Picnics or BBQ or put a tent over it for a wedding or large party. 30 mins to the west gate of world-famous Algonquin Park where there are spectacular hikes and sights.

We're just a short distance to one of several golf courses and To 2 nearby lakes to rent a boat if you feel so inclined. It's a short distance to hiking, horse-back riding, zip-lining, river canoeing, steamship rides and much more. AT NIGHT Roast marshmallows around the campfire and Star Gaze— MILLIONS of stars!

The inn also provides Sat INTERNET for those who need to stay connected. BEDROOMS: There are ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms--most are en-suite and only 2 bedrooms share a bathroom—some of them have Jacuzzi tubs. No more standing in line!

In 2021 we have every sort of date available still. SCHEDULE and MINIMUMS: In spring & fall we have a 2-night minimum (3 for long weekends). In summer there is usually a 7-night minimum unless you wish to take weeknights, then a 3-night minimum. In summer we go Mondays to Mondays, so that guests who hold events such as a wedding, don't have to depart the next day.
