We had a wonderful Stay at Hay Lake and enjoyed the quitness, peace and the beautiful view for a Week in Cabin No. 2. The Cabin was great. We had everything we needed and we loved the breakfast! It was the perfect location for our Canada-Trip with so much to do (canoeing, swimming, fishing or hiking in Algonquin Park) or... More

A weekend we will never forgot. A quiet beautiful cottage and your own terrace near the Hay lake. Using the canoes, sitting by the fire, hiking in the Algonguin NP and use all the facilities of your own cottage including a gas BBQ! A more than friendly staff and owners, who brought fresh breakfast each morning and were very helpfull.... More

Your enthusiasm made it a pleasure to serve the birthday cake and talk about Algonquin Park's trails. Thank you for your feedback. Trip Advisor reviews are more important than ever.

The next day we were loaned her permit for algonquin park, canoes and life jackets available for use and the views where... More

Thank you so much for taking the chance to give us some feedback on your stay. I must say Charlie the chipmunk has not found as good a friend :). It was so much fun sharing Hay Lake and Algonquin with you and your family. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that someday you can join us again. More

On our first visit to Canada (coming from Germany) we came to this nice place. We had a cabin with a great view of the lake and it is very quiet around this place. We had good breakfasts and dinners, each delivered directly to the cabin. Canoes are available to make your own excursions on the lake. Should we be... More

We have visited Hay Lake Lodge for 5 years - and we look forward to going back every year. The family that runs it always makes you feel welcome. The facilities are always clean and we enjoy spending time in the lodge playing games when it is rainy or canoeing/kayaking on the beautiful lake. The kids also have fun catching... More

My husband and I ended up at Hay Lake Lodge in the Fall of 1995 because all accommodations were booked full in Algonquin Park. We fell in love with it and have come back every year since then. The setting is the best in the area, the cabins are comfortable and consistently clean. Erin and her staff are gracious and... More

What a lovely way to describe Hay Lake. I especially like your phrase "cabin-service evening meals" since really, it's not room service :). It has been a pleasure to host you each time over the years, and I'm glad to see the feeling appears mutual. Thank you for adding your review to Trip Advisor. It's one of our most important... More

Lovely place. Great and friendly service. Privacy with a personal touch. Beautiful lake -- marshes, rocky shore, islands, partly in Algonquin Park. Terrific breakfasts. Interesting other guests. Good canoeing and fishing. My wife and I have vacationed here repeatedly.

Thank you for adding your feedback on Trip Advisor. When you first started coming, I"m not sure Trip Advisor had even started! The customer reviews though really make a difference. You are so right about our wonderful lake - there is so much to explore. I think the Fire Pit on the deck has been a place for interesting conversation... More

Hay Lake Lodge and the surrounding grounds are one of the most relaxing and beautiful places I've visited. The hospitality of Erin and her team is incredible. She takes great care and attention to ensure that guests enjoy every minute of their time there. She also helpfully arranged kayak lessons (offered by the lodge) and horse riding tours for us....
