My wife and I stayed there 3 nights. We were in Room # 10. This room is in need of a makeover and cleaning and not worth the $120/night. We were'nt aware the sink and mirror were outside the bathroom in the bedroom area. Had we known this we would have chosen another room. The room is small with no seating area and no stands to hold your luggage. So we had to used the little cot bed for that (which I didn't know was there as well). It would be better to replace that cot with a couple of luggage stands and maybe a very small desk and chair. The vertical blinds are stained, broken and need to be replaced. Behind the only dresser in the room on the floor was an empty kleenex box, napkins and a 2x2 piece of lumber (I imagine they've been there awhile) and the toilet paper holder feels like it's about to come off the wall. Dave, you might want to get that cleaned up, some things fixed and that lumber stored elsewhere. The bathroom also had a musty, unusual smell that for some reason reminded me of the nursing home my Mother used to be in.
For the other side of the coin.....Dave, Evan and Staff are great. The view of Georgian bay from our private balcony was wonderful and was the key reason why I chose to stay there. The grounds are well kept with a nice little stone driveway leading to the private beach. We spent every day at Sauble Beach and also took in a nice walk to see the Bruce's Caves (worth the small hike). The downtown area has a couple of interesting stores (especially the Emporium).
And we always find it's worth the short drive to Owen sound for dinner.
