I'll start with the few minor details that I think could use improvement... when we arrived, our window crank was broken. Luckily my spouse fixed it for the hotel. Hooks for your robes in the room to dry would be handy! Our patio where the hot tub was (junior suite) was covered in wet soggy leaves. A simple sweep with...

We found the resort on google when searching for a Romantic Ontario getaway. Although a little pricey, it truly was well worth it. The accommodations were beautiful, the food was excellent the staff outstanding, and the quiet ambiance provided time for my husband and I to simply reconnect. The story of the resort and meeting one of the benefactors while...

We chose Couples Resort to celebrate our 25th Anniversary over a sunny Caribbean vacation . Couples Resort did not disappoint! We stayed 2 nights in a Jr.Suite complete with an indoor hot tub, outdoor hot tub and wood burning fireplace. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. In the pictures on the resort web site, it appears...

My partner and I stayed here for three nights in early March. The room was wonderful with an in room Jacuzzi, on deck hot tub and a wood burning fireplace, with all the complimentary hardwood we could burn provided by the hotel. The spa services were excellent. I had a massage from Aaron and I was left feeling very limber....

Went with hubby for weekend away. Great place! Quaint cabins with hot tubs outside which is beautiful at night time in the snow. Food pretty good. Wasn't sure about dress code being formal but was a nice night out. Felt like a date. All rooms have wood burning fireplace. Highly recommended dog sledding and spa. Hiking was amazing and birds...

My husband and I first visited this resort back in 1993 when I think it was called the Bear resort. Twenty years later we returned for a getaway. We have never looked back. Once a year we come for two or three nights. The food is amazing. Definitely 5 star. A huge variety of wines to choose from and a...

We stayed in a middle floor Masters Junior Suite middle in early February for two nights. The room was very large, spotless, comfortable, and beautiful. The hot tub on the balcony was our favourite feature, and we got lots of use out of the wood-burning fireplace. The food and service were both excellent. Lunch is not included in the booking...

We had a great long-weekend and really enjoyed the CR and we would probably go back again. Our only issue is with the expectation that this is a 5 star resort, and the cost was certainly reflective of a 5 star but it is not a 5 star. CR does not come close to a Red Leaves/ Marriott or a...
