I cannot say enough about this place. Not only is it beautiful, sparkling clean, spacious and pampering but Trevor is truly the host with the most. It was like having a private chef. Our dinner was served to us promptly and elegantly. The plating was impeccable and the flavours as well. There is a private cedar hot tub right outside your door and lovely trails to enjoy by the Black river. He has thought of everything for your ultimate comfort and to spark romance. Our breakfast the next morning was devine. We have already booked another 4 stays for the year. Do yourselves a favour and check this place out, you will not be sorry.
We wanted something special for our 10th Anniversary and we certainly found it! The ambiance, scenery and Trevor's wonderful meals were absolutely superb! We are very well traveled and feel that Black River Retreat ranks within our top 20 romantic places to stay.. worldwide! We even booked a return visit this winter! If you are looking for a romantic spot within Ontario for 1-2 nights for a special occasion & enjoy the outdoors... this is it! Be dressed for hiking/ campfires!
Highly recommended. We could not have been more pleased! Service, food and accommodations were outstanding. Trevor was the perfect host! The pictures don't even do it justice!! Can't wait to go back. 😃
This spot is beautiful and Trevor was an exceptional host. He dis think of everything, including an extra charge because we stayed two nights instead of one! Have never experienced that before and when I asked for an explanation, he cited additional “operational charges”. How is this exactly? He did not have to reset the room for another couple, he did not have to give us extra towels or housecoats, he did not have to change or wash the sheets. All in all, the ”operational charges” go down. I wasn’t too impressed with being charged extra or the weak explanation on an already expensive booking. Other than that, it was a beautiful setting and his food was outstanding.
By far the best resorts we have ever stayed at. The food is amazing, the hot tub is so relaxing, the decor is perfect and the location is very picturesque. We will be booking again very soon and will recommend to all our friends. Amazing value!!
The perfect place to run away to and enjoy the one on one time you and your partner deserve. Trevor has created a magical sanctuary, the decor, energy, views and food is off the charts. The care and customer service Trevor provided exceeded our expectations. We will be returning again, and again. Absolutely a 5 star experience! Corey & Tori December 2019
A lovely romantic and private place like no other. Trevor, the owner is dedicated to providing a relaxing atmosphere and amazing food. We had the place to ourselves to play games, sit by the fire, watch movies, go snowshoeing and visit the lovely vistas along the river. The hot tub was private and lit by white lights in the trees around us. You can't help but feel at peace and in love! Next time we hope to stay for 2 days! So glad we have discovered it!
Words cannot Express the experience of this retreat. The host has truely created an atmosphere that touches the heart strings of those who can let go of the rush in our everyday world. My wife and I came here for our 30th anniversary and in the midst of being here we began to see each other as we were 30 years ago. I feel in love all over again. This is worth every dollar charged and more.
This was our second stay at BRR and again Trevor hit it out of the ballpark. The food, the atmosphere, the attention to detail is second to none. This is the ultimate couples retreat. What an amazing experience, in fact we’ve already booked our next visit! Thanks for all you do to make this a very special, magical experience Trevor!
We had a wonderful stay - everything was just perfect. The food was incredible. It was beautifully presented and so delicious (both our 3 course dinner - we had the hen and LOVED it & 2 course breakfast), but we were too stuffed to enjoy the s’mores pkg. The love lock is a nice touch, but our favourite part was the cedar hot tub, and the cozy fires. We had a lovely time and whole heartedly recommend. We look forward to returning!
