“great housekeeping cottages close to Algonquin Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2011

This was our second stay. Nice cottages, not fancy but clean and well-equipped. The location is excellent for Algonquin Park. For a winter visit they have tobogganing, skating and cross-country skiing on-site. The owners have really thought about providing a great property with the accommodations and the activities, My only suggestions: (1.) a later checkout time (10 am seems a little unreasonable) and (2.) buy new towels!

At the Blue Spruce Resort we are constantly looking at ways to improve our service and standards for our guest. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself during your stay with us and certainly would love for you to stay with us again in the future if ever in the Algonquin Park area. I do apologize that the towels did not meet your standards. We would have gladly exchanged your towels had we know you were not satisfied. Sometimes late check-outs can be arranged if circumstances allow.

Once again we thank you for choosing our Resort and hope to see you in the future.

My husband and I have been going for several years and now we go each summer with our young family...this resort is a gem and our absolute favourite place in the summer! The cottages are wonderfully kept and clean...the resort itself is impeccable! Scott and Linda (owners) feel like old friends and they really seem to make each and every guest feel that way...I would not go anywhere else for our summer vacation and now that I have children I look forward to all their cottage memories being of Blue Spruce.

very friendly staff has it all ready for you when you arrive. The best in up- to- date and "over the top" ammeneties for all ages inside and outside of the Warm and cozy motel units and cottages Tip-top clean and up to date.The views are breathtaking.You will be spoiled without the need for frivolous calls for room service as you might at many other housekeeping...OR bed-only resorts for that matter..Rates should be higher..Blue Spruce resort truly is in a league of its own. A "GEM".
BOOK EARLY!!!

This Place is GREAT!!!!! My Wife is in a wheelchair and this place was close to perfect for us "which is hard to find". There was only one stair to get into the cottage. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Cottage was very clean and well prepared. Beautiful view of the lake and beach. Location was key .... Perfectly situated on a small sideroad off of Hwy 60.... If you were driving by and not looking for it you would definately miss it. Close to Algonquin Park for a hike or day outing. Great Water attractions such as a Trampoline, paddle boats, etc for the kids. This place was an absolute treat to visit. We have already booked for 2009 and upon departure we will be booking for 2010.

this is the most beautiful resort close to algonquin park. it's totally nature, and quiet , and beautiful landscape. the place is awesome: it has everything you need: the studios are huge, well furnished, the kitchenette is over equipped ( you just need to fill the fridge). there is even a bbq for your own. the beach has beds and chairs and pedal-boats and lifevests for free ( canoes are chargeable). kids will love the trampoline in the lake. there is also a wonderful playground for them and a tennis court . there is a leisure room with a ping pong table, a pool table, books and table games. And don't forget the laun dry! And most of all there are Scott and Lynda, the hosts, who are so friendly, and helpful to give all the information you need. Wonderful, unforgettable staying!
I have to say one thing though: beware of mosquitos ( take it easy, the rooms have double doors to protect from them!)

We have been here several times over the years. The owners are professional and pleasant. We usually stay in cabin#5, which has a king bed and jacuzzi tub, wood-burning fireplace, full kitchen and bbq. The amenities, although always in working order, are kind of dated. They could spend a little money on upgrading some of the furnishings which would off-set the constantly rising prices. The firewood is $6 a bag above and beyond what they give you and the movies rentals have a small selection. There are no phones. The skating rink is nice in the winter and the area as a whole is awesome in the park and around the oxtongue river. We would return more often is they didn't refer every weekend as the "on-season". Winter is off-season...period.

We looked at many properties on the road from Huntsville to the Algonquin Park entrance and this had by far the best cottages and was one of the closest to the park.

The cottage we had was large, clean and airey and well decorated. There was a deck with a BBQ and a lovely view of the lake . There was a local road between the cottage and the lake, but there were few cars using it.

The resort had a nice beach and deck by the lake, it was slightly annoying that they charged for canoes off season, when most other resorts didn't bother.

The only drawback would be if you had a cottage nearer the main road, as it seemed to be used by large trucks, which were quite noisy going over the bridge at the end of the lake.

We would certainly recommend the resort to anyone.
