We were at Algonquin Park and decided to visit the resort to look around briefly and ask questions potentially for a future stay. We were with our well trained quiet dog, on a leash of course. In the three minutes we were there we chatted with some guests and got many compliments on our dog. Our positive impression was broken when a woman ( owner or manager) stepped out of a door in the main building and abruptly yelled to us that she had a bull mastiff that does not like dogs. I did not know who she was and did not quite understand the comment so I asked if the dog would be on a leash when she took him out. She abruptly said: No. The implication was that we stay at our own risk if we did not want our dog attacked. Of course we immediately left. This plays out badly in terms of sheer courtesy and diplomacy. If the resort does not allow dogs ( we don;t know) she could have told us politely and we would have left. Or, she could have said the resort does not allow dogs but we could walk around briefly and then could we leave. A veiled threat does not behoove a top end resort such as this. On our way back to our car we were accompanied by Lucy, a puppy, who was very friendly and adorable and who, we were told, belonged to the owner and was happily running around everywhere. Read less

We spent the August long weekend here and could not have asked for a better time. Everything from the incredibly kind and thoughtful staff, the amazing cabins and scrumptious food ensured we had the kind of getaway that we will be dreaming of for years to come. Seeing a moose up close and personal was the magical cherry on top.

The Pines is on the beautiful Lake Joe and surrounded by forests. Other guests saw moose but we settled for a rabbit and a bullfrog. Fantastic food and the staff, particularly Jenna were attentive, they couldn't do enough for you and always remembered our names. The cabin was basic but comfortable.

The Pines is on the beautiful Lake Joe and surrounded by forests. Other guests saw moose but we settled for a rabbit and a bullfrog. Fantastic food and the staff, particularly Jenna were attentive, they couldn't do enough for you and always remembered our names. The cabin was basic but comfortable. We took a canoe out onto the lake and were helped on our way by a friendly groundskeeper. Luggage magically appeared in our room and then the car - everything was taken care of, no tipping needed and we got exceptional service. Read less

Stayed here for 4 nights as a couple. Initially looks like rustic cabins but once inside beautifully decorated rooms. We were in an 8 room share own room with ensuite, shared lounge Peaceful is understated, no wifi or TV a chance to reconnect. From start to finish the staff were outstanding, friendly and so helpful An outstanding feature was the food, absolutely superb, rivals top class restaurants. Everything fresh and cooked to order so hard to choose as l could have eaten everything. Meals inclusive. No alcohol in location you just take your own. Canoes on site to use at will with all safety equipment, great for exploring lakes and observing wildlife, Moose were seen on all days. Only wildlife not keen on were mosquitos but that is something over which there is no control. Suggest long sleeve tops and long pants for evening if walking on trails net covers came in useful. They Don't bother you on dock so you can relax in the sun. I would certainly recommend Arowhon as the perfect place to unwind Read less
