Good communication and responses via email prior to booking. Initially reserved a duplex with a request to upgrade to the msin lske if possible, we were delighted when we arrived and had been allocated our request, even better was the complimentary upgrade to twin bedrooms as this gave much more space... thank you.
Unfortunately and no fault of the owners there was a lot of road noise due to contruction of road improvements, when discussed this the staff they offered to move us into the duplex at a quieter part of the lake. We decided to stay in the larger cabins for more privacy but go out during the day.
Meals are very nice and certainly large, if travelling from the u.k. they are not what we describe as fine dining more homely and wholesome.
I felt that security of personal belongings to be an issues there are no safe lockers and only basic style entrance door locks. Whilst I am sure nobody has isues with person security the past does not reflect the future and this could be an area to be considered needing review.
Overall a pleasant break. I personally would prefer not to have tipping discussed during check in.

Thank you for complimenting us on our pre-booking communication. We do pride ourselves on trying to respond promptly and completely :)

While we appreciate your comments about security of personal belongings, we sincerely believe that it is a non issue. In the 34 years that I have been here we have NEVER had an incident of a guest's property going missing. In fact we leave many of our own buildings unlocked 24/7 ... and numerous guests never bother locking their cabins either ;)

Finally, the reason we briefly mention at check-in how staff gratuities work at the Lodge (a pooling system) is so that guests do NOT worry about leaving tips at meals nor in their cabins. Most guests seem to appreciate being informed of this on arrival.
Thanks again for your comments.

Well kept and clean cabin facing the lake with a comfortable bed. We had our own small dock and canoe. The food was excellent! Everything is delicious and the desserts were outstanding - everything from the cookies in the takeout lunch to the outstanding pecan pie. It was hard to select from the options as they all were very good. Recommend this location for a relaxing nature getaway. It seems pricey but there are no added fees once you pay the rate - all high quality meals, snacks and amenities are included.

Room Tip: Book early and get a cabin on the shore away from Highway 60.

Thanks for pointing out that, while seeming pricey, there are "no added fees" ... that the one rate covers everything.
Sometimes we find that people forget this when comparing our rates to other options.

We had a fabulous experience at the Killarney Lodge in Ontario's Algonquin Park. In some ways you are going back to a simpler and much less stressful past. Not to mention a well-fed, unpretentious, comfortable past. Killarney Lodge is an extended cluster of cabins perched on the edge of a lake, centring on a restaurant that serves high-quality meals of a fairly traditional kind. We just wanted to relax, which was easy, amble around, watch the canoeists, count the ducks, avoid TV. All these things are possible. NO TV in the rooms, one small post for internet, no complications. Highly recommended. One extra point -- you can smoke OUTSIDE, not inside.

Room Tip: Dog fanciers have their own sector, closer to the highway. locating relatively close to the office/restaurant.

We loved your use of the word "unpretentious" to describe the Lodge. We like to think that's what we are.
Thank you for all your kind comments and for recommending us highly :)

Just returned from 3 nights at Killarney Lodge. Accomodation: semi-detached log cabin, spotless inside, no musty smell, great bed and bedding. Large bathroom but narrow tub. Dining room was lovely, as pictured. Food was good quality, well prepared and wait staff were very professional and pleasant. Canoe at your door is wonderful, beach is nice for swimming, bluejays and chipmunks don't hesitate to come close to get peanuts you can leave out for them. We used our own data plan and had excellent wifi and cell coverage. Guests were friendly and quiet. Be prepared for road noise.

Wow ... thanks for your such complimentary comments about our accommodation. "Spotless" ... what more could we ask for! We have a fabulous housekeeping team. The core have been here for 25+ years!

By the way the Duplex unit you were in is the only cabin on the property with "narrow" tubs. (actually, they are narrow but extra deep)

Thanks for your lovely review.

This is one of our favourite places to stay. As for accomodations, the cabins are charming, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We were served three delicious, well prepared meals a day in the cozy pine panelled dining room. The lodge's staff attended to our every need and request cheerfully and promptly. As guests of Killarney Lodge all the facilities of the park were available to us durigng our stay...trails, museums, ranger talks etc. We've stayed at Killarney Lodge many times and have always enjoyed our stay. We love this place!
