Return to an era of grace and simplicity..... Killarney Mountain Lodge is a casual resort nestled on the north shore of Georgian Bay. Family owned and operated for over 50 years, the lodge is famous for friendly ambience, a distinctive cuisine and a unique outdoor adventure programme. This comfortable oasis features a charming dining room; nostalgic cocktail lounge with live entertainment during July and August; heated swimming pool, sauna and tennis court. The red granite shores of the Bay and white quartzite hills and sparkling lakes of Killarney Provincial Park beckon the explorer. There are Unlimited opportunities for daily expeditions by canoe, kayak, sail and trail in Ontario's most spectacular scenic wilderness. Killarney Provincial Park has always been considered the Crown Jewel of Ontario Parks. It abounds with wildlife large and small, from squirrels and chipmunks to deer, moose, elk and black bear. As a wilderness park, all forms of resource extraction, motorized equipment and hunting are prohibited. Visitors to the park are therefore assured of peace and tranquility. When exploring the intriguing channels and mysterious islands of Georgian Bay by kayak or aboard the lodge's excursion vessels, stunning vistas are at every hand. Sightings of waterfowl, deer, moose and bear are common. During a restful sojourn at the lodge guests can enjoy a quiet poolside read or a relaxing dip in the solar heated swimming pool. When action is the order of the day local wilderness trails start right at the lodge doorstep. They offer easy access to the outback in just a few short steps. Birdwatchers will find a wide variety of birds on both the lodge property itself and along these nearby trails. A few years ago a highly respected, elderly birder sighted 76 varieties during the course of a spring weekend. Killarney has always been a focal point for anglers. The lodge motto is "big waters mean big fish". We have all the equipment and facilities for a successful fishing trip including guides, boats both large and small and rental tackle. Giant northern pike and muskellunge are favourites for anyone seeking these voracious predators. Northern Georgian Bay's least known rod and reel resource is the unbelievable abundance of small and largemouth bass. These fighting fish lurk in the deep, near-shore pools. Commonly they run to four and five pounds. In recent years down rigging for salmon and trout has become a major activity in the Killarney area and Killarney Mountain Lodge has vessels dedicated to this deepwater style of fishing. Just 4.5 Hours from Toronto via Highways 400, 69 and 637, the lodge is easily accessible. If you take this route to Killarney, a circle tour is available to return to southern Ontario via Manitoulin Island, across the Fitzwilliam Channel to Georgian Bay aboard the Chi-Cheemaun ferry, Tobermory and on to the Bruce Peninsula. This provides a rare opportunity to enjoy some of Ontario's less visited backcountry as well as an exciting trip across the wide expanse of Lake Huron.

Room was large, modern and quite beautiful as was the area. I would love to return in the summer to experience it with my entire family. The chairs outside the room are a nice touch. Everyone I spoke with was lovely and I had no issues.

From the time that we were greeted by the dock master Red and his staff to the moment we left on Sunday this was truly a wonderful experience. Everyone needs to visit. Looking forward to doing it again.

Response from Kelly K, General Manager at Killarney Mountain Lodge
Responded 1 week ago
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We indeed don't have TV's, coffee makers, refrigerators or microwaves in our rooms and that is on purpose. Our rooms are for a good rest, with luxury Egyptian cotton sheets, super soft goose down pillows, custom made pillow top beds that are made specifically to our specifications for a cloud like sleep. For those that need a TV, or food, or coffee we have facilities in the lodge including our Curds N Whey Coffee Shop and Bakery, Our Great Room Patio Lounge, our Carousel Poolside Lounge, Our Lodge Dining room featuring a locally and regionally themed menu and , new for 2019 , our Ranch House Steak House. We enjoyed welcoming your group to the lodge, we worked closely with your event planners to establish the menu based on a guaranteed number to attend, unfortunately a substantial number of extra people arrived unregistered and late, together with those that over indulged on the buffet we provided at the expense of other guests resulted in those that arrived late not having the full compliment. We have discuss the issues caused by some members of the group with the facilitators and will be making changes for next years celebration with a set service time and plated service instead of buffet. We do appreciate all the previous 5 star reviews from those that attended also. We hope to welcome you and your group back again another time.

The Sportsman Inn is usually where we snowmobile to so it was a nice change of pace to visit the Lodge. Beautiful place and the new rooms are awesome. I would come back but in the warmer months to enjoy the beauty and amenities of the Lodge.

Is the lodge dining room open to the public, or is it only available to overnight guests?
When I was there this summer, I believe the dining room was open for reservations from the public. The 'pub' was also open to the public and food could be ordered there. Overnight guests with the meal plan were asked to reserve the time they wanted to eat, so that was part of the reservation system.

"ask for a room facing the water"
"Try the new building facing the north chanel-well worth it!"
"Ask for new newer rooms but older rooms have new beds and furniture."
"The new king suites are great with a king and pull-out couch."
"cottages are more rustic... no a/c and lodge rooms brand new with all amenities."
