I stayed two nights at The Glen House Resort and was very disappointed. The location on the St Lawrence is a lovely quiet bay, but it seems the owners have forgotten to maintain this resort. The internet is not reliable, the rooms are musty and 30 plus years furnishings. Dated furnishings are fine if cleaned and repaired, but in the three days we were there housekeeping never cleaned any outdoor chairs, vacuumed the carpeted deck or regularly picked up the restaurant take out containers. This location could be such a gem.

I stayed two nights with my family. The carpets smell, the beds are uncomfortable and they take forever to empty the garbage cans. Our sink was clogged. The WIFI barely worked and was unsecured. They are understaffed and the resort looks old and neglected. The beach is full of seaweed and unusable. We had nothing to do. I paid $500 for 2 nights and wanted to leave after one night.

We had a great king room overlooking the small beach and river. Lovely to sit on the balcony and see the ducklings, mink running on the beach, etc. Great restaurant, beautiful challenging golf course across the street.

Our spacious room had a beautiful view of the river and chairs to sit on the porch area to enjoy. Staff were friendly. The property is nice with an outdoor pool in summer, a small swimming area and indoor pool (not open due to COVID). It is nicely located 20 minutes outside Gananoque and right along the biking trail. The onsite restaurant has pretty good selection of food for breakfast and dinner and decent food (need to reserve ahead for 2 seatings for dinner). Be prepared to pay for your meals each time with the restaurant instead of having charged to the room to pay at the end. The resort caters to groups of golfers who stay over on the weekend so they will be a little loud before and after dinner until around 11 p.m. then they will quiet. Golfers and groups on weekends will be in the restaurant for dinners and can be a little loud.

We enjoyed our stay we were n Pinewoods on the ground floor. We looked right onto the pool I would have preferred to be a couple of rooms over. Room is a bit tired but the bed was comfortable. Really needs some new outdoor furniture. A few Muskoka chairs around the grounds would be wonderful. The let down for us was the dining. We expected to find a nice dining room with an interesting menu but it’s just pub fare. What we had was good, nothing special but we heard other diners complaining about their food. No vegetarian options on the menu.

Hello MareeC0x, Thanks so much for your thoughtful, polite review. Happy to hear that, over all, your stay was satisfactory. I'd like to apologize for the lack of lawn furniture on the resort's grounds. Normally, our beautiful grounds feature chaise lounges, picnic tables and, yes, Adirondack chairs for all guests to use outside of their guest room and immediate patio area. Unfortunately, it was suggested by the local health authority that we reduce the number of "touch points" on the grounds to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, so these chairs were placed in storage for the season. There was a lot of uncertainty and fear during the early days of the pandemic that influenced public health policies like this; while we did encourage all guests on our social media platforms and website to bring there own lawn chairs for safety's sake, we expect a much-welcomed change in outdoor furniture policy this coming season :) We apologize that our menu last summer was not up to your standards, and we openly admit that it was a change we implemented with much hesitancy. The menu was designed to be an even pub-casual fine dining split, in order to encourage an increased demand in take-out dinners. Fortunately, knowing what we've learned from last summer, a new menu is in the works. Once again, thank for your review and your patronage! Wishing you good health, Sean
