When I last played golf at Wendigo, I had a great time, the course was hilly inventive and lots of fun. now the whole place is run down. I went to check it out about two months ago and found it almost derelict. the resort seemed to be closed, there were' only a couple of people playing golf. The housing... More

I agree with another reviewer that this place should be shut down. I stayed there in July 2012 and we saw only one worker the entire time. I assumed he was the maintenance man when we arrived, but after staying there two nights, it seems he was the clerk, owner, maid, and anything else. The hotel ran on a generator.... More

No working pool or hot tub...drained tub and pool was locked up and green. They did not disclose anything ahead of time, made us pay at check-in. No continental breakfast other than old... More

Wow, it is hard to know where to start. The place does have so much potential-as you can tell from it's outdated website, it is beautiful but not kept up. We should have known by the unfinished townhomes that were left to rot on it's property and the overflowing trash cans that we shouldn't have stayed. We were there for... More

Being a hospitality industry professional I was appalled by the sad state of affairs at the Wendigo Lodge. The last time I was here was in 2007 and the property is rapidly sliding into a morass. They are understaffed with poorly trained individuals. The room doors appear to be self closing but are not. One exit door was locked by... More

This place is very strange. You drive up a long road and come to a collection of buildings. There are very few clues as to where to go for a meal or whereto check in for a room.

We were really hesitant to check in after reading reviews of this property from last year but after a two-night stay by two of our hockey teams and their families (pee wee and bantams), I think most of the group agreed that it was a decent place - overpriced, however, for the few amenities made available to guests.
