“Amazing expierence”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

My friend and I were recently recommended we stay at the Glenn Burney Lodge for a weekend getaway... Best decision made so far all summer. The location is fabulous, it's quiet and right on by the water and only 10 minute drive from town. The rooms are cozy and the staff are fantastic, they're super helpful and friendly!!
But, I'd have to say, my favorite part of it all was the food... It is to die for. We ate there every night. First of all the dining room is beautiful. we got to watch the sun set during dinner! the menu isn't overwhelmingly long making it a lot easier to read, the portion sizes are perfect, and the wine... Ahh the wine was very very nice.

Overall, we had an amazing expierence and can't wait to go back!!!!!

This was our second visit to Glenn-Burney Lodge in the last two years. We stayed in the main lodge building. Rooms are clean and well appointed with comfortable beds. The excellent restaurant looks out over a beautiful view of Georgian Bay. We also made use of the available canoes, which the lodge's offers for their guests use.

What a great place! Just spent a wonderful weekend here with my husband. Beautiful main lodge building has gorgeous interiour with stunning view of Georgian Bay. Loved the rustic decor and art, including a giant totem pole and large stone fireplace in the dining room. We had a room attached to main building- all very clean, with tv, small fridge, wi-fi and screened-in deck. Bedding was top-notch- which I'm usually fussy about but they had really comfortable beds with luxe linens. But best part had to be the meals. Everything from the french toast with fresh berries and fritatta with house-smoked bacon in the morning to the incredible fish platter at dinner was beyond all expectations. We've eaten at many well-known hi-end restaurants here and abroad and this place can definitely hold it's own. We have a cottage about an hour away and are already planning road trips next summer so we can come by for dinner. As for the staff- very friendly and any questions/requests we had were no problem. All in all, it was a great, relaxing weekend, and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had room attached to main lodge building which was convenient because it rained a lot while we we...

Superb location. Young staff but very formal. Food was amazing. During our stay it was very quite and lot of senior citizens were having fun. We were bit isolated with an 8 month old. We will try this place again in summer.

My spouse and I visited this weekend I have to say that I was blown away by the service and charm of this wonderful resort. We arrived in the evening settled in to our queen suite. The room was very clean and well designed. TV was huge and the room provided more than we expected. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was above average.

The staff from start to finish were incredible. Everyone was extremely friendly and catered to our every need without hesitation.

If you go to the lodge, dinner in the restaurant on site is an absolute must. Chef provided us with quite possibly the finest meal we have ever had and the pricing for this level of cuisine was more than reasonable.

After dinner the staff invited us out to a lovely fire outside where we enoyed the rest of the evening under the stars.

We stayed in the fall and I can say without doubt that we will be back next summer. Great resort, great food and great service.

My wife and I stayed at the Glenn Burney Lodge from July 29 2012 until July 31 2012. We had a wonderful time at the resort. We arrived by boat and were able to leave our 25ft cruiser at the lodge's brand new docks. The walk from the docks up to our cabin was steep, even though the path was in excellent shape. The view was worth the climb. Our cabin was very clean and had everything we needed.
On our first night at the resort we ate in the main dining room. The pickerel my wife had was absolutely the best either of us had ever had. I vowed to have it the next night, but was disappointed to hear that the restaurant did not serve dinner on Mondays or Tuesdays.
The staff at the resort were very courteous and friendly and also respectfull.
My wife was concerned about mosquitoes and blackflies, but honestly said, there were one to speak of. We sat on our deck each evening and watched the sun go down. Nweither of us swatted once.
The newly constructed waterfront (licensed) deck was spectacular. All finished in cedar, this was where we ended up eating dinner on our second night. The food was great.
We are avid boaters, and the waters near Parry Sound were warm and not nearly as busy as Southern Georgian Bay.
We had a wonderful time and will go again next year.

The Glen Burny Lodge is located in the woods, a little outside of Parry Sound, right at the Georgian Bay. We stayed there for one night (actually we had planned to stay for 2).

PRO:
- the location is really beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful.
- the dining room is very nice and overviews the lake
- the room's technical equipment was very good (if you attach importance to that):
microwave, big flatscreen, fridge, coffee maker, wi-fi

CON:
- the PRICE!!
- the ground seemed a little bedraggled
- the hygienical conditions: for us, the morst important thing is, that a room is clean. Therefor we would rather do without the tv. on the face of it, everything seemed ok, but on closer inspection you could see that the cleaning had been done (has it been done at all?) very sketchily.
the towels were filthy and so was the bedding, the fridge was dirty on the inside. the same impression in the bathroom.
the "best" was the full diaper on a chair on the balcony - that made us sure, that the room wasn't looked after.

We stayed one night and that was more than enough.
The Glen Burny Lodge has the charm of a holiday camp for teenagers - and if the price was appropiate to that (60-80 dollars maybe) - we would have been satisfied.
Unfortunately the room was more expensive than a room in the Hilton Hotel at the Niagarafalls and that is just ridiculous.
