FUN FOR ALL AGES
Family focused fun for everyone. From the Play Village to kids’ Extreme Sports, we give children extra attention with special activities geared just for them. We have supervised programs for 5 different age levels, so your kids are never bored or short of fun things to do. They’ll have a blast and make lots of new friends. Of course, we have lots of fun adult activities too from the challenging Vertical Playground to outdoor yoga and SUP. Kick back and relax by the pool or get active – it’s all included.
Childcare on-site included is a HUGE plus.
It’s a great alternative to a cottage weekend. Childcare on-site included is a HUGE plus. Rooms, food and entertainment are okay. Lots of fun activities to do all day. Staff is SUPER friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Overall had a great time, even more than expected.
This place is a gem.
Fantastic experience and well worth the money!
Fantastic experience and well worth the money! Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, horse and cutter rides, snowmobiling, ping pong, billiards, hiking, history tours, ice fishing, beer and wine tasting and the list goes on. Absolutely worth it for a weekend getaway both with or without the kids! The staff is super friendly and very welcoming. Definitely have to go back.
It was our first time here, but won’t be our last
Not many people or many places do that – Disney cruises springs to mind – and Matt at Fern. Nice touch. Thank you again for a great show.
Best Family Holiday
Absolutely one of the best family holidays we have taken. The children were entertained for hours on end, made lots of new friends, and there was plenty for adults to do too (axe throwing, anyone?!). The food offered was a good range to cater for all tastes, with the breakfasts and lunchtime poolside BBQ the highlights. My only criticism here is that the kids’ menu was the same every day, but I realized that if you wanted to ask for something else (e.g. Pasta and cheese), you should just ask and they will accommodate you.
The facilities offer a wide range of activities which you can either do at organized times, or to fit in with your own timings. We did the fishing trip as a paid extra activity and my son loved it.
Enjoyable Getaway, Beautiful Grounds
My husband and I’s first time at Fern Resort. We had a room on a lower floor overlooking the lake. Our room had a fireplace and was a nice size. The balcony/terrace was a nice place to sit and watch the beautiful sunsets. We had 3 meals, all from a menu which allowed for a good choice of meals. Breakfast was excellent with many choices. We visited in the fall after Thanksgiving so the outdoor pool was not available but the trails for walking were lovely and peaceful and not difficult to follow. The Staff were very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and will likely return in the summer.
Staff Made Everything Great
We recently held a corporate dinner at Fern Resort with incredible success. The staff have instituted thoughtful COVID protocols and we felt very safe.
The food, the location and the view were wonderful – but it was really the staff that made everything go so well. Huge thanks to Jennifer Demuth
