    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?

    Rooms misrepresented on site, also not very clean. Amenities weren’t well maintained. Breakfast shut down/chef left early both days we were there and we had to go looking for breakfast elsewhere (very limited options as the location was in less populated area). Guests in room above us were loud all night until 4am. No one around from the hotel to deal with this.

  • 6.0.Good

    Before booking my stay, I read a lot of great reviews of this place. I was looking for a boutique hotel on a lake with top-notch food, amenities and service, and I was happy to pay $300 a night to meet those criteria. Unfortunately, the Northridge does not live up to the reviews and was not worth the extra expense. Where to begin? It's clear a lot of money was spent on the renovation of the hotel, and the common areas are just gorgeous. However, there is a lot of neglect visible around the property. Overgrown grass, spiderwebs, chips in the paint in the rooms. While the decor is instagram-worthy, it's obvious that underneath is a cheap, temporary building (like a cabin at a caravan park). The bathrooms in the rooms are tiny and lack light. I find that luxury is in the details, and those details are missing. Some things I would like to have seen are big, fluffy towels or robes in the rooms. I was visiting for a special occasion (mentioned when booking) and while I don't expect special treatment, a glass of sparkling wine or something in the room would go a long way to making guests feel special. The setting is beautiful, as is the restaurant, but the food and menu do not live up to the 5 star prices. The food is OK, but not good enough to warrant a price tag of $22-$30 per main dish. No espresso coffee available, but each cup was $4? Cocktails were amazing, but that's about the only impressive part of the food/beverage offering.

    Beautiful northern getaway!!

    Beautiful resort and location. Everyone was very hospitable and the resort was picture perfect. The menu could use a little work, as the food was quite plain and bland for the price. Otherwise everything met expectations and would definitely return.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible experience with this hotel. I had bought 2 nights at The Northridge Inn as a Christmas gift to my boyfriend through Expedia and everything had been confirmed. 3 days before we were supposed to check in, I emailed the hotel to tell them I might be checking in late because the hotel is a 3+ hour drive for us. I then get a response from the hotel stating that they are closed for the season. I PANICKED because why was I able to book their hotel for a weekend away in January if they are closed? I shouldn’t have been able to book the hotel and receive an email confirmation if they are closed...My boyfriend was so excited about our weekend getaway that I had gifted him and I had to tell him “sorry, we aren’t going anymore.” I am completely disgusted that I wasn’t contacted by anyone in advance to tell me that the hotel in closed. If I hadn’t emailed the hotel to confirm, then my boyfriend and I would have driven over 3 hours from Toronto to get to The Northridge Inn. The Northridge Inn seemed very unapologetic and didn’t seem to care about any of this. What is even WEIRDER is that The Northridge Inn advertiseD winter activities on their website. Why have winter activities advertised if you are CLOSED during the winter? This whole situation was just awful and unprofessional.

    Festive Stay

    We chose to stay here for a few days between Christmas & New Year. Guest service was excellent throughout. King Room (overlooking lake) was very comfortable. On-site Restaurant & Bar was great. Would highly recommend!
