This month as we would have a long weekend, we decided to enjoy a few days in a resort, which was close to Toronto.
As we would take Tadeu, we needed to find a place that was pet friendly, so the options were more restricted, but in the end we find the resort Deerhurst which is excellent, has activities for the whole family and is 2 hours from Toronto, in a town called Huntsville.
The resort has a large hotel and in this the dogs are accepted however it is charged CAD $50.00 (+ fees) for it.
But besides the hotel there are also several buildings with rooms and kitchens scattered around the place. The only point is that these apartments do not accept dogs.
As we were with Tadeu, we stayed at the hotel and we liked very much. Check the prices here.
Activities for the whole family
The Deerhurst is quite complete, has several outdoor activities such as tennis court, Vôley, golf course, basketball court, tree, ATV ride, paintball, many indoor activities such as climbing, arcade, playground and scape room.
In front of the resort there is the Peninsula lake, with this, besides a beach, the site counts a wide choice of aquatic activities such as canoe ride, stand up paddle, speedboat ride, Skywater, toboggan in the lake and others.
For dogs, there are areas where they can walk and the beach is included in these places.
Some of these activities are paid and the availability and variety of them is according to the season of the year. Check all here.
Within the resort there is also a farm that is about 3km from the hotel and there are several activities for adults and children. Find out more here.
And for those who want to relax even more, the resort has a spa that offers several packages of beauty care service such as skin cleaning and manicure, as well as massages. It is worth checking the values on the site.
The resort has a privileged location and is next to the Algoquin Park, a national park where you can make tracks around the place. What I did not know, is that in this park it is possible to find bears, so if you choose to walk there, do not forget to search before all the safety rules and how to behave if you meet an animal.
The resort has no meals included, however, it has 3 restaurants within the hotel and the Antler Steakhouse is close to it. Both have different styles and include children’s menu. You can check the menu options and all the values in the here..
The ride was extremely enjoyable and we are crazy to come back soon and enjoy the place again. We enjoyed the trip and we made a vlog of the 3 days we were there and in this video I share several scenes and rides at the Deerhurst resort.
