We recently spent two nights at the Black River Retreat, and cannot recommend this getaway enough. Trevor, the owner, has thought of absolutely everything. The food was both delicious and beautifully presented. We had the pork medallions and cedar planked salmon - both were fantastic. I have never eaten dessert so slowly in my life, because I wanted to make it last forever. Breakfast and dinner were provided at a time chosen by us. The rooms - bedroom, sitting room, great room, dining room, games saloon - were all cozy and full of unique features and decor. We were there in winter, and there were extra blankets, slippers, cushions, etc to keep things warm, in addition to two gas fireplaces. There are outdoor fire pits with all necessary materials, including supplies for making S'mores. We enjoyed the cedar hot tub despite the cold temperatures as it's easy access from the sitting room and robes/sandals were provided. Lots of games and activities are available in the games loft, as well as a bourbon/whiskey bar (small extra cost). We were also able to explore the property and trails on snowshoes that were provided. I hope we are able to return in the future, because the Black River Retreat is truly worth every penny.

We are without words to describe this magical place! We came to celebrate 19 years of marriage. Two nights of complete bliss. The setting, the food, the attention to detail, the cedar hot tub, the walking paths, the fire pits and the sound of water falls makes this place a truly magical experience. Trevor was a welcoming host who has created an incredible experience for couples. The entire property is beautifully designed with privacy and tranquility in mind. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back soon! We will be recommending BRR to anyone who will listen.

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.

Just UNREAL!!! A true dream. This place is truely a little slice of heaven. The pictures honestly do not do it justice. Came here with my husband for our Anniversary and it was honestly the most romantic and peaceful escape we were in need of. Trevor is an amazing host and the meals he prepares are mouthwatering. We have never been anywhere like Black River Retreat and we will definitely be booking every year for our anniversary and telling all of our friends and family about this hidden gem. Thank-you again Trevor for such and amazing and unique experience. : )

My wife and I stayed here in September for our anniversary. To say this place is unbelievable and amazing is such an understatement.
We were welcomed by Trevor with a warm smile, very friendly and haply to give us a tour and tell us about the property.
Trevor's culinary skills are impeccable! The food he prepared and delivered was a 10 out of 10!
Black River Retreat is one of the most relaxing places we've been.
Thank you for everything, Trevor! We will be telling everyone about this magical place!!

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!

Everything about this retreat is Amazing. The owner Trevor is the builder, host and chef! This retreat caters to one couple at a time so the entire place is yours while you are a guest. Trevor has brought the outdoors in as everything is made from trees and wood in the area. Attention to detail is everywhere from the tree coat racks and sconces, etc.. There are two fire pits that are already set up and ready to for you. A cedar barrel hot tub and the food...wow the food! Exquisite is my best description; to look at and enjoy eating. Every meal is absolutely delicious! We had booked for thanksgiving weekend and have booked that holiday for the next few years! Sorry; but do yourself a favor and book here for a couple of nights, relax and enjoy. Hope you love it as much as we did!

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!
