From the time I called to make our reservation with David I got a great feeling about Elmhirst's Resort. He was very helpful and obviously truly loves his job. I did mention to David that my son likes chess, so he got the life size chess pieces out for us even though it was early in the season. Joyce and...

We booked a girl's weekend at Elmhirst and found it to be the perfect spot for total relaxation. More than anything, the service is amazing. You can feel that this is a family run facility and there is great care and concern for each customer. Everyone was friendly, relaxed and ready with a smile. The food - loved having the...

This place is a family run operation and you definitely get a sense of that when you stay here. This was our second visit and we might just make it a yearly tradition. The Sunday brunch has a spread like no other place I've ever seen before. There are the usual brunch foods, but also a seafood station, cheese and...

Beautiful scenery but on a country road way far in. Would be hard to get to in icy rain. Arrived in the evening around 9. Had a long journey and it was off season but restAurant was CLOSED. They made sandwiches not very good, but charged thirteen bucks each. Other than that nice cottage, we rented DVDs and had a...

Wonderful family weekend getaway! We had a relaxing time, enjoyed a delicious roast beef buffet dinner (we couldn't get enough of the potatoe & spinach soup) and yummy breakfast at the pub. We stayed in a deluxe cabin that had a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living room with a real fireplace. Friends stayed with us...

The Cabin came with everything from starting a fire in the fire place to running the dishwasher. The people at the front desk were nice and very helpful with any questions we had. We all loved the pool and hot tub. We will definitely come back!

This family owned resort obviously cares about the customer experience and their brand. There are a number of little touches quite evident in their facility, from the accommodations, their Spa, and customer service. It's very apparent, from the quality of their kitchen, that they also go the extra mile in making sure your dining experience is over the top as...

A group of us booked cottage 35 for a girls weekend away and really enjoyed our visit. The accommodations were lovely, and the experiences available were enjoyed by most of our group (massage, facials, horseback riding ) we ate at the bar/grill and enjoyed the food available - even me as a vegetarian!! Was a great visit, maybe a little...

Our office went to Elmhirst's for an overnight professional development and team building workshop in early February. Pamela was exceptional in helping us plan our visit, offering suggestions for evening activities and making sure our meeting needs were met. Even when we had some last-minute adjustments to our schedule, they went out of their way to ensure we were accommodated....

We have just returned from our annual trip to Elmhirst and had another a great time. Our cottage was cozy, well-maintained and especially comfortable with the wood fire and peaceful view out to the lake. Our family meal plan provided a tasty buffet breakfast as well as a delicious Saturday dinner and Sunday buffet. The staff were most welcoming and...
