the location of where it was.
When I entered the newly renovated rooms, well see photos.

We stayed overnight in the hotel. Part of our summer “explore NE Ontario” plan. Wasn’t sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised! You can tell the owners have put much effort into all renovations. Our room was modern/rustic. Comfortable beds, quiet room, great view of the water. We enjoyed sitting on the new dock, eating our yummy meals in the restaurant, and having drinks on the patio. Surprised at our bill…expected to pay much more. Staff lovely, friendly and can tell they help each other out. The only thing I would suggest for improvement, is to switch the air conditioner. We didn’t find it worked well. Instead we opened the window and used the fans provided. Tip: Book directly with hotel for a better rate.

Room Tip: I think the top floor rooms in the hotel will have a better view of the water.

We found clean refurbished rooms with plenty of parking for our sled trailer. Route 64 restaurant has friendly staff, food was good, beer was plentifully. We had the daily specials at dinner, and the breakfast menu has a wide variety.....Howie

I've had two amazing experiences booking waterfront cottage rentals with Riverdale Resort! They have an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable team who answered all our questions and helped us with picking the perfect cottage for our family. Would highly recommend this rental.

Check in was easy. The cabin was clean with a great shower (and comfortable beds!). The fish and chips for supper was excellent, and The French River Band (rock music) did some great covers! Great staff at the restaurant/bar.
I would stay there again.

Amazing place to stay. Food quality was also good. The place is very peaceful and serene, with lovely cozy rooms and views. An instant recommend to anyone planning a trip to Dharamshala! Owner is very cooperative and helpful.

We have been to Route 64 a couple of times now and the staff are so friendly and attentive. Beer is ice cold!
Went on burger night. Oh my they are huge !! The hot chicken could of been a bit hotter for my liking and house burger was very good. Fries are cooked to perfection.
Looking forward to many more visits.
