The room was a good size with a small balcony and it is located metres from the beach. The room was dirty with stains on the carpet and the armchairs. Although it had a jacuzzi tub, it was rusty so it was for showers only. The small fridge in the room was so noisy that we barely slept and the beds were uncomfortable. Upgrades are needed!

I would love to give this property a better review , but it is evident that the current owners need to spend more time and money on this potentially lovely property. We had stayed a few times at this property, in the late 90's when it was Norloch Lodge and was wonderful , and again in 2008 when it had started to go downhill. The property is in a wonderful location on the lake, with beautiful views and great waterfront and huge trees. We gave it a try again in late September in spite of poor reviews, because we had loved it in the past. Crystal and Ryan are welcoming and helpful, but they face a huge job managing this large property on their own. Some of the difficulties can be blamed on the pandemic which shut things down until July. However it appears that the owners need to spend time at , and money on this property. It is very tired and desperately needs many upgrades. The units were surprisingly clean for their age, but the carpets are stained and need replacing, the furnishings are old and dated, and some of the dirt is ground in and unable to be removed after years of use. We had stayed in these suites when they were new and we know how they should look. The cottages are very old and likely in much worse shape than these newer units. In these difficult times, we can be a bit forgiving, but please owners either sell this property to someone who wants to care for it, or spend some time and money to reinstate it to its former glory. Your staff is doing the best it can with the limits they have to deal with. I would like to come back someday and give it another chance because it has potential to be a great property.

So my friends and I stayed on last week of September. The room was super cold, when we turned on the heater there was a very nasty burnt smell that lasted for 30min or so. The room warmed up but there were other issues; there were stains in the carpet, mold in the corners of the bathroom and like 1/2 a roll of toilet paper. The TV remote was super sticky and we could barely change the channels. The cupboard where the fridge is located looked like an animal had chewed off the corners and were actually wood chips on the floors. The staff were very welcoming and courteous with zero complaints on customer service. The fire pit was perfect and you cant beat the location of the lodge. We had a bbq outside the room so it was very cool. I don’t mean to be hard, but reviewing very subjectively.

This was just what we were looking for! What we wanted was a relaxing getaway for two complete with lake access, a BBQ, firepit, and a place to sleep. We stayed in a private cabin close to the lake. The space suited our needs, though I'd consider this as 'rustic' not luxurious. The king bed was great, and restful sleeps were enjoyed each night. Our private BBQ on the porch was put to good use during our stay. Access to the beach was easy - a walk of no more than one minute. Note that the beach is not touching the water, as to say that it is elevated and there are a few steps from this area to the water. Plenty of lounge/Muskoka chairs and umbrellas available. The firepit was a great way to spend the evening. Ryan and Crystal are great hosts. One can notice the recent improvements that they've undertaken, and the property is well maintained (for example, pruning trees so that clear views of the lake are presented). I'll give them credit for the small insect population too, as we did not need much repellent! I'd recommend this place! It's not everything to everyone, but it worked great for us! We'd consider returning next year if we are looking to stay close to home, or perhaps in the winter as they are open year-round. Thanks for a great summer weekend!

After having a really bad experience staying at different cottage within a short driving distance we came to the lake of Bays Lodge and were very please and happy to stay at such a nice clean place. I recommend this lodge.
