Facilities & Amenities

Facilities & Amenities

Drawing energy from its lakefront setting, activities at the 200-acre estate are designed to reinvigorate. Golfers can tee off on the 18-hole course, designed by Stanley Thompson and Clinton "Robbie" Robinson, or receive expert instruction from the club's golf professional. The warmer months welcome tennis and a good number of water sports like canoeing, tubing, and boating, while guided history and nature walks offer a glimpse into the resort's rich history; there is also a nice range of winter offerings, including cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowboarding, sledding, and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

The resort's fitness room comes stocked with treadmills, elliptical machines, multi-station equipment, and free weights; in addition, an indoor swimming pool encourages relaxation year-round. Fitness aficionados can also participate in a yoga class, and personal training sessions are available upon request.
