I'll start by saying that hubby planned this whole getaway for us, and found this resort during his internet search. He was looking for a place that was romantic, all-inclusive and within our budget. A cross-continental trip was ruled out quickly due to the cost. When he mentioned this to me as an option we did our due-diligence and researched... More

We've stayed at the Couples Resort four times in the last eight years, and have never had a bad experience. It truly is an all-inclusive experience in a rustic, boutique setting. We've stayed at their Junior, Master, and Villa suites, and can heartily recommend all of them. Lavish with no expense spared for amenities; the full-sized outdoor hot tubs in... More

The dinner meals were heaven. There was a wonderful selection of choices on the menu with portions to satisfy any hunger. Service was exemplary. All of our requests were met. We've never been treated so well. Fine jazz to set the mood just right. Couldn't have asked for more.

The accommodations were very luxurious as we stayed in a Chateau. It was beyond our expectations. Friendly and helpful staff. Great food and choice of activities including a Park Pass to Algonquin Park. I had a wonderful facial at the spa.

Our anniversary is in November and we usually head south for our getaways, but this year needing to stay closer to home for health reasons, we chose to stay at the Couple's Resort in Whitney, ON. We might never go south again, lol. This place was amazing in so many different ways. The staff were always available, and genuinely happy... More

My wife and I spent had our 2nd anniversary here. The property is nice but lacks amenities. We came in the fall and it rained constantly so we could not try the pool or any water sports, but we did pass time playing pool. They give you a pass to Algonquin park which is nice and saves you money. Food... More
