Cabin was clean with all essentials needed. Sharon was unbelievably hospitable and accommodating ... she even packed us a to go breakfast and coffee since we left early. Food was very good quality and reasonable. Very relaxing place. We will be back next year.

Had a wonderful couple's experience for a snowmobiling weekend. Discovered the location while stopping for lunch the previous year. We are returning this summer. The rooms in the lodge are very comfortable. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel welcome. As for the food, the restaurant is to DIE for! I am French from France, and...

Stopped in for breakfast on Thursday. The classiest, best breakfast we have eaten in Ontario. Beautiful presentation and great food. The french toast with real maple syrup is a must try. Clean, clean clean everywhere. Good service and a great view, on a very cold winter day. The washroom waste paper containers are a real novelty. They are open for...

We found this location researching venues for our wedding and oh I found a gem. Sharon (the owner) was amazing, her staff were amazing and they made our day the happiest day I could have asked for. They were accommodating. My guests loved it. They really went the extra mile to make sure we were well taken care of. The...

Last week's sledding trip took us to Spectacle Lake Lodge for a couple of nights again in a new year. As usual the food, rooms and service were excellent. This year, due to a breakdown on the trail, we were going to be very late getting in one night. We called Sharon to let her know the situation. She just...

We visited Spectacle Lake Resort twice several years ago, when our kids were teenagers, and recently returned with our adult son and his girlfriend. This is a small resort, with cottages and lodge rooms overlooking a beautiful little lake. The cottages are not luxurious, but are clean and comfortable, and each has a fire pit outside as well as as...

Owners are relaxed, organised and friendly. The setting is fabulous--lots of fun to be had with kayaks, canoes and paddle boats. Food was tasty, expecially the 'melt in your mouth' prime rib --particular kudos to our regular waiter Jeff for his good humour amidst the chaos. Both lodge rooms and cabins were clean and comfortable...an absolutely terrific place in which...

We just came back today from Spectacle Lake Lodge. We loved our room, Lodge Room #1, especially since we had a patio and picnic table right on the beach. We loved it so much we booked for next year while we were there. The lake was beautiful, warm. Hassle free to use the boats, fire pit, and hot tub. Fantastic...
