Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from The Ashwood Inn — one of our featured attractions from Huron County, Ontario — to learn about what they have to offer.
What makes the Ashwood Inn awesome?
The Ashwood: We love showing guests what Ontario’s West Coast has to offer!
The Ashwood Inn has 22 newly renovated guest rooms as well as 14 lakefront housekeeping cottages. We have an indoor salt water pool, access to our sister properties beautiful private sandy beach with a front row seat to the famous Lake Huron sunsets. The historic Village of Bayfield offers many charming shops and restaurants as well as nearby activities include hiking, stand up paddle boarding, wake boarding, craft brewery tours, live theatre, as well as several golf courses to choose from.
After the majestic Ash trees on our property had to be taken down due to the Emerald Ash Borer we decided to incorporate them into the Inn with the help of local designers and artisans making our front desk and live-edge ash bar local attractions on their own.
Our on-site restaurant and Bourbon Bar is definitely worth a visit as it hosts one of the largest Bourbon collections in Canada along with a delicious, ever-changing menu and gorgeous outdoor patio.
