As has become our new year tradition we enjoyed an amazing weekend as usual at Elmhirst. Always amazes me that a place that I have been coming to for almost 30 years through different generations of my family can keep itself fresh and new. The wifi and TV experience was greatly improved in the cottage which was much appreciated by...

Rented a cottage for the Couch Potato Package. Cottage itself was all we could have hoped for- spotlessly clean and cozy. Staff was most helpful. Meals, which were part of our plan, were less than acceptable, excluding breakfasts. We have been to this resort for meals many times and have always been appreciative of the food and service. Not so...

Friends invited us to Sunday brunch at Elmhirst. We were pleasantly surprised. A wonderful selection including salmon, shrimp, roast beef and pork, breakfast selections including eggs benedict and tempting deserts, plus a selection of cheeses. Extra attentive wait staff completed a wonderful Sunday meal enjoyed with close friends. One of our group said she has been going to Elmhirst with...

Behind the lodge is a lovely grass airstrip so naturally we flew into Elmhirst for lunch. Our table looked out over the lake with an island in view. Fresh herbs were in pots as a centerpiece along with scissors to harvest a few if you wanted. Elmhirst is a beautiful resort on a lake. Well kept grounds, fine facilities, and...

Great view from our cottage of the lake. However the inside didn't match the view. Peeling wallpaper in bathroom, separating flooring in kitchen, old coil stove in kitchen, trim on ceiling pulled away from wall, a TV that was fuzzy and unwatchable on the few channels that we could get. The Inside felt unkept and dirty (found a dinner receipt...

Great area, cottages were nice and some are updated but no a/c for the hot, humid days and nights in our 3 bedroom. Ceiling fan was undersized for the living/ding/kitchen area. No other ceiling fans in our unit. Fridge broke but was replaced within the hour and no food loss, the great staff replaced everything form one fridge to the...

My lovely wife and I just returned from a three night stay at Elmhirst Lodge. When we were checking in we were greeted by a great customer service representative, her name was Wilma. She made us feel welcome right away. Great job! We then went to our cottage which was a "Superior Cottage". It was small but cozy with 2...

My girlfriend and I spent this past weekend at Elmhirst Resort. It was an awesome time. We booked the Couch Potato package so that means we had Saturday breakfast and dinner and Sunday brunch included. Saturday the food was ok but the Sunday brunch was like no other! There was seafood, roast pork, prime rib, all your regular breakfast food...

I purchased a 3 night package for my husband's birthday so he could fish. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was rainy, cold and windy so the lake was choppy and we didn't rent a boat. The dock was visited by several Canada geese and it was very unpleasant fishing off the dock because of the poop everywhere which...

Got married here this past weekend. Steve, Wilma, Karen, and David were all such a pleasure to deal with and put up with my countless emails and requests. Steve (the owner) was super accommodating throughout the whole process and managed to save my rained-out wedding day with quickly moving everything from the outside area to inside, giving us great indoor...
