Certificate of Excellence
Return to an era of grace and simplicity..... Killarney Mountain Lodge is a casual resort nestled on the north shore of Georgian Bay. Family owned and operated for over 50 years, the lodge is famous for friendly ambience, a distinctive cuisine and a unique outdoor adventure programme. This comfortable oasis features a charming dining room; nostalgic cocktail lounge with live entertainment during July and August; heated swimming pool, sauna and tennis court. The red granite shores of the Bay and white quartzite hills and sparkling lakes of Killarney Provincial Park beckon the explorer. There are Unlimited opportunities for daily expeditions by canoe, kayak, sail and trail in Ontario's most spectacular scenic wilderness. Killarney Provincial Park has always been considered the Crown Jewel of Ontario Parks. It abounds with wildlife large and small, from squirrels and chipmunks to deer, moose, elk and black bear. As a wilderness park, all forms of resource extraction, motorized equipment and hunting are prohibited. Visitors to the park are therefore assured of peace and tranquility. When exploring the intriguing channels and mysterious islands of Georgian Bay by kayak or aboard the lodge's excursion vessels, stunning vistas are at every hand. Sightings of waterfowl, deer, moose and bear are common. During a restful sojourn at the lodge guests can enjoy a quiet poolside read or a relaxing dip in the solar heated swimming pool. When action is the order of the day local wilderness trails start right at the lodge doorstep. They offer easy access to the outback in just a few short steps. Birdwatchers will find a wide variety of birds on both the lodge property itself and along these nearby trails. A few years ago a highly respected, elderly birder sighted 76 varieties during the course of a spring weekend. Killarney has always been a focal point for anglers. The lodge motto is "big waters mean big fish". We have all the equipment and facilities for a successful fishing trip including guides, boats both large and small and rental tackle. Giant northern pike and muskellunge are favourites for anyone seeking these voracious predators. Northern Georgian Bay's least known rod and reel resource is the unbelievable abundance of small and largemouth bass. These fighting fish lurk in the deep, near-shore pools. Commonly they run to four and five pounds. In recent years down rigging for salmon and trout has become a major activity in the Killarney area and Killarney Mountain Lodge has vessels dedicated to this deepwater style of fishing. Just 4.5 Hours from Toronto via Highways 400, 69 and 637, the lodge is easily accessible. If you take this route to Killarney, a circle tour is available to return to southern Ontario via Manitoulin Island, across the Fitzwilliam Channel to Georgian Bay aboard the Chi-Cheemaun ferry, Tobermory and on to the Bruce Peninsula. This provides a rare opportunity to enjoy some of Ontario's less visited backcountry as well as an exciting trip across the wide expanse of Lake Huron.

Enjoyed our 3 night stay at the lodge. Rooms are lovely. Food was excellent - but if you are staying more than 3 days you might want more variety. Staff were very helpful and attentive throughout our stay. Not a lot of activity to do late October. It was actually nice to have

Start with the backdrop - white-tipped mountains, pink granite and windswept pines - this is Killarney. Then add the facility of Killarney Mountain Lodge. This includes an extensive and thoughtful menu, beautiful meeting rooms and clean rooms with luxury bedding. This is the perf

The lodge has done a nice job with its Renovations. We stayed at the covered Portage which was lovely. Had colleagues stay in their original cabins and they were very dissatisfied due to age, general condition and cramped quarters. Despite the nice setting, I found the room price

Usually I have found that meals, service and overall experience have been quite good at KML until my experience for their Thanksgiving buffet. There were 10 of us that decided to forego cooking our own Thanksgiving meal and treat ourselves to an enjoyable, work-free meal out on t

Responded Oct 21, 2018
Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at the Lodge. This was the second year of our grand Thanksgiving buffet and we more than doubled last years attendance at 148 guests. We received many great comments but no negative comments were brought to my attention until this review. We apologize that we did not meet your expectations, we do encourage you to provide feedback while at the lodge, we are always here to help. We are glad you had a great experience at our sister property, they too had a successful event for 40 people. We look forward to seeing you all again.

Is the lodge dining room open to the public, or is it only available to overnight guests?
When I was there this summer, I believe the dining room was open for reservations from the public. The 'pub' was also open to the public and food could be ordered there. Overnight guests with the meal plan were asked to reserve the time they wanted to eat, so that was part of the reservation system.

Hello! My family has been going to Killarney Mountain Lodge every year by boat since I was a little girl....for 35+ years! We are curious about the changes as we prepare to go in the next few weeks with my kids. Do the docks have ample power and water? Are staff outgoing and accommodating? (we were used to the best service, as over 35 years we made a lot of friends) One review said the pool wasn't ready yet. Is it now? Is it warm? Is the kitchen staff accommodating? (My Mom has developed some food intolerances, so we need some variations to menu items.) Really looking forward to our vacation this year, and hope it is as wonderful as always.
Thank you for your interest in returning to Killarney Mountain Lodge. You will encounter all of your old friends who have returned to work for the new owners plus many more. Our Kitchen can accommodate any diet restrictions and our front desk staff will offer any other help you require. Our pool is open and heated now having a new heating system installed. All of our rooms have new beds and bedding and the Carousel Bar is all new. Please feel free to give us a call to check availability at 1-800-461-1117. Thank You Kelly McAree General Manager

"ask for a room facing the water"
"Try the new building facing the north chanel-well worth it!"
"Ask for new newer rooms but older rooms have new beds and furniture."
"The new king suites are great with a king and pull-out couch."
"cottages are more rustic... no a/c and lodge rooms brand new with all amenities."
