After an fantastic drive from Ottawa through the Algonquin National Park we arrived at Colonial Bay Resort on the outskirts of Huntsville. We stayed in one of the four adjoining motel rooms which were a good size with two double beds. On site were a number of chalets for other guests. The resort is on the Peninsula Lake and free...

We had a great few days here. It was so relaxing and felt like our own personal garden and lake. The breakfast baskets were cute. Having use of all the sporting and aquatic equipment was fun. Even though other rooms were taken, it felt private.

This little gem, on Rte. 60 on the way to Algonquin Park, is run by the nicest people ever - Nicolle and Bruce are friendly, accommodating, warm, thoughtful, wonderful hosts. The cabins are very clean and basic -perfect if you are looking for the cottage experience of your youth. We loved the open waterfront and campfire, the lovely people, the... More

Debra, thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. It was wonderful to welcome you back to Colonial Bay again this year. Being close to Kawartha Dairy is great for that mid afternoon or after dinner ice cream run!! Do you think the tubing qualifies to burn off the calories? Bruce & Nicolle More

We came to Colonial Bay for a much needed break from the rigors of city life and found that Colonial Bay was just what we needed. We were welcomed like family by owners Nicolle and Bruce and they felt like family by the time we left 2 days later. The accomodations were perfect and clean, the property was well maintained,...

Mark Thank you for your review and kind comments about your stay at Colonial Bay. Nicolle and I hope all our guests enjoy Colonial Bay the way you did - stress free and low key. Fall colours are amazing and usually peak late in September although it does change each year. Great photography opportunities exist from the dock looking over... More

Lovely place to relax by the lake. It was fun to use all the water equipment. Getting our breakfast in a basket was really cute. Great sleeps. So much space around the cottages to play sports and relax.

We spent 3 days at Colonial Bay for some much-needed time away from the city, and were quite happy we chose this resort. The motel room was very comfortable and suited our needs nicely. The swimming was great, and just sitting in the Adirondacks at the water's edge was enough to wash away the stress of every day life. There... More

We were there this weekend and it was fantastic. Was the first weekend outside the city since we arrived and we feel like in the Paradise. The motel is so good and Natalie and Bruce are amazing people, very kind and friendly. They have canoes, kayaks and bbq for the hostages so it's perfect to have a relax and funny... More

Repeat visitor here. Colonial Bay and its hosts never disappoint. The cabin is clean and has everything you need, including a nice view and a bbq. Tons of property for the children to run. The Howells are friendly hosts. A peaceful, simple family vacation. We'll definitely be back.

We did a fly drive around Ontario for our honeymoon last October and Huntsville was one of our stops. This place is stunning. The view from the lake is amazing. We should have stayed in the motel part of colonial bay but as it was our honeymoon the owner very kindly moved us to a cottage. The cottage was superb,... More

We have just returned from a weekend at Colonial Bay and we loved it! We arrived late on the Friday night and felt bad for turning up after dark, however, we were greeted with a really warm welcome and made to feel right at home! We were sharing a 2 bedroom cottage with our friends and although it was quite... More

Thank you for staying with us and your great review. Somehow the chance to sit on a cottage deck with a view of the lake just captures the soul… Since your visit we have had a company review the internet connectivity problem we were all experiencing and happy to report it is fixed. It turned out to be a software... More
