What a Fantastic location! Accessible by boat only, great rustic cabins. The food was absolutely fantastic, good choice of mains. Bikes, canoes, kayaks, are free to use at your leisure. Lots of hiking and bike trails near by. It’s a bit pricey, however the atmosphere, and the beauty makes up for it. Highly recommended.

Amazing service from all staff - especially from Nicholas on the front desk who passionately gave us all the inside info on exploring the lake by canoe and portage. Very lovely and friendly. The whole place was so peaceful and quiet. Unfortunately (not for lack of trying), we didn't see any moose - or much wildlife at all, which may reflect the time of year. The food was delicious and plentiful. The servers were also happy to oblige with any request and nothing was too much to ask. Remember to bring your own wine for dinner (BYO is actually a fantastic perk of the place!). We stayed in the A.Y Jackson Suite and the room was warm and comfortable, even in October. It had a rustic cabin feel but was not dated. The bed was large (twins put together). Something to note is that the lodge faces NE on the water, which is towards a carpark. So for a nice view at sunset, you may want to get out on a canoe. A highlight of our stay was the exclusive access to the Track and Tower trail via canoe. We escaped the crowded carpark and landed over halfway up the trail, for a short trot to the lookout. Overall, a fabulous stay which actually felt to be great value when you take into account the meals, canoe/SUP board usage, and park pass, are all included.

We spent 3 nights at Bartlett Lodge, just after Thanksgiving for our 32nd anniversary. We had seen the lodge from across the lake on previous visits to Algonquin Park, so it was a bit of a bucket list item for us. Unfortunately the leaves were past their peak during our stay, but it was still warm enough to take out a canoe and hike as long as we had our layers on. We stayed in Silver Birches which is a quaint little cabin right on the water. King size bed was very comfy and the cabin was spotless. Covers were showing a bit of wear but I see they are being replaced for next season. View of the lake was spectacular, as we were right on the water, and screened in porch would be great for bug season. There was a 2nd bedroom with 2 small bunks so it would also do for a family with young children. We used the 2nd room like a closet to keep our bags out of the way, also it had a dresser so gave us some counter top space for toiletries. Bathroom had a pedestal sink with a small shelf, so no storage space at all. Bathtub however was deeper than our home tub, so had a nice soak on one of the chillier days. My only big disappointment with the cabin was the lack of wood stove or fireplace. I was mislead by the TripAdvisor page showing the rooms featured fireplaces - I took this to mean all rooms had them. Also it does mention blackout curtains, but our blinds and sheers let through quite a bit of light - it was fine in Oct when the days are short, but wouldn't be good in July. For Covid there was no daily housekeeping visits during our stay, which was fine for us. Also evening dining was divided into 2 seatings - 6 and 8 pm. We booked our time in advance as we tend to like to eat earlier so we can digest before bed. Tables were well spread apart and the servers were masked at all times. Marilyn would seat everyone each evening spending a couple of minutes to chat with each table, and then came by again later in the meal to check that everything was good with dinner. The wait staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially the 2 young people from England who were so nice to chat with. The food was very, very good. Stand outs - charcuterie board every day (yum, and I've never been one for the smoked fish or dried meats), fresh made bread or buns, mushroom&leek salad, crab&shrimp cake, duck leg, beef tenderloin, pavlova, morning yogurt&fruit plate, eggs benedict Overall it was a very, very relaxing stay. Hope to come back again.

It is no wonder that Bartlett Lodge is #1 of Specialty Lodging in Algonquin Park. It is a great spot amidst the natural splendor of Algonquin with great breakfast and dinners included, and very friendly and accommodating staff. When we arrived at the Cache Lake landing our delightful, large, cedar-strip canoe was waiting to run us the 500 metres across the bay to the lodge. In the midst of Covid, we felt very safe and able to distance from the driver and other passengers in the launch. And at the restaurant there was hand wash stations and good physical distancing observed with all servers wearing masks. Marilyn, the General Manager, was always available and came over to every table at dinner to see that everything was good with your meal and stay. She was a font of Algonquin stories and information. The meals were deliciously varied and ample. We don't think that we have had a better beef fillet ever! But everything was delicious from the starting charcuterie board, through the smoked tuna appetizer or varied salads, the changing entrees with wonderful desserts (Marilyn's perfectly spiced and sauced pumpkin, bread pudding stands out). Breakfasts were also great. As former canoe-trippers, we were looking forward to our 2 nights in the "glamping" Thompson Tent and we were prepared for cooler autumn weather. However when the temperature fell to zero degrees and despite getting into our king bed with tuques and coats, it was great to be able to move to a cabin with electric heat and a fire for our 2nd night. We enjoyed hiking on a short trail on lodge property followed by canoeing on Cache and Tanamakoon Lakes in one of the many canoes available. The scenery is spectacular and there are many docks with comfortable Muskoka chairs from which to view the sunrises and sunsets with an appropriate beverage at hand. It was a perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary.

We spent a lovely weekend here at the end of September. The location is beautiful. The staff is helpful and eager to please. Our cabin (Spring Ice) was quiet. Some of the cabins are close together but Spring Ice, Summers Day and the glam tents are not. Our cabin was comfortable but basic. At the price we paid I felt it could have better bedding, pillows and nicer towels. A dresser to store clothes would have been helpful. The meals were delicious but the menu was repetitive. The same four entrees were on the menu on three nights we were there (Beef Filet, Arctic Char, pasta and Flank steak). I am not a beef or pasta eater so the only thing on the menu for me was Arctic Char. We spoke to Marilyn about this and she ordered us special meals on the last night but it's better not to have to ask. Maybe replace the Flank steak with a chicken entree and rotate the fish selection? The kayaks and canoes were sturdy and in good shape. But the life jackets were stinky and musty. Plenty of Muskoka chairs through out the property so there are lots of areas to sit and enjoy the view. Bartlett trail is well marked and scenic. Covid protocols were followed. Hand sanitizers were available and disinfection handy to spray down boats and outdoor chairs. Masks were worn by all staff. Guests required masks in indoor common areas...unless they were sitting down to eat. The dining room tables were far apart. Nice touch that the owner, Marilyn went and spoke to each table at dinner time. She had a mask on but I have to admit this made me uncomfortable due to covid. All the windows in the lobby and dining room were closed even though it was a warm sunny weekend. I would have liked to see a couple windows open for better ventilation. When we entered our cabin for the first time, windows were closed. I would have been reassured if the cabin was aired out between guests. Overall we enjoyed our weekend in Algonquin park. Bartlett Lodge was a great place to stay.

Response from David Fortune, General Manager at Bartlett Lodge
Responded Oct. 6, 2020
Hello pippakee2016, Thank you for taking the time to leave us value feedback and for your patronage despite all of the chaos of CoVID-19! I appreciate your notes about bedding and I am happy to report that we have invested in entirely new bedding for the majority of our resort for next season, including luxurious duvets. I apologize that you found the menu to be repetitive. It has certainly been a challenging year to source a variety of product - especially in our remote location! Regrettably, since all of our fish comes in fresh every 3-4 days, it is rare that we have different varieties as we really discourage freezing it from a quality standpoint. I am glad that our chefs were able to prepare you a special off-menu meal. I have passed your notes and feedback on to our chef, and hope that you may find more to your liking on a future visit. Thank you for your note about the lifejackets. This is something that I will certainly look in to. It is very warming to hear your praise for our CoVID protocols; it is something that our staff have worked very hard at maintaining throughout the season - both for their safety and the safety of all our guests. We generally keep windows closed in guest cabins in an effort to conserve energy. One of our biggest considerations each season is ensuring that we are respectful to the natural beauty of the park, it's animals, and it's ecosystem. The mornings in the park can be quite cool, so generally windows and doors are kept close when cabins are unoccupied to conserve heat and not waste energy. Thank you again for staying with us. Stay well, David
