I know there have been a few negative comments of late but frankly I don't know what these people expect in a wooden lodge in the middle of the wilderness. Mice? Oh dear - what a terrible thing! We were actually hoping for wolves and bear at close quarter! Our family have visited this Eco-lodge twice now in two years and we have never been disappointed. - in fact we are now planning another visit next year and thinking about maybe visiting during the winter season just for a change.
We love the outdoors, the wildlife, the peace and quiet, and the adventure - we have never been disappointed. We were taken by one of the lodge's guides for a day drip by canoe to High Falls - beautiful by anyone's standards and a wonderful trip.
I will never forget relaxing on the deck, watching the humming birds while the boys (we have two teenage boys and their friends) explored the trails and relaxed in the hammocks by the pond.
Our evenings were spent around thecamp fire, grilling marshmallows, relating stories about close calls with the resident wildlife and having a good old sing song. Wonderful!!
Maybe the rooms aren't 5* but the friendly and relaxed atmosphere is second to none. We wouldn't expect 5* accommodation in the middle of the wilderness - we came here for adventure and that's what we got.
The staff couldn't do enough for us and joined us in the evenings to tell stories and help complete our experience of Algonquin.
Complaints about lack of sauna etc are ridiculous. Come to the Eco-lodge in winter and you're sure to get a sauna and hot tub experience to remember - try joining the polar bear club!!!
We love the Eco-lodge and will surely be back - if they'll have us!
I am sure that anyone who truly loves the outdoor will love it too.
