“Nice lunch ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

We had lunch. We all had fish and chips. It was tasty, fries were homemade. The next table had burgers. I liked the size of the burgers.(big enough)
The server was well trained. She had everything on time.
Nice atmosphere. Quiet and nice.
Free wifi.
Decor is amazing.
Fish and chips is 11$.

Stayed March 2014

We ran into issues with the planning and communication of our wedding with the centre's staff, but in the end we had a great wedding weekend with your family and friends. It's a beautiful location!

Cabins are nice and cozy, the main lodge is warm and inviting, there is tons for your guests to do on site.

TIP: Be clear with your wedding planner about what you and your partner want!

I just recently attended my 4th wedding at the Eco centre this past weekend, I decided that it was time to actually write up a review of this place that we all love. My wife and I had the pleasure of having them host our wedding in Sept of 2010, and we still can't belive just how perfect everything was. I have been a part of weddings hosted here in both the summer, and the dead of winter, and both were so picture perfect, anybody would be hard pressed to even compare to the natural beauty of the natural landscape.
The staff are amazing, and the guest cabins offer a taste of luxury, all the while being surrounded by the rustic beauty of Northern Ontario.
What draws most people to this area, is the amazing choice of things to do. From fishing to kayaking steps away from the main chalet, to hiking, snowmobiling or ATV'ing...this place has it all, seconds away from your cabin door.
The food in the main chalet is next to perfect, and whether you chose to sit by the fire inside, or relax in the hot tub outside with a cold drink, you will be glad you chose the Eco Resource Centre.
Amazing place to stay for an hour, or a week. Chances are, once you stay, you will count the days until your next trip.

Room Tip: All the rooms are basically the same. They offer 6 guest cabins, all with 6 rooms each, with one on...

My husband and I had the pleasure of having the most delicious meal here during our visit to Elk Lake in March for the ice fishing derby! The homemade buffet meal was scrumptious! We recently had the pleasure of walking the fabulous grounds and would love to book one of the peaceful cabins in the woods in the near future! Simply Divine!!!

Room Tip: Did not stay in a room but will definitely share my tips when we do!

Myself and family stay with the Eco Centre a few weeks back for a family members wedding! What a terrific place! Everything about the Eco Centre was over & beyond what we expected. Food was delicious, rooms were VERY clean, cozy and stylish.The staff were just so accommodating & friendly I cannot be more impressed!
Wonderful, Wonderful Stay
Not to mention the wedding was beautiful & very unique
Will most definitely return in the near future with some friends & family.
If you are in the area I strongly suggest to take the detour out to Elk Lake and stop in!!

Happy travelling

My husband and I stayed recently and had a wonderful time! Meals were great, we snowshoed and had a couples hot stone massage and reflexology treatment! The outdoor hottub was the highlight! Only draw back was the bed was on the small side and not very comfortable. BUT they are renovating the cabins so hopefully that is on their list of things to update! Had a great time!

Myself and some work colleges decided to go on a snowmobile trip starting in New Lyskard Ontario. When one of our sleds ran out of oil, we spotted a sign for the Eco Resource center, not even knowing what it was, we ventured in just looking to use a phone. We came across a beautiful dining room, roaring fire in front of leather couches, and a very friendly wait staff. They said their kitchen was closed but they would open it up for us because we looked hungry. They made us all a fantastic meal, and kept the bar open as well as their hot tub. The manager who was an absolute sweetheart offered for us to stay the night at a very reasonable rate. We already had another hotel booked, but we decided that we were not leaving this winter paradise. They let us play pool, and mingle in the bar all night. After we went to a beautiful cottage, nice and cosy, very updated with all the amendities. In the morning we were greeted with an unlimited supply of bacon eggs, french toast, pancakes... well, everything really. The food was honestly the best breakfast i had ever eaten, all the way to the syrup coming in a sealed can that they had to punch a hole in to get it out (amazing stuff). We made our way out the door, back on our machines to the nearest gas station that the manager had set up for us (wasnt open on sundays). Truely an amazing find, we are going to return every year!
