B & B was excellent. Very clean and cozy. Location was great. Family dog Mollie was a joy and greeted us regularly. Even though weather was not the greatest it was still a very pleasant few days away.

The perfect place to unwind and recharge in nature. The owners have done an incredible job making this place perfect for those who love to camp and those who loathe to camp. Comfy beds, hot shower, kayaks and SUP’s every cooking appliance and utensil is provided. Just bring food. Fantastic place.

The staff at the Inn went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable. They are always available and they aren't overbearing! James and Eric are very kind. The B&B is beautiful, eclectic, cozy, and comes with Molly (a beautiful and cuddly dog)! You can unplug or connect, as they have free WiFi available. Nice option! The Superior room is quaint, with modern and clean washroom amenities. The self serve breakfast that was provided was DELICIOUS (I need the waffle recipe and maker now) and the live chickens are 10/10 - so great, from eating their eggs to going and visiting them in the yard. The house was a perfect spot to hang out when the weather wasn't very friendly. The property is stunning and when the water is calm, it is a perfect lake (for a beginner like me) to go out for a rip on a canoe or kayak. So grateful that they provide water sport gear, hammocks, and a fire pit by the lovely beach/dock!
Absolutely cannot wait for our next weekend up at Harmony!! Excited to try a tent this time.

Room tip: Superior room is private and perfect

We visited Harmony Outdoor Inn for 2 nights in June and has occupied two of the tents. It was our first time glamping and what a wonderful experience it was. James & team made our stay very comfortable. The property is very well maintained and our stay was quite comfortable. Property is neat and the team is excellent. It sure was the most comfortable way of camping! Parry Sound itself is a wonderful town and the property is located very close to all necessities (wallmart/sobeys/Tim’s/Starbucks/Marks..).

We also did the guided Kayak tour with James and it was great as well.

I would not stay here again. Harmony Outdoor Inn is more of a camping hostel complete with instructions to strip the sheets off your bed and sweep out your tent upon departure. This does not meet the standard of glamping - showers have a bad odour, no running water in the kitchen, outhouses instead of toilets etc. No one greeted me upon arrival at 6:30 pm and although I phoned and rang the bell at the main house, there was no one around and no note / instructions left for me. I located my tent and was shown the location of facilities by another guest. The Inn's phone line does not accept messages so I emailed a request for the water reservoir to be refilled on the second day. Such things should be monitored and topped up but there were no staff about. As the request was ignored, I tracked down someone loading kayaks in the parking lot just before dark and asked for his help to refill the reservoir. That was my sole interaction with anyone who worked there. Very odd. Most importantly, the Inn should publicize the fact that sleep will be affected by the sounds of heavy train traffic complete with hornblowing and road traffic on the busy Hwy 400 which is close enough to see from the property. They do provide earplugs which was my early clue that I would not be getting a good night's rest. The earplugs were somewhat helpful but not enough to mask the horn blasts. I now see from a response to other review complaints that the owners defend the train noise as being a matter of Parry Sound's proud heritage. That is not the point; they should disclose that the Inn is situated in a very noisy location and let their customers decide if that matters or not. Since this is a place that people intend to use for sleep, excessive noise is a consideration. The tent was fine (screens need repair), the site is pretty and the beach and waterfront are the highlight. Not at all worth $160/night. For $175 you can stay at the nearby Comfort Inn, a place to charge your phone overnight, have a private bathroom with running water and a good night's sleep so you can enjoy your day (they also change the beds and clean the room after you leave). Or for $40, you can camp at Killbear Provincial Park have the same or better amenities as Harmony Outdoor Inn - just bring your own tent.

Room tip: Bring a charged battery pack for your phone. The only plugs are in the outdoor kitchen.

Hello Jacqueline, thank you for coming to stay with us at Harmony Outdoor Inn. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your start with us as much as most people do. As we are conveniently located close to the town of Parry Sound which is close to HWY 400 on some nights there will be more noise from the road than others. We wish we could do something about this but it is out of our control. We have lots of comments about how nice it is to sleep in a tent and listen to the rain and the birds so I guess it just depends on if a tent is for you or not.
We are priced the way we are because we are a completely different experience than a Comfort Inn. You are right that you can charge your phone and have a private ensuite there but what we offer is more of an experience than just a night. We have a communal kitchen area where guests meet each other and share stories or a bottle of wine and charge their phones. We are the only waterfront accommodation in town and offer free use of kayaks, SUP and canoes. You can also just choose to sit in one of our many Muskoka chairs or hammocks. You can't prepare yourself a meal at the Comfort Inn but we supply everything for each tent to prepare meals during their stay.
I acknoledge that Harmony Outdoor Inn isn't for everyone and we strongly discourage people who are light sleepers or people who want to be close to their car or who would rather watch TV than listen to the rain on the tent. This is a unique expereience that many people enjoy. Thanks again for your stay.
