Dalvay was built by an American originally as a summer house (hard to believe it is so large but the Victorians were big on that). It is owned by the province but managed by a private company and they do a good job with a summer only property. The rooms in the main house are rustic but charming and there are newer built cottages around the lake as well for families. The house is amazing and an addition was built on to enlarge the dining room but the food is nothing over the top. The high tea is nice in the summer but expensive. The best thing about the Hotel is staying in the main building and wandering around the public areas if you love old buildings like I do. It's not about the room here - it's about the building and the location. Small beach across the street but everything else is a drive away. I love to go and wander around the hotel and eat there sometimes (or do high tea) but the cost is a bit much sometimes for what the rooms are like.
