A century-old traditional Ontario resort hotel, Viamede Resort, and adjoining Mount Julian, have been Stoney Lake landmarks since 1885. In 2010, the property was purchased by Ben Samann, who has transformed Viamede into… whatever you want it to be. It’s Your Personal Resort.

The Property: With 165 acres of unspoiled wilderness, our extensive facilities are well suited for both relaxation and adventure. We have 9 km of private forest trails, indoor and outdoor pools, a sand beach with a play structure, landscaped gardens, a historic wedding chapel, and a working, on-site farm where our groundskeeper tends our own livestock and raises our own vegetables for Mount Julian, our fine dining restaurant. The jewel of the property is beautiful Stoney Lake, with clean and clear waters, scenic islands, incredible boating and fishing, and fascinating century cottages.

Food and Drink: We have three unique restaurants on site at Viamede. Mount Julian, our fine dining restaurant housed in the original Inn at Mount Julian, showcases incredible gourmet fare with an emphasis on locally sourced, raised, and foraged food. With five, seven or nine-course tasting menus and a cellar full of hand-picked wines, you’ll be in foodie heaven.

The Boathouse is our dockside dining restaurant, drawing guests in for a surprising, local twist on a traditional menu, featuring delicious and hearty homemade classics, and cold craft beer. Open Canada Day to Labour Day.

1885 is where you relax. All day cappuccinos, big fires, and s’mores. Foosball, ping pong, board games, and a kids’ play zone round out your stay on rainy days. It’s also our hub for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the fall, winter and spring.

Pets Welcome: Viamede might be the most pet-friendly resort in Canada. Viamede has a very progressive pet policy that warmly welcomes pets on vacation with their owners. All of our cottages are pet friendly, and we do not charge extra fees for guests who want to enjoy a week or weekend vacation on Stoney Lake accompanied by their four-legged friend. We even have a free package designed exclusively for dogs.

Activities: Fun and relaxation are priorities at Viamede, and all of our activities and equipment are free for our guests. We have canoes, disc golf, human-powered boats, pools, a tennis court, a sporting field, stand-up paddle boards, docks, a water trampoline, 9 km of wilderness trails, bicycles, snowshoeing—you name it. Rather than list everything you can do at Viamede, we’d rather show you.

Conference Facilities: Viamede hosts many group events, and as usual, we do it slightly differently. Simple pricing and access to the whole resort means that your team will be less productive than ever. And you’ll get a lot more done.

Weddings: At Viamede, it’s all about you all weekend. Only one wedding at a time, because this isn’t a golf course. With an on-site heritage chapel and exclusive event bookings, where else can you take your time setting the scene and then simply head to your room when the big event is over?

Maps: want to know the best place to catch sunfish, where to pickup hot dog buns, or find the nearest art gallery? Check out our handy map below! You can turn layers on and off, to focus on wildlife viewing hotspots, shopping, and other interesting features.

We at Viamede Resort value the privacy of all our guests and friends. That’s why in addition to a lock on the door of each guestroom, we have detailed how we use any information we receive.

Oh—and before we go any further—we’ll just let everyone know right off the bat that we comply with current Canadian privacy legislation.

1) What kind of information do we collect?

There are two different types of information that we collect: personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-Personal Information”).

This might sounds complicated but it’s fairly straightforward.

Personal Information

We are a resort and people come visit, book rooms, and enjoy gourmet local food all of the time. As a result of these exchanges, we end up collecting some personal information—which is usually voluntarily given—that includes things like:

We take this information very seriously and only use it to facilitate your stay with us and to keep you in the loop should you wish.

Non-Personal Information

Through your interactions with us, our website and analytics platforms, and through our advertising partners, we may collect information that cannot be used to identify who you are. This type of information that may be collected are things like:

2) How do we collect information?

We collect this information in a few different ways.

When you provide us with information in making a purchase.
Fairly straightforward. You book a room, we receive personal information.

When you sign up to our e-mail list.
If you sign up to receive updates, we end up with a bit of your personal information. With your permission, we send you special information and you can decide to opt out at any point.

When you communicate with us.
When you reach out by e-mail, social media or by hand delivered letter, we may keep those for our records.

Information we automatically collect.
Like most websites, our services may incorporate fancy things like “pixel tags” and “cookies” which allow us to track actions and serve you information about our products and services. All of these collect Non-Personal Information.

3) How is the information used?

4) What about Non-Personal Information?

From time to time, we use third-party advertising companies to serve you ads when you visit our website. They may use Non-Personal Information about your visits to this and other websites to provide ads about goods and services that are of interest to you. If you would like more information about this wizardry or to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies you can look here.

5) What else?

We want to make sure you enjoy your time with us and that your information is protected. Personal Information will only be used or shared when necessary and we would never sell you out by giving your information to third parties without good reason.

Unsurprisingly, we reserve the right to update our privacy policy at any time. When that happens, we will update the effective date at the top of this page so that you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. We hope to see you around soon.
