We spent three relaxing days at Elmhirst's Resort to celebrate a November birthday. Our one bedroom cottage was clean, comfortable and fully equipped and we had a lovely view of the lake from our deck. Wifi in the cottage was excellent. The fireplace was a welcome feature during the chilly evenings. The grounds of the resort are very well-kept and...

Staff did a great job of putting together a women's weekend that was a lot of fun. Large cottages facing the lake were perfect for friends getting together and would also be fantastic for families. 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms - large living room and kitchen with your own BBQ. The food was great and the spa facilities were very...

What a fantastic weekend I've just had with my girlfriends! Elmhirst's Resort is such a phenomenal place. Excellent staff, accommodations, activities, etc. So beautiful. The (extremely clean) cottages are fitted with lovely, comfortable bedding. It was like sleeping while wrapped in a cloud. The food was top notch at both the pub and the restaurant. I have never seen a...

I attended a wedding here recently. The grounds and buildings are nice and there are loads of activities on site (we didn't do any of that, just a wedding, but they obviously have plenty to do.) Staff was good. Dinner included pork, and beef ribs as well as a smoked brisket. The brisket was very good, but both types of...

These cottage rentals are fun for kids and families. There is an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a lake to swim in, kayaks, water bikes and a canoe (no extra charge), a giant chess board, a small gym, a whirlpool beside the indoor pool, plus a lot of the cottages have their own dock to fish from. Once a day...

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. Thanks as well for mentioning the facilities you enjoyed and noticing the amenities in your cottage. I apologize for your discomfort with the dock. There are 2 docks where all the seagulls tend to congregate and we have searched diligently for a way to deter them without disturbing...

If the weather is good then the canoeing and other beach/water activities can be enjoyed. The outdoor pool is nice but cold! If it is raining then you can have a spa day or go swimming. However, the indoor pool is not the biggest or the cleanest! The change rooms need to be fixed up and cleaned better, too. We...

This lovely individual cottage resort with main lodge restaurant and catering facilities is on Rice Lake near Peterborough. The interiors of the cottages are quite nice, although some of the steps and stairs outside need attention to avoid accidents. Restaurant food is good.
