It wasn't really a typical resort that we had thought a resort was supposed to be. It feels more like a nice family-run getaway chalet thing. We had 3 meals in their restaurant. Fish and chips is great, breakfast is just so so, 4-5 warm dishes with some fruits, bakeries, deserts, overall a bit overpriced. We didn't get to use any of the facilities because of the weather, so can't really speak for that part. We did enjoy the TV, there are so many channels to watch, made it a cozy night time. The biggest complain we had is flies. There were flies in our room. There were flies in the restaurant, kind of annoying and concerning. What made it worse, I saw a fly lying in the milk container during the breakfast... Might be different during peak season.

Beautiful Stay
This was our 2nd visit to Northridge Inn. We love how beautiful the property is and how it truly feels like an "experience" rather than just a hotel stay. We've stayed in the Cabins, and most recently the Lodge Rooms. Both were super cute and cozy. The lodge had a very spacious sitting area with a fireplace. We purchased a log and had a nice fire with the kids which truly added to the experience. The bathrooms are super tiny which was challenging. The rooms were clean, but maybe could have used a little extra care. We found a couple random items on the floor and under beds. There are kayaks and canoe's available to use, as well as bikes. The resort is also very dog friendly which we loved. The kid's enjoyed many hours in the pool and hot tub while we sat by with drinks. The main lodge is beautifully decorated. The restaurant is stunning, I can see how they host many weddings. The service was a little hit and miss. It was pretty clear that they were understaffed. Every time we ordered even just a latte it was almost as if they hadn't had that request before. We ordered drinks straight off the bar menu located on the bar and all the tables out by the pool, but the bartender at the time had never made it before and seemed to be guessing how to prepare our request. Although everyone was nice, some of the staff definitely seemed to be quite stressed, which is understandable if they are understaffed. Overall it was amazing and we look forward to our return.

Great Place for Young Couples & Families with Kids
North ridge is a beautiful property, but not a good choice for older seniors like us. The steps going down from the main building are an obstacle course with the result that my 84 yr old husband almost fell twice. Also, there were no grab bars in our bathroom. It’s a great place for young couples and families with kids. We greatly enjoyed the serenity and beauty of the grounds. I suspect that they are having trouble getting enough help because service in the restaurant was very slow, and there was no daily housekeeping. Would people rather stay home and collect Trudau’s “free” money?

The property allows dogs, which was nice as we wanted a place to stay with our puppy. Grounds were well maintained and the hotel and rooms were nice. Unfortunately the only on site restaurant option was VERY overpriced for the quality of food. A lot of the options were not available every time we ate, which was quite disappointing considering it was a small menu to begin with. Staff is very inconsistent with mask wearing and Covid safety. Some staff didn’t wear masks at all, some had them on their chins, and a very small few wore them properly. Upon returning home, I thought I forgotten an expensive item in my room and was advised that if they located the item I would be charged an “administrative fee” and the shipping for it to be returned to me. Shipping I completely understand, but an additional fee on top of that is just a money grab on top of an already overpriced resort. When you spend $1000 on a two day stay, you would think courtesy towards guests would come into play when these things happen.

THE MOMENT YOU EXIT OFF THE HIWAY YOU FEEL LIKE TAKING YOUR SEATBELT OFF BECAUSE YOU FEEL YOU ARE NOW ON A JOURNEY OF COMPLETE SAFETY AND RELAXATION. AFTER A SHORT RIDE YOU PULL INTO YOUR PARADISE FOR AS LONG AS YOU BOOKED IT FOR. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A RESORT THAT OFFERED MULTIBLE ACCOMIDATIONS AS NORTHRIDGE INN! FROM LUXURY MOTEL ROOMS TO GLAMPING IN THE WOODS TO THE NICEIST COTTAGES IVE SEEN 2 HOURS FROM GTA. BRAVO AND PLEASE KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB OF HOSTING A RESORT. (IT IS NOT AN EASY JOB RUNNING A BEAUTIFUL RESORT ACOMPYING A WELL TRAINED STAFF FOR ALL THE CUSTOMERS NEEDS!!)
