I have had the great privilege of visiting the Pines for years with my family, and it never disappoints. On a recent visit after its reopening, we were impressed and calmed by the precautions put into place as well as the maintenance of so much of what makes Arowhon unique.

I have had the great privilege of visiting the Pines for years with my family, and it never disappoints. On a recent visit after its reopening, we were impressed and calmed by the precautions put into place as well as the maintenance of so much of what makes Arowhon unique. (We, for example, surprisingly didn't miss the wonderful buffets as they were recreated in creative ways.) If you have the chance to go to Arowhon Pines, take it. You will not regret the restorative, grounding experience. Read less

Had the most amazing 3 night stay at Arowhon Pines. Our recently renovated private cabin overlooked the lake and was beautifully appointed and oh so comfortable. Each of the 3 daily gourmet meals was exquisite and Michelin worthy. Service was great, especially Theresa. We saw a cow and bull moose during our kayak trips and a few loons as well.… Read more

What an incredible experience! My wife and I and our two kids (ages 7 and 5) had the pleasure of visiting Arowhon Pines this past weekend. The setting is absolutely lovely. The rooms are comfortable and well renovated. The service is professional, personable, and impeccable. The food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) is superb, including the picnic lunch that was packed for us on a full-day outing. My wife and I are both busy professionals, and the fact there is no wifi or cell-service allowed us a much-needed disconnect. For our kids, the small(ish) property allowed for them to run back and forth from the dining room to our hotel room without (helicopter) supervision, which is also great. I strongly recommend this place for adults needing to relax and for families needing time to connect and share experiences in Algonquin Park. Special thanks to the owners and staff for giving us the best trip of our summer. We are already looking forward to next year! Read less

After being holed up in Toronto for the last 4 months, my spouse and I spent a blissful week at Arowhon in mid-July. As long-time Arowhon guests, we figured that our stay would be comfortable and safe, but our experience surpassed even our high expectations. All protective procedures were in place, but with the usual Arowhon grace and style: meal service, artistic notices, and attractive sanitizing containers (not an industrial one in sight). We immediately relaxed, and our COVID anxieties vanished to the point that we quickly added an extra two days to our stay. The loss of the pine table - so much a special feature of Arowhon’s dining room - was made up for at dinner by individual plates of charcuterie and other delights, a wonderful barbecue lunch, and exceptional meals beautifully served, both on the verandah and the dining room, when COVID restrictions on in-room dining were lifted. Thank you 'Team Arowhon: bravo to Theresa, David, and Adam for careful COVID planning and preparations. Special thanks to the dining room staff we met - Erik, Sarah, and Richard – and to Anne-Marie and Jenna at reception. They should take great pride in their ability to adjust to the realities of COVID without any decrease in their consistently high level of service. Arowhon's wonderful location and amenities have not changed, and offering marvellous opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, ,hiking and swimming - or simply reading and enjoying Arowhon’s spectacular scenery and tranquillity.
