Tweed is well known for its many tourist attractions and activities enjoyed YEAR ROUND by thousands of visitors. Lakeside Holidays is centrally located in this picturesque village by the lake a short walk (or you can ride our fleet of cycles) to the fine stores or restaurants. Tweed is the Gateway to the Land O'Lakes, a well-known Central Ontario Highlands tourist area with many interesting things to do and places to see. Check it out and decide what type of get-away you prefer while making LAKESIDE HOLIDAYS your home away from home. Imagine a wine tour B & B weekend where you check in Friday and compile your custom tour from more than 2 dozen wineries, then have breakfast and head off to sample wines at 4 or 5 vineyards Saturday. Come back Saturday night and sample your purchases / compare notes out on the patio, in the hot tub or in the Home Theatre (we will get out some cheese and crackers). Sunday we will feed you another breakfast and you can enjoy our place the rest of the day, or squeeze in a few more wineries on your way home.
