The Dining Room

Unforgettable food is central to the Arowhon experience. Savour every last bite in our hand-hewn log dining room.

In-house guests enjoy morning coffee by the pink glow of the sunrise on the wrap-around porch. Impromptu summer barbecue lunches by the lake, hearty packed picnic lunches for exploring the Park, afternoon tea and scones and weekend lunch buffets are all part of the dining experience when you stay.

Bring along your favourite wine and we will uncork it at no charge.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the dining room welcomes cottagers and visitors as well. Dress is casual and meal bookings for visitors are limited. Please call our office to reserve your place- during busy times, space is limited. To guarantee your table, we will request a credit card number at the time of booking. You may reach us at 1-866-633-5661 or 705-633-5661. As a courtesy, please give us 24-48 hours notice for cancellations. Larger groups - ask about our pontoon boat ride of the lakes.

Please add 15% service charge in lieu of tipping, then 13% HST.

We look forward to feeding you! 




After 38 years of standing in kitchens, I am enjoying a semester at Algonquin College in Ottawa, teaching Cooking Class 080.  The students and I, we started in January, have cooked lunch together every Monday and Friday, at Restaurant International at the Woodroffe campus.

For many of these students, this is their first time in a professional kitchen and their first practical semester!  It has been great fun watching the progress made.  Each service is better than the one before, and I feel proud that some of the knowledge I have managed to pass on will help these students thrive in a trade that has always been good to me – and employs thousands of new cooks every year. 

I’ve also learned the importance of patience and clear communication – and by teaching, I will become a better chef myself!

The snow is starting to melt, and the kitchen renovations have gotten to the point where the vision is reality, and I can't wait to see it humming with action.

See you soon!
