We ventured into the Kawarthas for the first time recently, and decided to stay at Viamede. We had heard mixed reviews from friends who stayed there years ago, but the price was good and, because we stayed midweek, even got an upgrade to a 1-bedroom suite while booking.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a charming Yorkshire lady, and we spent a while talking about things back home, before heading to our (enormous) room. In our conversations with various staff, we found out that renovations have been happening under a new owner, who we later met. He's quite young, but seems very passionate.
Everyone we spoke with was helpful, friendly, and competent. The food, both at breakfast and dinner, was on par with restaurants in Toronto. The grounds are beautiful, and it seems that in the summer, there is so much to do.
We have booked our stay for the summer already.More
