Has anyone been to Bayview Wildwood resort in Port Stanton, Ontario?

We are considering a family trip there in August '04, but can't find any on-line reviews. I was just wondering if anyone has benn there, and if they would/wouldn't recommend it, etc. We will be travelling there with our 2 sons, ages 8 and 4.

Thanks!

Was there for a business workshop off-season some years ago. Very pleasant spot with excellent (plain) home cooking. Not elegant but should be good for a family vacation-certainly a pretty spot, with stuff for the kids to do and representative of old-style Ontario resorts.

Thanks, LJ! Did you stay in the lodge, or in one of the cabins?

Hi sue:
I have also stayed at Bayview Wildwood and would concur with LJ.
We stayed in one of the cabins.We enjoyed our stay. The food was very good, the grounds were well kept and the staff is great. It's a typical Ontario family resort.Not "fancy" but very nice, and a pretty spot.
You can be in the town of Orillia in a short time from the resort if you need anything.
Regards,

I stayed upstairs in the lodge itself. As I recall, entry was from stairs that faced the parking lot so that the view out to the lake was unimpeded. Very pretty.TV and other mod cons. I seem to remember a sort of gym facility (not a top priority with me but others in our group seem satisfied. Orillia is a charming town (not so small anymore!) and would make a great side-trip. It has a some very good restaurants as well as all the fast-food [places kids love ans some historical interest for those who are into CanLit (Stephen Leacock, a well known Canadian essayist/humourist set many of his stories about this area.)
