This is our 3rd year going to Blue Moon. It is always fantastic. The cottage is always clean and ready for the next guest. It is a home away from home. They have everything you need. This is always our winter getaway and its always a great time. Close to the trails for sledding. The kids love the indoor hot...

We were totally impressed with the attention to detail in the Shangri La cottage. My 3 teenagers all said they want to go back in the summer; this was our first trip to Blue Moon but I'm sure not our last.

We just returned from a week at The Maples, our 7th visit. Believe all the positive reviews of Blue Moon Retreat, it's as perfect as it sounds. Beautiful area, privacy, quiet, comfortable and all the amenities. The indoor hot tub and sauna always make our trip extra relaxing. Got to walk across the frozen lake this year, as well as...

Believe every positive review you read about Blue Moon Retreat. We just got back from an amazing weekend in the Sunset. Spacious, clean and cozy with every amenity you could possible need. Our favourite part was the hot tub and sauna! What a luxury! I can't wait to go back in the summer!

We stayed in 'sunset cottage' for the second time in two years and loved every moment. Great view, everything you might possibly need is included, the bed is incredibly comfortable and we loved the quiet surroundings and hiking trail. It's a home away from home. Will definitely be back again!

We came back to Blue Moon this year after having visited it for a weekend last year. We had yet another fantastic weekend. Again not a single thing was out of place and it had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. We stayed in the same cottage as last year, The Maples. We are hoping that Blue Moon Retreat will...

We rented Shangri-la this year and brought up some friends after our amazing weekend at Sunset last year. We were amazed by the value, comfort and amenities last year and this trip was more of the same! We loved the wood fireplace because it rained so we could have a fire inside! The decor is total cottage and the design...

Love the privacy of this cabin! We chose Maples Lodge. This resort was awesome! I have a 4 year old and he loved it too. They literally have everything you need here. The cabins are BEAUTIFUL! Plus the lake isn't busy and you can explore. So much to do and the view is absolutely breath taking! This is indeed the...

My family just returned from a 4 night stay at the High Noon Cottage at Blue Moon Retreat and it was heavenly. The cottage was immaculate and the unobstructed view of the water from the large deck was breathtaking. The cottage literally had everything you needed from linens, pots, pans, dish soap, dishwasher, comfy beds and even a dryer for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate at our small cottage resort on peaceful Purdy Lake which is located between Bancroft and Barry's Bay on the quieter, southeast side of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Our all-inclusive, 'cut-above', resort has 1,500 feet of frontage on a largely undeveloped lake. A pair of loons nest on the island in the centre and their mournful cries are music for the soul. With just 6 housekeeping cottages on 20 acres you will be sharing this slice of the sparsely populated Canadian Algonquin Highlands with only a few other guests and the local wildlife. Many of our guests come for weekend or mid-week getaways during the even quieter fall, winter and spring seasons. ... more   less
