Un-rough it in Algonquin Park
It's time for Arowhon Pines. Time to reconnect with what matters. To sit back and listen to your heart. To be inspired by nature. Time for that great book. Time to paddle an empty lake. Shaped naturally by the hills, lakes, and streams of Algonquin Park, Arowhon is just imperfect enough to be amazing. Amazing people, amazing food, warm fires.
Arowhon is a living place full of personality – we offer authenticity, hospitality, and respect. We offer the simple elegance of comfortable, rustic accommodation, good food made from quality local ingredients, prepared with love, and the “luxury” of peace and tranquility in the wilderness where you can spend time with a moose, listen to a loon, canoe, swim and relax. We look forward to welcoming you.

As we welcome our guests for the final Arowhon Pines weekend of 2020, we can’t help but jot down a few thoughts about this past season.
Like everyone we followed the pandemic news daily, all the while trying to plan our response. We spent months designing, debating and revising every practice that had been done for the past 30 plus years. All departments were affected; it was like operating a whole new resort! In May and June, you would have seen us measuring distances all over the resort, rearranging furnishings, sadly retiring the famous buffet tables, trying out new menus and getting accustomed to life in masks..
We opened July 7th with a few dozen lovely guests who spent a hot and sunny week dining on our ‘patio’, aka the dining room verandah. Although glorious, we were happy one week later to move into the dining room, greatly distanced. Early on, we made the decision to operate at one half capacity and never regretted it. We wanted to keep Arowhon smaller, quieter, even more peaceful, and safer for guests and staff. Everyone enjoyed wonderful swims in the lake and walks in the woods, saw moose, beaver and otters and befriended the rabbits foraging everywhere. Nature soothed our souls.
