Blue Moon Retreat has something for everyone!! (Really) We come each year and stay in the various cottages based on who and how many people with us. This trip was a "kids cousin" week. The children loved playing outside at the tennis court and who doesn't LOVE the water toys and kayaks?!! We would end our fun days with either... More

We stayed in Island View. Its best features are that its pet friendly, it's private, the deck with large gas bbq was immense and fully enclosed and great for our pooch, it's perched on a hill with a gorgeous view and the very well stocked kitchen. It felt like a private cottage. There are a variety of cottages here at... More

I love BMR cottages. I've stayed at the the Sunset with my husband as well as the Chalet once with him and the last two times with a bunch of girlfriends and our kids. Each experience has been outstanding. The last two, in particular were great. The Chalet was fully set up with a highchair and tons of toys for... More

We've stayed at Blue Moon annually for many years but this is our first time at the Shangri-La (we usually stay at the Maples or High Noon.) Absolutely stunning! Blew us away, like a gorgeous mansion in the woods, totally private, incredible views of the lake (which we snowshoed across, as it was frozen), wood-burning fireplace with a huge stone... More

We just spent family day weekend at Blue Moon Retreat - Sunset cabin, Not only was the cabin beautiful, it was immaculate. The fact Blue Moon is pet friendly made it that much more attractive to us. Little did we know we wouldn't want to leave. It was so peaceful and relaxing with all the amenities you could want and... More

The chalet is also awesome but shangri la has more room, more beds, and an extra fridge. The view of these lake is stunning in hyena winter when everything is covered in snow. Kitchen... More

We had a fantastic weekend at the Shangri La for my birthday! The staff even provided a bottle of wine as a birthday gift. This was my 5th time visiting Blue Moon Retreat, but my first time staying at Shangri La. The cottage is immaculately kept and has amazing amenities to keep everyone entertained for days on end.

Hi My husband and I stayed in the Maples Lodge Cabin celebrating our quiet honeymoon from Oct 21 - 25 2013. So nice to arrive and find a bottle of wine, and a card to celebrate the occasion from them! We were very pleased with everything. We loved the cottage with it's wifi, satellite TV, 2 bedrooms, gas woodstove, BBQ,... More

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
