Feel like a b&b cottage, on the 12 Milles Lake. Gorgeous lake view, very good cuisine, nice and friendly people. We were for Thanks Giving Dinner, excellent four course dinner, bring your wine, be happy dinner :-) Not a 5* hotel as per booking.com.

The moment we entered the lobby we were impressed with the warmth exuded by the log interior. Maria met us and...

While maintaining the charming atmosphere of the lodge, they are doing some updating and making some lovely changes. James is an amazing chef and offers an excellent variety...

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights (Aug 17-22/14) at Heather Lodge on 12 Mile Lake near Minden, Ontario, in a king, lakeview suite. The Lodge is absolutely charming - cozy and welcoming in an old-world sort of way, yet with all modern amenities and some very nice luxurious touches to make us feel pampered and special. The room...

We went with a family group for dinner and were very satisfied. For $40.00 a head we had a five course meal in a charming dining room, overlooking a lake. They are not licensed but you can bring your own bottle and there is no corkage fee. It is quiet, the food and service excellent - what more could you...

My husband and I enjoyed our first multi-day vacation away from home and family at Heather Lodge. We enjoyed staying in the Deluxe suite. The room was immaculate and beautifully appointed. The soon-to-be-repaired stairs to our room were a little steep, and the beautiful bathtub will soon be enjoying better water pressure also. We loved the complementary use of the...

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days at this beautiful lodge. We needed to get away just to relax and enjoy doing nothing.
