Maria, James and staff has made it difficult for us travelling forward. They met and exceeded every expectation of ours. We spent six nights here on the snowmobile trip from British Columbia. The room was beautifully appointed, the food top-notch and the inn cosy, quaint and professional. We felt the price was more than reasonable for all we received. We...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three-night visit. Chef James' dinners and breakfasts were incredible both in taste and presentation and his wife, Maria, was a very warm and welcoming host. Our server, Mennie, was professional but also offered some delightful casual conversation between servings. Our room was clean, spacious, and cozy and the grounds were beautiful and peaceful....

This has to be the most picturesque place we have ever stayed. It is a husband/wife operated lodge and this made the atmosphere more comfortable. Our family went there for a mini family vacation and because we went in November, were fortunate to obtain two of the nicest rooms - both with a fireplace and a view of the lake....

This rating is strictly about the restaurants inability to handle a relatively small group of 24 for dinner. Especially when the restaurant was provided the groups menu choices a week in advance. Group arrivals from 5:30 to 6:30 for cocktails. Dinner scheduled for 6:30. Rolls served at 8:05, apps and mains served 8:25 to 8:45. Last person served after 80%...

We recently decided to just take a weekend trip and drive through the Muskoka to Haliburton area. We booked a room at the Heather Lodge for overnight and so glad we did. The woman who checked us in was very nice and for a moderate increase upgraded us from a "garden view" to a loke view room. So glad she...

Recently a group of 13 went to Heather Lodge for dinner. That can be quite challenging for many places with timing, etc. Not so with this fine establishment. We were greeted with a beautiful fire in the sitting room and a server ready to take drink orders. This set the tone for the evening. Once all arrived, we were led...

All about the excellent food and Chef James! Good variety of dishes on the menu and cooked to order. Wine list limited but byob available, good selection of craft beers. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Comfortable rooms equipped with fireplace and Keurig's to brew fresh coffee. Lodge needs to improve its housekeeping, maintenance of the rooms and property overall. Excellent...

As former residents of Twelve Mile Lake we were familiar with Heather Lodge's accommodations for our overflow guests, but WOW how things have changed in the dining room since we were last there. The location, the rooms, the view are all spectacular but the owners Maria & Chef James have really gone upscale on the dining room décor, service, and...

We returned to Heather Lodge after a great stay last summer. This fall we knew we were going back. Heather Lodge is an adults-only lodge (couples, singles, friends, groups, businesses) in cottage country. It puzzles me why people go to cottage country and expect modern furnishings, hi-tech TV, ... thereby missing the Ontario cottage experience entirely. The lodge accommodations are...

I did not stay at the Lodge, I only ate at the restaurant. Kirsten was our waitress and she was excellent. Reservations are normally expected. The menu is 4 courses for $CAD44. There is a choice of 2 out 6 appetizers. There are 5 excellent entrees and 3 dessert choices. The food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. The...
