  • A 20-minute picturesque drive from Gravenhurst led us to Johnson's Cranberry Marsh. We first saw the ice trail by the woods and quite a few people started putting on skates. It looked like a lot of...  more »

  • A picturesque cranberry farm. We went during the cranberry plunge and it definitely is the best time to go. The cranberry plunge is a photo worthy activity (be prepared to wait in line) and thoroughly enjoyed it. They have a wagon ride which takes you around the farm. Also a great place to see the fall colors!!
  • I'm extremely disappointed by the service and attitude my parents and I received here today. We popped by for a wine tasting and to purchase some local goods from the store. The two women who were at the bar pouring the wine tastings were incredibly rude to my mother and I. They answered our questions in a clipped, rude tone and were shouting at the other customers, brusque, and unpleasant. I have never been treated so poorly before. Even though the wines tasted great, we left with a sour taste in our mouth because of how we were treated. As if it couldn't get any worse – when we decided to purchase some wine, candles, and sauce from the store, my card wouldn't go through because the machine was broken. The cashier kept saying it was mine and my card's fault, making me feel embarrassed as the line kept growing behind me. After multiple tries, she finally let me try another cashier's machine right away, and surprise surprise, my card went through. Although I'm sure the farm, trails, and experience would have been nice, the service put us off completely. Prepare yourself to be herded like cattle and treated inhumanely. Have low expectations.
