A Slice of Heaven
What a perfect vacation get away - this property is picture perfect and the perfect retreat from life "on the grid". Doug and Orla ensured we had everything we needed and then we just relaxed and idled our time away in this little slice of heaven. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful vacation. Our dogs had the best time ever as well - they explored every inch and are suitably exhausted. Wonderful time had by all! Susan, Andrew, Havoc and Tesla
Beautiful, serene location
Secluded, peaceful place with stunning scenery. The yurt was clean and comfortable, the cabin an enjoyable space to pass the time in. There were many many mosquitoes when we were there but between the bug spray we brought and the bug zappers that were supplied, we managed just fine. Luckily, they weren't as bad on the dock, so we were able to enjoy our morning coffee/tea there, have many swims and canoe around the lake.
A peaceful getaway for two
This property is stunning. It has everything you need; all you need to bring are toiletries, food, clothes, and personal items as everything else is provided. The lake is clean and warm (even in July!) and the sounds of the waterfall in the background as you go to sleep at night ensure a deep rest.
We were blessed with the first hot spell of the summer during our visit and we took advantage of all the outdoors could offer. The dock is wonderful for enjoying a morning cup of coffee and for diving off of to cool off. We saw lots of varied wildlife, including the local loons that live on the lake.
We took the provided canoe out on the lake but also rented paddle boards in Huntsville. This allowed us to explore the shoreline from a different lens but also to float out on the water in the afternoon sun. Unfortunately, because the mosquitoes were so plentiful, we didn't end up having any campfires in the evenings but would have like to.
Our stay was the perfect way to unplug from life and start off our summer. We will be back. : )

We had an amazing couple of days!
We got to enjoy both sunny days and rainy days, both of which were wonderful! The yurt was super cozy and the bed was very comfy! We brought our dog who had the best time ever running around by the lake and sleeping by the fire in the yurt.
We went to a local farmers market and bought delicious food which we cooked over the fire by the lake and on the bbq by the cabin. The cabin was perfect on the rainy day, we relaxed in the screened in porch and watched the rain fall on the lake.
Everything was perfect!
Thank you Tasmin for your wonderful complimentary review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay both rain and shine. We are delighted to hear that your dog enjoyed the 'glamping' experience too!. We would love for you be our guests again on your next Algonquin visit - Take care for now and look forward in seeing you again soon! Warmest regards, Doug and Orla

Magical Winter Getaway
My husband and I visited Doug and Orla's yurt to celebrate his birthday, and we could not have been happier with our experience! The yurt is extremely cozy. It is well-furnished, very warm from the wood stove, and perfectly secluded. The bed was very comfortable and we were well rested both nights of our stay. We snowshoed around the perimeter of the lake, which was stunningly beautiful and private. They mentioned there was a fire pit by the water that we were welcome to dig out if we wanted to try, which we successfully did! The property is a short drive from Algonquin, where we hiked the Track & Tower Trail. We can't wait to come back in the warm season to further explore their absolutely magical property!
Muskoka is just a 2 1/4 hour drive north of Toronto. We are located just 12 minutes from historical Huntsville and 30 minutes from the gateway to Algonquin Park, right in the heart of Muskoka District with its vast 2500 square miles of stunning pine and maple forests, 1600 lakes, waterfalls, cliffs and breathtaking scenery!
