One of the most important things to consider after you've decided where to travel for your Ontario vacation is where exactly you want to stay. Algonquin Park is one of the most beautiful couples or family destinations in the entire province. If you're planning a vacation to the Algonquin Park area, don't stay outside the park—stay in it.
Killarney Lodge is everything you are looking for in a memorable getaway. Ideally located within the perimeters of Algonquin Park, Killarney Lodge offers a vastly different nature experience compared to lodging you might find outside of the park. Their incredible location provides you with peace and quiet, lots of wildlife, and some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable.
Family owned and operated for over 85 years, Killarney Lodge is a historic and rustic retreat that has been impeccably updated over the years to offer travellers an amazing experience. Owner Eric Miglin says it best: "Generations of guests have returned over and over to Killarney Lodge because the experience here is unique in Algonquin Park. Guests wake to the sound of loons on the water, relax on their cabin deck overlooking Lake of Two Rivers, and enjoy perfectly prepared meals just steps from their cabin. It's an experience you can only get by staying inside the park."
He's right. Killarney's unique Algonquin experience is something you won't easily find anywhere else. The park is home to over 7,700 square kilometres of lush forests, sparkling rivers and lakes, and exceptionally stunning natural beauty. Staying inside the park, you can escape from the hustle-bustle of city life and focus on reconnecting with your loved ones—and yourself.
Killarney Lodge provides three delicious meals included daily as well as your own personal canoe waiting at your cabin. Spend your days enjoying the tranquility of this magical destination as you explore the waters of the lake by canoe or walk the 15 self-guided woodland trails around the park. Keep your eyes open for wildlife including moose, deer, fox, beaver, and turtles. And, the lodge will prepare a delicious packed lunch that you can take with you on your adventure.
If you're simply looking to take things easy, you can indulge in that, too. Each cabin has a large deck with comfortable chairs. Killarney features a private sandy beach where you can lay back and enjoy the views, or take one of our kayaks or paddle boards for a quiet paddle out on a true wilderness lake. There is also a cozy and romantic guest lounge at the lodge where you can curl up and read a good book, assemble a puzzle, play a board game or simply relax with a cup of tea in front of the woodturning fireplace. In the evenings, you will be amazed by the starry night skies glittering up above the lake.
"Killarney Lodge is one of the most beautiful spots in Algonquin Park and Ontario. It was perfect to spend time together." said Jamie, a recent guest to Killarney. "The activities are great—such a treat to put away technology and enjoy the docks, canoes, shuffleboard and trails.
The food is 5 star—truly. What better way than to enjoy a cottage weekend and not have to cook or clean up, while being served a white linen table cloth dining experience.
The staff are outstanding. The sweetest, most pleasant, accommodating and helpful group ready and able to make our stay perfection."
So don't just take our word for it. Killarney Lodge is an exceptional Ontario destination that brings together the comfort of home and the peace of the great outdoors. Whether you choose to explore the wonders of Algonquin Park, or just rest and bask in its beauty, Killarney Lodge is the perfect home-base to experience it all.
