Port Carling, Ontario (PRWEB) March 17, 2008
The owners at Crestwood Inn have enhanced the property to entice a niche market looking for reasonably priced, superior Muskoka accommodations. Though it may not seem like it on this cold day in March, spring is just around the corner. In Muskoka, a popular tourist region in Central Ontario, a long time Port Carling business has been undergoing a serious facelift and revitalization. Crestwood Inn (http://www.crestwoodinn.ca) has seen quite a few changes over the past year under the new management of Bob and Susie Kos. With 40 years in the hospitality business, Bob and Susie know a few things about what their customers want and how to run a successful inn. They have thrown all of their efforts into changing the Crestwood Inn into one of the areas "Little Gems" and a home away from home for their guests.
Long regarded as an unspoiled and beautiful wilderness area, sportsman's playground, and boater's paradise, the Muskoka region developed a reputation as a place to go for a luxury vacation with superior accommodations, fine dining, and upscale amenities. However, over the last several years a new trend has developed in the Ontario resort industry; the small sized inns and resort properties that once dominated the vacation resort industry in Ontario are slowly disappearing. These inns and cottage resorts were often quite rustic with few luxuries and appealed strictly to families looking for an inexpensive vacation.
As well, many long established cottage resorts have shut down. Some have been demolished making way for the construction of high-end resorts, large-scale commercial developments, and even new private waterfront homes. On the other hand, some cottage resorts have been upgraded and then marketed and sold as interval ownership timeshare-style properties. In short, there are far fewer affordable Muskoka accommodation properties available for the many vacationers who are looking for a Muskoka vacation experience that includes high-quality lodgings with all the modern conveniences and amenities at a reasonable price.
The Muskoka area is saturated with large luxury resorts, as well as very expensive private cottage properties. The problem is that not everyone can afford to stay in these high price properties or purchase a private cottage. This is why it is so nice to see the changes taking place at Crestwood Inn. The owners of Crestwood Inn understand that there is a huge market for reasonably priced, superior Muskoka accommodations, and Crestwood Inn is filling this niche in the market.
"We will continue to upgrade and make improvements here at Crestwood Inn until it is the cleanest, quietest accommodation property in Muskoka. We want to ensure that all of our guests have a most enjoyable stay with us, and I think we have achieved just the right balance at Crestwood Inn by offering our customers a variety of better-quality accommodations, set in a wonderful Muskoka location, all at an attractive price," states Susie Kos.
By combining all the right ingredients, the owners of Crestwood Inn have come up with the right product to entice today's discriminating traveller who is looking for an enjoyable, yet affordable Muskoka resort vacation in the beautiful village of Port Carling.
Whether you're visiting Port Carling for a Muskoka family vacation, a wedding, a weekend of golf, snowmobiling, or antiquing, or even if you are in need of longer-term accommodations, Crestwood Inn provides very clean and quiet accommodations.
