April 16th At the Algonquin Lakeside Inn

Wow, what a difference two weeks can make, sunshine today and 19 degrees. Spring has finally decided to show up and melt all the snow. The Lake is still mostly frozen but there are signs that we will soon be able to launch the canoes and kayaks from the beach !

Moose Algonquin Park

May is the time when you see Moose and people alike heading out along highway 60 through Algonquin Park after the long winter. Our advice to our guests is sunrise or sundown for successful Moose watching. We got this excellent video from youtube !

  • but if it is a romantic stay, Anniversary etc. there is always the Algonquin Theatre located in Huntsville, just 25 minutes east of the Algonquin Inn on highway 60.
  • Opening June 1st is an Equestrian Trail Riding Stables, just within walking distance of our Inn. Reservations will have to be made prior to a guests arrival, and it will be on a cash basis as Credit card and ATM facilities will not be onsite.We will be posting more details as they come in !

April 3rd, 2008

Finally some sunshine ! and temperatures above freezing at the Algonquin Inn. Could this mean Spring is just around the corner ?
Gary went out and took these pictures so that our previous guests and possilble future guests can take a look and see in real time what it is like here today !

Discounted Algonquin Park Day Passes

Two years ago we began offering our guests who stayed with us two or more days the opportunity to buy one of our passes for a day at half the price charged at the Park Gate.
  • This turned out to be a very popular program.
  • The reason that we can only offer it to our guests staying two or more days is that the pass must be returned at the end of the day, so that it is available to our incoming guests.
  • There is not an unlimited supply and therefore if we do not have any left, our guests will then have to purchase one at the gate.
  • When a park pass is given out the guest will have a deposit of Cdn $ 100 added to their room charge and as soon as the pass is returned, this deposit is deleted from their bill.

We hope that our guests will enjoy this program this year also !
