“Beautiful Bed and Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My husand and I stayed in this beautiful bed and breakfast for two nights in July 2013, it was absolutely amazing, everything is spotless, looks brand new. We stayed in the forest view suite, where you have your own private entrance, with a adorable patio and chairs to sit out on and look into the forest! It had a huge bed, livingroom, fireplace, a litte kitchenette, and a nice soaking bath tub! The hosts gail and jim were very friendly, and we enjoyed seeing their friendly dog. It is located about 10 minutes from huntsville, where we spent alot of our time in the cute town, and 10 minutes from dwight, where there is a beautiful beach. It is tucked away, and you can hear the sounds of birds, so peaceful. I would highly recommend this place. I was able to see the other two rooms, which are located inside the house, they are also very nice, my first choice would be the forest view suite forsure!!!

Room Tip: Although all of the three rooms are very lovely, I would recommend the forest view suite, it has it...

I have stayed already various times at the Algonquin Mists, it is a wonderful place year round. Gail and Jim are the best hosts you can imagine, the rooms are cozy and clean, and the breakfast is oustanding. The warm atmosphere makes you feel at home immediately, and the peaceful surroundings guarantee that you will have a relaxing stay. I am sure I will be back soon.

We have stayed at Algonquin Mists a number of times since it opened. All the rooms are spacious and nicely done. On our most recent stay in September we stayed in their newest addition the Forest View Bachelour Suite it was so nice to wake up at our leisure to a self-serve luxury breakfast on the patio overlooking the forest. We loved the privacy of this newest suite, like your own little cottage in the woods. Another peaceful time at the MIsts! Thanks Jim and Gail for being great hosts.

Room Tip: Forest View Bachelor Suite very privat with own entrance

After selling our cottage in Muskoka we wanted a vacation place to go to near Algonquin Park. Algonquin Mists was a perfect choice. All the suites are spacious but our favourite is the Forest View Bachelor Suite with its private entrance, patio and breakfast bar with mini - kitchenette ideal for our extended stays. Gail and Jim are great hosts with lots of knowledge about the area. Fine Dining at the Norseman Restaurant on Walker Lake is within walking distance or just a minute drive if you want some takeout to enjoy on the patio. Wonderful lakes and beaches near by. Gail and Jim know all the hidden ones. Be sure to check out the Limberlost Wild Life Reserve its just minutes from the retreat with great hiking and snowshoe trails. Thank you for creating Algonquin Mists, we sill see you soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, loved the Forest View Bachelor suite the best.

My new husband and I took a few days for our "mini-moon" up North and Algonquin Mist was highly recommended by my sister. We had the most lovely, relaxing, refreshing couple of days to regroup after our wedding. Gail and Jim were truly great - I was sick with laryngitis and Gail was sure to bring me some home remedies and herbal treatments to help get me back on my feet! We loved staying in the Garden View Suite - we were really looking forward to the ensuite jacuzzi, the most comfortable King size bed, and cozy fireplace. Our room was kept incredibly clean, our breakfasts were so delicious, and it lovely to chat with Gail in the morning as well as another couple visiting from overseas. Gail and Jim provided many ideas about other parks & restaurants to visit, and Algonquin Mist was only a short drive to Algonquin. Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful retreat for us! We will see you again soon!

My fiancee and I had a trip to Ontario in August, and we decided to spend two days at the Algonquin Mists. It was such a good choice: Gail and Jim are wonderful, helpful and friendly hosts, the house is so cozy, peaceful and luxurious, our room was beautiful, spacious and clean, with ensuite bathroom, a King size bed, sitting area, kitchenette, and a fireplace. We arrived late at night and Gail and Jim offered us a glass of very good red wine, and suggested us the right places to have dinner (trattoria La Dolce Vita was very good). Gale is such a good cook, and breakfast was excellent and plentiful. She also suggested us what to visit in Algonquin Park. I'm dreaming about going back to Algonquin Mists, one day...

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary with a trip to Algonquin park and Algonquin Mists was the perfect place to stay. We were in The Forest View Bachelor Suite, which was a lovely large open space room with fire place and a lovely bathroom including a huge soak in tub-just great. The owners Jim & Gail were super helpful and very sweet and friendly-all in all-a great place to stay!
