I had the pleasure of organizing a professional development meeting at The Village Inn in Lakefield and would recommend this venue with great enthusiasm. The accommodations were excellent, the food and beverage service was first class and the attention to detail by the staff at The Village Inn was the best I have received in many years of organizing these types of events across Ontario.
