Have the food delivered to your room. Way more romantic and you can have your own wine. Table are set up in the room and they have a fridge to chill your wine.

We booked this at the last minute as we needed some time away with nothing to worry about. That is exactly what we got. The staff is young but amazingly helpful "I'm here so you don't have to get up" was something we heard twice. The rooms are a bit dated but super clean. Nothing is left out. I recommend...

Thank you for your review. The Jr Suites you were in had massive renovations 2 years ago, so it is more a matter of taste if you thought it was dated. Reno's in each Rustic Luxury Jr Suite included New (wool carpets, furnishings, marble, granite, bedding, entertainment system with 50 inch TV and wall finishing's). The Rustic nature of these...

Yes - you can go canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, and loads more activities, but the real star of this resort is the food. We took advantage of all of the non-motorized activities offered free of charge, and enjoyed ourselves immensely...but it was the breakfasts and dinners that we will most fondly remember...oh yeah, and relaxing as a couple /away...

Just came back from a three night stay. Overall it is a relaxing experience. The spa villa overlooks the lake. It is spacious and well appointed with jacuzzi, steamer and sauna. Some may find the semi formal dinner dress code with tie a bit uptight, especially if they pack outdoor gears for Algonquin. The dinner policy is upfront on their...

Thank you Sebastian for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you at breakfast. I am delighted to hear that you broke down and made the choice to experience "dining with a tie" and being "outdoors in Algonquin Park" both on the same holiday, and that you found it such a good experience. Thank you for recommending us as...

My partner took me here as a birthday getaway. I loved the in-room jacuzzi, heated pool and outdoor hot tub. Our king-sized bed was super comfy and the shower was enormous and amazing. The food at dinners was great. The proximity to Algonquin park was great for hiking, and we also went to Adventure Stables for horseback riding. That said,...

We just returned from a 2 night, 3 day stay. It was wonderful! The staff was friendly and accommodating, our room (Master Suite) was lovely with everything you could want in a hotel suite. Room was very quiet, beds extremely comfortable, no noisy a/c that you typically get in hotels (which drives me nuts!!) and had (as all rooms do...

My husband just got back from a weekend at The Couples Resort. This was our first time here. We were looking for a place out of town where we could celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. It sounded perfect. We didn't balk too much at the hefty price tag ($1900 for 2 nights, all in) because we expected the very best....

Thank you for your review. The only way I can make this better for you, I hope, is to let you know that prices for the Jr Suites (on the 1st floor) are lower in December and again you will find the same price next April. But the bigger news is that in Mid-October we will be adding a Hot...
