    Baycrest Lodge - we highly recommend !
    Baycrest Lodge is fantastic! Our room was clean and spacious, with a large spa bath and an awesome view over the lake from the balcony. The Owners - Jody and Barry - are lovely and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. The swimming pool is heated and was a wonderful treat on a crisp morning - and their bathrobes are as soft as cotton wool - would love to know where they buy them! We would highly recommend Baycrest and look forward to staying there again.

    We enjoyed our stay at Baycrest Lodge so much so we booked another night! The owners were very helpful with a couple of small issues we had. Nice large room with great amenities - fluffy towels & good coffee! We also enjoyed an hour around the pool with a glass of wine!
