Our first cottage experience together and with our puppy. We stayed a week in the Sunset cottage and the view of Purdy Lake was absolutely phenomenal! The cozy cottage made our stay delightful, especially with the 3 separate patio sliding doors, the indoor hot-tub, the water toys (paddled out and saw the gorgeous Loons) and the unforgettable memories we will...

The Sunset Cottage exceeded our expectations! The indoor hot tub and infrared sauna took it over the top! The cathedral ceilings made the cabin feel even more spacious and the three sets of patio doors, all facing the lake, were spectacular! The property is stunning, even in mid March. We will definitely be back - looking forward to a return...

We stayed at Blue Moon Retreat from March 4th to the 6th in Sunset cottage. It was our first time visiting and our expectations were surpassed. The cottage was super clean, and being a pet friendly resort that was remarkable. It is stocked with all amenities, nothing is left for want. The hot tub and infrared sauna were a treat....

Loved it. Clean beyond clean. Everything included. They clean the places spic and span you would never know that the people before you arrived had a dog. The water toys were amazing. For people with a dog who want to go away, it was unparalleled! The deck was enclosed. We had the BBQ, we had a fire. I can't tell...

Stayed in the maples cottage. Extremely clean and comfortable. My husband and I stayed from Jan 31st to Feb 6th, 2016. Already looking forward to going back in the fall to hike and bike and enjoy all the fall colours. Do not have pets and was concerned about how clean the cottage would be, was shocked that animals actually stay...

First time here, me , my wife and three dogs. We had the most peaceful and relaxing time. Blue Moon exceeded our expectations, the Maples was fantastic, everything that was needed and more was there. We can't say enough good about the owner and staff that we met.

We travelled all the way from Ireland to stay at this resort. We loved every minute of it and explored the local area extensively. Algonquin National Park, Barrys Bay and Bancroft. I'm a keen photographer wanting to capture the fall and I wasn't disappointed. We did some canoeing on the lake and had some great walks in the local area....

Blue Moon Retreat is absolutely incredible. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! We booked the Sunset cottage for a week, and were blown away the moment we walked in the door. The place is clean as a whistle, with no details overlooked. The cottage well stocked with supplies like soap, paper towels, drinking water, foil -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We invite you to unwind, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate at our small cottage resort on peaceful Purdy Lake which is located between Bancroft and Barry's Bay on the quieter, southeast side of Ontario's Algonquin Park. Our all-inclusive, 'cut-above', resort has 1,500 feet of frontage on a largely undeveloped lake. A pair of loons nest on the island in the centre and their mournful cries are music for the soul. With just 6 housekeeping cottages on 20 acres you will be sharing this slice of the sparsely populated Canadian Algonquin Highlands with only a few other guests and the local wildlife. Many of our guests come for weekend or mid-week getaways during the even quieter fall, winter and spring seasons. ... more   less
