“going downhill in a hurry”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

if you dont mind feeling unwanted or a burden then this is the place for you, owners have become very rude and unappreciated of paying customers, they spent most of there time complaing about other guests and what they did or did not do during there stay. customer service is not present at this resort. besides the new cottage #3 they build the rest are old rundown and expensive for the area, you can get better cottages across the lake with cleaner beaches and more to do for kids without having to always look over your shoulder to see if the owners are going to roar at you for doing nothing wrong.

Once again I am at a loss with this one, We have had no regulars in from Toronto recently, it would seem that this and the previouse complaint were written by the same person. Once again if there was a problem why not say while they were here or when they left.
When the four twenty year olds that left a cottage in a mess were charged for the cleaning etc they did threaten us, maybe this is their revenge.

We stayed in cottage 4 and appreciated having a bedroom with a double and single beds for 3 children, as well as a bedroom for parents. We had an extra teenager along who was very comfortable on the futon in the living room. The price was reasonable and all the amenities we expect in a cottage were available. The swimming is excellent, sandy beach very pleasant and we made good use of the canoes and kayaks. Part way through the week 2 beach umbrellas appeared which provided some much-needed shade. We would have chosen a cottage on the beach except we were 6 people and needed one more bed. Cottage 4 is probably the oldest of all the cottages and from speaking to the owners, I understand it will be replaced soon. We were happy enough as we had enough space and kitchen equipment (just). We would have been comfortable in cottage 3 as well, which is larger, but we wanted one more bed. Although it was hot during the day, it cooled down very comfortably at night and we were able to sleep. A fan was also provided. Ice cream is available at the store; the large tub is a very good value!

We stumbled upon this cozy cottage by accident. Canada Day Weekend, we called all over the area for a last minute reservation. Found Parkway Cottages as a recommendation from a nearby motel. 100.00 a night bought us a clean one room cottage. It had a full size fridge. A microwave, sink, propane stove, and a bbq on the deck.. Sleeping area, had a queen size bed, A small table and chairs for eating,and alot of windows. There is no aircondtioning, and no tv, and no oven.. We didn't need air contioning, The day was in the 90's , it cooled down to a two blanket night. Very cool. The bathroom consists of a stand up shower, small sink , and toilet. Everything was very clean, and tidy.The owners request quiet , and quiet it was. A short walk down the only road leads to a beach, on Oxtongue Lake. They supply free canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats. A fire pit is for use by all visitors. A nice gathering place to meet other guests. I had the chance to peak inside a two bedroom cottage. It was very spacious, and slept 5 people comfortably.,at 150.00 night. The owners run a gas station, general store at the front of the property. This property is a good value for your money. It is also the closest property to the West gate of Algonquin Park.

Room Tip: The two bedroom cottages are right on the lake. They appear to be the best value. 150.00 a night. Th...

This group of lovely little cottages is located only a few miles from the West Gate entrance of Algonquin Provincial Park. We stayed here on a photo tour of the area just as the spectacular leaves were changing colours. There are 8 cottages in all, some situated on a small lake with a private sandy beach, others spread among the trees. The cottages all have different configurations ranging from studios with 1 double bed to 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom cottages. All of the cottages are kept immaculately clean and all have fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, bed linens, kitchen towels, hand and dish soap, bathroom amenities, AM-FM radio, deck furniture, gas barbeque, electric heat and blankets. The 3 bedroom cottage has satellite TV and a DVD player, Gas Fireplace and a Gas Stove. Along the beach there are canoes, kayaks and paddle boats available for guest use. There is an automobile gas bar, a small gift shop and a small grocery store at the Trading Post located on site.

My husband and I stayed in cottage 8, just a few steps from the lovely little beach. The night sky was spectacular as there is very little lighting in the area. Our hosts were congenial and hard working.
The cottage contained everything we needed and we had been told to bring our own towels.
We were looking for something that felt "cottagey" and we got what we were looking for.
Thank you!

This was our 21st year at Parkway. We have enjoyed all 21 years. The resort is small and quaint and works perfect for our extended family. The lake is beautiful and the cottages are clean and comfortable. The beach is the perfect size and is cleaned and groomed every morning. You are close to Huntsville and Algonquin Park if your interested in day trips not to mention the on site general store and gift shop for those basic needs. Yes, they serve ice cream. The service is very good and friendly and always willing to help with any problems you may experience. They are sincerely invested in making your stay an enjoyable one. If your looking for a small, quiet, clean, well maintained resort then look no further than Parkway cottages.

I enjoy my yearly vacation at Parkway Cottage Resort & Trading Post with family and friends. There is a large group of us who have been fortunate enough to have a relaxing time at the rustic and well kept cottages for the past 17 years or so.

Parkway makes our stay comfortable, they are always friendly and greet us with a smile.

We have sincerely thoroughly enjoyed ours stays each and every year.
