Viamede Resort

We have focused on preserving the historic aspects of the property while adding all the modern amenities that one might expect from one of Ontario’s Finest Inns, Hotels and Spas.

This winter, Viamede Resort (, a full-service Ontario resort and conference centre in the Kawarthas, will complete the final phase of a sweeping multi-million dollar resort restoration and improvement project that has not only returned this Stoney Lake landmark to its former glory but transformed Viamede Resort into one of the top lakefront resorts in Ontario. The renovations that will be completed at Viamede this winter include the expansion of the main lodge, shoreline restoration and the beautification of the resort grounds.

Viamede Resort will be closed for the winter of 2014/2015 while the second phase of renovations is underway. When guests return in the summer of 2015, they will find Viamede completely refurbished with a wide range of exciting new resort amenities, facilities and activities. The main lodge building will be expanded to make way for the addition of a full gym with indoor pool, sauna, change-rooms and yoga studio. A new maintenance building will also be constructed over the winter. Major changes will also take place on the resort’s grounds and waterfront to improve the overall look of the resort and further enhance views for the enjoyment of their guests. Several unneeded buildings will be removed to improve sightlines. Other work scheduled includes the paving of parking lots and burying power lines. Preserving the environment is also a top priority. Extensive work will be done to restore the shoreline, and older septic systems will be replaced.

Over the past few years, Viamede Resort has had an extraordinary transformation. “Viamede has been a landmark destination in the Kawarthas for over a century and was in need of a facelift to keep her looking beautiful for generations to come,” says owner and innkeeper Ben Sämann. “We have focused on preserving the historic aspects of the property while adding all the modern amenities that one might expect from one of Ontario’s Finest Inns, Hotels and Spas. The first phase of our renovation plan was completed last winter. It included widespread improvements to guest rooms and cottages, new furnishings and décor, and changes to the buildings, recreational facilities, dining room, marina and landscaping. We have also embarked on a vigorous training program for our staff to ensure that our valued guests always receive outstanding service. It is our goal to offer our guests the best vacation experience in Ontario,” explains Sämann.
