First time visit to the Wolf Den and loved it. Stayed in larger eco-cabins and really enjoyed the cabin and location. Owners were very welcoming and kind, very helpful and respectful. Really enjoyed the visit.

This was our second visit to Wolf Den, and I just love it. The owners, Jennifer and Jacques, are incredibly warm and welcoming. I was a bit sceptical at first, I thought I had long ago traded in the hostel experience for five star hotels. But I loved Wolf Den - the place, the atmosphere, the conviviality. The main house...

The Wolf den was great. We had one of the private cabins across the road from the main lodge. The cabin was well-equipped uncomfortable and it was lovely to eat meals outside. One of the best parts of our stay was the eclectic group of guests who gather around the campfire every night. We had visitors from Germany, Ireland, Romania,... More

The private log cabin had a very comfy large bed, was equipped with a fire extinguisher, and had plenty of space to spread out all my gear. There were plenty of washrooms, wash stations and kitchen equipment for accommodating large or small groups entering and exiting. Coop living feel that was pleasant and not overly communal to the point of... More

With the whole family we rented a part of the hostel, like wooden chalets including a main centre for 'do it your self' cooking & meals. Lovely atmosphere, great base camp to visit the Alconquin Park.

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights and 3 days in the Chickadee cabin. It was perfect for the two of us. The kitchen was well stocked with cutlery and cooking pans. The only part that disappointed us was the fact we weren't able to contact the owners to inquire about trails. When we first arrived, the gentleman mentioned they... More

Jen R, Owner at Wolf Den Hostel & Nature Retreat, responded to this review

Hi Christina - I'm really sorry we weren't right there when you were looking for us. We often try to get out and enjoy Algonquin ourselves during the shoulder seasons when we have few guests staying. It's a shame our outing overlapped with the time you were trying to track us down. We normally give guests a full introduction to... More

This place and the owners are first rate! There are options for all budgets, but I especially like the square timber log cabins & the fireplaces within each - great ambiance esp. for the romantics like me! Jen & Jacque are super warm hosts, and real to the core. And, of course, you're only moments from the west gate of... More

My b.f and I rented the chickadee cabin for two days to explore the area and Algonquin. The location is perfect, the cabin was cozy, clean and had everything we needed. Lots of hiking/snowshoeing just off the property if you don't feel like driving. Jen recommended an unmarked trail just off their road and it was absolutely breathtaking, we had... More

Loved staying in the eco cabin. Jen and Joc were lovely hosts. The cabins were beautiful and had everything we needed. We visited in winter and hiked all over the park. They welcomed our dog and had a lovely dog too. Lovely design of the cabins and they thought of everything you could possibly need in the kitchen.

We have stayed here several times before, both in a lodge room and in one of the out buildings, and have been very happy with our accommodations, the property, amenities and of course, the wonderful hospitality of the owners. Most recently, we enjoyed a few nights in one of their cabins, located across the street from the main lodge. Beautiful... More
