#SummerAtFern 2017

Our summers cannot be complete without our annual trip to The Fern Resort in Orillia, Ontario!!  The boys have been looking forward to this trip ALL YEAR and Fern did not disappoint!

First off, we LOVE how close to home Fern is for us.  Just a short 1 hour drive and we are at the doorstep of the stunning lake and resort.   Parking is so conveniently located central to the accommodation buildings, so you will be enjoying your vaycay very quickly on arrival.  Remember that check in is at 4pm but sometimes rooms are available sooner.  We called on route to let them know we were on our way and to see if we could get our room a little sooner which they were gracious in accommodating.

The BEST part of Fern is BY FAR the CHILDCARE available.  My boys (ages 7 and 4) just LOVE going to "kids club".   If they could stay in there all day they probably would, but it does close from 12-1:00 for lunch :)   From the sand pit, to the splash pad, trampoline, crafts and more the childcare options are Fern are second to none.  The amazing staff were experienced and competent in dealing with my autistic child.    They were attentive to his needs and I felt confident that they could handle whatever came up OR that I was just a phone call away if needed.

The FOOD at Fern never disappoints!   We opt to take the kids to the convenient  5:30 kids buffet and then send them to kids club so that we can enjoy a quiet adult meal :)      The famous Fern honey dinner rolls and coffee are my go-to's and likely the most famous items on the Fern menu!   Be sure to try them out!

At Fern, you will NEVER be bored.  There are TONS of activities for the ENTIRE FAMILY and for ANY WEATHER condition.  It truly is a YEAR ROUND resort.   My boys especially love the pool and the giant chess board.   Morning shuffle board tournament anyone?

Business Meeting??   The team at Life With A Baby LOVES the convenient conference facilities that Fern offers.   They conveniently placed our rooms in the same building as our conference room space (The Mara Room) so that we could be close to our families and things if needed.  The meeting rooms come equipped with all your modern day meeting amenities such as drinks, power, TV, coffee, etc.

Tips:  bring your own life jackets or puddle jumpers for the kids at the pool!

All in all, if you're looking for a fun and relaxing place to take the family close to home, Fern is the place to check out!  Consider the fact that included in the price is your accommodations, 3 meals, entertainment, childcare, programming and activities.   Get ready to enjoy your #SummerAtFern

    When we were in the pool, we watched the lifeguards hand out puddle jumpers - I wonder if they only have a few or only certain staff can access them? It is worth asking if someone forgets theirs! We had our own, and my daughter learned to swim independently this weekend!!
