This page is dedicated to some of my favourite places and people. Please consider making a visit.
The Westwind Inn is an all-inclusive vacation resort hotel country inn nestled in the Kawartha Lakes District surrounded by nature. (near Peterborough, Ontario, 90 minutes from Toronto) Our amenities include tastefully decorated rooms with scenic views and prices at competitive rates, casual country dining, manicured lawns with lovely gardens, and 1/4 mile of picturesque lakefront.
In addition, adjacent are 1000’s of acres of Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, crown preserved lands, and breathtaking nature for your relaxation and enjoyment. Plenty of trails to explore and lots of activities you can do. We are closer than Muskoka, are surrounded by natural beauty, and are much less crowded.
We are primarily an adult resort, mostly couples, but singles and seniors love it here also and feel welcome and at home.
