Ramada Jacksons Point is an enchanting property on the shores of Lake Simcoe, only about an hour’s drive from Toronto. It’s a wonderful little romantic getaway for couples, and I’d imagine that it would also be a fantastic getaway for families and friends, too.

It has all the makings of a memorable holiday: bright and spacious rooms, a lovely restaurant and patio, glorious views, and activities on the lake. In fact, we didn’t end up leaving the property throughout our entire stay as we had everything we needed right there.
Staying at the Ramada Jacksons Point
Justin and I arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon. Checking in for our stay was a breeze. The hotel staff members are very attentive and friendly, and they will be able to assist you with anything that you need. The hotel lobby is bright and colorful. There’s also a little wall with snacks and a fridge with cold drinks in case you’d like to purchase any to take to your room.
Our Room: Lake Side One Bedroom King Suite
The two of us stayed in the main building at the Ramada Jacksons Point on the second floor, just up the main staircase near the front lobby. We stayed in room #214 that faced out towards the parking lot and the waterfront. Our room had a large balcony with fantastic views. We caught our first glimpses of the lake right from our balcony, and it’s such a beautiful sight to behold. Later that evening, Justin and I savored glasses of wine from our balcony at dusk, as the sky lit up in brilliant shades of pink and purple.
Our suite at the hotel felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. There’s a large living space with a couch, a flatscreen TV, a desk and chair, and a mini fridge. Attached to the living room, there’s a kitchenette with a sink and a Keurig coffee maker (that comes with Keurig pods).
The king bed is within its own separate bedroom that comes with another flatscreen TV and mini fridge. The bed and pillows are so comfortable and relaxing, and we had a great night’s sleep. The bathroom is huge and it features a bathtub and shower, as well as some complimentary toiletries.
We loved that our hotel room had fridges, a sink, a Keurig coffee maker, and two televisions with premium cable channels. There’s also air conditioning and heating, perfect for those hot summer days and chilly winter stays. There’s also complimentary Wi-Fi, a complimentary breakfast, and free parking.
This hotel has its own indoor saltwater pool, hot tub, and sauna. There’s also a fitness center with cardio machines and weight machines. On summer weekends, you can book a sunrise yoga session at the lake, which is open to hotel guests and the public ($15 per person, pay at the front desk).
Restaurant at the Ramada Jacksons Point
Justin and I had dinner at the Lakeview Restaurant & Bar. You can dine inside the restaurant or outdoors on the patio for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We loved the quiet atmosphere and the magical lake views from the patio. Our server was very helpful and friendly, and we had a great experience dining there.
In terms of the vegan options on the menu, I was grateful to have a couple of different choices: an Asian stir fry, penne pomodoro, penne primavera, and a green salad with balsamic dressing. I ordered the penne pomodoro and green salad, which wasn’t terribly innovative, but it was yummy and hit the spot. I would have ordered the Asian stir fry if there was a veg protein as an option to go with the veggies (like tofu).
Relaxing at the Property
Justin and I used our time at the hotel to rest, relax, and unwind. We didn’t leave the property at all throughout our stay as it had everything we needed right there. Primarily, we spent some time out on the dock and enjoyed the scenery from two red Muskoka chairs on the lawn.
Water Sports and Rentals
There is a private company that operates from the waterfront at the Ramada Jacksons Point. You can arrange to rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards from them. Please inquire at the front desk if you’d like to do this. It’s also possible to go swimming at the lake, too. Originally, we were thinking about participating in some water sports, but it kept raining on and off throughout our visit so we opted out this time around.
The GLO Spa at Ramada Jacksons Point
Why not treat yourself to a spa getaway? Pamper yourself at the GLO Spa at one of the top spa retreat resorts on Lake Simcoe. Get massages, facials, waxing, manicures & pedicures, and many more spa treatments or packages. While we didn’t indulge at the spa this time around, it’s one reason why we’d love to return to this resort in the future.
More Things to Do in Georgina
If you feel like exploring the region, there are lots of things to do in Georgina. Staying at a resort on Lake Simcoe is the perfect home base for outdoor adventures in the area. For instance, you can spend the day at Sibbald Point Provincial Park where you’ll find a beautiful sandy beach and hiking trails.
There are three public beaches within a 10 minute drive of Ramada Jacksons Point: Franklin Beach, Willow Beach, and Filey Beach. There are also lots of walking, hiking, and cycling trails in the area, both by the lake and through the forest.
In addition, both Jacksons Point and Georgina have charming small town vibes with cute shops. You’re not far from Sutton, Keswick, Georgina Island, Mount Albert and East Gwillimbury for more activities like golfing and hiking.
Book your stay at the Ramada Jacksons Points for a brilliant little getaway that will make you feel like you’re truly on a relaxing vacation.

Justin and I love overnight stays that are within an hour or two from our home in the GTA. It’s always nice to plan little romantic getaways and short vacations between our lengthier overseas trips. We also love exploring more of our province because there’s truly so much to see in Ontario, Canada.
