The location of this place was fine however; there were a number of issues that will prevent us from ever staying here again. -trailer was not winterized leaving us with no water for up to 1-2 days -some staff were not pleasant to deal with (especially old man in the office) -being students, a 9 month contract (Sept.-May) did not...

My Fiancé and I stayed at this resort last summer and had a great experience. The owner was super friendly and very informative! The office staff were great too. They had everything ready when we showed up- even when we arrived a few hours earlier than expected. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage for weekend. The cottage was cozy,...

My family stayed at this resort in August and had a great time. My two grandchildren loved the beach area. The lake was weedy but they still played by the waters edge while I sat and read a book in the sun. They also enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing horseshoes, and fishing off the dock. If you are looking...

Lancaster Resort is situated on the southern tip of Chemong Lake, just 10 minutes northwest of Peterborough. This means you can enjoy all the best that nature has to offer without sacrificing any of the comfort and convenience of modern, urban life. Encounters with wildlife (of the pleasant leisurely kind!!) are never hard to find; nor is a warm, cosy,...

Lesson learned - never travel again without checking Trip Advisor first! As an Event Planner with 12+ years in the hospitality industry, I don’t think I have ever stayed in worse accommodations or been treated with such disrespect. I was excited to have a well-deserved week off and had booked three nights in a cottage, at the last minute. When...

My stay was pleasant and relaxing. I am surprised by some negative comments about this resort placed by others. If they were expecting Hotel quality facilities perhaps they should have gone to a hotel. The cottages were simply nice and clean and provided cottage atmosphere. The grounds were well maintained and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I especially...

The photos and info on the website are very misrepresented. We were very disappointed when we drove up as this was not what the website depicted. The lake is full of weeds. There was some sand at the beach area but it is unswimable d/t the weeds. The pool area is nice. If I had showed up with young kids...

“My fiance and I are pretty laid back and easy going. We tend to camp instead of renting a cottage but last year we decided to switch it up and just happened to see this place and thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed, though the lake is weedy we also knew this going in so we bought our fishing gear accordingly. We also used the canoe all week provided by them to fish instead of renting a boat. Though the canoe needed alittle bit of help, the owners were more then happy to provide a few screws to fix the seat and we were off to the races. Fishing was great! We also brought out two black labs along with us on the trip, I cant say how nice it was to find a dog friendly park. We got to spent all week with our whole family! Lancaster cottages was a wonderful place everyone from the owners to the other renters were all very friendly! And we just booked our second summer with them this year and we cant wait to go! Thanks Lancaster cottages!”
