Arowhon Adventure: The Canoe Trip

Posted by Arowhon Friends on February 28, 2015

Start your day on the Arowhon dock and watch the morning mist rise up from the lake.

Paddle a canoe on a day trip and explore a series of lakes, streams and narrows, with names like Lost Joe, Burnt Island and Tepee. Follow the shorelines that inspired the paintings of Tom Thomson. Stretch out your limbs with a swim in cool, fresh waters. Enjoy a picnic lunch al fresco at a wilderness campsite – look for loons, a moose or beaver. Slow down and watch the natural beauty unfold from your canoe.


For many guests, a vacation at Arowhon provides the opportunity to experience their first canoe or kayak trip in the wilderness. First timers can receive basic canoe instruction. It’s safe and easy - and a spectacular way to experience nature.

Contact Adam to start your canoe adventure.

Leave No Trace Canada

Arowhon Pines is now a partner with Leave No Trace Canada.

Leave No Trace Canada is a non-profit organization that strives to promote responsible outdoor recreation.  When we paddle the lakes or hike the trails, Leave No Trace Canada teaches us to be mindful of our presence in nature. We learn how even seemingly harmless actions like tossing an apple core into the woods or getting too close to wildlife can have an impact.

A Destination Wedding……in Algonquin!

Posted by Arowhon Friends on January 6, 2015

No Passport Required.

Algonquin Park holds a special place in the hearts of many couples. Maybe you had your first canoe tripping experience here. Perhaps you discovered your own strength and your partner’s sense of humour on that wet and windy portage. Is the tent in your pack, honey? The moose that you saw through the morning mist, the smell of breakfast cooking over a fire and the sight of a million stars at night are memories that keep you coming back to Algonquin. We’re happy that you’re ready to share these experiences with your family and friends.  Congratulations on your engagement!  

We look forward to working with you to make your dream of a simple, outdoor Park wedding a reality.  There are still a few weekends this season when you can book Arowhon Pines exclusively with a minimum of 80 guests - May 29/30 and June 5/6 and June 12/13 and July 11/12, 2015.  

For 2016, we have May 27/28, June 3 and 4, June 10/11, June 17/18, June 24/25 and July 8/9.

An Arowhon wedding is all inclusive - accommodation in log cabins along the lakeshore, six meals from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch, prepared with care using local ingredients and free use of all recreational facilities – canoes, kayaks, SUP boards, sailboats, hiking trails, tennis, sauna and more.

We’ll help with your invitations, arrange flowers from our garden to your tables, plan a sit down ceremony by the lake and recommend wedding officiants and other local suppliers. All you need to bring is clothes, a toothbrush, a bottle of champagne or two and your family and best friends. An exclusive wedding weekend (two nights, six meals) in the middle of Algonquin this spring will cost about $45,000 for 80 people. Most couples distribute some of that cost to their guests.

A smaller, casual gathering can be booked anytime. For as low as $8,800 this spring, we can accommodate 16 guests in a lovely 8 Room Cabin by the lake, inclusive of six meals and all facilities.

Please visit our website for more information - and for a true couple’s wedding at Arowhon.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Closing up Arowhon Pines for 2014

Posted by Arowhon Friends on October 13, 2014

Closing up Arowhon Pines is always bittersweet.

First and foremost is that we will miss your friendly faces.

We have a long list of jobs to do this fall and estimate being here for most of the winter, as we continue to renovate the rooms and update our kitchen.  

Starting tomorrow though, we join the nine to five shift with weekends off (!!!) and look forward to spending some time with our families!

Thank you for a wonderful, busy season! Stay in touch! See you next year!

Love Theresa, David and Adam
And all of us from Arowhon Pines.

Early September at Arowhon Pines

Posted by Arowhon Friends on September 14, 2014


Last night's temperature dipped to almost freezing and we all woke to a
frosty morning. With the mist still on the lake, some brave souls still
went for a swim.  Autumn is a favourite time of year for many, with crisp, clear nights, great
for star gazing and sunny days, perfect for hiking and spending time on the
lake.  The leaves have started to change and the Arowhon Road is listed as among
the best places for spectacular autumn views!

There is still availability in the fall including Thanksgiving Weekend to
enjoy with your family and friends.

We look forward to welcoming you!
