We stayed for two nights. The cost of our room was $310/night. Immediately upon arrival we had to call for more towels and toilet paper. There were bugs in the corners of the room, our towels were dirty, the pull down blinds were broken, the rooms were dark and dingy and extremely outdated. The flight of stairs to our room were steep and breaking, the railing at the top of the balcony would bend if leaned on. We went down for breakfast and each had a piece of toast and water, and were charged $8.00 each for the "light" breakfast, the coffee we got to go was an extra $2.50. You would think at the cost of the room, breakfast would be included and the place would be maintained and updated. The owners obviously don't care about the look of their resort or the comfort and safety of their guests. The smell outside was awful, like a sewer back up. 10 years ago this was the place to be..... however, they have not put any money into maintaining their rooms and this makes me sad. I would not recommend going here and wasting your money. I for one will never return to this resort again.

Two families of four stayed in two rooms in the annex, one on the first floor, one on the second. The second floor room was very dark and needed some more windows, and had a light out. it was very warm up there. The first floor was a bit nicer, with a front door to the lot. motel-style and back door which opened to the pond, a few more windows, and a window AC unit that chilled the room nicely. The rooms are barely enough for four, with our suitcases and other bags we were a little crammed. These rooms are best suited for light travelers, which we are not. The TV was mostly useless, with bars across the screen and constant rolling of the picture, and not many choices of channels. The sitting area in the back of the room had two nice wingback chairs, but ended up crammed with our food and drinks supplies, and we ended up with ants on our honey jar by the time we left. There simply are not enough surfaces to put your stuff. The bathrooms are small and dated, and just a touch mildewey, and have huge bay windows that look great when you arrive, but you soon realize that you cant leave them open and use the bathroom at the same time. The beds were kept clean and comfortable, with decent pillows, and the grounds are lovely, bucolic, quieting, and super-relaxing, almost forcing you to slow down and take a break. The grills, if you choose to use them, are mostly new, but are all located at the cottages, and you are invading their renters' space if you go to use them and sit at their tables. There is no place for annex renters to grill and sit outside to eat nearby, so keep that in mind. It is in a decent location, with very quick (and free if you get to the desk early) access to Sandbanks, and a highly rated restaurant, the Brick Works within walking distance (closed while we were there). The drive into Picton is relatively short and scenic, and the included wine tasting tour of three vineyards was enjoyable. Bring your bug repellent, as usual on Lake Ontario, the mosquitoes are something out of a horror movie between 9pm and 10pm.

My husband and I decided to spend four nights at this resort and got a great deal with Wagjag. The resort was difficult to find since the address did not appear on our GPS and there weren't any signs on the highway. We had to call to get directions. Our room was in the original farm house so the decor was rather dated but it did add to its charm. It was huge, with an on suite with jacuzzi for two and a separate sitting area surrounded by windows. There was also a gas fireplace that we didn't need. The king size bed was comfortable. The flooring and window coverings would need to be changed. I wouldn't be surprised that the wallpaper originated from when the house was built. It was nice to have the pool just behind the building. As for service, it was excellent. We only had to place a call to the front desk and our needs would be met without delay. The park-like grounds at this resort are well maintained. The waterfront restaurant on site "Restaurant on the Knoll" has a main dining room, lounge and patio with beautiful views of West Lake and the Sand Dunes. The food and service was very good. Do ask for your 20% off coupon at the front desk. You can also obtain a Sandbanks Provincial Park day pass at the registration office.

Room Tip: There is a variety of accommodations - cottages, rooms in lodges and beach houses. These buildings seem more recent. It all depends on what your needs are and if you're travelling with a family or not. The beach houses all have a private deck facing the water.

We stayed at Isaiah Tubbs Resort for 3 days and 2 nights. We went with 2 more families and we all stayed in Lodge 2. We had a good time there.
The rooms we stay are spacious with kitchenettes. There are clean dishes and pots in the kitchenette of my room. They even provide a wine opener which was very handy for us. The bathroom was very clean and tidy but the facilities were old. The air conditioner was quiet in room 1212 but a bit too noisy in room 1211. The screen house attached to each room was a great addition to the room, and very convenient. The barbeque outside was free to use and the food could be taken through the screen house into the room without having to go to the entrance of the lodge.
The staff was very kind. When we need extra towels (We went to swim and came back to shower in our room.) they brought them right away. When one family’s kids were locked out of the room, the staff came immediately to unlock the door for the kids.
We went to the outdoor pool at Isaiah Tubbs every day of the trip. The pool was very nice, although it had some dead bugs in it which should be cleaned out. There were also lounge chairs by the pool. We did not go to the shore close by because there were rocks by the shoreline in the lake which prevented us from going into the water.
There is one nearby attraction that I would like to mention. There is a sports center just farther down the beach. The kids enjoyed the water tubing. It was a great experience for them. Overall I’d say that this resort is worth the money.

Room Tip: Room 1212 with kitchenette was nice and spacious. Air conditioner in room 1211 was noisy. Room 1211 has separated bedroom and a quite spacious living room with fridge and microwave only, no kitchenette

We stayed at the resort for 2 nights with another couple. I have to say that it was a beautiful place, right on the lake, with very comfortable accomodations. We shared a 2 level unit, which was very spacious, it had a kitchenette that was stocked with all the essentials, a fireplace, comfortable beds, everything was clean and the best part was that it was right next to the beach! We spent the whole day on the beach and then went out on a boat ride....rented a boat right on the site. The boat staff were great, very friendly and they gave a great tour of the area, and the rental price was very reasonable. There is a restaurant right on site which had a great patio and view of the beach. We didnt eat there but only because we wanted to see the town but we wished we had as the menu at the resort looked much better than the restaurant in town.

The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful. We called the office for extra coffee in the morning and they came right away. The next time we called for toilet paper and again they came right away.

It is a beautiful place and we were thrilled. I purchased a wagjag for this resort and at first I wasnt sure about the place, especially after reading some of the negative reviews, but really I am so glad we went. We are returning to the resort with our kids in August and we can't wait. Thanks for a fabulous time!
