I’ve just returned from my 7th year in a row, week-long stay at Arowhon Pines, where perfection is the watchword, where attention to detail is evident at all levels, from the continuous renovations that blend into the environment so well you’d think they’d always been that way, to the lovingly prepared food always with a new twist every year, to the friendly and helpful housekeeping staff, to the hardworking kitchen and dining room staff; to the groundskeepers and maintenance men, whose invisible presence is felt in all the beauty, cleanliness and perfection around the property. Nothing is too much trouble for the approachable yet unobtrusive staff. I ate well, slept well, played well and worked well. Heaven couldn’t possibly be more beautiful or more perfect. Coming back is always like coming home to an amazing family. It’s my annual pilgrimage for rest, rejuvenation and restoration, while the Arowhon muse helps me write up a storm on my books and blog. Thank you to Theresa, Adam, David, Edward, Erik and everyone for your effective, tireless, welcoming hospitality. I didn’t think you could improve on perfection, but you’ve done it again! On a scale of 1-10, you truly are a 25! Read less

My husband and I visited AP on Monday June 17 with the intent to stay for two evenings. We had just gotten married a few days before and were looking forward to a few nights of peace and quiet. Needless to say we were absolutely blown away by our visit, so much so that we extended our stay to one more evening, even though there was talk of rain coming! It is just SO romantic - no cell service/wifi, you feel totally off the grid while enjoying the most delicious food and unbeatable hospitality. And bring your own wine/beer just adds to the charm - we got to enjoy a bottle of champagne each night at dinner which was just so fun!! Speaking of dinner, the food is incredible - there is an appetizer table which could be a meal in itself - fresh salad, charceuterie, fresh pate, veggies and dip, pickled herring, dumplings - truly everything!! Dinner is a beautiful cut of meat or fish, and the desert table is to die for. One lunch we were too full to have dessert and the waiter heard me say that crème brulee was my favorite and I was sad to be missing it, and he saved me one to enjoy after dinner. They really do everything they can to add a personal touch to your stay :) We stayed in the waynewood cottage and enjoyed mornings on the gorgeous grounds, hiking thorugh algonquin during the day and returning for a beautiful dinner and evening listening to the loons call on our screened in porch. At night we lit a fire and enjoyed looking through the books in our room - everything just has so much charm. I will say that while we visited the mosquitoes were quite bad, however they provided us with mosquito net hats and as long as you keep moving you're fine. They also have canoes, and the bugs weren't on the water. We are so thankful to AP for making our first few days as newlyweds so magical, and we can't wait to come back to celebrate aniversaries and milestones with AP. Read less

Just spent a fantastic weekend in Arowhon Pines (for a wedding). Beautiful facility, excellent amenities, fabulous food! The staff were super friendly and helpful with every request that was made to them. The only downside is the mosquitoes - you really need to cover every inch of exposed skin with mosquito repellent if you want to spend time outdoors. Also note that there is practically no cellphone reception at the hotel (although you can get good reception a few miles down the road on Hwy 60) and no Internet access in the guest rooms and cabins. But this is not a downside! Read less

We just had a wonderful week at Arowhon Pines. It’s such a magical place. The combination of being out in nature, in a canoe or walking a trail and then coming back when the dinner bell rings to an absolutely fabulous meal, friendly staff and great service can’t be beat. Thank you to everyone there who made our stay so enjoyable.

This was our first stay at Arowhon as a family, though we’ve come here for lunch many times. The Algonquin Park setting on Little Jo Lake is spectacular. The design of the lodge is timeless and so well maintained. Staff are very professional, friendly, and helpful. Cottages are charming with all the amenities one could want... including lots of firewood! Very tasteful renovations in the rooms. One major highly is the food...inventive, wonderful choice, and presentation. We loved the canoes, sauna and movie nights. Read less
