The Algonquin Eco-Lodge is an award winning property on the southern tip of Algonquin Park. Located deep in the forests the Eco-Lodge is a nature enthusiasts dream. Sitting on the shores of a private lake and a cascading waterfall the Lodge is run completely on alternative energy, yet provides all the basic comforts including an outdoor hot tub! It is completely "off-grid", yet the Eco-Lodge creates electricity with a micro-hydro generator running from the waterfall.Algonquin Eco-Lodge won the 2012 Ontario Tourism Award in the Sustainable Tourism category.

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at the EcoLodge, completely off-the-grid so we couldn't be disturbed by work calls. The cabin, which can host about 34 people is a 25 minute easy hike from the parking lot near the main road. Just in front of it lies the huge 30-acre lake, where the Eco-Lodge owner, Mr. Robin Bannerjee, provides canoes and pedal boats for use. When we had called in earlier to book, Robin had suggested we come in the last week of September or the first week of October to the see the peak Fall colours, and we're so glad we took his advice! These photos do not do justice to the colors, they were so bright and vivid, and absolutely MAGICAL! We had a campfire the first night, and Robin showed us how to howl like wolves. The sky was super clear, so we also got to see the starry sky, which was surreal. The next morning, having picked up the sandwich Robin had already packed for us for lunch, we headed out to trek up the the Grand View. A volunteer, Jack, had given us directions and a map of the trail. Just as we started the trek, we saw a huge moose standing right at the beginning of the trail! We were so close, though, cautious, and we marvelled at him for about an hour. Unfortunately we weren't able to do the trek that day because the moose did not move the whole day, and obviously we didn't want to instigate him. We instead did the trek to High Falls (I recommend the canoe trip to High Falls instead, you don't get a good view from the trek and it isn't well maintained). The morning before our departure, we checked, and thankfully the moose was off the trail so we could go up to the Grand View. So so so so glad we did, it is BEAUTIFUL! We saw layers and layers of colors across hills and mountains in the distance. There aren't enough words to describe its beauty. Highly highly recommend! The whole trip was amazing - it was nice to meet others at the cabin, and Robin, is an amazing cook (meals are included when you book). We're vegetarian, and we were unsure how the food would be for us, but it was really good, with great variety. The cabin is packed with books, games, and information to spend the evening, or even an entire day indoors! All in all - it was a great trip, we'd love to be back to experience a different season!

My partner and I had a lovely 3-night stay in the Ecolodge in early July. We appreciated the eco vibe - no cars (walk in along trail from parking lot or come on horseback from nearby stable), hydroelectric power from waterfall - and the communal ambience (breakfast and dinner all guests together, and evening campfire time too if you want). Swimming in Moffat Pond from the lodge dock on shore to the floating dock offshore was a refreshing delight. We saw beaver swimming on the western edge of the lake/pond while canoeing at dawn and just before sundown. We rode horses past Big Rock Lake, with a hike up to Gut Rapids in the park. We also canoed through Little Mink Lake and up the slow moving York River, beaching the canoe to hike and picnic at High Falls. (Lodge host Robin gave us excellent directions for this day trip along with the key advice to always look behind you when you make any turns in the canoe to facilitate being able to find your way back at the end of the day! 8-) Although we did activities on our own (except for the horseback ride), we met other guests who enjoyed guided day trips with lodge host, Robin. We were personally enriched by Robin's intimate knowledge of the ecology, history and geography of the area. I enjoyed this vacation time with my partner very much. If I were traveling solo, I would still feel entirely safe and comfortable staying at the Eco-lodge.

I visited the first weekend of July with my partner and 7-year-old daughter. The three of us had a memorable visit and really appreciated the surroundings, the people we met, and the delicious food that was served. We stayed in a cabin by the small lake on the property (P1). It was functional and reasonably clean although parts of the inside were a bit grimy and neglected. In retrospect, we would have preferred to stay at the main lodge simply because using the bathrooms there is preferable to using an outhouse in the middle of the night. (Although if you like, you can walk to the main lodge and use their facilities whenever you like.) In terms of the surroundings, we enjoyed the free access to the canoes and pedal boat, and the falls nearby. The bonfires at night were also a good opportunity to connect further with other guests and have some roasted marsh mellows. Best of all, however, were the three-hour horse rides through the forest. We did two such trips. The people at South Algonquin Trails, which run the horse business, are very friendly people with a love of horses and the outdoors. The horses mainly walk through the trails with a guide in the front and a guide in the back, but there are moments when they trot a bit and pick up the pace. Since we are new to horseback riding, this was a good early experience.

Back in August 2016 my sister, cousin and I were able to take some time for ourselves for this amazing horseback excursion! It is offered in partnership between the Algonquin Eco-Lodge and South Algonquin Trails Inc. and provides a seamless package that includes delicious meals and comfortable cabin-style accommodation. The three of us are intermediate to advanced riders and our horse guide tailored our ride to fit our level. I am so happy to see they are still going strong in 2021 and highly recommend every horse rider to partake in this experience!

My wife an I stayed two nights at the Ecolodge. It was an excellent time. It's a rustic weekend at a lodge off the grid, but at the same time, it was very comfortable and relaxing. Robin and his help were very accommodating: they explained the area, where we should ski and snowshoe, laid out the eating timetable and rules of the lodge, and served us great food. It's not a 5star resort with people waiting on all your needs, it's just a great weekend away.
