A century-old traditional Ontario resort hotel, Viamede Resort, and adjoining Mount Julian Resort, have been Stoney Lake landmarks since 1885. Steeped in history, Viamede Resort sits on 165 acres of choice Kawartha Lakes wilderness. The resort overlooks exclusive Stoney Lake and boasts 2000 feet of shoreline complete with docks, swimming beach and lakefront cottages.
Viamede Resort has a long and storied history. The original building is said to have been built in 1885, although the origins are murky with surveys from 1873 showing a smaller building marked “hotel”. In 1907, this building burned down, and the “new” Viamede Resort was built in its place, featuring modern amenities of electric light and running water.
In late 2010, Viamede Resort was purchased by current Owner and General Manager, Ben Samänn. With a Swiss education in Hotel Management and a family background in the hotel and restaurant industry, Ben was keen to return Viamede Resort to its former glory as the finest resort destination in the Kawarthas. To that end, grand changes, renovations and upgrades have taken place throughout the resort. Systems and services have been vastly improved with a top tier management team focusing on exceptional guest experiences.
