There are numerous really nice (and expensive) resorts in this area, as well as numerous more ordinary (and cheaper) motels. Colonial Bay hits a nice spot in the middle. Our room (in the "motel" part, not a cottage) was very clean, and adequate in all ways. Being right on the water, we could swim, canoe, and enjoy just sitting and... More

We booked this resort one week before our trip to Algonquin Park. It was exactly what the tripadvisor reviews talked about: clean, spacious, friendly hosts and beautiful view with lots to offer!.. The one thing I did overlook and miss was that the motel rooms were not air-conditioned, but each room was supplied with a fan and had a cross... More

A very big thumbs up for Bruce and Nicole! We really liked their friendliness and attention to detail. Breakfast is supplied the evening before, so you can leave for Algonquin as early as you like. We loved the fresh strawberries:-) It's also great to be able to sit outside in the evenings- we're lucky with the weather. We stayed in... More

We booked this place online with no major expectations, just wanted a decent clean room for the weekend. We stayed 2 nights in 1 of the motel style rooms and were pleasantly surprised firstly at the service from Nicolle (the owner) who not only gave us tips on where to snowshoe, eat and drink, but also put Valentine's Day chocolates...

We stayed for a week in August with our family. We rented 2 cottages. We were in Muskoka for an Ironman event. The property is beautiful and right on the water. Both our cottages were great, small and simple and exactly what we were looking for. The water is clear and gorgeous. There is a boat launch right beside the... More

We loved our stay at Colonial Bay. We initially booked for 2 nights and decided to stay 2 more. Comfortable,very clean, beautiful lake, and the hosts were fantastic. 20 minutes to the West gate of Algonquin and less then 10 minutes into Huntsville. We'll be back!

We stayed here at the beginning of September for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms are very clean and the beds super comfy. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We were able to canoe on the lake and use the life jackets etc provided free of charge - all in all much better than we... More

We just got back from a 2 night stay at Colonial Bay for our wedding anniversary. All we were looking for was some peace and quiet outside the city and a lake view. We got much more!

So our one night at Colonial Bay was booked with a view to it being a rest stop for the night before beginning a 7-day canoe trip at Algonquin Park (Access at Rock Lake), just an hour away. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel like family. Nicolle and Bruce were absolutely lovely! We... More

We stayed at Colonial Bay for 3 nights during a holiday touring around Ontario and Quebec. Having driven a lot, we really wanted a couple of quiet days to chill out and relax and what a perfect location this was - self contained cottages and also motel style rooms (we had one of these). All well laid out with the... More
