Loved this place - the accommodation was rustic & that was absolutely in keeping with staying in a lodge in this beautiful park. Matt who drove us to and from Toronto was lovely, as was the other Matt who acted as our main guide. Both of them were knowledgeable, good fun and made our stay very enjoyable. The food was... More

It was so funny when my kids pulled their luggage in front of the small log 4 person cot filled 1 light cabin. I had such a laugh. They thought we were staying in a hotel. Once the shock was over they adjusted. They have gone camping many times but just thought we were going to have some luxury. The... More

More food and warmth than anyone could possibly want. We signed up for a weekend of dogsledding, snow-shoeing and cross country skiing. The guides spoiled us (really, actually to an embarrassing degree--they did everything for us), and gave us great advice. They were knowledgeable and passionate about the park. We left feeling ready to do more exploring on our own.... More

We were looking for a slightly different holiday with our two teenagers, without having to fly anywhere. This worked out for us in so many ways: the fabulous food, the good company of other families, the attentiveness of the guides, and the physical activity (not just sitting around a pool eating and drinking). We arrived at 12:30 (you really do... More

Wonderful lakeside cabins . Recommend getting up to see the sunrise . The sauna in the lake is amazing! The owner was really helpful with renting us other types of boating . Its a thirty minute canoe into the beautiful algonquin national park.

My husband and I spent 5 days at the island ‘retreat' in the first week of September. What a special place this is - 5 days of utter relaxation and invigorating, inspiring to be there without the distractions of 21st century living - cut off from the world, with the only sounds being the lapping of the waters, the breeze...

We did the 3 day/2 night log cabin package in August, had a great time and would recommend it if you're looking for a taste of Algonquin without being too "hard core". Although we had a very wet day and were disappointed not to see moose and beaver (apparently the best chance for moose is May/June) this didn't spoil our... More

Our family of 4 did the 5 day, 4 night canoe safari with two nights in tents and 2 nights in a log cabin. Due to our itinerary, we had to do the lodge first then camping, which wasn't the normal way of it, but as we arrived in pouring rain, we thought we'd planned well. The lodge was absolutely... More

I also attended the Moose Photography Workshop with Pro Photographer Rob Stimpson. This was an extremely well run outing. This was a 2 night, 3 day package. Night one was staying in the cabin and night two was at a campsite. The cabin is an amazing place to stay. What was most noticeable for me was how it was built... More

We were married at Voyageur Quest on May 3. We hosted 12 people for the weekend as well and everyone had an incredible time. The accommodations are comfy and cozy, the food is awesome, the staff friendly and helpful, and John made us feel relaxed and content and well taken care of so we could enjoy our buddymoon. The floating... More
