What a wonderful stay at Hay Lake Lodge. My wife and I had a great time... relaxing, quiet, peaceful. The setting was beautiful and the view of the lake breathtaking. Breakfast each morning was super as well. The environment reminded us of our 20+ years with our own cottage. For us, it brought back great memories. Erin and her crew... More

Thank you for adding your review. More and more of my guests tell me Trip Advisor is a big part of their selection, so your words make a big difference! I'm glad you enjoyed Cabin 2. I love the pine panelling and the cozy screened porch. Of course I think Hay Lake is the perfect place to bring a kayak... More

Haylake Lodge was a great quiet getaway up North. We spent a lot of time searching for a place to go, and finally settled on Haylake Lodge. The Lodge is on a quiet and beautiful lake. The cabins themselves are meticulously maintained and spotless. There is lots to do, whether relaxing outside your own cabin or going out on the... More

Gee thanks! It is so satisfying when a guest "gets" what Hay Lake is about. The two of you seemed to relax the minute you walked toward the cabin. I'm glad you liked Cabin 5 - you noticed that all the cabins are quiet, but we give a special name to 5 and 6 because they have that extra degree... More

My husband and I and our teenage son are touring Canada and have just spent two nights at Hay Lake Lodge after a hectic week in Toronto. It was wonderful to enjoy some peace and quiet in such a beautiful location, yet only a 15 mins drive from Algonquin Park. Erin responded promptly to our emails and everyone was very... More

How nice of you to take time on your travels to send us a review. It was a short stay, but we were glad you could join us. I do think you made use of every minute! I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast, and found Cabin 4 to your liking. Traveling means lots of planning and being pleased with your... More

My family spent a few days at HLL in early July. It was an amazingly relaxing and restful place to stay. We stayed in two different cabins (as we were picking up our daughter from camp) and each was wonderful. Cabin #2 is perfect for a couple while Cabin #6 is good as it has a loft and can accommodate... More

Thank you so much for sharing your impressions - your willingness to move cabins meant you did get to know us better! The pleasure on your faces when I checked you into your cabin was a reward in itself. It sounds like your daughter is ready to carry on the camp tradition, so I'll hope to see you all next... More

Needed a quiet vacation and was impressed by the friendly staff and owner. The setting is very beautiful. The breakfast every morning is excellent -including freshly baked muffins. A wonderful place and an experience we would like to repeat. JF & DC

My wife and I spent two nights at the Hay Lake Lodge during our recent trip to Canada. It’s a different experience as you are very isolated since you have your own cabin. You tell them what time you want breakfast at the main lodge, and it is placed on a table in your screened in porch. So literally, you... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Lodge. I have always been grateful that the bugs subside after June - they are the reason for the screened porches! I'm glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet. I hope you'll join us another time - the fall colours are amazing ( and no June bugs:) More

It was a much needed time of relaxation and we arrived in just a location that facilitated this need. Erin accommodated our early check-in and we appreciated her prompt reply to emails. Erin was very friendly and easy to talk to and a wealth of information with her 30+ years of experience in the business. The staffs were accommodating and... More

Thanks for your revue Chris. It's always great to start a holiday as quickly as possible, so even if the cabin hadn't been ready early you would have been welcome to start the kayaking - I agree, one of the best parts of Hay Lake! We appreciated your sense of humour! Come back when you're ready for more quiet and... More

Hay Lake Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. We stayed in Cabin #6, which was very clean, quite private and perfect for the two of us. The screened in porch was great to eat our breakfast in and I spent a lot of time reading in the chairs on the edge of the amazing lake in front of our... More

A very nice lodge with nice cabins at the lake front! We visited Hay lake in August 2010. First, we occupied a small cabin, later on a large one. It is all very clean and we really looked forward to each breakfast that was dropped silently at our porch each morning. In the evening we enjoyed the magical sound of... More
