Relaxing weekend

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 26, 2016
The Loralea Country Inn resort is a great place to get a total cottage experience for a very fair cost. The cabins are clean, include a stovetop, good sized mini fridge, sink and all your dishes etc. Halls lake is just a one minute walk down the hill of the property and it is clean and peaceful.

You have freedom to roam around the resort and borrow paddle boats, canoe, water toys and use the volleyball net, dock, and beach. The best part is each cabin has its own barbeque that is fully equipped and a fire pit. Heather and Bill even provide the firewood which makes it so convenient! Little details around this resort like the potted flowers and deck swing overlooking the lake really add to the experience as well.

The resort is also pet friendly with very reasonable guidelines around having pets in the cabins. It is hard to find resorts that accept pets as part of the family so this was greatly appreciated as well.

Thank you for your kind words Sara. It was wonderful to meet you and your mother. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We work very hard to try and make sure that our guests have the best possible experience they can with us on Halls Lake in the beautiful Algonquin Highlands. We would like to thank you both for the condition that you left our cabin in. It is greatly appreciated that you left it as received. We are happy that you & your mother & father and we can't forget the 2 pets are returning Aug. 7th to enjoy another stay with us.

See you soon
Heather & Bill

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing experience at the Loralea Country Inn Resort! We enjoyed it so much, that we are coming back less than 3 weeks later to stay at the resort again! We used to stay at my parents cottage before they sold it, and it is just as enjoyable staying at Loralea! Staying at Loralea is peaceful, and stress-free. I have my own business, and it is such a relief to spend time at the Inn!

A special thanks to owners, Heather and Bill for accommodating and welcoming our family despite our last minute plans. We were lucky enough to have stumbled upon Loralea at the same time they had a cancellation. We stayed in Cottage 5 - a large 4 bedroom spacious cottage. Although there were only four of us this cottage, it could easily accommodate up to 8 with a large living and eating area for all to enjoy. All rooms were clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Outside we had two BBQs, a picnic table, loads of Muskoka chairs surrounding our own fire pit and a plastic table and chair set. We were even supplied with a dining shelter to keep the mosquitoes out. Heather and Bill were extremely friendly and helpful...very easy going. The cottage is on a beautifully treed lot with a nice sandy beach area and new looking dock. Halls lake is gorgeous! There are paddle boats and a canoe which are FREE to use. Life jackets are supplied if needed. There are lots of inflatable beach toys, as well as sand toys which guests are welcome to use. Movies and family games are also available in the office. Other perks....free wifi (teens loved this), free boat docking, free fire wood and best of all....dog friendly! We had a great time and hope to be back soon for a longer stay!! Thanks so much Heather and Bill! Christine.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the September long weekend and stayed in cabin 1. We both are so impressed with the hosts and the resort. We have stayed at many different cottage resorts and this is definitely one of the nicest, it is absolutely the cleanest. The cottage was spotless and even has fresh towels and sheets on the bed. There is no air conditioning so if you are visiting in the summer be sure to pack a fan. Our cabin did have a ceiling fan but it wasn't close enough to the bed for sleeping.

The resort provides firewood, canoes, paddle boat and even water floaties all at no cost. Beautiful spot we can't wait to go back.

Thank you for your kind words.

It is very important to us that our guests enjoy there time away with us as every ones lives are so busy and stressful. Usually the cabins stay cool as most of them are shaded but the weekend was one of the hottest of the summer I think. I wish you had come to us in regards to a fan we certainly could have come up with one for you to use and make your evening a little more comfortable.

Thank you for leaving the cabin in the shape it was received we greatly appreciate it.

Hope to see you in the future

We had a lovely two weeks at their cottage by Lake Halls.

The views every morning were quite sublime and the hosts very supportive.

Our cottage roomy enough and reasonably equipped with chairs barbecue and firepit outside. The wi-fi was better than expected in most locations in the cottage.

The cottages do vary in size and view.

Nice little beach and dock with lovely grass sweeping down to it with volleyball and outdoor badminton courts

Definitely 4.5 stars really. No screen on door and a few minor points prevent me from giving the full 5* but this did not spoil our time there so I would recommend this to you.
