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...

Our family with 7 people ages 17-53 thoroughly enjoyed our snow kite weekend at Elmhirst Resort. The instructors were great and so was the equipment. It did not take us long to learn how to fly the kites and kite ski on the lake. Our cottage was nice and clean and spacious enough for 7 people. The beds were very...

As has become our new year tradition we enjoyed an amazing weekend as usual at Elmhirst. Always amazes me that a place that I have been coming to for almost 30 years through different generations of my family can keep itself fresh and new. The wifi and TV experience was greatly improved in the cottage which was much appreciated by...

Rented a cottage for the Couch Potato Package. Cottage itself was all we could have hoped for- spotlessly clean and cozy. Staff was most helpful. Meals, which were part of our plan, were less than acceptable, excluding breakfasts. We have been to this resort for meals many times and have always been appreciative of the food and service. Not so...

Friends invited us to Sunday brunch at Elmhirst. We were pleasantly surprised. A wonderful selection including salmon, shrimp, roast beef and pork, breakfast selections including eggs benedict and tempting deserts, plus a selection of cheeses. Extra attentive wait staff completed a wonderful Sunday meal enjoyed with close friends. One of our group said she has been going to Elmhirst with...

Behind the lodge is a lovely grass airstrip so naturally we flew into Elmhirst for lunch. Our table looked out over the lake with an island in view. Fresh herbs were in pots as a centerpiece along with scissors to harvest a few if you wanted. Elmhirst is a beautiful resort on a lake. Well kept grounds, fine facilities, and...

Great view from our cottage of the lake. However the inside didn't match the view. Peeling wallpaper in bathroom, separating flooring in kitchen, old coil stove in kitchen, trim on ceiling pulled away from wall, a TV that was fuzzy and unwatchable on the few channels that we could get. The Inside felt unkept and dirty (found a dinner receipt...
