My husband and I chose this resort to celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary which already created a rather high expectation of course. And in this case too high. Having read the reviews what we thought we were getting and reality were 2 different things. That being said, let's be clear - everyone has different expectations and what works for one... More

Thank you for your review and congratulations on 15 married years, a true accomplishment. I think your review saying we are average is generally good in the art of criticism of which I can take some of it to make the Lodge better. Unfortunately, from my experience in helping customers at tourism resorts and lodges and restaurants for the last... More

Friendly hosts, great ambiance but mouse droppings in closet, sticky spills from previous guests not cleaned off floor of cabin, stale urine at side of toilet. Gritty floors, dusty surfaces in room and dining room. Unfortunately host "white" jacket at breakfast and dinner badly stained. No wifi. No satellite TV as stated in brochure.

Thank you for your review. Since your stay I have had meetings with Ken to come up with solutions to make all the cabins clean, as it seems he misses some of them. We have just recently had a previous guest stay with us and commend us on the new proper cleaning, a guest who like you was not happy... More

We were early in the season. For my wifes birthday. Everything was great. Good food, nice hosts. We got a free pass to Algonquin park and hiked all day. Lovely fireplace. The chef is a good guy. Neighbours were quiet.

Thank you for your review. Wonderful to hear that there is so much to do here that 2 days is not enough. This time of the year in April, May and the first half of June we just find that there is not enough guests coming around and it is better for the company to actually be closed where we... More

We just spent the last two nights at Adventure Lodge. Appreciated the excellent dinners prepared by Ken. Stayed in a cabin (Cuba) which was far too small for the King bed, oversized fireplace and full couch. In fact, we had to rearrange the furniture in order to get to the bed. However, we could have forgiven the setup and the... More

We stayed at Adventure Lodge mid- week in early January 2015. We opted for the "Tobago" and were generally pleased. Though the cabin could have used some sprucing up, it was overall well-appointed and welcoming. The guest hosts were fantastic; informative, accommodating and very willing to help make sure your stay is memorable. The food was fine to good, and... More

Thank you for your review. Sounds like good value won the day and I am glad Ken could make you a perfect steak. Great to hear you could visit us over at Couples for a lunch. I hope in the coming years we can even offer free lunch time live entertainment while you have lunch at Couples. Sorry that we... More

I visited the Adventure Lodge with a friend, and we had an amazing stay. The lodges are comfortable with a giant bed, which gave us more than enough space each, a wood fire stove, sofa, fridge, kettle and drip coffee machine. The meals that are included are huge and incredibly tasty - we didn't even need to eat during our... More

Thank you for your review. It is great that you see what we see and that there is fantastic value here. If we can ever find a wifi provider that can provide a proper solution for 9 isolated cabins we will be all over it. Thanks. More

We just returned after a 3-night stay with our dog. Food was great, scenery stunning, fireplace burned perfectly with an abundance of wood, jacuzzi nice but felt guilty using so much water, king bed very comfortable, liked bringing our own wine, proximity to beautiful Algonquin Park an outstanding bonus, Ken and Penny very accommodating. Couple of negatives, cabin, especially bathroom,... More

We have stayed here a couple times now and absolutely love it. The cabins are wooden,well appointed, with plush pillow-top mattresses, fireplaces(wood supplied), hot-tubs for two, fridges etc. In summer, there are kayaks and bicycles. Winter is great for cross country skiing. Meals are wonderful and included. The "Moose Team" aim to please. Would be great honeymoon or wedding backdrop.... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this wonderful lodge. Ken and Penny were wonderful hosts, the cabin (Bahamas) was perfect - comfortable large bed, cozy fireplace and clean bathroom. Ken made some great dishes for breakfast and dinner! We have told friends and family about our nice stay and will for sure be returning.
