The resort is a few hours’ drive from Toronto and Ottawa, tucked away among pine trees on the banks of the Beaver Creek River.
The main lodge, where most of the guest rooms are located, has a rustic, cabin-like feel to it. There are modern amenities though, too, including flat-screen TVs.
Use your dining credit at the onsite steak house. The menu includes hearty dishes such as orange cardamom chicken supreme and lemon oregano pork tenderloin.
There are plenty of activities available to keep you busy. You can rent ATVs, canoes, bikes, and small boats.
Beaver Creek River is a great place to cast out a line for largemouth bass and muskie.
Pets are welcome at the resort.
Hastings County, Ontario: Artisan Galleries Hidden Away in Eastern Ontario
Hastings County is located in eastern Ontario, about two hours from Toronto and Ottawa. There’s a rural landscape here, full of lakes, rivers, and provincial parks.
Artists' haven: Hastings County has one of the highest concentrations of artists in Ontario—there are twice as many artists here than the national average.
Follow the Arts Route and you’ll see the works of the locals firsthand. Two galleries on the route are near the resort: The Old Hastings Gallery, housed in a circa-1890s general store, features elaborate themed rooms with gifts crafted by Canadian artists, such as kaleidoscopes, beeswax candles, and soaps.
Bon Echo Provincial Park is home to Mazinaw Rock, a sheer rock face that rises more than a half-mile above the lake with more than 260 native pictographs etched into it. Canoe or kayak to the rock and you can see them up close.
