Peace and Tranquility Awaits!
We are looking forward to reopening Monday June 15th, and are excited about having you stay with us at our tranquil spot on Lake Simcoe. We will look the same but have altered some of our normal practices and experiences to coincide with Public Health regulations and recommendations for the comfort and safety of our guests and staff. The grounds and gardens to stroll, the trails to walk, and the lake to swim, all served up with some fresh air and our heritage hospitality, remain a serene and peaceful backdrop to your stay.
As restrictions are eased, we hope to expand on the initial services and amenities from phase one of the reopening. The facilities and activities we offer are based on provincial guidelines and may be subject to change.
