Loved it! Very well kept property. It is right on the lake. The highlight of our stay was the heated outdoor pool. It was so nice to relax and enjoy the sun. The manager is great. She was there to assist us at all times. We would come back to Ogopogo.  

 


We spent our vacation at Ogopogo Resort and our only complaint was that we didn`t have longer. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The grounds are well maintained and have something for everyone. The view of Mountain Lake is spectacular and has great fishing. The kids enjoyed the kayaks, paddle boats and canoes as well as the swimming dock. The nightly campfires made it seem like a big extended family. Having new owners that live on site makes all the difference. Thank you Todd and Katherine for making our stay so memorable. We can`t wait to return next year.

The Best Resort Ever in Canada I had a wonderful time at Ogopogo Resort. I stayed a few times with my son. The cottages are very clean and cozy. You have everything you need. I stayed during summer and winter times. Dog sledding was fun too. My son can’t wait for the marshmallows by the fire pit again. We will definitely be back!!!!

 


A Decade of Wonderful Memories at Ogopogo Resort This review may be long, but it only captures a tiny bit of our wonderful history with Ogopogo Resort. We found this resort through the internet in 2001. I thought it looked clean and attractive, and after vacationing the previous year at a cottage resort that was NOT clean, took our chances here. WOW. We spent a week in the summer of 2001 with our two very young children in one of the 8 family cottages at Ogopogo. We loved everything about the cottage experience - because it is small, you meet everyone and quickly make friends (some who last for ten years!). The owners (changed owners three times for us) have all been great. The location (just north of Minden (not Milton, which someone else wrote), is great. The lake is beautiful, and the layout of the resort is spectacular. Real cottage country. The facilities include a dock for boating, a small sand beach which our kids have grown up on, and a heated swimming pool which has seen hours and hours of fun! Very few cottages have a nice clean pool too! In 2001, we loved our week, and quickly decided we would return the following summer, and the rest has been history. We have made 10 annual trips for a week each summer (and one year, we went twice!). we have been blessed to have met many wonderful people, including three or four families that we have returned with again and again. Some we only see at Ogopogo, and some we get to see occasionally outside of the cottage. We even have pen pals from England. They seem to get lots of international visitors each year. Ogopogo has been a key part of our memories that will remain with our children forever. They have literally grown up here. The first owners (Mark and Roberta) were great people, and created the magic of Ogopogo. Mark`s organization and concept (and many of his original signs etc!) are still with Ogopogo. The next owners, Bruce and Carol, are a wonderful, interesting couple who added so much of their talent and hard work to Ogopogo. They introduced the weekly cocktail party in summer, the children`s club, and Bruce`s beautiful screen doors, to name just a couple of the many things they touched. We were heartbroken when they decided to retire in 2007. They are forever implanted in our children`s memories. The current owners (Maya K and family) took the business over and we are so proud of the hard work and energy that Maya has put into making Ogopogo a continuing success. Maya is a lovely person who really cares about her guests and really seemed to understand when we talked to her about why Ogopogo was so important to us and what we wanted to remain for her Guests. The nightly campfires (and the woodpile where so many boys learned to swing an axe), the beautiful dock, the frog pond, the groomed pathways, clean cottages, lovely flower gardens (Carol and Roberta, your legacy lives on!), the peaceful atmosphere, the shuffleboard, the great pool, and one of our favourite things - the big charcoal bbq. My husband has spent hours and hours of his life, standing with other men (whoever was there that week), beer in hand, "grilling" in the summer evenings. The town is only 10-15 minutes (LCBO, groceries, and the year they added a Tim Horton`s was excited for the coffee junkies!). We have never been to Ogopogo outside of summer (although some of our friends have). This year we are excited that in just two weeks we will be having a big fall weekend there - three families who met years ago, different generations, in the same cottages we`ve summered in over the years, all meeting up there for our first fall weekend. We are really looking forward to seeing each other, seeing Maya, and seeing what is new (and what is exactly the same!) at "our" Ogopogo. Who knows, maybe some day we will take our grandchildren there! If you are looking for a wonderful place to make happy memories, this is the right cottage resort for you. ENJOY!

 


Arrived on a beautiful sunny Saturday and we were greeted by new owners Todd & Katherine, who were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful all week long with anything we needed! The cottages were clean, cozy, and equipped with everything. We were there with 3 other families and EVERYONE had a blast! There is something to do for anyone of any age...from Kayaking, canoeing, swimming (in the lake or pool), fishing, shuffleboard, basketball, horseshoes or just reading on the sandy beach...we will miss Ogopogo and cannot wait to go back!
Thank you Todd & Katherine (and your very hard working kids) for a great, memorable vacation!

Rita and Shawn
