What Triptoes Really Likes:
Killarney Lodge is set on a peninsula surrounded by the Lake of Two Rivers in the heart of Algonquin Park in some of Canada’s most beautiful and pristine wilderness. Accommodation is in comfortable private lakeside log and pine cabins decorated in a charming Canadian country style. Each cabin has its own canoe and resident chipmunks at the door. A lovely family retreat.
The log cabins at Killarney are the quintessential Canadian experience and are a real treat deep in the heart of Ontario’s most famous wilderness. Algonquin Park provides over 7,700 square kilometers of forests, lakes and rivers of unspoiled beauty. The sound of the loons drifting over the lake, a moose taking a leisurely stroll through the lily pads, a beaver building a dam or any of the many other spectacular sights provide memories to last a lifetime. Relax in your private lakeside cabin or by the fire in the lodge lounge. Each cabin is decorated in a comfortable, Canadian country style and rates include three meals daily and your own canoe. In keeping with the quiet nature of Killarney Lodge, there are no radios, televisions or telephones in the cabins. As Killarney is deep in Algonquin Park, canoeing plays a big part of daily life at the lodge. Families can paddle across the lake, take a picnic and find the many hiking tails to explore and discover. Bikes are also available to rent and there is a safe sandy beach for younger children. Guided canoe trips and complete outfitting packages for single or multi-day canoe trips are easily arranged and come complete with guide, canoe, food and camping supplies. Killarney makes a great combination with a family holiday that includes Toronto and Niagara Falls.
