Recently, my wife and I found ourselves stranded without a place to stay due to frozen drain pipes in our home. Residents of the Madawaska Valley, we had driven past the Pinewood Inn many times, and decided to give them a try, and 'move in' while repairs were underway. What a treat! From the very first phone conversation we had... More

I've been hiking in Algonquin Park frequently for 15 years, always staying close to & entering through the West Gate (western side of Algonquin). This past January I decided to explore the east side of the park and stay closer to it. I found the Pinewood Inn on line, found their website to be thorough and booked. My arrival was... More

We needed a place to stay while travelling to beautiful Barry's Bay. We found this hidden gem that offered a very clean room and a comfy bed. They have many of the amenities of a cottage for a tremendous value. With Lake Kamaniskeg in your backyard and Madawaska Mountain Ski hill just up the road, Pinewood Inn is a true... More

My 60 something parents booked a room here while we tried other accomodations. Ever since the visit they can't stop talking about how nice the mattress was, how fresh and cozy the room was. When our portable bbq broke down they allowed us to use their full size one. I must say after seeing how nice their accomodations were, in... More

My husband and I recently had to travel to Barry's Bay for a funeral, and chose to stay at the Pinewood Inn because of it's location and price. On past trips the motel didn't seem like much as we passed by, however we were working with a tight budget, and the price was perfect. We got much more than our... More

We pulled out of Algonquin Park and needed to find a place to spend the night. The Pinewood didn't look like much from the road, but we were weary travellers. Mark was so welcoming and showed us the rooms. Very clean, comfortable, free Wi-Fi. We didn't visit the backyard, but did head up the street for dinner at the Ash... More

We stayed at The Pinewood this past weekend with our two boys aged 5 & 8. The boys were able to spend time in the spacious backyard doing what boys do while we relaxed and enjoyed the incredible weather.

The Pinewood Inn is not fancy but it is clean and offers some unique amenities. The rooms are certainly small but very clean. The WiFi is free.
