Very quiet, clean and serene. Everyone was super friendly, courteous and made sure I had everything I needed. Would love to see the Motel's grounds in the summer and the arrival of the swans. Highly recommend!
The location was beautiful. This motel is situated on Lake MacCarthy. All the rooms have a view of the lake with an outdoor porch and chairs. The owners went above and beyond expectations. With restrictions from covid-19, they still managed to make us feel welcome. We needed more Keurig coffee pods, and they were quite happy to provide them. We even got Dutch crepes for breakfast on Mother's Day morning!
During these times of covid-19, stipulations dictated that we could not use the canoes or bikes. However, the owners did the best with what they had. Thanks!
Out of the way location. Woods! The lake. The room was nicely decorated, warm and comfortable. Hot water in the spotless bathroom was immediate and plentiful.
Can't really think of anything.
No Time for breakfast. Very friendly staff, very nice setting and really like to clean rustic room.
Bed was a little firm for me but others may fine it perfectly fine.
As always this motel is a cut above the rest.

The property is within easy reach of all that Canada’s Stratford on Avon has to offer, including the local Shakespeare Festival, but in a secluded, wooded setting that helps visitors get away from it all. Avon Theater, Chocolate Barr’s, and Rheo Thompson Candies are also nearby.
The Forest Motel & Woodland Retreat offers just 19 rooms, all of which are decorated with rest and relaxation in mind. Guests can choose the King Single, the McCarthy House, the Queen Suite with a kitchenette, or rooms that feature two doubles beds, a single queen bed, and from other options. All rooms offer modern amenities, including climate control, a flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, private baths, and more. Housekeeping is available daily.
The property itself offers access to a very wide range of amenities on a seasonal basis. These include the ability to explore the hotel’s 32 acres of forest, canoeing on the lake, fishing, kayaking, bike rentals, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, paddle boat use, and campfire cooking to name just a few. The resort does provide a complimentary continental breakfast, as well.

Keystone Alley is the same distance, and serves French fare. Pizza Bistro is 2.6 miles from the hotel, and Sirkel Foods is the same distance, and provides American fare.
