“Goldenville was the perfect way to relax and enjoy the woods for a few days.”

My girlfriend and I stayed at Alex's resort for a few days in late September and boy, what can I say. First off, the scenery was beautiful. Staying at Goldenville was like camping with all the amenities. Our cabin (all the cabins) are set a mile or two out of town deep in the woods right on a beautiful lake. The stars shine brightly every night and night time was a favorite of ours. Dusk and dawn are not to be missed as the colors reflect off the lake. Second, even though Alex takes care of the cabins with his wife, she was on vacation during our stay. But still, Alex flawlessly handled all of our communications prior to arrival. He was incredibly friendly and even cooked us a fantastic dinner (the Russian apple drink is something I think I'll try to get the recipe for).

The cabins themselves are all prepared for your arrival. They come with wood stoves for heat as well as cooking utensils and dishes. They're quite nice and comfortable and the trip was a great way for us to explore the Ottawa Valley (definitely visit nearby Algonquin park) and be surrounded by the changing leaves. If you need anything, Alex was just a phone call away.

We ourselves were too busy to take advantage of the kayak rentals and whatnot but the property is set up well for children and for groups with a few game courts, bikes for kids, volleyball courts, and boat rentals. There's even a Russian sauna that looked pretty interesting but unfortunately we didn't have the time for it.

All in all I couldn't have asked for a better way to experience the Canadian woods in without actually camping.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: Our fantastic apple drink and how the property is surrounded on all sides by the trees.
Liked least: Nearby Killaloe doesn't have much in the way of food. There's a town that's a bit farther that's much better equipped though.
