We are open and really looking forward to your arrival!

While we’ve been anticipating reopening with great excitement, a lot of careful preparation has gone into making sure that your stay with us this summer will offer as much as possible of the warm Fern Resort experience that you all look forward to, while ensuring the comfort, safety and wellness of our guests, front-line staff and our community.

To that end, guests and staff are required to follow social distancing guidelines and practice good hygiene, such as frequent hand-washing/sanitizing. If you are feeling sick, please stay home and if you start to feel unwell while staying at Fern, please remain in your room. Please be conscientious of those around and respect the experience of others – a little understanding and hospitality goes a long way to making sure everyone’s experience remains a positive one. We’re all in this together and each of us doing our part will ensure that we all can stay healthy and happy this summer

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Al Fresco!

At this time, the province of Ontario has mandated that restaurant dining is limited to the outdoors. We are working hard to make this the best experience possible for you and your family. To this end, we have erected a large awning outside the Main Inn in order to accommodate Breakfast and Dinner service with assigned seating. Lunch will be served as usual from the BBQ gazebo, with seating on the pool deck. We will be offering meals in the dining room as soon as provincial restrictions permit us to.

Playvillage & Activities Programs

The same great programs available for morning to evening! We have social distancing measures in place.

Entertainment is Here Too!

  • Afternoon Entertainment will take place at the outdoor Amphitheatre.
  • The evening entertainment lineup includes an outdoor Dive-In Movie on the Pool Deck. Stay tuned for additional details.
  • We’ll be lighting bonfires around the resort each night of the week for our guests to enjoy the quintessential summer cottage country experience.
  • At this time, we are not able to offer live entertainment indoors in Bergwen’s Theatre.

Now, more than ever, we understand the importance of getting away from it all and relaxing by the lake. Although your stay at Fern cannot be exactly the same as in previous years, with the vastness of our beautiful lakeside property, fresh air, abundance of facilities and fun activities, we promise to provide you with a safe and much needed Ferntastic vacation.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
