We just spent our second year in a row vacationing at Sunnylea Resort and I felt I needed to share what a great place it is to go to get away and have a wonderful vacation.
When we first picked Sunnylea as our choice to vacation at, it was because I read how it was a great location for fishing and wasn't too far from home. It also had stores, restaurants & even the LCBO right down the street from the resort. I liked the idea of once the car was parked, it would stay parked for the remainder of the trip.
The owners make you feel so welcome.They not only provide you with the services they list on their website, they will lend out personal items from their home, tool-shed or wherever it takes to accommodate you.
We have stayed in two different cabins and both were very clean and the rates were very reasonable. If you are into fishing like we are you will be very pleased to know that you don't even have to venture out very far from shore to catch an abundance of many different types of fish! If you don't have a boat no worries because they have motor boats & canoes you can rent or just take out one of the paddle boats for free.If you prefer to fish from shore, there are many beautiful spots to enjoy that are within walking distance from the cabins. I can not even think of one negative thing to say about my experiences there except that they are never long enough! We are looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: They have all different size cabins to accommodate you whether you are travelling solo or in a group...

We have been here a few times on the ATVs. Clean cabins and affordable. Easy access to trails, gas and food. Hosts are accomodating, we had to borrow a few tools, etc for repairs and no issues.

Room Tip: Small cabins are nice and you can drive right up to them

Great Location, 1 1/2 hours from Toronto, 2 1/2 from Niagara. The cottages are well equipped, clean, and the rates are very reasonable. We have been going for more than 8 years to relax and do some fishing ( always enough for a fish fry ). There is lots of room for kids to play, have a campfire, swim and just have a good time. Hap and Shirley have always been very friendly and rectified any concerns. Just came back and am booking for the Fall.

We had a most fantastic Thanksgiving weekend at Sunnylea cottage resort in Port Severn. The owners were very accomodating and the cottage was clean, homey and comfortable. Perhaps these cottages are older but they had all the comforts of home and we were very content! This was not our first time at Sunnylea and it definately won't be the last! Thanks Hap and Shirley!

I'm surprised not to find any reviews on this resort but thought I would go ahead and be the first.

I've seen some postings about this resort but think that people need to keep in mind that this is not meant to be a 5 star resort and the cottages are not brand new but thats all part of cottage life that people need to remember.

I have returned for a weekend in September for the last 3 years with a group of friends. The cottages are older but the one thing that we always comment on is how clean they are. The property is well maintained and there is a great pool available too.

There is a shared firepit that is always ready for use and is cleaned out regularly, firewood is supplied. I have been to many cottages where you have to buy your own firewood. There are boats available for rent and a shared paddleboat. There is also a playground available for the kids. Not sure what else you could ask for.

I would recommend this resort to others and think it is a fun getaway place for all!
