This was our second visit to Hay Lake Lodge. Both times we stayed, I assumed the other cabins were not rented. But I was told they were all booked! We saw a few people in the lodge when we went there, but otherwise it was so quiet and peaceful. You would hardly know there were

What kind feedback! Thank you for taking the time to let people know about your holiday here. IT's true, life is pretty quiet here, and it is a wonderful feeling not to be on a schedule.I know your attachment to Algonquin goes deep - I'll hope you can make it back soon :)

So this is hard to do. On one hand when you find a gem you want to keep it quiet so no one knows but on the other hand you want to share how wonderful this place is. Great location- away from the road noise. Just a few min. outside of Algonquin Park.We love this place. Cabin 4

If you're looking for a peaceful setting close to nature, this is the place! Our first visit to Hay Lake was on our honeymoon back in 1987, and our most recent was in June 2018. It's amazing how little has changed in those years, although there have been some improvements (like

It was such a treat having you here last week. Thank you for the feedback - we definitely want to convey the timeless qualities of this tranquil lake, yet offer something as contemporary as a wifi hotspot if you need to check in - and yes, screened porches are vital! Hope to see you again soon - the years go by so quickly!

Hay Lake Lodge is a wilderness gem on the edge of Algonquin Park... the perfect destination if you are looking for peace and quiet, and great hospitality. I went for a paddle every evening, and fell asleep listening to the singing of the loons. Breakfast was also a highlight...

Is this a pet friendly establishment? Thank you.
I am sorry - somehow this question slipped past me! In general we have a no pet policy ( and yes, wildlife is a factor) but we do have two cabins where we can make exceptions. Email us if you would be interested in our Pet Policy. Thanks for thinking of us!

"Cabin 5 was amazing. I had the best sleep I have had in weeks. The bed was incredible."
"Cabin 5 seems to have the most privacy from the other cabins. Cabin 6 has its own outdoor fire pit."
"Cabin 6 is the most isolated one and steps from the sandy beach"
"Wifi is available in the central lodge but not the cabins. This means you really will switch off!"
"Cabins 5 and 6 are a little more remote and have a little more privacy. Cabin 1 is large and located conveniently close to the marina."
