“Friendly Stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Owners where super nice and very accommodating. Very clean and the bed was comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the cottage but it was exactly what we needed. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Riding motorcycles, we'd been rained off Manitoulin Island and were looking for somewhere to retrieve a few days holiday. We selected Oakwood Motel in Gravenhurst. Renate gave us one of her cabins. We had two queen sized beds and a decent kitchenette equipped with enough stuff to avoid restaurants for a few meals.
Her property is maintained to a very high standard. No they don't accept pets, but her attention to detail makes her rooms among the cleanest I've been in and most likely good for those with allergies.
Renate is a delight as hostess of her domain. We shared a cup of tea and her quick wit and storytelling was great fun one late afternoon. Yes, Renate, your motorcycle friends enjoyed their stay and will definitely return next time Muskoka beckons.

Nothing fancy, but my efficiency cabin was clean and comfortable, and the location is convenient to both the highway and downtown. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. Next time I'm in Gravenhurst, I'll be back at the Oakwood for sure.

It's not the Ritz if that is what people are expecting . It is a very clean, comfortable place to stay. The rooms are a little larger than usual and equipped with dishes and cutlery. One could easily make a simple meal in the microwave. It also has a small refrigerator and Wi-Fi. We will definitely stay there again when in that area!!!

We started our stay in a hotel chain we were familiar with, this turned out to be a bad plan. as soon as I got up the next morning went to the bed and hotel a cross the street and told them about the problem with the hotel. She said she could help even though this location was full. She set us up in a suite with a kitchen. Very clean, plenty of room for the kids and it saved our vacation.

Room Tip: Stop looking for chain hotels. This is a small town and not very commercial. Easy to walk to everyth...

Perfect stop just off Hwy. 11. Clean and comfortable and the owners are very accomodating! Many beautiful, winding roads to choose from. Within walking distance to just about any store you need. Coming back, for sure!

I cannot say overstate what a great place this is. Close to downtown and small walk to many services like Tim Horton's,LCBO , Wild Wings . 5 minute drive to the famous Gravenhurst Wharf area including the Segwun. Rooms are bright,comfortable and very clean with all the small amenities you need for an enjoyable stay like cable tv, microwave and small fridge. But what makes this place extra special are the 2 owners, Markus and Renata, and the houeskeeping staff who always provide a warm welcome and are very helpful in providing advice, information and suggestions with a smile. I am a traveller of much experience and I recognize unique quality when I see it. A gem !
