We stayed at Hay Lake Lodge and Cottages over Memorial day weekend (outset of black flies season) and came prepared thanks to the advice from Erin. She and her staff are just awesome. We were amazed by the nature surrounding the area (wild life, vegetation, and the loons of course). I loved the raspberry muffins for breakfast and the huge... More

Thank you for this. I agree, spring is a great time to visit Hay Lake and the Park if you have some bug spray, light coloured clothing and a hat or even a bug hat. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and even more glad you plan to return. Thanks again for taking the time to post a review -... More

It is fantastic to have great memories of a place ... and then return to discover it is just as nice as you remember it. This is how we feel about our second visit to Hay Lake Lodge. Our first trip was a decade ago, when we wanted to show friends from Europe how beautiful Ontario is. This time, I... More

My husband and I discovered this gem a few years ago and cannot say enough great things about it. We come back here every year and have brought our family to enjoy it too. It's a beautiful retreat, the cottages are well spaced apart that it feels very private. It is an extremely well maintained property and the cottages are... More

We had a wonderful time at the Hay Lake Cottages. We had a lovely cottage, rustic but not dirty. Huge screen porch to sit and watch the lake while escaping the mosquitos and blackflies Lovely breakfast brought to our cottage, easy drive into Algonquin Park to go hiking, canoes available to explore the lake. We would definitely go again and... More

An anniversary or any milestone is a great time to pause and relax. Thank you for joining us - Screened Porches are one of the best parts of the cabins I think! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope to see you again. More

We can't say enough great things about Hay Lake...like the best combination of a cabin stay and a bed and breakfast. The breakfast they brought to us each morning was wonderful. Lots of personal touches made this place special, like a blow-dryer and night light in the bathroom, beach towels provided, coffee and tea available in the kitchen cupboard, fans... More

Stayed three nights at Hay Lake Lodge with four other friends and we all said we would go back in a heartbeat. Our cottage was charming, extra clean and very well equipped.
