Killarney Lodge is everything you are looking for in a memorable getaway. Ideally located along the corridor that connects the east and west gates within the perimeter of Algonquin Park, this historic lodge offers all the comforts of home while allowing you to discover and explore. With its glorious maple hills, breathtaking rocky cliffs, quiet lakes, and abundant wildlife, Algonquin welcomes visitors from around the world. A popular way to experience this jewel of Ontario's provincial parks is by camping but if sleeping in a tent and eating freeze-dried food isn’t your style, you can join the generations of guests that have chosen Killarney Lodge as their home base to enjoy all Algonquin has to offer.
Family owned and operated for over 85 years, this beautiful retreat is an oasis of comfort nestled on the shores of Lake of Two Rivers. Elegantly furnished in charming Canadiana, guests stay in their choice of comfortable private waterside cabins, each with a personal canoe ready to take on a quiet paddle. The friendly and helpful staff take care of everything at this all-inclusive lodge. Perfectly prepared meals are served steps away from your cabin in Killarney’s historic dining room and if you want to spend the day exploring the park, they will send you off with a hearty packed lunch. If you prefer to unwind with a book or puzzle, the guest lounge is a cozy place to curl up by the fire where you can serve yourself tea or coffee and a cookie or two. If the weather is warm, Killarney’s private beach is a great place for a refreshing swim or to take out one of several kayaks or paddleboards that are waiting on the shore. Owner Eric Miglin describes it perfectly when he says, “Killarney Lodge is a special place where you can stay and relax in the peace and quiet of a beautiful Canadian woodland lake while in the comfort of a beautiful historic lodge”
Nestled in the peaceful serenity of trees and water listening to the loon’s call, guests could quite happily spend their entire stay enjoying its comforts but Killarney Lodge is uniquely situated along the main corridor where a short drive takes guests to the many attractions the park has to offer. You can tour the world-class Visitor’s Centre or spend time in the Algonquin Art Centre that showcases Canada’s foremost wilderness and wildlife artists. Or if you are feeling more active, there are 15 interpretive walking trails that vary from easy boardwalk strolls to more challenging walks that take hikers to scenic lookouts. Another option is a nearby bike rental with numerous paths through the woods to explore. And don’t be surprised if you see moose, deer, beavers and other wildlife on your adventures.
This unique combination of solitude among the wildlife and modern-day offerings will be hard to find elsewhere. Miglin says it best, "With cozy cabins and fine country dining, Killarney Lodge offers the perfect blend of Algonquin’s wilderness and pampered comfort.”
