We just returned from a 2 night, 3 day stay. It was wonderful! The staff was friendly and accommodating, our room (Master Suite) was lovely with everything you could want in a hotel suite. Room was very quiet, beds extremely comfortable, no noisy a/c that you typically get in hotels (which drives me nuts!!) and had (as all rooms do...

Thanks so much for the kind review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in so many ways. Being on the lake in the summer is the best way to enjoy Algonquin and it is wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed it. We look forward to seeing you again.

My husband just got back from a weekend at The Couples Resort. This was our first time here. We were looking for a place out of town where we could celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. It sounded perfect. We didn't balk too much at the hefty price tag ($1900 for 2 nights, all in) because we expected the very best....

We stayed at the Couples Resort end of April. We took advantaged of the low season deals. We had the main floor Jr Suite, which is perfect for us because its a walkout to the lake. The room was clean, with jacuzzi and fireplace. I took advantage of the 9am spa deal, and got myself a massage for 50% off...and...

Thank you for your review. The only way I can make this better for you, I hope, is to let you know that prices for the Jr Suites (on the 1st floor) are lower in December and again you will find the same price next April. But the bigger news is that in Mid-October we will be adding a Hot...

My Wife and I stayed for 4 nights late July. Looking for something "more us" - not the typical beach vacation - we found Couple's Resort to be the perfect getaway to finally celebrate our wedding! Tucked just outside Algonquin park, and right on a lake, we made good use of the canoes, kayaks, and mountain bikes almost daily. We...

Thank you for your review to your Perfect Getaway. With all there is to do here we are delighted that you decided to get out and do most all of it, as some of us just prefer the R& R. We learned a long time ago we will never be able to capture the beauty of the Resort and Area...

This is the ultimate getaway for peace, tranquility, and to reconnect. It is not for those of you that do not like nature and need some nightlife.

You are very kind indeed. We are flattered by your kindness. And we agree if you love nature this is for you. If you love camping we usually suggest doing the camping first and staying with us at the end of the trip, in case one has rain while camping than finally getting here will be bliss, doing it the...

It was nice, we enjoyed the break from the kids, we went there in the winter so there was not a ton of stuff to do. The thing that sold me was the food, it was the best food i have ever had, it beat the fancy places in toronto hands down.
