Accommodations near the Algonquin Eco-Lodge?

We are attending a wedding at the Algonquin Eco Lodge this summer but would like to stay at a bigger lodge or hotel nearby. What would be the closest community or accommodations to the park entrance to the Eco Lodge?

Hi;

According to their website, the closest town is Huntsville, approx. 25 miles / 40 km from the west entrance to Algonquin.

For Huntsville hotels, B&B’s and specialty lodging, have a look here on TA;

Huntsville, eh?? That's surprising. The map I was using made it seem as if Huntsville was a little far.

Okay, there are lots of hotel/resort options there. I'll start checking them out.

Thanks a lot!!!

Hi;

I don’t mean to mislead you, but their information contradicts one another. The site that I gave you states Hunstville, but their map shows that they are located outside the southeast tip of Algonquin Park, close to Bancroft.

http://www.algonquinecolodge.com/maps.html

One part says “deep in the woods of Algonquin Park” but the map shows them as outside of the park.

Perhaps you should call them directly. (800) 776-9453

Best Regards

Hi,

I am the owner of the Eco-Lodge, so am familiar with it's location! We are on the very south east corner of the Park, about 100 metres outside the political boundary, and deep in the woods. We are 2 hours away from Huntsville. The nearest big town is Bancroft or Haliburton (45 minutes), and the nearest village is Maynooth (15 minutes).

Our map on our website is correct, but the location shown on other travel websites is quite often incorrect as they use the biggest airport coordinates. Our exact GPS positioning is given on our website, which links into Google Maps.
