This is a great place and the staff is great as well. They do everything they can to make your stay perfect. The food, lodging and service is top notch. I can't say anything bad about this place. Thanks Mike and Kirk.

Highly recommended! Would gladly stay again! My husband and I (and dog) stayed at Red Umbrella Inn one night in January while surveying our lake property. Great location, lakefront, family and dog friendly. The customized service was excellent, very professional and friendly. The food delicious and reasonably priced, hearty meals with many flavour nuances. Modest, clean room with everything we...

Prior to our arrival, any time we called with questions, Michael was there to help us. On our arrival, check in was quick & then he had us all come into the social/activity room to tell us about what the Inn had to offer & that was a lot. We had previously arranged for 1 dinner & 2 breakfasts and...

My husband & I were looking for a dog-friendly resort in the Minden or Haliburton area, and I'm so glad we found the Red Umbrella Inn. We spent four nights in one of two brand new executive cottages (not yet listed on their website) and were quite pleased with the accommodation. The cabin, which sits about 15 feet from the...

The problems started before we ever arrived. I booked a lakeside cottage for the weekend for 199. Per night... Booked in April. Three days before our weekend I was sent an email quoting 350 per night. Contacted them to clear it up. I was told that the cottage was brand new and was worth more than 200 per night. He...
