We stayed here for 3 nights in September. I have to say that at first we really didn't get 'it'. We thought we were coming to a resort but once we realised it was just a beautiful place to stay and you had to organise your own activities we relaxed and loved it. The setting is absolutely stunning. The accommodation is very clean and nicely decorated. Very comfortable beds. Bathrooms were great. Amazing showers! Staff were very efficient and very unobtrusive. Food was exceptionally good. The service in the restaurant always first class. Erik is a great maitre D and he runs a very efficient slick outfit. We loved our stay here and would certainly recommend it to our friends. We are from the UK and it would have been helpful to us for one of the reception staff to explain about the area and the system of trails etc. also about the use of the facilities. I felt it was assumed we knew about the area and the facilities - which was definitely not the case. Lack of 3G and WIFI is a bit of a disadvantage but it helps you realise that we can live without it! The fact that you have to bring your own wine is another downside but as long as you're aware of it and buy in advance it is manageable. It means you can buy and enjoy lovely wine that you haven't paid the earth for in the restaurant. They're very good and open the wine and bring a wine cooler to your table. Their packed lunches are amazing too. Overall we had a fantastic 3 nights at Arowhorn and would love to return one day. Thank you! Read less

We spent 3 nights at Arowhon Pines at the beginning of October to relax at the end of our holiday. The setting on Little Joe lake is gorgeous - especially at this time of year when the trees are displaying the fall colours. Our room was cosy and clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We stayed in Sherwood, a lodge with a few bedrooms (6, I think) and a shared sitting area. You could hear a bit of noise through the bedroom walls, but everyone is asked to be considerate after 10pm and our neighbours were so it didn’t cause a problem. The food was great - lots of choice at every meal and even though we were last into the dining room for dinner every day, we still got our first choice from the menu. The packed lunches are amazing too - delicious and generous sandwiches, salads and baked goods. Service in the restaurant and at reception was friendly and attentive. We walked most of the walking trails from the lodge - they are forest trails not paths so they are more challenging than the paths in the National Park but they are all well marked. Some were easier (yellow and red) and some were more challenging (white and orange) but we enjoyed them all. We also saw a moose on one of the trails which was amazing! We also used the free canoes to explore the lakes. We had a fantastic time and left Arowhon feeling relaxed and well-fed. Read less

The only drawback is that it is expensive. Read less

So impressed! We -mother and daughter - unplugged completely for three days of hiking ,canoeing, swimming, campfires, movie watching, relaxation and honestly some of the best food ever in one of the most natural, wild, beautiful settings ever . We are well -travelled and wish we'd discovered this years ago. Fluffy robes, hot showers, a private deck beside the lake. Friendly and flawless service. Simple, authentic, restorative experience. And the food, the food the food. We'll be back for the homemade cinnamon buns, pickles, jams and pates, scottish kippers, filet mignon, peach crisp, homemade icecream and maple mousse. Read less
