Plan your weekend getaway at Fern Resort #nocottagenoproblem #ontariosallinclusive

We kicked off our weekend at Fern Resort and it was the perfect start to our annual family vacation.  Fern Resort to me means, family.  As you’ll look around you’ll see generations of families there having a wonderful time and that’s something to admire.   No passports are needed for you to travel to this all-inclusive, that’s just a short drive from Toronto!
No cottage? No problem, just book your weekend and enjoy all the summer weekends at Fern.  You know, it has everything from my past reviews on Fern.  We were blown away from our first time at Fern and our second time.  It seems that every year gets better and I am so sentimental when it comes to visiting Fern. It’s where memories are made.  From planned activities that you can take part in such as Yoga in the morning and the fitness facilities after you’ve enjoyed a lovely breakfast and have sent the kids off to a super fun day at the Fern supervised Day camps.  Why not lounge by the pool, play a round of golf, pick the kids up for a buffet BBQ on the patio, drop the kids off again for Afternoon camp and pick them up again at dinner and hear all about their day as you’ve had some serious time to relax by the pool, lake, your room or wherever as Fern has everything for everyone, every age group.

Fern Resort brought us a few firsts this year too.  First-time diving off the board, first time on a pony, first time going down the water slide, first time zip lining, first time fishing, so many memories have been made at Fern and that’s one of the many reasons we love it there.  They just do it right and this has been our third year. The Penthouse suite was PERFECT for our family of 5.  We were facing the pools, it also had a great view of Lake Couchiching and located in the Main Lodge. We had 2 Queen size beds, the 2 couches pulled out into beds and I can’t stress how perfect it was.  This has been our favourite room so far at Fern Resort. I love the renovations they did in the Main Lodge.


At FernResort, the best of Ontario’s cottage country is included. Discover new challenges, explore nature, join one of our many activities or just hang around in a hammock and soak up the beautiful scenery. 
So now that you’ve seen our suite let me show you what we were up to:


FamilyMeal_FernResortThe only way I get us to eat all together is at Fern and the food to me seems to get better every year. It’s all included in your stay.  The hallmark of any stay at Fern Resort is the dining experience — fabulous food served in a comfortable and family-friendly atmosphere.

FernResort_FishingThe twins really took to fishing this year.

FernSwingsThe beach area is a great place to sit and relax.

00100dPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20190706113930796_COVERPony rides at the Play Village!  All included in your stay, no additional costs! Family-focused fun for everyone. From the Play Village to kids’ Extreme Sports, Fern Resort gives children extra attention with special activities geared just for them. They have supervised programs for 5 different age levels, so your kids are never bored or short of fun things to do.



 And end it with nighttime activities at Maryl Lou’s.  We had so much fun with Karaoke and Fern Jeopardy! Come see my Instastories.

We managed to pack a lot in for just two short days!  But kicking our vacation with a start at Fern Resort has been the best.  Follow Fern Resort on social media as they have some exciting promo’s going on and with fellow Influencers and Bloggers. I hope you’ll plan a weekend getaway.  It is the best way to spend a weekend and it’s actually more cost-effective to stay for the weekend, than during the week!  Just a little tip I was told 😉

    How much would you say it costs for your suite for the weekend?

    • Mama Ash | 26th Jul 19

      It was around $2000, a beautiful Penthouse suite, see my Instastories for the tour. Food and all the activities and care for the kids. It’s worth every penny. I hope you’ll go!
