We just got back from a 2 night stay at Colonial Bay for our wedding anniversary. All we were looking for was some peace and quiet outside the city and a lake view. We got much more! Bruce and Nicolle were great! Very pleasant and helpful! The cottage was very cozy and clean. It had everything you could possibly need... More

So our one night at Colonial Bay was booked with a view to it being a rest stop for the night before beginning a 7-day canoe trip at Algonquin Park (Access at Rock Lake), just an hour away. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel like family. Nicolle and Bruce were absolutely lovely! We... More

We stayed at Colonial Bay for 3 nights during a holiday touring around Ontario and Quebec. Having driven a lot, we really wanted a couple of quiet days to chill out and relax and what a perfect location this was - self contained cottages and also motel style rooms (we had one of these). All well laid out with the... More

Stayed in the motel part of the resort for 3 nights in Aug. the cottages looked nice, typical, great for families. The motel rooms were large, clean, fresh, with super comfy beds and awesome linen. The owners told us the beds were new, and they bought the good stuff...nice touch! Rooms were well appointed, nice tv, small fridge and microwave,... More

Excellent location for a comfortable, clean stay. We hiked Algonquin, explored Huntsville and came "home" to a lovely cottage. Great water front location with lots of water activities. Canoed the lake, played on the beach. Bruce and Nicole are excellent hosts. Highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed at the Colonial Bay Cottage Resort for three nights during our round trip through Canada and that was the best time we had in Canada! It's just great to have the lake for swimming or canoeing right in front of your door and you can use the canoes there for free. The hiking trails and canoe rentals of... More

I came across Colonial Bay from a Facebook post for a Band on the Run race I was running in Huntsville. I decided to get away and stay for a few days before the race.

Came to hike in Algonquin Park, the weather gods were not in our favour of camping. Spoke to a local outfitter who suggested we try Colonial Bay even though it is the high time for leaf peepers. Lucky for us, Bruce and Nicole had room for us to stay. From the in room fireplace and kitchenette to the propane BBQ...... More

Ian, Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you and chatting about biking and skiing - two of my passions as well. Next time we will have to arrange to do either depending on the season. Glad Nicolle was able to add the final touch to your salad! Bruce More

Shari, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about Colonial Bay.

Our stay was just too short. Despite less than favourable weather, we had a great time. The cabin (#3) was cosy, comfortable and included everything we needed to whip up great meals. The grounds made for a perfect Boce field and the lake offered up some nice bass and pike, along with canoe and kayaking. Having the public launch right... More

“Cottage #5 was great!!”
 of 5 bubbles jamiek177, 24 Aug 2015 | Read review
“Cottages are more self contained, motel rooms good size but fewer facilities - all very comfy!”

“Cottage #8 is at the very end of the property, bordering the public beach area and its parking lot. It may get noisy with all the cars and people but generally we found it not disturbing.”
