Algonquin Island Cabin for Couples Only

If you are looking for a private island or an Algonquin Cabin for a romantic vacation, consider the Algonquin Island Retreat. Tiny, "off the grid" and with extraordinary lakeside views in all directions, the island Cabin is very comfortable and has all the amenities you need for the ultimate Algonquin couples only getaway. Solar power translates to running hot water and lights, a wood stove , a stunning second floor walk out bedroom deck, fully stocked kitchen, cosy living and storm room and yes a hot shower! Given the location at Algonquin Park access point # 1, these amenities are really first class! To see more pictures of the Algonquin Island Retreat, click here.
You begin your couples only vacation by arriving at the Algonquin Canoe Outpost where you rendezvous with a Voyageur Quest staff who helps unload your bags and pack your canoe. Don't worry about canoe experience. If you have never been in a canoe or need a few tips , the friendly staff take you through a comprehensive canoe lesson and in no time you are ready for the 15 minute paddle to the island.

The canoeing on Kawawaymog lake is fantastic. Explore the lake's many islands or paddle down the the Amable du Fond river. Rest tired bones in the floating sauna.
The 3 decks and two docks of the private island are wonderful places to read, relax, sip a drink and photograph or paint. From this vantage, the sunsets, sunrises and night skies are unforgettable.

September is the best time to see Algonquin Park Fall colours.

If you like the fall colours, September is the time to come to Algonquin Park. With cool nights and clear days, the Algonquin forests starts to change as early as the last week of August and are filled with colour by September 20. I love to come in the middle of the change - typically between September 15 to 25 where you see a dramatic change every day. The days are summer like and the water still warm enough for a dip. The morning mist is heavy providing living paintings every morning. Peak colour changes every year but the last 10 days of September are always incredible. This year , the colours appear to be peaking September 27 to 30.

Our three uniquque Algonquin properties offer warm and cozy retreats and ideal bases to catch the colour show. The Algonquin Island Retreat for couples is an extraordinary location to photogrpah or paint as the colours and water surround the cabin. The Algonquin Log Cabin is a good choice for those looking for a fall colour guided adventure filled with fun and interesting excursions and tasty harvest meals. The soloar powered Algonquin Cottage Outpost is another great choice for a private cabin or cottage to base your weekend fall colour adventure.
